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.

I'm not a fan of American wheat beers but with Boulevard new to SePa I bought one to sample and much to my dismay it was pretty good.
It was hoppy in the taste and in the nose.
In the nose it had a citrusy lemony grapefruit smell.
The taste reminded me alot of lemon drop candies.
Hazy straw color with a decent head.

12 oz bottle poured into a shaker pint.

Appearance
Cloudy yellow with 1 finger of white head. Light carbonation with slight yeast sediment.

Nose
Lemon, wheat, white grapefruit, and papaya.

Taste
Very lemony. Tangy wheat, lemon juice, lemongrass, and touches of papaya. Crisp wheaty backbone with notes of pale maltiness. Perhaps a drizzle of caramel.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, crisp, clean, and refreshing.

Overall
Sure has a decent wheat bill. Slightly tangy with lots of lemon.

On tap at the Cloverleaf Tavern, Caldwell, NJ.

Decent beer. Nice lemony hop profile, but I'm getting a strong herbal flavor and it's off-putting. Seems to be subsiding as I'm making my way through the glass though. Orange is coming through a bit more. Finishes really clean and dry. I dk. Decent beer I guess, but I'm still getting these herbal notes that are typical of witbiers. Low carbonation and medium mouthfeel.
