Beer Review: 3 Floyds' Gumballhead Wheat

 Here we go with another offering from 3 Floyds Brewing! This is the much sought-after Gumballhead Wheat. This is not your typical wheat. With its amarillo-esque  profile, this beer stands out in a room full of fruity or super mild wheats!

Beer: Gumballhead Wheat Ale
Brewery: 3 Floyds Brewing, Munster
Price: $10/Six pack or $35/Case
ABV: 5.6%
IBU: 35 (deceivingly low)

Appearance: Pale golden color, pale head that persists, great lacing as it dissipates.
Nose: Fresh cut grass, grapefruit, pine
Taste: Hops on the front end, big time, considering it is a wheat. That is evident in the mouthfeel which sticks to your pallet like glue. Good malt finish to prove once and for all that this is truly a wheat ale.
BA gave it a 94, I concur.
