COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American Wheat Beer brewed with red wheat and boat loads of amarillo hops gives this summer brew a lemony finish. The slight haze in the bottle is from the bottle-conditioning, where yeast is added to the bottle for a secondary fermentation. Gumballhead is a Skingraft Comics hero. Check out Skingraft Comics and Records at www.skingraftrecords.com. Cheers!

Bottle with massive thanks to Guy. Pours bright orange with a fair bit of haze and a sticky white head. Nose is full of tropical fruits, citric zest, mild spice, cloves and fairly heavy banana. The sweet and juicy fruits cut through the nose perfectly. Perfect balance to this. Tropical fruits, stone fruit, melon, banana, cloves, mild pepper and orange blossom in complete unison. Incredible for a style which I wouldn’t normally touch

Drucken på Mikkeller bar, Stockholm. Lätt humlig doft, kroppen rätt fyllig, smaken fint humlig, inte alla likt en veteöl. Riktigt bra! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fat på Mikkeller Bar. Dimmig bärnsten. Doftar lätt av tuggummi och frukt. Lätt smak av frukt men även något kemiskt. Tunn i kroppen.

Gumballhead on tap at Local Option pours a clear copper gold with a fruity wheat gumball aroma sweet & sticky they has a bitter hop edge to it. The taste is fruity and sharply bitter with a gumball sweetness. Medium-full bodied the beer is sweet with an earthy edge - great stuff.

Aroma is hoppy with some bubblegum and soapiness. Very light and intriguing, taste is very light with prominent wheat features, quite earthy and lemony. Hops in taste is hardly there except a soapy feel, with a bitterness on end.

So, here I sit rating beer # 4000 and this is appropriate. I’ve been trying to taste this for years on end. Finally found on tap at the vintage, a great place fer sure. I was hoping for a well behaved wheat beer with bubble gum flavors but what I got was a well behaved slightly hoppy beer. Phil is a great business guy who knows what he’s doing. I was thinken this would be one great wheat beer but it turned out to be somewhat hoppy, surprisingly so. Pale yellah. Slight B/O aroma, what is it with these hoppy beers lately, not in to too much B/O unless its my favorite mate’s, heheh and even then I think of it as perfume. Good co2 keeps this stuff refreshing none the less, baby. Fun overall. But you can tell its made to please the hop heads round here, probably why it has such a good rating. Medium hop bitterness on the finish. For a hoppy beer, not bad by this lager lovers standards. Considering the hop effects from the start, not bad overall. Glad to have finally tasted this and on tap thanks to phil at vintage, YEAH!
