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 in a pint glass at Kasey’s 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 it’s a pale ale pretending to be a wheat. Some sweetness in the middle that disappears by the end. I’m 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. It’s ok. Like getting the orange gumball. You really wanted the cherry, but it’s better than the banana one at least.

Meduim gold color with a two finger white head. Aroma is light pine, citrus, grass and some hops. Taste is piney, lemony and a nice sweet and hoppy balance. Refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Taste the Rarity Pours apricot orange with a white head. Aroma that reminds me of sunflower seeds, light soap, and spice. Flavor is a citrus explosion, leaning towards the sweet side with a full mouthfeel. Interesting!

Bärnstensfärgad med litet skum. Doftar Amerikansk humle och veteöl. Smakar humligt och lite söt. Lite för gammal för ölen känns lite trött!

Happened to notice this on the bottle list at Gino’s. checked and they just got many cases. Clear dark yellow. Grapefruit nose. Great palate makes this. Soft peaches and citrus. Dry finish. Delectable taste and palate.
