Notes/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.

Although I had this beer at the Hats off to Homebrewers (Deschutes Base Camp) event at the Amigoni Urban Winery a few months ago, it was not a large enough sample size for me to review it, and I had quite a few beers before that anyway. However, I remembered it being good, so I grabbed a six pack of it recently. Side poured with standard vigor from a bottle into a Boulevard glass.

Appearance - Pours a nice golden wheat color, just what you would expect from the label and beer description. Minimal head and head retention, little to no lacing on the glass. Certainly a hazy golden golden color, not a clear beer at all. Looks tasty.

Smell - Fruity, with a citrus and lemon that originates from the hops. There is a mild wheaty, bread malt undertone, but the big smell is certainly hoppy

Taste - Very good. Balanced, smooth, refreshing, everything you want. You get a hint of standard fare wheat beer up front, which is soon overtaken by more zesty, powerful hops notes of citrus, lemon, and pepper through the rest of the drink.

Mouthfeel - Finishes clean and smooth, well balanced, just an excellent drink overall. Clean and crisp, with a zip. Carbonated medium

Overall - I really like this beer, as did my wife, which is shocking. I think it is well balanced, can be drank at anytime of the year (although fall is best), and is certainly worth the investment. Highly recommended, I may go buy a few more sixers so I have plenty. Good job Boulevard!

Poured into a nonic a hazed lemony color with a fluffy one finger bones white head atop.Aromas of toasted wheat and light citric hops,the aromaes underwhelmed me a little.Anice low carbonated feel to the beer,toasted with that tinge of iron on the palate with a smack of citric hops to save the day in the finish.With a good shot of hops I could see myself driniking this on a humid summer day and being satisfied with it.

On tap @ BBC Franklin, MA

Poured a cloudy straw yellow with a thin white head, lots of carbonation bubbles running throughout.

The smell is slightly piney with a mineral quality and a touch of copper.

The flavor is a bit bland. It has light traces of fruity wheat and a light coppery flavor with just a touch of juniper bitterness. I find the coppery tin like flavor to be a bit distracting.

The mouthfeel has a nice light creamyness to it.

Overall not a bad wheat, just a bit to bland and a touch flawed to me.

12 oz bottle. Pours very hazy straw yellow with a huge rocky white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is wheaty malts, tropical fruits and some piney, lightly resiny, hops.

The flavor is slightly sweet wheaty malts and some tropical fruits with decent piney / resiny bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, an interesting hoppy wheat.

12oz brown bottle with a freshness date.

LOOK: Slightly hazed pale yellow, big chunky head

SMELL: Fresh wheat, orangey hop, grassy, lemon oil, mild spice, vague mint, leafy

TASTE: Fresh, crisp, lighter bodied, snappy, hoppy, slightly bitter, fresh grass, bready, grainy, mild citrus character, drying finish, lightly hoppy after taste

No doubt about it, I could quaff this one back on the regular basis. Love beers with wheat, love hops, etc. A win all around for me so a respectful nod to the brewery for this one.

Poured into a Sam Adams perfect Pint Glass

Appearance: high carbonation, bright yellow-gold in color, one inch head, hazy

Smell: wheat and citrus hops

Taste: wheaty, grass, and citrusy hops that are especially present at the end

Mouthfeel: crisp, light bodied, high carbonation, sweetish start with bitterness coming in the middle and a bit more prominent towards the end.

Overall: Super clean. For the style, this is one of my favorites. A perfect summer beer that I could have several of. Nice pilsner like taste with a touch of pleasant bitterness that is never too bitter. One of Boulevards better small beers that I have had the pleasure of trying.

The beer pours a slightly hazy straw color with a white head. The aroma has a good bit of pine, as well as some light orange citrus notes. There is also some nice wheat in the aroma. The flavor is very similar. The wheat really comes through up front, with some lighter pine and orange notes, as well as some grass and a bit of pepper. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice.
