3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Golden pour with a nice white head, good lacing on the glass. Aroma is a little grassy, with some citrus and pine hop notes. I hate to say it but this bottle may have been a bit skunky, but not too bad. However Iíve had this one before. Flavor has a mild wheat malt start a little sweet and citrusy finish. Solid mouth feel, mellow carbonation for a nice smooth and drinkable beer. Refreshing as well.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bomber, no date, though I believe itís from 2005. Pours a hazy golden with a moderate white head. Aroma of grapefruit and pine--like all 3F brews-- with some caramel malts and grassy sweetness. This tastes like itís going to be an APA up front, but the bitterness never really kicks in. Lots of sweetness and grassy wheat in there to balance it out. Very good

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Had this one from a 22 oz. bottle. (Three Floyds has some unique art on this label!) Poured a nice looking yellow and had a big head that left lots of lacing. The aroma was slightly sweet and so was the first sip. Not too hoppy ... this was unlike any wheat beer Iíve ever had. Iíll wait ítil it gets a bit warmer and try this one again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Light golden yellow pour has slight haze and big carbonation bubbles. A 3Finger thick and creamy head left clumpy and random lacing. Subdued 3F hop aroma with sweet grapefruit, hidden malt and a slight grassy/piney presence. Smells like perfume. Lemon at front of taste and not a lot else. Blends to sweet honey and finishes good and long. Definite pine bite which soaks in a few seconds after swallow. Bottle was slightly oxidized, maybe not the freshest. Palate was smooth and slightly carbonated and slides down throat. Paired great with the BBQ pizza I was having while watching Donnie Darko.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle-I am not a fan of hoppier beers, but can appreciate them. Golden color with a strong unique aroma. If you like hops, you have to try this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours golden with a nice white head. Moderate lacing. Lemony hop aroma with some breadiness and yeast in the background. Very light wheat malt flavor without being watery with a spicy and fruity hop counterbalance. Bitter and lemony finish. A very crisp and refreshing wheat beer for the hophead. Although I am not a fan of the aspirin chalky characterics of the amarillo hop.

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2006 friend had a bomber over winter break, but iíve had this a few times. probably my favorite wheat beer (though not a very characteristic wheat beer). very fruity, very hoppy; very tasty. definitely banana/bubblegum here.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle thanks to kramer17801. Pours clear light amber with moderate pure white sudsy head. I didnít see any cloudiness, even with a roughly-handled bottle. Intense (well, for a wheat beer) aroma of hops. More complex in the mouth than I would have thought given the nose. Hops mix with more typical fruity wheat flavors at the start (though the hops definitely dominate) and then finishes moderately bitter. Clean and well-carbonated on the palate. A decent beer, but not as wheat-y as I like my wheats. I didnít get hardly any bubblegum/banana/etc flavors.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle poured a hazy light gold with bubbles rising slowly to form a thick white head that evolves into a thin film that leaves considerable lacing. Slightly hoppy aroma with a sweet typical wheat background. Sweet and lemony up front with a bit of bitterness to finish it off. The citrus makes it quite refreshing. The palate is smooth, but watery.
