Three Floyds Gumballhead

89 / 100

I've been wanting to try some Three Floyds for a long time and this was one of the most intriguing I've heard of. Thankfully, this fine summer beer was easy to find in Chicago - so I made the most of it there and even brought some home.

Gumballhead is descibed by the brewers as, "a highly dry hopped American wheat." It has an interesting color, a lot lighter than I was expecting - but more accurate to what a wheat looks like. The aroma was sweet, a bit lemony with a dose of hops. The tastes follows that but with a wheat balanced finish.

It's a very unique taste and quite delicious. The sweetness is different but very welcome. I sure wish I could get this in LA.
