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.

Pours hazy yellow/golden with not much of a head. Little lemon thingies floating in the beer look like sea monkeys. Initial taste is hops and citrus. This beer tastes like an IPA with lemons. Different than anything Iíve had before, and I must say I enjoyed it. I look forward to trying other FFF stuff.

Looked like atypical wheat beer...hazy straw color with small white head. Nice armoma, sorta lemony. Hop flavor seems to stand out at the beginning and then finishes like drinking lemon peels. While I am not a fan of wheat beers this is one of the better wheat beers I have ever had.

Instead of the label-predicted lemon, I found grapefruit. Very tart. herbal (almost grassy) aroma with a bit of spice.

Sampled at From The Vine beer tasting Jul 9th, 2004: This beer definitely stretches the definition of the style, but Iíll be damned if it isnít one of the best Wheat beers I have ever had. I consider myself a comic book fan yet I have never heard of Mr. Gumballhead, but I like his style! The beer is a golden yellow color with nice effervescence. The head is medium thin milky white and lasting. Nice aroma of floral hops, wheat and a touch of citrus. Light-bodied and very easy to drink, with less hops in the flavor than in the nose but still a great amount. There is also a nice wheat presence along with some lemon and grass. Overall, the wheat overlaid with the hops texture makes this pretty close to the perfect summer beer for me. A bomber of this will disappear before you know it.

Golden color, nice amount of carbonation, lots of orange citrus notes here. I love Amarillo hops, and now I love them in American Wheat beers! Light and quenching and delicious.
