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.

First sampled from a 12 oz shorty, with a stamped on "best by" date. I live the in the KC metro, and this was a much anticipated release, and I wasn't disappointed. A pretty big nose of fruity and citrus hops. It definitely drinks like a wheat, with a mouthfeel much like their Unfiltered Wheat. Very refreshing, and it will certainly be a staple, especially when the Midwest summer heat cranks up.

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.

4.3/5  rDev +9.7%

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.

Hazy light straw yellow colored. An inch of foam caps the top of this beer. Aroma of wheat and faint grapefruit like hops greets me. Mouthfeel is very light and crisp. The front of the palate is grapefruit like hops. I would describe this as a session IPA with wheat. Light, crisp, and refreshing.
