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.

On tap at Big Hunt.

Pours a hazy golden yellow. Very active carbonation in the glass. Thin pale head on top.

Smell of wheat and citrus hops. A little sweet smell.

Taste follows the smell. Sweeter upfront, enough hops to notice, but balanced well with the wheat. Refreshing.

Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but smooth going down.

Overall, not bad.

Served in nonic. Poured a cloudy straw yellow with about 1/2 inch of white head that low retention and lacing.

The aroma had a bright, lemony-citrus hop scent over a base of soft wheat. A slight bit of yeast also popped around the edges of the scent. This was one of those rare instances for me where the aroma was stronger than the taste. The grain was very muted, the hops a lot softer, and the yeast virtually unnoticeable across the tongue.

The body was nice, full, smooth, and with a clean finish. Drinkability was good, I'd maybe have a few at a cookout. Overall, a pleasant enough brew, not one that stands out, but probably a decent choice for refreshment. Worth trying if you see it.

80 acre hoppy wheat pours a hazy yellow color, with a nice large frothy head. There is a dry hoppy aroma. The taste has a nice pale, and wheat like flavors, with hints of hops to finish the taste. Good flavors, refreshing, could use a little more carbonation and was slightly watery. Overall however this is a very nice hoppier wheat style beer.

A: poured into a shaker pint. Forms a nice two finger head that dissipates pretty quickly. This is a nice looking hazy gold. Lacing is minimal but OK for a wheat beer.

S: It has a nice citrus aroma from the hops. Not overpowering but nice for a wheat beer.

T: I tend to like hoppy beers but am enjoying wheat beer now that the heat has hit NC. This one gives you just enough hops to let you know they are there but it doesn't overpower the wheat taste.

M: Medium bodied but very nice for this style.

O: This one hits all of my buttons for a summer brew. Easy drinking, fairly low ABV, and looks great in the glass.
