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.

Pours a golden orange with a white head. Has a very pleasant scent of hops, fruits, and yeast. This beer unlike most beers has a much different after taste than the upfront taste, with flavors of hops, malts and yeast with a mandarin finish.

Thanks goes out to Immy for hooking a brother up! Sparkling gold, topped by a fizzy white head, which lasts a while, and leaves some pretty nice lacing. Scads of grapefruit and hops in the aroma. Mild pine aromas as well. Bitter hops and cirtus flavours, orange rind acidity, semi sweet malt to balance out the bitterness. Pretty damn good. Crisp and refreshing. Thanks again TIm!

22 ox bottle. Poured a mostly clear gold under a fluffy white head. Nice citrus hop aroma, some grassy character. Very clean and Pale Ale like with the grapefruit notes. Earthy wheat base with a crisp hop finish. Very soft on the palate, no sharp edges with this beer. I really like this, certainly not your average American Wheat! More of a wheat based Pale Ale. Finally an American Wheat to get excited about.

22oz bottle. Poured a medium and hazy golden color with an averaged sized head. Initial pour gave me a nice hoppy aroma (go figure, a FFF beer has hops). Aromas of pine, light grapefruit, with some wheat and citrus in the background. Tastes of wheat, citrus, with a lighter pine finish. Hops were stronger in the aroma than the taste (not a bad thing as the hops blended well giving it a nice sweet to bitter balance). As with this style, I find the body a little on the thin side.

Pours a slightly hazy gold with a white head. Nose is grapefruit, wheat, lemon rind, hops. Flavor is somewhat hoppy, citrus and light wheat. Really an interesting beer, seems like a cross between an IPA and a wheat. Nice!

More hops than anticipated in this nice wheat beer. Medium bodied, hazy, moderate sweet malty character followed by a nice and significant hop finish. Sl Lemony finish.

Slightly hazy, dark gold. Small white head. Good lace. Big, fresh, hoppy aroma. Medium, slightly grainy feel. Big, hoppy flavour of pine & citrus w/ some very faint wheaty undertones. Wheat Beer? I would have guessed an IPA. Hop city...but i liked it : )

Pours clear golden with a nice white head. Aroma is piney, citrusy hops with notes of fruit underneath. Flavor is grapefruit with some caramel and bananas. Nice session brew.

Bomber. Plenty of citrus and pine on the nose. Grapefruit and other citrus notes come through in the taste as well as plenty of hops. Compared to other 3F brews it comes off a tad unbalanced, but that may be getting really picky. A very fine brew.

22oz Bottle. Hazy yellowish orange with big white head. Big citrusy hop nose with some sweet malt in the background. Big citrusy hop flavor with some sweet wheat malt in the background. Rich, but light, a really fantastic and quenching brew. Bright crisp finish. A nice celebration of the hop. I absolutely love this stuff! As for some of the pricing comments, I can’t exactly remember but it seems like I’ve never paid more than $4 in these parts.
