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.

From bottle. Hazy pale yellow with a large white head. Aromas of malt, citrus, yeast, light fruit, spice and grass. Tart and a little sour, but very refreshing. Awesome beer.

12oz bottle thanks to RobertDale from the local for local 5 1/2 swap. Pours a cloudy pale straw color with 2 fingers of pillowy white head. Lots of sticky lacing. Aroma of wheat, sweet citrus, pineapple and lemon pulp, and plastic. Taste is of sweet pineapple juice, orange and lemon skins, wheat, and hints of grass and hay. Very crisp and refreshing. I’m really digging this beer! Thanks Bob!

kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Bottle Pours a slightly hazy yellow body with a nice frothy white head that left some heavy lacing. Couldn’t look much better in the glass. The flavor is really hoppy for a Wheat Ale, bright and citrusy with a yeasty wheat malt base. The flavor is equally hoppy with a lemony and citrusy hop punch up front. The bitterness is softened a bit by the light yeastiness and doughy pale malt and wheat base. Very refreshing and thirst quenching overall. Light bodied and crisp up front but finishes very soft and gentle with prickly carbonation. Really nice beer, much more interesting than the average Wheat Ale.

Aroma: Citrusy hoppy aroma
Appearance: Cloudy pale straw with white head
Taste: Citrusy
Palate: Medium mouthfeel of a wheat beer, but all in all a light body. Nice smooth finish.
Overall: This is a really good and unique beer. The citrus, hoppyness transcend the wheat base, but with the smoothness of a wheat beer.

9/7/13. On tap at Bleu Cafe. Hazy golden pour, a touch of orange, under a nice khaki head. Big American hop aroma, fresh, green, lots of citrus, with doughy, almost biscuity malts. Lightly sweet flavor, citrus forward, especially orange, bits of doughy malts and toast. Nice.

Hoppier than their Unfiltered Wheat. Tastes wonderful. Will be keeping some of this in my beer refrigerator.

On draft at Rustico in Ballston. The beer is hazy and yellow with a half inch of pure white head. Aromas of citrus fruits, wheat, fresh hops. Refreshing and delicious. The wheat and big hop character work so well together. A great summer beer. Light in body and easy drinking. It would be easy to toss back a few pints of this.

On tap at Hops and Pie. Pour is lightly hazy yellow with a big white head and great lacing. Grassy, wheaty, slightly citrusy, bready, grapefruity, orange, and pineapple aroma. Taste is grassy, biscuit, bread, light citrus, lemons, orange peel, weed, and light salt with a light bitter finish. Light body with high carbonation. Great hoppy wheat; perfect for summer.
