Beer added by: Reaper16 on 01-07-2011

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.

Best by: 08/10/14 -- So it is past its best by date. I'm pretty disappointed by that.

Appearance: Hazy light golden body with a fluffy white head that stands very well and leaves some spotted lacing.

Aroma: Very fresh hop aroma. Spicy with a bit of earthy bay leaf smell to it. It's very nice.

Taste: More of that spicy earthy flavor to it. It taste a bit like thyme. A hint of mint in the backgrond. I don't get any wheat flavor which is a bit disappointing, and there isn't any perceptible yeast character.

Mouthfeel: It's smooth and light, medium bitterness, and a bit drier than I'd expect from a wheat beer...it also doesn't have the presence on the palate that most wheat beers have.

Overall: Despite being past the best by date on the bottle, the beer was good. I think it could be because the store I bought it from kept it refrigerated. The only thing that might identify this beer as a wheat beer to me is by the appearance...there really was no tell-tale sign in the aroma or flavor. The hop aroma and flavors are excellent. If you are an APA fan where you want a lot of hop flavor and aroma but not a ton of bitterness, this is right up your alley. If you don't like wheat beers, don't be turned off by this beer because it doesn't show. If you do like wheat beers, this leaves a lot to be desired. Overall it is a really good beer though, and the framework really relies on the hops...and if it were a house that frame would be made of solid oak.
