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.

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 (21399) - 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.

Emil (6064) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 19, 2006
Bottle. light hazy golden colour with a white head. Floral hoppy, malty aroma and a sweet malty, floral hoppy, citrus taste. Medium body with a sweet light dry finish. If I should rate this after style it would get 1,5 but it taste ok.

bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - APR 18, 2006
Bottle. Pours golden with a medium white head. Tastes very perfumed and artificial. Citrus and notes of pine and hops.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 16, 2006
Bottle: Golden pour with a nice white head, good lacing on the glass. Aroma is a little grassy, with some citrus and pine hop notes. I hate to say it but this bottle may have been a bit skunky, but not too bad. However I’ve had this one before. Flavor has a mild wheat malt start a little sweet and citrusy finish. Solid mouth feel, mellow carbonation for a nice smooth and drinkable beer. Refreshing as well.

iowaherkeye (2804) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - APR 12, 2006
22oz bomber, no date, though I believe it’s from 2005. Pours a hazy golden with a moderate white head. Aroma of grapefruit and pine--like all 3F brews-- with some caramel malts and grassy sweetness. This tastes like it’s going to be an APA up front, but the bitterness never really kicks in. Lots of sweetness and grassy wheat in there to balance it out. Very good

XO (52) - New Jersey, USA - APR 9, 2006
Had this one from a 22 oz. bottle. (Three Floyds has some unique art on this label!) Poured a nice looking yellow and had a big head that left lots of lacing. The aroma was slightly sweet and so was the first sip. Not too hoppy ... this was unlike any wheat beer I’ve ever had. I’ll wait ’til it gets a bit warmer and try this one again.

PhysZac (69) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 18, 2006
Bottle. Light golden yellow pour has slight haze and big carbonation bubbles. A 3Finger thick and creamy head left clumpy and random lacing. Subdued 3F hop aroma with sweet grapefruit, hidden malt and a slight grassy/piney presence. Smells like perfume. Lemon at front of taste and not a lot else. Blends to sweet honey and finishes good and long. Definite pine bite which soaks in a few seconds after swallow. Bottle was slightly oxidized, maybe not the freshest. Palate was smooth and slightly carbonated and slides down throat. Paired great with the BBQ pizza I was having while watching Donnie Darko.
