COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American Wheat Beer brewed with red wheat and boat loads of amarillo hops gives this summer brew a lemony finish. The slight haze in the bottle is from the bottle-conditioning, where yeast is added to the bottle for a secondary fermentation. Gumballhead is a Skingraft Comics hero.

True to form, Three Floyds has hopped the livin’ daylights out of this American Wheat so that it approaches APA or even IPA territory. Only slightly wheaty. If you love hops, this could be for you. Nice fluffy light head. Bit of citrus (slight). I wish they’d brewed this closer to style, or labeled it an Imperial Wheat.

Dorwart (2370) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 29, 2005
Good sized head. Light straw colored with low carbonation. I expected more carbonation from this. Head reduces to a thin foam. Spicey hops aroma up front followed by some nice citrus and sweet malts. Bit of pepper. Dark golden straw color. Thin body and flavor. Spicy hops again with more citrus. Dry and bitter. Very dry finish with good bitterness. Not much wheat or yeast flavor present. A decent and very hoppy wheat beer.

Dansting (222) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - MAR 12, 2005
Bottle. Pours cloudy gold with medium head. Citrus-floral aroma. Unlike (and bettter) than most wheat beers. Much hoppier. Lemony flavor with a gumball-like aftertaste. Probably the perfect summer brew.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2008 Doesn’t really taste at all like a wheat beer. Tastes like most of the other 3 floyds, ie. very hoppy. does have a characteristic lemmony flavor though. I really like this beer, probably the best wheat beer i’ve ever had.. rerate, this bitch has definitely changed over the years. honestly, it’s hops and water. almost no complexity. one of them is great but after that you might as well drink miller lite.

Jonathan3584 (323) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 21, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2005 Smells of sweet wheat, caramel, some hoppy bitterness, and a background note of bubblegum. Golden color, quickly dissipating head with slight lacing. Hoppiest wheat beer I’ve tried. Nice melding of hops and wheat. Namesake is slightly apparent in the aftertaste. Thin and crisp with light carbonation. Great for the summer, but not something I could drink every day.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a big, foamy, white head. Aroma is citrus and flowers. Smooth malty taste with a grapefruit and piney hop finish. Definately the hoppiest wheat I’ve had. Quite enjoyable.

green (186) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 13, 2005
Light with normal wheat beer particulate mater. Big hops. Dry grass flavors and slightly sour flavors. Finishes nicely. Totally unique (to me) and enjoyable combonation of APA-like big hops and the smoothness of a wheat beer. A remarkable beer.

22oz bottle. 46°. NB worthy glass. Hazy gold color with a small head. The aroma is killer. Hops are perfumy with a predominate citrus smell. Taste is a typical wheat beer with a great hops flavor and a very small hops bite, that gives it a nice citrus finish. Finish is citrus with a tiny amount of hops bitterness that almost elicits a pucker. This would be about the perfect summer beer, light, but with a nice flavor. The mouthfeel is light and crisp.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 24, 2005
Golden copper color, clear, with medium head and lacing. Very hoppy aroma, pine, mild skunk, citrus. Wheat is fairly low in the mix, hop bite and spicyness take over, what I imagine an imperial pilsener might be. Sweet yet finishes dry. A refreshing, if very unique, beer that I presume lives for summertime.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2011 #300 Pours crystal clear golden yellow, nice rocky head, decent lacing. Grapefruit/citrus zest up front. Hints of bubblegum. Flavor again hop forward, nice citrus, juicy orange and grapefruit zest. Lightest malt sweetness in the backend. Lingering hop profile. Cleanest bottle I’ve had, no yeast esters to speak of. Well attenuated. Medium carbonation. Well done.
