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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Cl.oudy yellow with 1/4-inch foamy white head that leaves nice lacing. Very effervescent.

Aroma: Wheat and citrus with light coriander. Lemongrass comes through as it warms.

Taste: Subdued floral hops rides the tongue - bitterness increases as beer warms. Wheat malt is present. Spice and lemon notes.

Mouthfeel: Dry ... ish, with a bit of slick in the mouth.

Overall: Lacks some of the characteristics of a good wheat, nevertheless, a good warm weather beer with some nuance.

12oz bottle poured into standard pint glass. Best before date of 10/27/13, so just under the wire here.

Poured a slightly cloudy hazy yellow with a generous white fluffy head. Lacing was good, and head maintained.

Got some lemon and wheat from the nose, with a touch of hops wafting through.

This is a good tasting beer! Lemon is soft, and the hop bite on sides and back of tongue is spot on. Very nice balance. Refreshing after a days warring with the leaves, but with bite too.

Mouth was around medium, slightly dry on the finish. Pleasant lemon taste hung around, but didn't tingle like a citrus normally would. Liking it.

Overall, a nice suprise. Not sure how I would feel about one say a month from bottling date, since I enjoyed the balance immensely. So much, that I grabbed another one from the fridge .
