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.

lots of hops in this one, which i am not used to in my wheat beers, almost overpowering but not abusive or anything. it sure does have the gummy flavors like pink bubble yum. weird. lots of character to this.

nice golden champagne color to it with a nice lacey white head, very transparent. Big hops and wet grass aroma, almost like a vegetable beer. really flat and light, has some hops that come up in the end, for a wheat, this is fuckin awesome. it can beat the ass of alot of ipaís.

Bottle, poured a slightly hazy pale fizzy foamy head. I smelled grapefruit, and lemon. I donít love wheat bears, and this was excellent. Crisp fruit citrus taste. Clean refreshing palate. Thanks for the recommendation Jim.

Bottle...Poured a clear dark yellow with airy white head. Aromas are very strong of K.B.ís, pine, blueberry and grapefruit. Nose was far stronger than flavor and mouthfeel with this, but flavors were good nonetheless with more of the same with definite wheat undertones. Finish was slightly bitter and balanced the beer well. Very good overall.

Does Three Floydís make a bad beer? My boy mike likened the smell to dank nugs, and I concur. At first whiff, I get brought back to the days of getting fat calio sacks. Anyways, how is the beer you ask? I am not the biggest fan of wheatbeers, but I loved this one. Very easy to drink. Nice wheat and hops present. Pours a golden amber color full of yeast with some clean white head. Just beautiful. Fruity grapefruit like flavor that finishes off with just a slight bitterness. Great summer brew to just enjoy.

Bottle at Andyís Carryout in Columbus. Wasnít sure what I was getting into here - just one sip, and then I knew it was an American Wheat. Sorry, but these just donít measure up against the German-style hefeweizens.

Really cool summer brew. Great presentation with a dark golden color with a thick white head. The lacing was superb here, hence the perfect appearance score. Aroma was very hoppy with citrus, graitfruit and lemon. Kind of like a light IPA and with similarities to the Alpha King. Taste was very refreshing especially the mouthfeel. It had a real refreshing bitterness to it which was not overdone.

Bomber Split this bomber with my father after he helped me clear my backyard. Iím really proud of him, heís come a long way from his Genny Cream Ale days. Poured hazy and golden, like a good wheat should ... or a dehydrated piss ... whatever. Aroma of citrus and piney hops. Not bad. When it was cold, it tasted more like a wheat beer ... wheat (duh) and citrus were there. As it warmed, it really took on an IPA feel with a load of hops in there. But the hops never overpowered the wheat aspects. Rather it combined naturally. Itís a pretty unique beer. Very good. Again, thanks to slob for the awesome trade!

This was unusual. I did taste and smell things described on here like the leathery grassy taste that I used to think was peoples imaginations. It did have a very refreshing grapefruit taste and some unique smells and flavors. I liked it but did not love it. I would drink it again though as a nice alternative to the norm. I donít think I could have it all the time though.

Hoppy aroma, didnít taste very hoppy though. Sweet fruity flavor, with a weak finish. Overall, not a bad wheat beer, but also not top of the line.
