With roots in two of todays 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.

fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Pours a milky yellow-gold with a 2 finger, frothy white head. Aroma is full of citrus (smells very cascade-like) hops, a little pine, dusty wheat, fruity notes and a light bready note. Flavor is sweetish wheat and lemon up front, some mineral, bready yeast, sweet hay and leafy citrusy hops. Sweet grapefuit, dough and lemon to the finish. Much less hoppy in flavor than aroma, with very little bitterness. Palate is a little heavy for a 5.5% beer with such a crisp aroma and flavor, add the overly light (for this beer), a little bit of chalkiness and it really does a bit of a disservice to the other components, keeping the beer from being as light and refreshing as it should be. Pretty nice wheat ale all things considered, but the aroma really sets you up for an experience that the beer just doesnt match otherwise.

Voodoo (608) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2017
Poured a slightly hazy straw golden with a dense white head which lingered......aroma is bread, earth, clove.....taste follows aroma. Very little hoped for hop taste, but a touch of clove finish.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of bready malt, peppery spices, floral hops, clove. Flavor of tangy fruits, floral notes, lemon, pale malt, clove, spices, orange zest. Decent beer, not too hoppy, but a little different than your standard wheat beer, 7/4/7/4/14 (3.6/5)

Bottle from West Side. Pours a clear deep straw gold with 2 fingers of foam. Light grain on the nose, grassy hops with some light lemon. Clean and crisp with active carbonation. Finish is quite dry with a bit of yeast. Has great Belgian dryness like a De La Senne beer in a way.

12 oz bottle from the sampler case. It was different but not that great -- nothing here to distinguish if from the rest.

piscator34 (2386) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 8, 2016
Draft. Hazy gold in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of orange blossom, malted wheat, and pale malt. Quite soft on the palate with more wheat, juicy and clean citrus, and cut grass. Medium bodied with a mild but balancing bitterness. Mellow but tasty overall.
