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.

Pale gold, hazed, thick white cap has good retention and lacing.

S/T - Juicy fruity hops, slightly floral, taste has more lemon with some spiciness and a wheat twang at the end.

M - Light to medium, smooth consistency, hops are slightly abrasive.

O - Nice hoppy wheat ale. A go-to for the style.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a hazy golden color. A large, foamy white head is formed with three fingers and a soft texture. It fades moderately quickly, and leaves spotty lacing down the glass.

S: There is a decent amount of grapefruit, orange, grass, and lemon notes that betrays a rock-solid hop profile. What I'm not quite so sure about is the faint phenolic touch I also pick up. It sadly detracts from an otherwise very good aroma.

T: The flavor reveals lush citrusy notes throughout, and even an initial grapefruit-esque juiciness. It finishes with light touches of grass and lemon, and the dodgy phenols I picked up in the nose is kept in control here. Really likable if a touch mild.

M: I like how lush and creamy this is, helping to keep carbonation in check - and making it a bit syrupy at times. Aside from me wanting a drier finish, this has a very nice feel and great drinkability.

O: The more I have from Boulevard, the more I grow to like them. When done right, this is a style I really enjoy, and this beer in particular is a success. I'd gladly make this a regular in my fridge.

ok, boulevard, you sneaked this one under my radar. i had tried the unfiltered wheat and thought it was pretty good but plain, so i thought i would give this a shot. this is a great, clean, refreshing summer beer. hands down. the fruity hops are delivered in a light, carbonated, hazy brew that screams summertime. to me. this reminded me of a lighter, snappier version of little sumpin sumpin or gumballhead,,,same general hop profile but significantly lighter with not as much hop aftertaste, the hop burps are also not nearly as concentrated...again, a fine thirst quenching summer offering that i will enjoy often. good job, boulevard!

A - hazy golden yellow, typical wheat beer color.

S: Wonderful smell of hops up front, very pleasing aroma.

T: This beer has a very nice balance between the wheat and hops. You can taste the hops up front and all throughout your sip but the wheat balances everything out and smoothes it over.

M: A little thin but what wheat beer isn't? About what you would excpect.

O: I'm very pleased with this beer. I could drink a ton of these and be a happy man! Perfect for these hot summer days!! They nailed it.

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.
