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.

Rich gold color w/little or no head. Hop, pine, peach w/syrup aromas. Light weight, fragrant finish that is quite short. Banana, pine, peach and melon all dance in the mouth. Wow!!

badgerben (4391) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 31, 2004
Light amber color with little head. Spicy wheat aroma. Fairly sour taste along with the expected wheat. Much drier than I would think for this beer. It didnít really impress me; different is not always better.

When I first had this beer I believe it was server too cold or I simply had a bad bottle. The point is, I liked it much better the second time around. Poured hazy yellow with a tint of green. Great musty lemon and lite pine hop aroma. The taste was difficult for me to describe but Iíd say there was some lemon flavor along with mild sweetness (cookie dough or candy of some type) but very unlike any wheat beer Iíve had. I enjoyed it very much.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - OCT 29, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2004 Pours a darker goldenrod color. Aroma of tropical/passion fruit (Papaya)! Flavor is spicy and hoppy, somewhat thin. Still getting fruit juice aromas and tastes. For the style, the most flavorful beer Iíve had. Refreshing and a great beer! Thanks to Psych Prof for this one!

jgb9348 (4689) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 28, 2004
Bright orange/clear coloured body with a thin, fast-dying white head. Aroma of pure american/citrus hops with little else-very pungent though! Light-bodied; Mild wheat/coriander seed flavours with citrus & hop freshness. Very light flavoured though-a bit dissapointing! Aftertaste bland and somewhat hoppy, not too powerful. Overall, a decent summer wheat, but I was expecting more from this, though! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased at Whole Foods in Vienna, Virginia on 31-July-2004 on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

obxdude10 (2031) - Limerick, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2004
Didnít really have a whole lot of wheat beer qualities, it tasted great & was very enjoyable, but wasnít really brewed to the style, copper color, small white head, a bit of lacing, slight bubble gum in the nose, very rich & smooth, some hints of bread & yeast in the flavors along with some clove or other spice, malty finish

rudolf (2340) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 24, 2004
Piney. Very piney. Slightly spicy, nice and bitter. Great sweet malt. So fresh! But not in a sticky way like Grants Fresh Hop. Why canít I find something like this in Buffalo? @ Buckeye Hoptoberfest, hopped by them

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 20, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2011 Dark straw color with a white head. Aroma is citrusy, apricots, grapefruit, and very tropical. Flavor is sharply bitter and acidic (good) until mid palate when bready, sweet malt and deeply American hops with an orange peel oiliness take over for the finish. This is the Sauvignon Blanc of the beer world. Almost too good.

Crockett (1007) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2004
Pours gold with a white soapy head. Hopped aroma with notes of leaves, pine, and lemony sweet candy. Softly bitter with loads of lemon drop candy. Wheat and grassy malts. Clean, soft, and mild. A bit of brewers caramel and yeast in the acidic finish.
