  • Beer/Brewery - Gumballhead\Three Floyds Brewing   C / 2.8  rDev -51.8%   

    look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5    City/State- Munster, Indiana  

    STYLE – American Pale Wheat Ale  

    ABV – 5.5%  

    IBU – 28  

    DATE – 2 June 2011  

    SERVING TYPE – 12 oz Bottle  

    GLASSWARE – Goblet  

    APPEARANCE – Golden and clear with a nice stream of bubbles coming up right in the center of the glass, very thin head.  

    AROMA- Very hoppy and hints of sweet fruit  

    TASTE – a light citrus hop flavor, a little bitter as well, but in a refreshing way   

    MOUTHFEEL – Good carbonation, in fact maybe a bit too much. This is a very gassy beer.   

    CONCLUSION – For a wheat beer this taste more like an IPA. It is not bad, but when you are expecting a good wheat flavor and instead you get a hoppy flavor, well it just throws off the whole thing. I would drink this again now that I know what to expect.
