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.

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 .
