well, this one has been buried in the cellar for a while, oops. i'm sure it's still fine.
appearance: yellow. not much of a head.
aroma; pinetrees and lemon drops, hops hops hops, and something "extra"
taste. hops again, surprise surprise. these are the ones that are really bright, acidic, and taste like tart lemons and pine trees. there is some fruity sweetness hiding behind all those hops. there is also this really weird taste. it was much more dominant in the fresher version, and seems to have subsided a bit in this one (6 months old or so). cherimoya, that is it. it tastes like cherimoya fruit. this beer has an excellent flavour balance. just flows from one end to the other, with lots goign on in between, but not overly complicated. very juicy tasting. oh yes, i like this a lot.
mouthfeel is great, yum yum, good body.
this puppy is well crafted. oh yeah, drinkability is really good. certainly a unique 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.
