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.

Discount Liquours, Milwaukee, WI. - 22 oz bomber. Pours a light golden with a spongy, frothy white head that leaves excellent lacing. Fresh, floral aroma with hints of mown grass. Slight citrusy flavor with some minty back end notes. Creamy thick mouthfeel, goes down very smooth. More in common with an APA than an American Wheat. Very good.

Wow an American Wheat that DOESNT suck! Well this one doesnt seem to be true to style which is good. The aroma is lemons, bananas, freshly baked bread, and perfume. A yellowish orange appearance. A definite lemon and bubblegum presence but I also taste some peaches and apricots. It almost seems like an IPA and wheat blend. This lawnmower beer kicks ass. I feel like I need a lawnmower with a V8 engine and a bumpin system for this beer. Woohaa! Thanks Heemer!

Bomber: Poured a deep golden with a white sustaining head. Aromas were of sweet hops (citrus, grapfruit), and lots of them, also some spicy pine notes as well. Flavor was of hops which produced a nice balanced bitterness with a wheat background. Smooth mouthfeel, light but smooth. Very nice lacing.

What do you get when you cross an American pale ale with a summer wheat beer? -- Gumballhead. Needless to say, this was the hoppiest wheat beer I’ve ever had. Intriguing aroma and flavor. Smooth. Overall, excellent brew!

lots of hops in this one, which i am not used to in my wheat beers, almost overpowering but not abusive or anything. it sure does have the gummy flavors like pink bubble yum. weird. lots of character to this.

nice golden champagne color to it with a nice lacey white head, very transparent. Big hops and wet grass aroma, almost like a vegetable beer. really flat and light, has some hops that come up in the end, for a wheat, this is fuckin awesome. it can beat the ass of alot of ipa’s.

Bottle, poured a slightly hazy pale fizzy foamy head. I smelled grapefruit, and lemon. I don’t love wheat bears, and this was excellent. Crisp fruit citrus taste. Clean refreshing palate. Thanks for the recommendation Jim.

Bottle...Poured a clear dark yellow with airy white head. Aromas are very strong of K.B.’s, pine, blueberry and grapefruit. Nose was far stronger than flavor and mouthfeel with this, but flavors were good nonetheless with more of the same with definite wheat undertones. Finish was slightly bitter and balanced the beer well. Very good overall.

Does Three Floyd’s make a bad beer? My boy mike likened the smell to dank nugs, and I concur. At first whiff, I get brought back to the days of getting fat calio sacks. Anyways, how is the beer you ask? I am not the biggest fan of wheatbeers, but I loved this one. Very easy to drink. Nice wheat and hops present. Pours a golden amber color full of yeast with some clean white head. Just beautiful. Fruity grapefruit like flavor that finishes off with just a slight bitterness. Great summer brew to just enjoy.
