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!

It's good. Not super impressed. Of the wheat also that I have had, this is one of the better ones. Gumballhead pours a light gold with almost no cap. It had the aroma of ... Well... Candy? Flavor is fruity and sweet. Notes of lemon. Overall good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Note: this beer was on my got to try list since day one on this site as a wee 21-ish year old. And here we are. As amazing as my inexperienced mind could imagine, and there’s nothing kinky about this after I’ve dabbled in some obscure beers It’s like if the sexiest ipa made sweet sweet love with a wheat beer, and this freakishly beautiful offspring made everyone uncomfortable with their attraction to a wee baby. Yea it’s that good.

This is a hop heavy wheat beer. I am not the biggest wheat beer fan but really enjoyed this one. Good hop nose and finish without the bitter finish. No Belgium yeast flavors which I am happy about!

Bottle with a not able to read, bottled date..pours a darker than usual coppery color than expected for a wheat beer, not a big fan of wheat beers for the most part, but this is well executed, nose is malty with bready dough evident, not getting much lemon as usual,but some dried fruit essence,perhaps dried apricots, light bodied,easy to drink, goes well with food,this is my kind of wheat beer, kudos..

Maakun (3926) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2016
Bottle from the brewery bottled 6 days ago, shared. Clear golden with short lasting white head. Lots of fruity hops with pineapple, mango, pear. Maybe some of these fruity round bubblegums that come in assorted colors or maybe that’s just the name of this beer putting that in my head. Light malts and fresh baked bread. Just under medium sweet with over medium bitterness. Medium bodied with a bit dry feel. Very nice.

Acquired as gift from good friend. Pours a one finger white foamy head and has a hazy golden amber appearance. Ok lacing. Aromas of tropical fruit, pineapple, mangos, citrusy hops. Flavours are orangey, floral and citrus notes, tropical fruit. Some bready, doughy malt notes as well. A little bit of bitterness on the palate.
