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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Pours a hazy (~65% opacity) bright & deep golden color with a large head. SRM of 8. (4.25)

Aroma: Light aromas of lemon citrus and tart & wheat aroma. Fairly subtle. (3.50)

Flavor: Mild flavors upfront of lemon citrus and wheat. This then turns into a hoppy tart lemon and yeast flavor that lingers into the finish. There's a fruity and slight funky and juicy fruit flavor to the yeast here. (3.50)

Feel: Medium-bodied. Moderate carbonation. A yeasty and slightly tart finish. (3.50)

Overall: Similar to the Boulevard wheat with more tart lemon citrus and yeast. The yeast has a slight Brett or wild yeast funk to it imparting some juicyfruit flavors. (Final Rating: 3.75)

Very hazy straw yellow with a decent foamy white head that hangs around and produces some wispy lace.
The aroma is pine and citrus with a bit of fresh bread.
The taste is citrus - lemon, grapefruit, orange, notes of pine resin and nice wheat malt for support. Hops are somewhat gentler than most IPAs and very complimentary to the wheat base. The finish is dry with a lingering citrus and pine note that makes you want more.
The body is light/medium and smooth in the mouth,decent lingering carbonation.
Altogether this is a very enjoyable brew, good as a summer cooler or just for enjoyment anytime, goes well with most food.

Full disclosure...I am not a big fan of hoppy beers. That being said, this one is not too bad. Yes, it has the usual hop bite but it is not an overpowering one. I am a big fan of wheat beers and this one does a decent job of respecting the heritage and flavor of the style, while adding the additional hops. Will I drink it again....probably. It isn't in my wheelhouse of favorites though. Again, there is nothing wrong with the beer, it just is not my sort of thing overall.

Insta-fresh, citrus, crisp, less sweet and less breadtastic than a standard wheat- but maybe it's overpowered by the hops, higher-power/ more ferocious Blue Moon that's also more bodacious, buoyant and tangy mouth,
-wheat has more protein than barley so the wheat beers are hazier and with thicker heads!

Draft. Hazy straw with one finger head. Moderate pine, earthy, and citrus hops in the aroma. Similar flavor with a little wheat flavor shining through. A little dank.

I bought this beer wanting to try something new as I have been a Porter Stout guy for a while. I was really impressed, great aromas very good strong wheat taste and way to easy to drink this will be the light in a fridge full of dark. Solid product
