A - crisp-looking, light yellow-orange pour; nice quarter+-inch frothy white head; plenty of effervescent carbonation; hazy straw gold
S - fruity; kind of smells like bubble gum, although maybe that's just the title pervading my thoughts; nice, sweet floral aromas; subtle wheat notes
T - has some up-front bite; lemon zesty; slightly sugary; the bubble gum flavor is actually there and sticks to my mustache after the beer has gone down the trap; some slight grapefruit hints from the hops; citrus fruit
M - the bite note should probably go here, but yeah...it's got an up-front 'cut' of a feel to it; light bodied yet full of flavor; well-balanced; pleasantly carbonated; nuanced for something so fresh and easy on the palate
O - this is truly an exceptional wheat...it's as if FFF took a wheat and pounded it with the right amount of hops to draw out the basic lemon-wheat flavors in traditional wheat beers; this nice flavors, great balance, and an easy profile...a prime example of a summer sipping beer at the beach.

Poured from bottle into pint glass. The hype, as with all 3F beers, is not warranted. People act like this is the best beer in the world, and its not. Its just another beer people, get over it and drink something else. If its not on the shelf, we don't have any, so don't ask. And, yes, everyone will always be out because all you crazies are ridiculous. Don't call either, the answer is always no. Stores reward people that actually take the time to come in and potentially buy something.
80 Acre is not a bad beer, its almost the exact same beer. Buy that instead. Some people think its better even. It's always in stock, and cheaper.
3F only makes enough GH for bars to have on tap, and if that if you're lucky enough to find it not sold out on tap. Don't waste your time driving from store to store looking for it. Or do if you want to spend the whole day doing so. That being said,
Poured a light yellow color.
No head, zero.
Had a pleasant piney wheat smell, but not unlike other beers
Could taste the citrus and wheat notes
Overall, an above average hoppy wheat beer, yes. Deserving of the ridiculous hype, absolutely not.
