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.

Smells awesome and tastes of citrus, wheat, and lots of hops! Balanced taste and enjoyable for any occasion.

Hops up front, citrus in the middle and nice finish. Actually tastes somewhere between a pale ale and a wheat. One of the best wheat beers I've had to this point. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Très surprenant, des aromes d’épices asiatiques, une base maltée mélangeant caramel et blé, avec une finale douce, équilibrée par un bel houblonnage, aucune amertume. Excellente bière de soif.

Had this a million times, just realized I never rated it before. Orange color with white fluffy head. Taste is right down the middle of a pale ale and wheat beer, almost more on the pale side since I hate wheats, yet love this beer. Fruitty, citrus, malts, delicious.

Very hop forward - the hops kind of take over from the more subtle wheat aromas here. Light bitter finish. Tap at Big Star.

Floral and bubblegum aroma. Golden brown color. Taste is slight piney hops, with som bubble gum and then juicey citrus. Very nicely balanced. Slight carbonation on the palate. Will seek this out again.

Pours a hazy golden color with white head. Amazing hop aroma and not too bitter.

Look - See through dull, light colored gold. White, medium head. Smell - Has the dank hop aroma. There is malt as well. Not really "wheat." Taste - Very good wheat (mellow), hop (slight bitter), and malt taste. There is a bread aftertaste. Not very floral or fruity. Feel - Stings the tongue. Feels like water. Overall - Drink this on a porch. This is a good wheat to ale transition beer.

Poured from a bottle....pale, white head...one of those beers that doesn’t have to stop to change color. Fruity without the hops. Crisp, clean and easy to drink, a great summer beer. Too bad it’s a never ending winter. I’d probably love this when I’m out fishing on a nice summer day, but I’m old and my bones hurt. Three Floyds is hard come by around here, unless it’s Robert the Bruce. I’ll try it again later....I hope.

Bottle at Munich Tap House, 24th March 15. Clean and tasty, nice slight citrus in the taste, slight malt in the finish, good hops not overly done. It’s good

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.
