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.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Pours a slightly cloudy yellow gold with a good sized white head. Nose is hoppy. Very creamy with a silky texture. Hops are upfront and dominate the flavor. Not overly bitter, there is a wheat grain backbone to help balance the hops. A hophead’s delight.

Bottle to glass. Pours a mostly clear golden yellow color with an off-white head. Aroma is fleshy fruit sweetness with citrus. Flavor is a perfectly balanced citrusy bitter sweet character with a mild wheat background. Light in body, smooth, very drinkable. An excellent beer.

At SeaJax sample. Slightly warm when I got to the 4th sample. Very wheat-y with a slight hop bitter aftertaste. I know it's 3 Floyd's but not for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Catching up on old ticks. Honestly one of the strongest wheat beers I remember having. Perfectly balanced with nice bright hops. Smooth and easy. Hope I can try this one again soon.
