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!

22 oz. bottle. Hazy yellow with foamy white head. Aroma of lemons and hops. Flavor of lemons and hops. Tasted more like an IPA than a wheat beer. Still quite drinkable.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2006 Hazy gold, collapsing white head that was a little disappointing for a wheat beer. Nonetheless, an inviting aroma of lemon and hay removes any concern. Medium body that is velvety smooth. Big hop flavors of lemon and orange over a sweet caramel malt backbone. For a beer with so much hop aroma and flavor, the lack fo bitterness came as a surprise. A lingering lightly sweet finish that is quite pleasing. Very drinkable, nicely balanced.

bottle. thanks for sharing, Len! orange-golden body with a medium white head. the aroma is awesome and not like any other American Wheat Ive had. orange hops galore come to no surprise. very APA-like flavour - grassy and citric hops and creamy yeast. a touch of bread sweetness but this concoction is mostly hops. I could see myself drinking more of this in the summer months especially with the low alcohol level. very drinkable.

Pours a golden orangish wheat. Hops, orange, and wheat nose. Hops and citrus fusion in taste, with a slightly oily wheat finish. Refreshing overall.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2008 Ill sum this up at the start; I could drink this brew every day, all summer long. Low abv+great taste=all day drinking ! The gumballhead has an orange yellow color with a quickly fading white head. Great, intense fresh floral hop smell. Light medium body with a smooth mouthfeel. Great taste mimics the smell with big hop flavors followed by a malty, grainy sweetness to finish. Excellent beer here.

This beer pours a cloudy golden color, with a thin almost tan lace. The smell is of wheat, lemon, honey, some grass essence. The taste is very smooth, kind of sweet from the honey and a little tart from the lemons. It really goes well together. This is a great wheat ale one that I could drink all year around.

Smooth and mildly bitter. Lots of hop flavor without the bitterness. Citrus flavors, but not really grapefruit (makes sense with the lack of bitterness) Smells just like DFH 60 min. Also has a bit of that woody/cedar flavor. No pine. Mild sweetness keeps it balanced but not at all malty. Not much wheat flavor. Some soapy flavor in the beginning of the sip. If not for ths soap flavor, this would score much higher. Still, its a very good, innovative beer. Thanks Sliffy!

22 oz bomber. Pours a yellowish golden cloudy color with a thick white head. Aroma is piney with lots of fresh hops present along with lemon citrus and wheat. Flavor is lemony with loads of hops and light wheat. Excellent !!! Another gem from the 3 Floyds brothers.

Bottle from SlobThanks!
Pours thick and amber, like a nice IPA. Not as much head as a typical weizen. Aroma is very hoppy, like an IPA. In fact, as a wheat beer this makes a darn good IPA. Flavor is full and citrusy, with hints of grapefruit and orange. A slight strawberry seems to be lingering in the finish. Good beer; Id drink another.
