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.

In a world full of cheesy-ass wheat, this one stands tall. Not too sweet, has some bite on the back side if the tongue and like all 3 Floyd's brews, great balance in the aftertaste.

Pours a pale golden orange with a thin fizzy white head. Aroma is sweet orange, wheat grass, some light floral notes, and maybe a touch of honey. Nothing overpowering but itís very well balanced and smells great. Flavor is oranges, honey, sweet wheat grass. Very nice flavor. Very enjoyable beer.

Whenever you can make a wheat beer not taste like a wheat beer youíve got a winner. This is a hopped out beer. Excellent.

Saeglopur (266) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - APR 15, 2014
Bottle from Mikkeller Online Shop. Dark golden to orange, slightly hazy body, with a small, frothy, white head. Aroma of citrus, red fruits, orange, peach, bubblegum, grass. Tastes of red fruits, citrus, orange, peach, grass, biscuit. Mouthfeel medium, with a lively carbonation and it finishes moderate bitter, with citrus, red fruits and malt notes. A refreshing, greatly balanced and easy to drink combination of a pale ale and a wheat beer. The Amarillo hops are beautifully showcased. Tasty!

Bottle pours a clear golden yellow with some white fizz. Light wheat in the sweet malty aroma with some lightly citrusy american hops. The flavor is crisp and smooth goes down real easy but has some backbone. Really good american wheat beer. Light grain spice, minimal wheat mustiness with some light lemon citrus, earthy fruity hops. Bright carbonation makes flavors linger with some sweetness.

Bottle, thanks to rxeight. Pours surprisingly clear and gold with white head. Aroma is full of citrus and pine -- is this a wheat beer or an IPA? Taste is hop-forward -- citrus, pine, with a light body, wheat that comes through more as it warms. Easy drinking, light body, heavily hop-forward. Doesnít really have a prominent wheat character. I imagine this is one of those beers that redefined styles a few years back -- very forward thinking and progressive, making an ipa wheat beer. As an IPA, itís okay. As a wheat beer, itís hard to even recognize it. As a pioneer, this could be an earth-shattering revelation. Without that context, itís a hoppy beer that has some wheat in it thatís pretty tasty.

tap. Hazy golden with small head. Wheat beer with huge amarillo hops. Big citrus, slight lemon. I wish all wheat beers were this tasty.

Orangeish pour thin white head. Fruity wheat aroma, like a bowl of fruity pebbles. Light body light to medium carbonation. Refreshing. Some orange and banana with some fruity marsh mellow like. Nice hop profile. Good stuff.
