I am not a wheat beer fan, and was hesitant to get many of these, but I was quite surprised. 3F never disappoints. Really great beer, drinkable, and would like to try it once the weather gets a little warmer. The hop presence is there but not overwhelming. Will definitely look to get some more of these in the near future.

Pours bright golden with a white head that thins and stays. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of a hop-bomb. Citrus - grapefruit, orange/nectarine, some pineapple - with pine.

The taste is of hops - citric, with some pine. Just a touch of sweet wheat cracker backs it up - just enough to hold hops together.

Full-bodied for the style. Chewy.

Purposely imbalanced, this is a super hoppy wheat ale. Drinkable despite rawness.
