Appearance- color is a slightly hazy gold, pours a half finger of thick, frothy head that retains very well.

Smell- Aroma is very citrusy and sweet, and is comprised mostly of orange and lemon zest, with only a hint of wheat.

Taste- Orange and lemon upfront, floral notes, slight bitterness from the hops, very faintly metallic, the wheat comes in at the very end.

Mouthfeel- Quite crisp, carbonation is high, just the tiniest bit of chalkiness at the end which is a bit off putting, but does not make the texture unpleasant.

Overall- This is an excellent and refreshing wheat beer, if it was available in my area it would be a consistent repurchase during the warm months for sure.

Nice golden color nearly reminiscent of an american macro but the similarities end there. Small pearl white head highly carbonated with significant lacing.

Nice citrus accents. Hard too really tell this is a wheat beer reminds me more of an IPA. Good hop aromas with a wheat malt background.

Tastes of grapefruit, nectarine, good hop content with a malt presence thats undeniable. Good complexity. Terrific smooth mouthfeel and the ability to drink these beauties all night long.

Tasted 3 Floyds brewerey pre dark lord day.

22oz. bottle. Poured a clear light gold color, with a moderate white head. Aroma was citrus and flowers, faint honey, and a grape/wine note near the end? Flavor was quite mild, mainly hops, but balanced with citrus and wheat very well. Body was light and effervescent, highly carbonated and very easy to drink. A very enjoyable beer, probably my favorite wheat beer out there. I hope 3F continues to distribute in MD.
