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!

Tap @ PP Carlsbad. Clear golden pour with a froth of white foam. Aroma is light bitter hops, honey-like sweetness, and a clean malt backbone. Taste is clean hop bitterness, honey sweetness, and wheat. Clean mouthfeel. Drinks more like an american pale ale than a wheat beer but itís plenty tasty. Nice beer.

So, here I sit rating beer # 4000 and this is appropriate. Iíve been trying to taste this for years on end. Finally found on tap at the vintage, a great place fer sure. I was hoping for a well behaved wheat beer with bubble gum flavors but what I got was a well behaved slightly hoppy beer. Phil is a great business guy who knows what heís doing. I was thinken this would be one great wheat beer but it turned out to be somewhat hoppy, surprisingly so. Pale yellah. Slight B/O aroma, what is it with these hoppy beers lately, not in to too much B/O unless its my favorite mateís, heheh and even then I think of it as perfume. Good co2 keeps this stuff refreshing none the less, baby. Fun overall. But you can tell its made to please the hop heads round here, probably why it has such a good rating. Medium hop bitterness on the finish. For a hoppy beer, not bad by this lager lovers standards. Considering the hop effects from the start, not bad overall. Glad to have finally tasted this and on tap thanks to phil at vintage, YEAH!

Bottle. Thanks to Mike. Pours a clear golden color. Tropical/citrus hop aromas dominate the nose. Finishes very well. Medium light bitterness. Mostly an ipa beer. Very smooth, but hop packed beer. Tropical fruit notes from the fresh hops. Very nice.

commonmac (294) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Tap in a pint glass at Kaseyís Tavern. Golden colored ale with minimal head. Lacing is average at best. Surprised this is referred to as a wheat. More citrus than most wheat options. Easy to drink and enjoyable. I would contend itís a pale ale pretending to be a wheat. Some sweetness in the middle that disappears by the end. Iím a fan. No idea why this is called gumballhead.

Tap in pint glass at kaseys in Chicago. Gold with white head. Citrus hop aroma. Hoppy taste throughout. slightly sweet. Tastes more like a pale ale than a wheat. A bit thin in the mouth. Itís ok. Like getting the orange gumball. You really wanted the cherry, but itís better than the banana one at least.
