Nose of citrus and lemon zest. Great hop bitterness throughout with a great flavor from the Amarillo hops. A very enjoyable summer brew.

Bottle. Looks like a normal wheat beer, but it comes out as being overly hoppy in the aroma. An interesting take on the style; sometimes poorly made hefes taste like bubblegum. They apparently did it on purpose and hopped the shit out of it! The aroma IS nice, but the hops and wheat just donít match up in the flavor very well for me and this is stuck in the realm of the mediocre, especially compared with the other great 3F offerings.

Sampled on tap at Brewtopia í04. Golden color with very little head. Aroma
of citrus and hops. Hops and lemon are
the predominate flavors. Not like any wheat beer Iíve ever had. Extremely
refreshing. I wish FFF were available
on the East coast.

Gold wiith a light head and spotty lacing. Very sprucy aromas. Some citrus and a nice malt backing. Malt flavors, more spruce, wheat or malts and some bitter hops. Nice malt palate and damn smooth

Its been some time since Iíve had this so Iím going on memory. I recall it being surprisingly good. A hoppy wheat beer which is in itself a rarity although this was also well done. The perfect copmpliment to a hot summer day although drinkable year round. Quite lemony in a good way complimented with a balanced bitterness. Highly recommend it.

RBSG 04. Pours a light orange/golden color witha small white head. Great citrus hop aroma. Taste is very hoppy but balances the wheaty malt with a nice controlled bitterness.

22 ounce bomber. an agressive wheat but what else would you expect from three floyds. the citrus hop taste is amazing. highly recommended. dont be intimidated by the bomber it will leave you wanting more.
