Good looking hazy wheat ale with a rockin 1/2 inch of froth on top. Scent is mostly wheat and grain with a good hop citrus. Taste is actually very balanced good sweetness to it almost like a banana to a hefeweizen. Good body to it as well very smooth and session able not watery.

Overall a nice take on the classic wheat. Impressed.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours orange yellow with a fluffy white head. Smells of sweet grain with a piney and citrus hop note. Tastes of wheat and banana with citrus hop notes. Beer is light bodied and easy drinking, good carbonation. Overall, a very good beer.

This beer pours a murky golden color. Head is white, and one finger. The nose is very strong with the hops, but I also get a faint "wheat" smell. The taste is very interesting. I get a blend of the hops bitterness, with the banana sweetness of the wheat. It's fairly mellow, but an interesting combination.

80 Acre Hoppy Wheat has a nice wheat and hops flavor. This hybrid is a nice, unique smooth brew that is well done. I've had other brews by Boulevard Brewery. This, so far is my favorite from them.

Tasted in a Spiegelau wit glass from a 12 oz bottle on December 26, 2016. Look is hazy pale gold with a thick foamy white head and lingering lacing. Smell is wheat, orange, grass, lemon, spice and mint aromas. Taste is hoppy, bitter citrus, grass with bread and grain malt flavors. Feel is crisp with a dry and slightly bitter finish.

Out of a 12 ounce bottle that was purchased at the brewery itself, but consumed at home, on to the beer:

An inch of head clings above this hazy yellow ale, while spotty lace dots the glass. Hoppy wheat indeed, as the aromas of orange zest and zesty grass prepares me for a hop smackdown. It tastes just as that. Good squeezes of citrus to go along with tangerine, orange , and also grass for something different. While the body is light, the crisp bubbles bring a pleasant sting.

Is this the Midwest's answer to Fortunate Islands? If so, then it is a very good response.
