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!

Bottle thanks to Bob. Pours a cloudy gold with small off white head that lasts leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is wheat, bubblegum, and citrus. Thin mouth, lemon zest, bubblegum, light bitterness, easy to drink, very good.

MarcoDL (2651) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle at tasting. Golden color. Aroma of grassy wheat, some soft hops and surprisingly enough indeed some gumball. Soft taste of lime, citrus, hop, wheat and a little yeast. Very drinkable and smooth. Good beer.

Pours a clear golden colour with a creamy off white head. Aroma is citrusy with slight spice and yeast scents. Taste is mildly sweet but is quite balanced by the hops so it’s not extremely bitter either. Medium body, smooth on the palate, and nicely carbonated. Not your typical wheat ale but a cool variation that works out well.

First of all, let me preface this review by saying that this is hands down my favorite beer of all time, so I’m a little biased. I’ve been drinking it off and on for at least 8 years. This is the first bottle I’ve been able to get my hands on for a year or two, so I’m pretty excited. Bottle into my Spiegelau IPA glass. Big pillowy white head that leaves lots of lacing. Wheat malt is evident in the nose, fresh lemon zest, a little cut grass, a touch of citrus hops. Taste is magical. It’s soft wheat, a bit of pale/bready malt, more juicy/ lemony hop, touch of bubblegum, finishes slightly sweet and slightly bitter, with just a touch of resin really late. Carbonation is medium, super smooth, light to medium body and soft mouthfeel. Not a hop monster, just a wonderful symphony of flavors. My desert island beer.

Fantastisk humle doft. Mer av en vete IPA än en Wheat Ale. Bra balanserad beska tillsammans med en viss vete. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
