4.33/5 rDev +10.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: 80 Acre looks like a very creamy Hoegaarden. Lemon meringue pie in a glass to be honest, complete with white peaks of foam.
Smell: Pine and lemon hops. Extremely odd for a wheat ale, but very enjoyable.
Taste/Mouthfeel: Excellent flavors. A hybrid between an IPA and a wit, complete with grapefruit, lemon, orange, and a hint of lemon. Crispy, yeasty mouthfeel to finish.
Overall: I would define this as an excellent gateway for Blue Moon drinkers looking for more excitement.
Serving type: on-tap

3.55/5 rDev -9.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: straw yellow to a golden yellow color. huge 2-3 finger foamy white head that fades a little too quickly but leaves a nice strong lacing behind. completely cloudy and opaque.
Smell: very sweet wheaty smell, a touch of bubblegum, the smell is quite hoppy, lots of citrus, some earthiness and a little pine.
Taste: opens up with lots of initial sweetness, lots from wheat, some caramel malts and some bubblegum. Hops come in at the end but are completely overwhelmed by the sweet malts. some citrus, earth and pine again.
Mouthfeel: nice and light, not quite as refreshing as i'd like do to the overpowering sweetness
Overall: the hoppiness worked very well in the aroma, but falls off just a little too much in the taste. If that balance worked out this would be a very nice wheat beer.
Serving type: bottle
