This beer explodes with a nose of hops that makes your mouth water. It drink like a wheat beer that begs you to come back for more! One of the best beers I’ve had in quite a while!!!

Hazy yellow with a big frothy white head. Plenty of filmy lacing all the way down. Very IPA-like aroma of citrus and grass to go along with the wheat. There’s something in there that make me thin of spicy rye too. The taste is spicy and bitter. Very refreshing with a light body. Good stuff.

Light golden pour with large white head. Smells of fresh lemon and earthy aromas. Like a gumball head replica.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Deep yellow/golden body with a fizzy, white head, slowly diminishing. Aroma of citrus, fresh hop leafs, floral soap, toasted grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Any wheat flavor is muted by resin hop flavor along with floral notes. Plus, there was an odd taste of petroleum and metal. That flavor was not overwhelming, but it was there until the lingerng bitterness and carbonation overtook it.

Bottle. Poured a cloudy yellowish color with a smaller white head. Plenty of lacing was left on the side of the glass as it went. Aroma was citrus, banana, spruce and grapefruit. Flavor was floral notes, with spices and citrus. Some hop bitters in the finish. The more I drink this beer the more I like it.

First sampled from a 12 oz shorty, with a stamped on "best by" date. I live the in the KC metro, and this was a much anticipated release, and I wasn’t disappointed. A pretty big nose of fruity and citrus hops. It definitely drinks like a wheat, with a mouthfeel much like their Unfiltered Wheat. Very refreshing, and it will certainly be a staple, especially when the Midwest summer heat cranks up.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle from the Binnys South Loop Build-A-6 Rack (Chicago, IL). Pours a hazy yellow hue, lively carbonation, mellow haze and dulled middle with brighter sunny edges. A frothy white head as a good mellow layer laces ok. Sticks around small. Aromas are grassy and lemony hops, fresher lively aromas offer florals, flaked wheat and bready malts. Fairly dry, nice hopping is lively and lemony, grassy. Touches of grapefruit, lemongrass. Initial is lighter end of the fold preaching earthy hops, grass and florals, growing lemon after the initial. Lighter sessionable malt body offers more florals, lemongrass, kiss of gumball and fruity sweetness. Middle is lighter mellow malt body, dry bread, touch of dough. Straw, cereal elements, lighter crisp dry malt elements. Nose grows on me as it warms, offering some melon, citrus, tropical fruit sweetness. Nothing potent, but firm and enjoyable. Flavors are solid if a bit more bland compared to the nose. Lingering dryness, straw and gentle citrus and fruity hops. It’s not complex, but it’s a solid more fruity hop forward sessioner. Nice brew.

Because I live in KC and hoped (hopped) I’d have a home-grown version of 3F Gumballhead, I’m remiss to say that this brew tastes like blvd wheat with hops added just to call it a hoppy wheat. True believers take heart, and it’s good but spoils go to the victors, not to play it safe brews.
