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.

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

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 (1093) - Southampton, 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.

pineypower (3093) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - OCT 18, 2004
Pours out a nice golden cloudy color with a pretty decent lacy head. It has a nice hoppy aroma with notes of citrus. The taste is much more balanced than any other wheat Iíve had, you almost canít even tell it is a wheat. The hoppy flavor does a nice job of bringing balance to this brew, making a tasty lower alcohol brew that actually has some depth.

Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - OCT 15, 2004
Pours a golden, moderately carbonated glass with a small head and good lacing. Aroma spicy, flowery and hoppy. Taste fruity, flowery and citrusy. Has a medium mouthfeel and a clean very slightly bitter finish. Interesting beer, really not what I would consider a wheat beer, but flavorful and drinkable none-the-less. A decent quaff.

Bottle. Poured a medium amber color. Pretty clear. White head is medium lived. Good lacing. Aroma is wheaty, some spices, touches of the amarillo hops. Nicely balanced. Taste is somewhat spicy and malty. Hops kick it up a bit. Fairly well done.

Kevin (2192) - New Mexico, USA - OCT 12, 2004
bottle, pours a hazy golden color with a fat fluffy white head. sweet floral aroma that is very hoppy. very sweet wheaty taste with a nice tart hop balance. a touch of fruity banana flavor lingers at finish with a sweet candy flavor. I didnít expect such hoppiness from this, but it is enjoyable.

jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 8, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2008 January 2008. Bottle from last year. Golden yellow body with a small white head. Hoppy aroma of grapefruit with very light resin. Lots of grapefruit citrus in the flavour, but a lot less than last time. (7+) Average palate. Excellent quaffable brew, but obviously time has diminished it somewhat. 7/3/7+/3/16 - 3.7 <P>August 2004. Nice golden body with a smallish head. Some haze and floaties. Big grapefruit aroma with a lemony undercurrent. Hops are pleasantly dominant in the flavour, leaving a long lingering hoppy aftertaste. Bit of green pellety notes in the finish. Palate is a touch light but appropriate to the beer. Not at all what I expected, but delicious nonetheless. Thanks for the trade Joey_Capps 9/3/9/3/16 - 4.0
