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.

Light Orange. Heavily aromatic, mainly passion fruits (peach, tangerine and lemon. The grains bring forth biscuits and caramel in the aroma. An interesting, unorthodox approach to the style but I donít find this to be all that different from loads of others. It is hoppier, no doubt, but whatever the hops bring they take away equally. Notes of lemon and other citrus fruits.

Pailhead (6278) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - SEP 23, 2004
Bottle: You can definitely smell the "gumball" in the aroma as well as grapefruit. Pours a hazy orangish-gold with a big white head with good retention. Flavor is actually a little weak. Not much in the initial flavor and than a slight hop grapefruit taste balanced with a little citrus and sweetness in the finish. Not bad, but the flavor is a little on the weak side.

Golden pour with a bit of head, good crisp hop aroma. Tart finish makes it a good thirst quencher. Definate lawnmower beer. Doesnít have much common wheat beer flavors.

Decent summer beer, light orange color, lots of fruity yeastyness in the aroma. Great flavor, better than most I have had in the past. I would recommend checking this one out!

Golden orange body with some chunks. Thin white head with some lace. Nose of wheat, hops and coriander. Clean citrus flavor accompanied by wheat and hops. Hoppy, citric finish.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2005 09.16.04 Bomber thanks to marinaro500. Bright, orangey gold, lightly hazed, bits of stuff floating about look like lemon pulp or fiberglass. Smallish head for a wheat. Trademark FFF aromas of pinesol - some lemon. Beer is a glorious mouthful of lemon grass and pine. Not so wheaty for a wheat. Crisp and thin body. Refreshing and light. Very nice treat, thanks Joe!

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2005 7/8/20053F can say whatever they want to about what they are doing differently from last year. Iíve had this yearís on tap at the brewery and from the bottle, and itís definitely hoppier and thusly, tastier to this hop-head than it used to be. Ergo, Iím upping my rating from 5/4/6/4/13 to 7/4/8/4/17. So there!

9/8/2004A nice wheat, but I was concerned when I witnessed a lager-only buddy slamming these down from the tap at the Maple Tree. Then again, maybe heís growing. Itís got a nice amber color and a full off-white head. Nice hoppy aroma with an underlying grassiness. Good taste with a nice dosage of spicy hops. Refreshing.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - SEP 7, 2004
MIldly cloudy amber color with a fluffy off-white head. Fresh spicy hop aromas with only telltale signs that this is a wheat beer. Almost imperceptable wheaty/yeasty aromas. Fuller in body than I expected with a boatload of crisp, citric and spicy hop flavors. Hops give way to astringent wheat notes in the finish. More a pale ale than a wheat beer in my estimation, but it was enjoyable in any case.

This is a good American Wheat. Hoppy, lemon, and citric flavors. Finishes clean, crisp, and smooth.

As I would expect of three fís they push the definition of style here in highly creative ways. The amarillo hops make this an IPA lovers wheat. No need to compromise on your summer beer- you get the wheat, lemon and light body with a juicy hop blast. Some spicyness on the tongue and banana in the nose make the finish on this one memorable. No lawn mowers here.
