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

Lightly hazy copper with a white head. Citrus and spice over light wheat notes. Medium bodied. Finish is crisp and citrus spiced. Very nice.

Bottle courtesy of Drake. Many thanks! Pours clear golden with a soft white head. Aroma is citrusy -orange and lemon (This is a wheat beer?), minor grain. Flavor is tangy citrus including orange juice, light grain, wheat, light honey, gum, hint of banana in the aftertaste. Wow, lots of flavor and none of it's boring.

Wow!! Never did i know a wheat beer could be so outstanding! Pours gold w/ a thin white head & excellent lacing. The aroma is robust w/ hops & a hint of sweetness. The taste has a really nice hop flavor while still feeling like a wheat beer & being refreshing. The mouthfeel is subtle & soft making this an absolute delight on the plate. Phenomenal!

A basic pale ale. Wheat ale? Ok you can call it that. Sweet chewy lots of body. Light citrus lots of malty chewy body. Thin fading head. Average, for abv nice though. A few years ago this would have been amazing.

pije sobie człowiek takie piwko bez wniku, nie zna, nie czytał, darowanemu się nie zagląda, itp. - wiadomo pszeniczniak amerykański, aromat już zaskakuje, bo daje fajnie nachmielonym West Coastem ze skórką pomarańczy, smak to już słody pszeniczne, grejpfrut, skórka pomarańczy, troszeczkę żywicy, idzie w wytrawność, dużo się dzieje. po wypiciu się zerka z ciekawości w ocenki z RB i zdziwko - 2gi pszeniczniak na świecie!

Poured from 12oz brown bottle into a nonic pub glass, a clear golden amber colour with white foam, lasting with lace. Nice soft, round, bready grainbill thanks to delicious red wheat malt, with faint caramel sweetness. Emphasis on Amarillo hops, one of my favourite US varieties: super fruity, tangy, grapefruit and orange marmalade, apricots, candied apples, earth, pine resin, honey, perfume. Light-medium body, strong carbonation, lingering bittersweet aftertaste. A particularly good hoppy wheat ale.

Pours a finger and half of head on a clear straw body. Aroma is candied pine and lemon. Taste is a play of mild sweet and bitterness. Texture is crisp.

On tap at a taco joint while visiting the midwest. Dinner with my Uncle for this one. The wheat added nice roundness. I love amarillo when I brew, so i loved this beer!
