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.

a. straw with a touch of orange. not completly clear. a big, rocky white head that settles to a respectable layer of little bubbles and leave nice splotches of lacing on the glass.

s. cereal grains, oranges, and lemons.

t: a little sweet at first, turning into a grass and husk flavor, a bit of wheat twang leading into sweet orange/lemon and a touch of bitterness from the hops.

m. nothing too great here, medium body and level of carbonation.

o. a pretty nice mix of wheat and hops here. would drink this regularly given it was available in my area and decently priced. the only change i would like would to be to tone down the sweetness a touch. a big thumbs up to the wife for picking this out of the blue for me on a trip to missouri based on the fact she knows i like wheat beers and ipas/hops.

Bottle poured into a pilsener glass

Poured a nice 4 finger white foam head which settled into a delightful white foam cap with healthy lacings on the side of the glass

Fresh clean aroma of hops, citrusy lemon and orang rind. Hazy golden yellow. Opaque with the faintest of carbonation.

Wheat with hops , lemony , clean fresh and nice after taste. Light mouthfeel.

This would be a great beer on a hot summer day. Clean and delicious even in the winter! Really nice beer that I will definitely enjoy again.

Pours a bright, opaque yellow with spotty lacing and average retention.

Smell is fruity, a little sour and some bitter hops.

Tangy, crisp with some fruit a then ends with a subtle bitterness.

Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing.

Overall a tasty example of an American wheat ale with a subtle hop addition.

On-tap 3/15/2013 at British Beer Company in Walpole, MA, served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep yellow color, with a large dense white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains wheat, citrus, hops and light caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of citrus and caramel. Then some breadiness comes in from wheat and a hearty but not too heavy malt character. The hops presence is a little weak for a beer with the word “hoppy” in its name, but it’s strong enough to bring a good balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, it’s a very poundable beer worth drinking for a long time.

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.
