Review - Three Floyds Brewing Company's Gumballhead
"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 SkingraftRecords.com. Cheers!" -- Three Floyds Brewing Company
Pours a light amber color with white, small, fizzy head with decent staying power. Weak lacing, over a slightly cloudy, active body. Nose is loaded with citrusy, fruity, apricot and grapefruit notes. Honey was also noted. Initial taste is moderately bitter, mellowing to a lighter bitter finish with tinges of citrus on the tongue. Average duration. Light bodied, it has an active body with a watery texture. Unfiltered, leaves the palate feeling like its just been passed by with a half a grapefruit. Oily finish on the tongue. Boo-ya.
