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.

Crockett (1081) - 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 (3050) - 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 I’ve had, you almost can’t 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.

qdog (201) - Cleveland, Mississippi, USA - OCT 15, 2004
bottle. golden amber in color. thin white head. good lacing. great smell of citrus and hops. a smooth taste of hops overrides the wheat taste and follows with a twinge of lemon. i will drink again.

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 didn’t expect such hoppiness from this, but it is enjoyable.

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

GregClow (3154) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2004
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.

drinkbeer (283) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - OCT 4, 2004
I am impressed by this american wheat and I’ll tell you why: it doesn’t 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 don’t 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.
