COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With roots in two of today’s most popular brewing styles, 80-Acre Hoppy Wheat Beer is the result of careful cultivation by our brewers and cellarmen. Their efforts to craft a hybrid yielded a bumper crop of flavor; a delightfully distinctive ale with the aroma of an IPA and the refreshing taste of a wheat beer.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy with a frothy top bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated hazy yellow colored body. The mild aroma was citrus and malty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a bubbly aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of wheat and hops as advertised. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

Draft at Fado. Hazy greenish yellow pour with a foamy white ring. Nice dry floral grassy hops with a bit of honey sweetness. Feels more like a light IPA than a wheat ale.

Light in color. Enjoyable, refreshing. Differs from Boulevard's popular Wheat beer. Drink it cold and from a glass and you'll be pleased. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours hazy pale yellow with a medium slowly fading white head, some light lacing. Aroma is sweet citrus, mild grapefruity notes, wheat, citrus floral hops. Taste sane as aroma with a mild citrus grapefruit hops bitterness. Palate is medium body, mildly crisp on the palate. Finishes with a wheat some grassy flavor, mildly sweet citrus grapefruit hops bitterness. Overall a pleasant and easy going brew.

Pours a hazy golden honey color with medium white head. Aroma has light sweetness and wheaty spice. Flavor follows suit...more tangy than sweet right up front followed by earthy bitterness and tea...wheaty spice. Mouthfeel is light / medium and lively with a dry earthy finish.

Appearance is cloudy yellow to pale golden, with a moderate frothy white foam cap. Aroma is mango and citrus, with a definitive spicy clove. Taste is a light, bready malt with a grassy, light citrus flavor and acidity on the back end. Mouthfeel is light to medium with a crisp moderate carbonation. Finishes dry with a lingering grassy flavor and bitterness

Pouring this into one of my Rock Bottom shakers displayed a hazy yellow body with a sustained, creamy white head. The aroma is bread dough and flour with some soft citrus scents, lemon, mainly. Soft mouthfeel. It tastes much like it smells. The lemon is stronger and there’s a hint of zest, but overall it’s a fairly uneventful drink. Still, it is refreshing to drink a "hoppy wheat beer" (quoted from the label) without the brewery trying to pass it off as a "White IPA," whatever the frak that’s supposed to be.
