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!

(bottle) Hazy gold with generous white head. Hops aroma with hints of sweetness. Flavor is an odd mix of some sweetness, banana and clove with the citrus hops.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUN 11, 2006
Pours a light hazy golden with a foamy off white head that sustained and left some lacing. Aroma of up front hops, orange, orther citrus, caramel. Not what I expected from an American Wheat, although I did expect the hops from 3 Floyds. Flavor was more of the hoppy/malt balance. Picked up a slight hint of wheat in the flavor along with lemon and caramel. Very enjoyable/refreshing beer with a great hop presence.

22 bomber. Slightly dark copper pour, clear with no sediment and a thin eggshell white head. Some bubblegum in the aroma (I got it right away), mingled with citrusy hops. Mildly efferescent mouthfeel. Very smooth and you can feel the wheat tingling with the hops in the middle. Honestly, not a lot of wheat in this one, but I can see why its rated so high. Has all the good easy drinking characteristics of a hefe, and has such a light and crisp hopping throughout that it almost hits upon APA territory. Better than Oberon. Not crazy good. Hell, this stuff is impressive.

I wish I was lucky enough to live in an area where this beer is marketed. I am from Green Bay and picked up a bottle of Gumball at Sendiks in Milwaukee. This is one of the beers that I have been hoping to find someday, and I found one by chance. Classified as an America Wheat? Poured a small glass. Aroma was lime and pine to me. Like Two-Hearted Ale from Bells. Poured Clear gold. Head (which means nothing to me) would be average as to length and thickness. The hops were superb. Not too bitter - but with that trademark hoppy aftertaste. This is a very good product. Quality speaks volumes.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2006 Pours a medium yellow with a medium bubbly off white head. Mostly a hoppy beer but the wheat does show through, especially in the aftertaste that hangs around. Like a mix between a wheat and IPA.

On tap at the brew pub. Gumballhead is the worlds coolest cat. Hes killed people. Why oh why does it not pour as wonderfully as it smells, tastes, and treats. This is a regular dark red brown, with a regular head. Smells like marijuana, potpourri flowers, candy, hops, sugar, citrus fruits, and love. Everything good and sweet all come together is perfect, intense sinergy. Tastes so great! Perfectly intense, very heavy start of citrus hops, moving into the more herbal flavors, fruity tea and flowers, ending on sweet candy fruit and gumball candy. One of the very best beers in the world.

bu11zeye (12868) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUN 4, 2006
(22oz. bottle) Pours a clear copper body with an average off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit and pineapple. Flavor of juicy citrusy hops, lightly toasted malt, and caramel. More of an IPA than your typical American Wheat.

eaglefan538 (3034) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 3, 2006
An interesting approach to a wheat beer. Typical american wheat appearance: clear orange-amber in color. The aroma was hoppy and wheat-like. The flavor was hops first and almost an aftertaste level of strength for the wheat base. Mouthfeel was medium bodied and carbonated. Enjoyable and refreshing for the summer days.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2006 Bomber bottle. (First rating 7/4/8/4/10. Bought at the Vintage Cellar in Blacksburg, VA.) Second tasting doesnt take me by storm like the first one did.<P> The aroma is moderately malty with a note of toasted grain, light cookie and caramel; Hoppy with light notes of herb, lemon, moderate notes of grapefruit, heavy and pungent resin and pine; yeasty with a light note of dough; light miscellaneous notes of black tea.<P> The flavor is moderately sweet, moderately bitter with a long, lightly sweet, moderately bitter finish. Biscuity retros. The body was light, the texture was watery and the carbonation was lively.

25 oz bottle. Yellow-orange with a bubbly white head. Smells like a wheat cleaning product with some fresh pine. Another whiff and its a dead ringer for powdered lemon ice tea mix. Eerie. A wheat beer? Tasty enough but I cant get past the sweet tea. I wanted to cut this with a Hoeegarden to give it some punch.
