Pours a hazy yellowish light amber. No head at all with a thin amount of lacing. Smell is mostly bready malt with a hint of hops. Taste is similar with an emphasis on the malt side of things. The hops are there and provide a citrus zest on the palate. Was hoping for more hop flavor but what's there is nice. The wheat gives this beer a real nice body and feel in your mouth. Carbonation is on the low side but adequate. Hardly any bitterness, good mouthfeel, and a flavor that is easily palatable all contribute to a very drinkable if not terribly exciting brew.

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.
