Three Floyds Brewing Company Yum Yum

Aroma: “An intense candy sweetness that is utterly unique and new to my beer experiences—like Starburst candy on the nose or like the sweetened milk left after eating a bowl of Lucky Charms. It’s a crazy, unique hops aroma that smells like candy or bubblegum and hops, or even more accurately candied hops.”

Flavor: “The juicy hops character carries through the beer from the start to finish with lemon, orange, grapefruit, and an almost bubblegum sweetness. The malt body is bright with a clean, crisp finish. Intense juiciness, with wild candy sweetness and lavors, ranging from citrus, to banana, to a butter rum hard candy and a touch of bitterness to balance the sweetness.”

Overall: “One of the most uniquely flavored beer that I've tried, without the addition of any adjunct or specialty ingredients— this beer broadens the hops flavor lexicon. I love being surprised by beers, and this one surprised me in the best way. Seek this one out.”
