UPDATED: AUG 16, 2004 2004 edition, Bottled. Bought a bomber bottle at the brewery, and it must have just come off the line. It pours with a big smell of fresh, green hops that just dazzles the nose. Foamy head more pilsner than wheat style. I think the smell helped overwhelm the grapefruit taste of the amarillo hops, because I couldn't find it easily. Maybe once it's sat for awhile, it will be closer to the way it tasted last year, but man, it's still great!
On tap, at the brewery, 2003. While my experience points are still low around here, I'll stick my neck out and say this is quite unlike any other beer out there. American Wheats are a little bland, unless they've been brewed with the spicy flavor of German wheats, but the Floyds never cared for following style. This has a big zesty wheat taste that I somehow guessed was North Dakota winter wheat, and Nick said I was right, but I don't know how I knew. Like with most 3F beers, there's a big smack in the face of hops, this one is all Amarillo, giving a different more orangey taste. Pleasing orange color, too. Gotta get out and find this stuff while it's around!

12 oz bottle poured in to chalice. Great citrusy and hoppy aroma with wheats earthy tones. Pours a beautiful hazy golden yellow with a white head that dissipates but has great lacing. Flavor of wheat and hops throughout with some wonderful lemony citrus notes in the middle with a great dry finish. Quite an impressive beer.

Good, but quality control is totally lacking. Boys and girls, this one’s a gusher.

Aroma is hoppy pine. Light gold in appearance. Taste is clean with a great hop bite. Very smooth and refreshing. This is my favorite wheat beer hands down.

on tap at mikkeller and friends. lightly hazy yellow with a modest fluffy head; sweet aroma of lemon sherbet and musty pine; flavour hints at tinned apricots; good whack of bitterness, synthetic. very drinkable, unlike pretty much every other american wheat i’ve tried
