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.

Cloudy pale gold. White foam trace head but with decent lacing. Smells fairly light of wheat and is non-descript. Taste is lemony, crisp, mildly bitter and clean. A very light washing of sweetness. Decent medium body with a firm body. Crisp carbonation. Overall is crisp, refreshing and enjoyable if not fantastic.

3.89/5  rDev -0.8%

Appearance: Pours a hazy goldenrod color; the head was a little small for a wheat but left strands of lacing behind

Smell: Bright and lemony; quite fragrant, with undertones of bread

Taste: Dominated by the lemony hops, there are also undertones of bread and grass; herbal and tangy flavors linger well into the finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation; very crisp

Overall: A bit too lemony for my taste buds, I almost find myself puckering from the tanginess; a nice twist on the style, nevertheless

Appearance: Cl.oudy yellow with 1/4-inch foamy white head that leaves nice lacing. Very effervescent.

Aroma: Wheat and citrus with light coriander. Lemongrass comes through as it warms.

Taste: Subdued floral hops rides the tongue - bitterness increases as beer warms. Wheat malt is present. Spice and lemon notes.

Mouthfeel: Dry ... ish, with a bit of slick in the mouth.

Overall: Lacks some of the characteristics of a good wheat, nevertheless, a good warm weather beer with some nuance.
