Boulevard Brewing Company 80-Acre Hoppy Wheat Beer
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Boulevard Brewing Company 80-Acre Hoppy Wheat Beer. I picked this one up at the brewery on a somewhat recent trip to Kansas City.
From the Boulevard Brewing Company website: “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.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a large sudsy white head and excellent lacing.
Aroma: Lemon and other citrus notes, wheat, light malts and yeast.
Taste: Solid wheat flavors upfront, sweet with an excellent citrus hop blast mixed in. A slight bit bready and yeasty thing going on as well.
Overall: I’m a fan of Boulevard Brewing Company 80-Acre Hoppy Wheat Beer and would keep this one around in my beer fridge if it were available locally. Bursting with citrus flavors this 5.5% ABV offering is well worth trying if you find yourself in Boulevard country.
