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.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 4/23/2015. Pours hazy deep golden yellow color with a 2 finger dense and rocky white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, wheat, cracker, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with bright citrus/piney hops and light-moderate pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, wheat, cracker, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange zest, light pine, wheat, cracker, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Very nice complexity of bright citrus/piney hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 5.5%. Overall this is a very nice hoppy pale wheat ale. All around good compelxity and robustness of bright citrus/piney hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Pours hazy straw color with a 2-finger white head. Aroma of grapefruit hops with a note of grass mixed in. Maybe some lemon too. Medium body, lightly watery, with a brief finish. Flavor of grapefruit, with notes of black pepper and grass. Some earthy yeast as well.

Ok definitely a hybrid. Flavor explosion. Session? Malt mild. Not strong on wheat, hop malt. Over all very good. Would drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy, deep yellow with a tall white head. Citrusy aroma, with some hops. Kind of a slightly hoppy wheat beer, as advertised. Pretty good.

Pours cream soda color. It’s cloudy, I love it!. Pretty nice thick and foamy head, decent lacing.

Aroma is grapefruit and citrus. Hops are pretty strong too. It really smells great!

I taste citrus right away, hops aren’t as strong as expected and the wheat is stronger than expected. That great citrus aroma really adds to the flavor. It’s well balanced between sweet and bitter.

Mouthfeel is a toughie. It’s hoppy bitter finish, and wheaty aftertaste. It’s a medium-light mouthfeel.

Overall I was surprised, This is delicious. There’s a lot going on within this beer, and it’s great. Must try!!

cheap (5958) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2015
This bottle from vintage. Decent light piney aroma. Looks like a cloudy lighter colored beer. First taste is rather astringent hops with a good sizzle. After each swig the hop bite seems to fade a little and then goes a tad wheaty. Yes, each swig evolves like that; first the pine smell, then the sharp hop bite and finally a fade into a high personality wheat ale.

From the bottle. Light yellow glow with a fluffy white head. Aroma of lemon, grass and grain. Taste is yellow fruits, some grains, crisp, and light. Somewhat dry, taste lingers a little. Nice beer, especially for warm climates. Would drink again.

Bork (455) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Fresh and citrusy with a refreshing fizziness. Bitterness turns rather tart on finish and leaves the mouth dry.

3.3
JStax (6995) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 27, 2015
12 ounce bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pours a somewhat hazy copper color with a big white head of foam. Pretty good retention. The aroma has vanilla, herbal tea, grass, some citrus. The taste is sweet, bready, lemony, some vanilla. Light to medium body. Doughy, bready finish. Medium carbonation.

Old rating. Decent enough session. Slightly hazy gold. Some citrus, plenty of wheat, light and crushable.
