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.

A semi fizzy light yellow beer with a minimal head. The aroma is soft, but I pick up notes of mild gasoline and mild grapefruit and of course, wheat. That’s what happens when you brew a 100% Amarillo beer. Don’t worry, the artwork and prejudiced reputation of the brewer makes up for it, right? Not really. The flavor is better than the aroma with notes of grapefruit, lemon and wheat, but isn’t anything special. Overall, this beer is OK for an American wheat beer, but is far worse the the ratings suggest. The automatic hard on you have for 3F beers needed a dose of reality and this is it : )

Bottle from Ian. This has a great aroma of spicy hops. Yellow color. Flavor is a little odd. Surprisingly salty, but watery and thin palate.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Gumballhead pours a pretty hazy golden yellow with a two finger thick eggshell white foamy head that lasts a good couple minutes. The aroma is lemon and earthy. The flavor is bread, earthy with a lemon finish. The beer is medium bodied and very smooth. Overall this is an easy drinker with a smooth crisp finish and good flavor.

DuchessOfIowa (51) - Iowa, USA - JUL 12, 2015
Poured from a bottle. Golden straw haze with healthy white head that laces very well. Very aromatic with citrus and lemon. Some slight caramel sweetness with wheat grain malt. Soft bitterness to compliment the sweetness.

mambossa (93) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2015
6 pack bought at brewpub. Bottled 6/24/2015. Pours a bright gold with nice head. Aroma is almost sugary-cereal, wheat, minimal grassiness, enormously sweet. Flavor is juicy, bright, lemony, banana; drinkability and mouthfeel of a wheat but much more colorful in flavor. A staple. Best consumed fresh.
