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.

Hazy golden colored body; a poofy, lumpy head sits atop leaving behind some thick lacing. Aromas are initially floral hops before turning super juicy and bright. Freshly squeezed OJ, lemon, and other citrus surrounding a subtle biscuity wheat note. Pleasant, gentle hop flavors, lemon tea, wheat, mellow citrus juice, and a floral sweetness. Drying in the finish, fluffy, light, and crisp. I had one while grilling and I imagine that's a perfect situation for drinking this beer.

Bottle BB 8/8/13.

A: Hazy gold, good retaining three finger head. Great lace.

S: Big sweet citrus punch, oranges, tangerine, malted wheat twang in the back.

T: A bit subdued compared to the flavor, tropical fruit punch kick, lemons, grapefruit etc. with you're standard a herbal, wheaty twang. Slightly grassy on the finish.

M: Feels light to medium, smooth, actually very smooth. Drinks real easy.

O: Summer beer for sure. Wheats aren't my favorite style, but this does a nice combo of an IPA and a wheat. Nose was the star of the show however. Would make a great warm weather brew fur shur.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - bright yellow with a huge, dense, thick, pure white head that has great retention

S - huge orange peel aroma

T - wheat, huge orange peel and citrus, mild herbal bitterness in the finish

M - light to medium bodied, smooth, well carbonated

This is a nice wheat beer and it is indeed hoppy, but the I prefer a bit of bitterness from my hops. This was about as much citrus as you could possibly get out hops. In the end it wasn't bad, but for something claiming to be "a hoppy wheat beer", I'm expecting a bit more.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Color is a pale straw yellow with a hint of hazy amber; light 1.5 finger head that left minimal lacing. Scent is mostly fruity - bananas, apples, and even a hint of sweet peaches; also has a unique soda-bread scent, likely due to the wheat and earthy, bitter hops. Taste was spot on with the description - a hoppy, wheat beer; both styles of beer lend their citrus-forward attributes; orange peel from the wit and tart grapefruit from the ipa side. Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing; perfect to enjoy while outside on a warm day; went well with grilled chicken, cheesy couscous, and sautéed green beans.

Overall, highly recommend to anyone. Terrific combo of sweet and bitter. Great for someone who is on the fence about hop-centric beers. Cheers!

Pours a three finger white head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Pale, almost clear amber color. Light-medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Strong nose of pine hops, flavor is a balance of pine hops and caramel malt. Decent wheat. $2.19 for a 12oz bottle from Julio's Liquors Westborough, MA.
