4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 22oz. bomber bottle with the distinctive Three Floyds label with a map to the brewery on the lower right side of label, summer 2006 version. Made a good appearance, poured a cloudy golden hued orange with a foamy white that settled into a thin, bubbly lacing, moderate carbonation overall. Had a amarillo hops nose, citric grapefruity and orangey with just a light wheat maltiness at the edges. A crisp, smooth medium bodied mouth feel, very good drinkability. Big hop taste upfront, grapefruity, zesty and a delicious orangey, sharp, but rolling bitterness on the tongue, a crisp sweet wheat malty backbone with the distinctive Three Floyds yeastiness and a crisp and bitter citric fruity and malty finish.
The perversion of the pale wheat ale that you expect from Three Floyds, original, tasty and quite quaffable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I had this once at a beer taste and was not impressed. It was near room temp. Bought yesterday after reading all the hype from some of you. Hesitant to pay $5.50 for a bomber of 5% wheat beer. Poured avg gold color no head, Where TF is the wheat? Not even present. What I got was more akin to a nice resiny IPA but could not detect the claimed lemon finish. Wish this was cheaper and in 6íers.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy golden color. Very nice aroma, sweet fruity and resiny hops, very fresh. Quite weak body, some malty sweetness, and most of all an excellent extreme hopping. Really refreshing and enjoyable!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This poured a hazy deep straw yellow with hints of orange and a small white head. I get a big whiff of orange rind some lemon and not much else. The taste is good, fruity with a hint of bitterness. The fruit is like oranges with a hint of lemon. It has a medium body, low carbonation and has a mostly dry finish. This is very refreshing and very drinkable. I think the hops got attenuated a bit too much from sitting around, I would like to try this when it is fresh.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. light hazy golden colour with a white head. Floral hoppy, malty aroma and a sweet malty, floral hoppy, citrus taste. Medium body with a sweet light dry finish. If I should rate this after style it would get 1,5 but it taste ok.

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.
