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.

Hazy yellow with fizzy white head. Aroma is mild must and hops. Taste is light hop and lemon. Good yard work beer.

12 oz. bottle pours a hazy golden color with medium white head and some lacing. Aroma has lemon, pineapple, grass, and perhaps banana. Taste is bitter. Body is medium with lively carbonation and an almost creamy mouthfeel. It seems more like a German Hefeweizen to me. I wasn’t expecting all the lemon, but enjoyed it nonetheless.

Bottle. Hoppy and cereal grain aroma. Malty taste with a citrus after taste. Very nice finish. This is a good beer for a cookout. Will have more.

December 23rd, 2013 - Boulevard’s 80 Acre Hoppy Wheat brings a lot of vivaciousness to a style that often sits and stews in its own, mulling, lazy flavors. The aroma begins with fruits and esters, replete with bananas, and even a touch of a grapefruit. On reflection, this makes a great deal of sense, given the title and style. Also, somewhere on the periphery of the scent, is a little white grape, giving a bit of a boost to acidity and brightness. The flavor is wheaty, but I note this in my notes as "wheaty?" The grain touch is lighter than I might have expected, replaced with a custardy banana mush, a touch of pear, and a nice-fruity hops balance. I actually prefer this over the usual cracked wheat flavor, though it might buck style guides.

Sample at the Ace of Cups Moonlight Beer Fest on 10/3/15. Pours clear yellow with a medium white head. Aroma of creamy wheat and lemon. Creamy wheat flavor with a grainy, old hop finish.

I really liked this beer a lot. Pours a nice hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. Smells of citrus, pine, grass and some kind of fruit........pineapple, maybe? Slightly creamy body, almost like a Hefeweizen. A little bit of bitterness shining through at the end. Superbly balanced.

Citrus orange zest hoppy goodness in a beautiful bed of wheat tartness. Hoppy summer in a bottle. Give me another. I love this style and this is one of the many reasons why.

Bottle to pint. Cloudy yellow pour with a thin white head. Minimal lacing. Orange peel, citrus hops, and some wheat in the aroma. Flavor is similar - fairly hoppy. Dry mouthfeel.
