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.

Quasimodo (217) - chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 27, 2013
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. Thatís what happens when you brew a 100% Amarillo beer. Donít 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 isnít 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 : )

Poured from a bottle....pale, white head...one of those beers that doesnít have to stop to change color. Fruity without the hops. Crisp, clean and easy to drink, a great summer beer. Too bad itís a never ending winter. Iíd probably love this when Iím out fishing on a nice summer day, but Iím old and my bones hurt. Three Floyds is hard come by around here, unless itís Robert the Bruce. Iíll try it again later....I hope.

Bottle pours hazy old gold with a thin lace. Hoppy, grainy nose, lemony, bitter finish. Overall, a nicely balanced session beer with lots of flavor.

willisread (388) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 14, 2015
12oz bottle from Old Town in Louisville. Poured into a shaker pint. Nice big soapy head, with a hazy goldenrod color. Big lemon, lime and yuzu nose with a hint of spice present, maybe coriander? IPA crispness on the palate with wheat-like bubblegum undertones. Well-balanced between wheat beer and IPA. Superb dry finish with nice tartness.

Twelve ounce bottle from my nephew (thanks, Andy!), tasted on December 24, 2014, Cloudy amber/yellow hue, strong citrus nose with some spice, tangy citrus/spice flavor with some wheat character. Quite tasty.
