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.

Bottle shared with Hogtown Harry and Blankboy, courtesy of Harry. Dark yellow, decent sized white head. Tons of orange citrus, sugar, malt, and spice – wow, there are a lot of hops in here. Medium mouthfeel. Stunningly hoppy wheat taste, still lots of citrus (but not as much as aroma suggests) and a very peppery / bitter finish. Very refreshing, and at this alcohol, probably the most accessible (for hop heads anyway) 3 Floyds yet. Really good.

Bottle: good nose, I get a citrus pine combo, more orange on the nose. orange yellow color. small head. well carbonated though. sweet bitter flavors. orange and grapefruit. bitter finish, thinner body. Very tasty. Different than any wheat I’ve had before. was much closer to an IPA.

bomber. Aroma: Citrus, cinnamon, and a hint of pine. Appearance: light golden color with the slightest haze. Large off-white head. Flavor: First flavor is grapefruit, followed by a solid hop flavor from the dry-hopping, followed by a strong wheat flavor, and then the bitterness kicks in. Bitterness is refreshing and not to overdone. Very drinkable. Also picking up flavors of pineapple, toffee, and leather. Palate: Good carbonation that lends to the refreshing nature of the beer. Overall: A very good and easy to drink beer. The hoppiness might catch an unaware drinker off guard, but I found it to be very well balanced.

Smells like dry-hopped goodness: cirus fruits and summer flowers. Taste is sweet maltiness, some lemon and general citrus, very little yeastines. Really refreshing. Finish is slightly bitter; almost has a fruity pebble taste. Loses some overall points because of high price for what it is (should probably be in 12oz bottles for same price as Alpha King). Probably my current favorite 3F brew.

golden yellow and hazy color. slight off-white head. light and crisp on the palate. Aroma is citrus with noticable maltiness. Flavor was nice malt/hop balance with a slight wheat taste underneath. Very good and gread label

kwoeltje (2234) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - JUN 13, 2006
(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.

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.

Hangover (1151) - oxford, Georgia, USA - JUN 10, 2006
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 it’s 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.
