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.

Straw-colored with a fine white head. Powerful aroma of banana, bubblegum, and spice. Lively and spicy on the palate. Leads to a very tasty wheat beer. Malt, yeast, bubblegum, and pepper. Slightly bitter aftertaste. A delicious wheat beer.

Draft at Taste the Rarity Pours apricot orange with a white head. Aroma that reminds me of sunflower seeds, light soap, and spice. Flavor is a citrus explosion, leaning towards the sweet side with a full mouthfeel. Interesting!

Bärnstensfärgad med litet skum. Doftar Amerikansk humle och veteöl. Smakar humligt och lite söt. Lite för gammal för ölen känns lite trött!

Poured from bottle into tulip glass. Bottled on 6/16 so this was only 11 days old! Appearance: Slightly cloudy, white head about 1-2 inches thick. Many bubbles floating up from the bottom of the glass. Upon swishing, sparkling bubbles coated the sides of the glass. Color was a light gold. This beer is beautiful and very inviting! Aroma: Very pungent with big Amarillo hop aroma. Profile consists of floral notes, fruit (passion fruit, a little grapefruit), and pine. Taste: Hop domination on the front. Big grapefruit flavor and pine. As this beer warmed up I picked up the wheat backbone which brings a special refreshing kick of malts to the finish. Palate: Very sudsy with a medium body, almost creamy. Overall: This is the ideal for a refreshing beer. Beautiful merger of a pale ale and wheat beer. Very Amarillo-centric and it makes sense with that big fruit flavor! Happy to have had this with such a fresh born on date!
