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.

"Pour out the typical american wheat, clear orange amber. Had an taste of hops, but still sweet which i didnít expect. Lacing was okay medium mouthfeel. Over all nice beer. "

Bottle Poured a hazy unfiltered golden peach color with a nice off white head and decent white lacing. Nose was much more hoppy than I anticipated for the style. Soft light grains as well. Flavor was a bit tart and dry due to the "boat loads" of hops in the brew. Not at all what I expected. Is there such a thing as an Imperial Wheat Ale? Still, tasty and up to snuff for a reputable brewer lke 3F Thanks to OhioDad for this one

Pours with a large creamy white head on a cloudy yellow-gold body. Strong aroma of citrus hops with lemon and orange being prominant. Strong hoppy flavour with lemon and orange hops on a medium (for a wheat) body.

Creamy off-white head on a hazy orange body. Fairly high caronation. Aroma of hops. A noticable hop flavor without much of a strong wheat flavor.

Much more fruit flavor than I expected... a very wonderful surprise. Warming and quite nice. Not a wheat beer for any addative like a lemon or an orange. It stands quite well on itís own. I will add this to my regulars.

Bottle. Hoppy citrusy orange aroma. I believe I smell Centennials. Similar aroma to Southern Tier Hop Sun. Wheat characteristics are not apparent in the nose. Perhaps this is due to age? Smells tasty, nonetheless. Mildly hazy honey color with a small whitish head. Juicy orange hoppy start, turning quickly dry and grainy. The wheat really comes through. Finishes with more grapefruity bitter hopping. This is about what I expected and believe it or not, it is quite comparable to Southern Tierís Hop Sun. I like this offering a bit more.

hazy pale yellow pour with a big fluffy head, nice lacing. Floral hop aroma, with some grass. Thinnish mouthfeel, sharp hop flavor, somewhat resinous. This definately has the watery mouthfeel of a wheat beer, however very little of the traditional wheat beer characteristic flavors. Very drinkable, hoppy, with some citrus to finish.

I really enjoy wheat brews and was enjoying this one until i noticed, as countless others before me have, that this isnít a wheat beer. I have no doubt wheat is in there, and you do taste it a little at first, but this is essentially a forum for hops. The sleight of hand is effective, but as an American wheat enthusiast it seems wrong to rate this highly as it does not represent the best brews in keeping with the style. This is all awkward, I need an Oberon.

No wheat to speak of in this "wheat beer" almost like an IPA light. Hoppy floral nose and light hoppy body. Crisp clean finish. Tastes great but how is it that much different from their IPA to justify the need to brew it.
