Pours a golden orangish wheat. Hops, orange, and wheat nose. Hops and citrus fusion in taste, with a slightly oily wheat finish. Refreshing overall.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2008 Iíll sum this up at the start; I could drink this brew every day, all summer long. Low abv+great taste=all day drinking !
The gumballhead has an orange yellow color with a quickly fading white head. Great, intense fresh floral hop smell. Light medium body with a smooth mouthfeel. Great taste mimics the smell with big hop flavors followed by a malty, grainy sweetness to finish.
Excellent beer here.

This beer pours a cloudy golden color, with a thin almost tan lace. The smell is of wheat, lemon, honey, some grass essence. The taste is very smooth, kind of sweet from the honey and a little tart from the lemons. It really goes well together. This is a great wheat ale one that I could drink all year around.

Smooth and mildly bitter. Lots of hop flavor without the bitterness. Citrus flavors, but not really grapefruit (makes sense with the lack of bitterness) Smells just like DFH 60 min. Also has a bit of that woody/cedar flavor. No pine. Mild sweetness keeps it balanced but not at all malty. Not much wheat flavor. Some soapy flavor in the beginning of the sip. If not for ths soap flavor, this would score much higher. Still, itís a very good, innovative beer.

22 oz bomber. Pours a yellowish golden cloudy color with a thick white head. Aroma is piney with lots of fresh hops present along with lemon citrus and wheat. Flavor is lemony with loads of hops and light wheat. Excellent !!! Another gem from the 3 Floyds brothers.

Bottle from SlobThanks!
Pours thick and amber, like a nice IPA. Not as much head as a typical weizen. Aroma is very hoppy, like an IPA. In fact, as a wheat beer this makes a darn good IPA. Flavor is full and citrusy, with hints of grapefruit and orange. A slight strawberry seems to be lingering in the finish. Good beer; Iíd drink another.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2006 This is sweet and citrus. Such a good wheat beer. Iíve had it plenty of times in a bottle and a couple of times on tap. The amarillos really come out on draft.

Bottle: Thanks to Indiana_Red for sharing this highly acclaimed wheat beer from a premiere microbrewery. It is not what I expected for an American Wheat, but still enjoyable. It was much hoppier than I expected beginning with the aromas. Ahhh, the juniper shrub aromas that so often characterize hops. And it actually tasted like it was brewed with junipers as well more than wheat. It has a real smooth feel and a great aftertaste. I liked it even though it wasnít what I expected.

Bottle Poured a hazy unfiltered golden peach color with a nice off white head and decent white lacing. Nose was much more hoppy than I anticipated for the style. Soft light grains as well. Flavor was a bit tart and dry due to the "boat loads" of hops in the brew. Not at all what I expected. Is there such a thing as an Imperial Wheat Ale?
Still, tasty and up to snuff for a reputable brewer lke 3F
Thanks to OhioDad for this one
