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.

Clear and golden with a long lasting, off white head. Has that quality ale look, where bubbles move at a moderate pace to the surface, where they support a leisurely, long lasting head. Grassy, lemon, froot loop aroma. Sweet and resinous with a smooth palate and generous body. Big hop flavor and nice lacing. American Wheat IPA?

On tap, slighlty hazy. Flavor was a bit frutiy, my wife said it tasted like berry, but I’d echo the apple comments. Very refreshing on a hot summer day. Now if I could only find it in bottles....

Nice looking beer -- orangy-amber color with a big, white, frothy head that shrank quickly with thick lacing. Slighty hazy. Nose was big hoppy, herbal and alcoholic, with notes of citrus fruit, particularly grapefruit and lemon, some wheat breadiness, and a bit of honey. Flavors of grapefruit, big hops, apple, some malt, yeast, and a smidgen of dill. Big hop finish and long-lasting orange aftertaste. A tad thin. Very enjoyable, refreshing wheat.

The golden color and light hoppy finish make this a good appetizer beer, especially on a hot day.

Pours a inviting golden yellow amber color. The first smell is of hops, sweetness and citrus. The taste is hard to compare to any other beer. There’s hops, followed by a sweet citrus flavor to finish off smooth and refreshing. I very drinkable yummy brew. It’s hard to stop taking sips.

Aubrey (3455) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2005
Bright golden; bleached-white head; nice lace. Mouthfeel was decent; maybe a little on the light side, which I expected. Wafty hop aromas throughout. Really nice notes of grass, pine and green hops. Malts were lightish, wheaty and bready. Very enjoyable beer, style guidelines aside.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2005
Clear golden, no head. Great earthy, spicy hop aroma, dandelions. Taste is green, raw, and bitter. Hoppy and spicy. Bitter finish. Light body, but very smooth and drinkable. A well hopped wheat beer.

Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is hazy dark yellow. Aroma is moderately hoppy (resin, grapefruit), lightly yeasty (dough), lightly malty (toasted grain). Flavor is moderately sweet, lighlty acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. I guess throwing a lot of hops into a wheat beer would put it near the top of the American Wheat field, but I’m not sold on that idea. I think the style would be better served with some more interesting yeast character and esters, but this is ok.
