22 oz. bombers purchased at Shangys last night. I heard great things about this beer so I am so anxious to try this.
Cool label. I never knew that Gumballhead was a cartoon character.
Pours a golden copper. Plenty of carbonation. Not hazy at all like the bottle says or light a wheat beer should be.
Nice big pure white, fluffy head. Great sticking on the glass.
Huge hops in the nose. Love that.
Great hop taste in the mouth. The sweetness of cotton candy follows as I swallow.
Like the bottle says, "It's not normal." Certainly not a normal wheat beer. You know what, though, who cares. This is just great beer. I am becoming a huge fan of 3F. I can't wait to try all their others.

A: Only slightly hazy orange-gold body, tufts of bubbles, a good head that leaves a thin coating on the surface, a few legs of sticky lace.
S: Mostly strikingly clean hops, most citrus fruits. Faint background of wheat. Really good, but too hop-centric for the named style.
T: Again, too hoppy for the style, but it's too good for me to knock it much. Clean, clean hops showcasing a variety of citruses with minimal bitterness playing off a slightly sweet wheat base. Finish could be longer.
M: Supremely crisp. Fluid. Lively. Refreshing. This is fantastic.
O: A simple concept wonderfully executed. Exactly matches my preferences for low bitterness, restrained hopping, and mild wheat sweetness. It's between a wheat and an IPA, I guess they can't appease both camps ('this IPA is weak!' 'this wheat has too much hops!'). All said and done, a great, easily repeatable beer.
