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. Check out Skingraft Comics and Records at www.skingraftrecords.com. Cheers!

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

Slightly hazy golden-orange colour. Absolutely luscious aroma of sweet fruit and grapefruity hops. Crisp, refreshing body. Hop flavour is big, but not overpowering. Flavours of lemon, grapefruit & pine. Really nice stuff! Thanks for jercraigs for sharing.

I am impressed by this american wheat and Iíll tell you why: it doesnít taste like water! Every american wheat I proffer to my palate tastes bland and watery. This beer is the crisp wheaty, mild citrus qualities of a wheat yet with some kick ass hops to smack you around a bit!

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2004
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 (6376) - 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.
