I don’t know what I was thinking when I first tried this beer. (See below to see what I mean.) This summer I worked my way through a case of Three Floyd’s goodies while traveling around the lake and I just fell in love with this beer.
This pours a golden-amber color with a vibrant aroma full of grapefruit, candy/bubblegum and a hoppy bite to it. Such an easy drinker. I loved the bitter kick and the rounded finish, with the grapefruit-forward hop profile and that subtle hint of bubblegum.
Reassessment: This one’s a winner. I’m hooked!
Old review: This poured a golden tan color. And by god—I smell bubblegum! It’s a light aroma but it’s definitely “gummy”. The flavor is hop forward with a pronounced full frontal assault… and then it turns into this smooth wheat beer finish. Coriander? Check. Orange peel? Check. And that oddly strange bubble-gum character? Check. It’s an easy drinking, hoppy wheat beer but it just didn’t do it for me.
