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!

Pretty great stuff. Think I did things a bit out of order, though, and got into their really great stuff too early, as this beer is a little bit more "boring" than I was expecting. Still--I would order this any time at a bar if given the opportunity and nothing else new was available. Very drinkable, and likable by even Coors Light people. I would consider this a very good introductory craft beer. Must say, I was expecting a different color than such a clear gold, almost IPA look. It deserves the hype it gets, itís just not exactly unbelievable.

Bottle from Ian. This has a great aroma of spicy hops. Yellow color. Flavor is a little odd. Surprisingly salty, but watery and thin palate.

TheBear11D (363) - Michigan, USA - JUL 23, 2015
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Gumballhead pours a pretty hazy golden yellow with a two finger thick eggshell white foamy head that lasts a good couple minutes. The aroma is lemon and earthy. The flavor is bread, earthy with a lemon finish. The beer is medium bodied and very smooth. Overall this is an easy drinker with a smooth crisp finish and good flavor.

Poured from a bottle. Golden straw haze with healthy white head that laces very well. Very aromatic with citrus and lemon. Some slight caramel sweetness with wheat grain malt. Soft bitterness to compliment the sweetness.

mambossa (126) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2015
6 pack bought at brewpub. Bottled 6/24/2015. Pours a bright gold with nice head. Aroma is almost sugary-cereal, wheat, minimal grassiness, enormously sweet. Flavor is juicy, bright, lemony, banana; drinkability and mouthfeel of a wheat but much more colorful in flavor. A staple. Best consumed fresh.
