I always heard great things about 3 floyds, so I was excited when my work finally started carrying their beers. Gumballhead is their first one I've tried, and I'm really disappointed. The initial taste is a bit too tangy, but it does have a decent after-taste. The thing i dislike most is it's just not smooth at all. Every drink felt harsh as it hits your throat, and it wasn't pleasant at all. I hope some of their other products are better!

Picked up on a recent trip to Kentucky/Ohio and brought back with me to Kansas City. Part of an entire trunk load of beers I brought back. I kind of thought of myself as a modern day Smokey and the Bandit, just not as cool. And 1000 miles north, going the opposite direction. And what I did was totally legal. And I was in a Ford C-Max. But other than all that, pretty much the same thing.

Appearance- Pours a beautiful clear yellow with a soapy one finger head that dissipates quickly but leaves solid lacing.

Smell - The nose is probably this beers strongest feature, in that you can smell the hops and wheat coming through, as well as some other fruitiness. Maybe a little lemony bitterness in there as well.

Taste - Didn't quite follow the nose exactly, but close. You still get the good hop flavoring at the back end. Great wheat and hops balance, really like the intermixing of the flavors here.

Mouthfeel - Finishes like a pale wheat ale should. Real smooth, good flavor blend, great session beer. You could drink a lot of these and not realize it.

Overall - This is a good beer. I had to drink it more than once to truly appreciate its quality, but I came in and changed my rating after the second go around. That happens sometimes.I would absolutely recommend this beer. Another strong FFF showing
