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.

(RATING 700!)this wheat beer had a clear body with a small white head that disapeared quickly.the aroma was a mix of straw,whaet,and pine like hops.the flavor was a nice mix of ice tea,hay,flowers,and pine.it had a nice mouthfeel and the palate was on the full side.

Yeast, hay. wheat, and slightly piney herbal hops in the nose. Bright brassy clear body with a thin white head. Flavor is herbaly bitter and bright with touches of zesty citrus and some flowers. Finishes with a little doughy yeast.

A hazy orange beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet hoppy with a light touch of wheat, while the wheat has a stronger presence in the flavor on a sweet malty back ground, and still with a distinct hoppyness. OK, but nothing spectacular - I’m not that fond of the strong hoppyness combined with the wheat.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2006 Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Poured a hazy amber with an off-white head. Aroma of wheat, citrus, and hops. Flavor is bitter, citrus, wheat.

Golden color, nearly no head, flat carbonation. Sweet floral nose. Stale hops taste accomplished by lavender - not my sausage! ;-)

From a 22oz. bomber bottle with the distinctive Three Floyds label with a map to the brewery on the lower right side of label, summer 2006 version. Made a good appearance, poured a cloudy golden hued orange with a foamy white that settled into a thin, bubbly lacing, moderate carbonation overall. Had a amarillo hops nose, citric grapefruity and orangey with just a light wheat maltiness at the edges. A crisp, smooth medium bodied mouth feel, very good drinkability. Big hop taste upfront, grapefruity, zesty and a delicious orangey, sharp, but rolling bitterness on the tongue, a crisp sweet wheat malty backbone with the distinctive Three Floyds yeastiness and a crisp and bitter citric fruity and malty finish. The perversion of the pale wheat ale that you expect from Three Floyds, original, tasty and quite quaffable.

Metalhead (644) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - APR 23, 2006
I had this once at a beer taste and was not impressed. It was near room temp. Bought yesterday after reading all the hype from some of you. Hesitant to pay $5.50 for a bomber of 5% wheat beer. Poured avg gold color no head, Where TF is the wheat? Not even present. What I got was more akin to a nice resiny IPA but could not detect the claimed lemon finish. Wish this was cheaper and in 6’ers.

Light nose, clear orange color, no head. Orange and apricot tastes, hoppy end. Medium body, creamy feel. Not too thrilled about this one.

fiulijn (20427) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 21, 2006
Hazy golden color. Very nice aroma, sweet fruity and resiny hops, very fresh. Quite weak body, some malty sweetness, and most of all an excellent extreme hopping. Really refreshing and enjoyable!

beerymcbeer (2) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2006 does not count
This poured a hazy deep straw yellow with hints of orange and a small white head. I get a big whiff of orange rind some lemon and not much else. The taste is good, fruity with a hint of bitterness. The fruit is like oranges with a hint of lemon. It has a medium body, low carbonation and has a mostly dry finish. This is very refreshing and very drinkable. I think the hops got attenuated a bit too much from sitting around, I would like to try this when it is fresh.
