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!

We all have our favorites in life; and for me when it comes to beer its 3 Floyds. The offerings from these master brewers never fail to hit the spot. Gumballhead is no exception. Just writing this rating is making me thirsty. Nose of grapefruit & lime, I really couldnt smell the wheat - just primarily citrus. Pours a hazy clover honey. The large white rocky & sticky head is very stiff, fully lasting and leaves behind great lace. The flavor is both very pleasant & very refreshing. Finally I taste a wheat offering with some balls. Good balance & depth, moderate acidity; the finish is mostly lemon citrus zing. The light body is soft and dry. These guys at 3 Floyds just dont fuck around! They are so ahead of the curve.

Initial appearance honey orange. Very clear virtually no head. No lacing. Extreme citrus hops on first wif with taste the same. Definite grapefruit hints throughout. Thanks to TannerTavernboys for the sample.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2006
(Bottle 65 cl) Slightly hazy golden with a small, creamy, white head. Fresh aroma of citrusy hops. Medium-bodied with some sweetish malt, but otherwise completely dominated by fresh aroma hops. Quite lovely, but in style far from your typical American Wheat - thankfully! 170406

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2006
Pour is fairly clear orangey golden color with a big bubbled long lasting skin of a white head...smell is citrus, pine, and rather sweet all at the same time...taste is strongly hoppy up front with some nice wheat and sweet flavors before the slightly bitter finish...this is damn good and very bizarre...far from what I expected...like an APAweizen of sorts...

Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - APR 30, 2006
Yeast, hay. wheat, and slightly piney herbal hops in the nose. Bright brassy clear body with a thin white head. Flavor is herbaly bitter and bright with touches of zesty citrus and some flowers. Finishes with a little doughy yeast.

Ungstrup (36473) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 24, 2006
A hazy orange beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet hoppy with a light touch of wheat, while the wheat has a stronger presence in the flavor on a sweet malty back ground, and still with a distinct hoppyness. OK, but nothing spectacular - Im not that fond of the strong hoppyness combined with the wheat.

Golden color, nearly no head, flat carbonation. Sweet floral nose. Stale hops taste accomplished by lavender - not my sausage! ;-)
