Gumballhead is a beautiful brew. Pours a perfect wheat beer color- orange-yellow gives way to light red tones in the light. Small bubbles formed from initial pour but resolved quickly.
Smells of pear and apple with light hop. Also get a hint of the wheat/yeast character.
Initial taste has clean wheat/grain flavor that is followed by slight citrus and apple tones. Also got just a hint of bitter- maybe Hallertau hops? Slight alcohol taste. Smooth.
In all honesty, I am not usually a wheat-beer person. With that said, I could drink this beer over and over again. So smooth.
I'd say I could use some more of this Gumballhead!

A: Only slightly hazy orange-gold body, tufts of bubbles, a good head that leaves a thin coating on the surface, a few legs of sticky lace.
S: Mostly strikingly clean hops, most citrus fruits. Faint background of wheat. Really good, but too hop-centric for the named style.
T: Again, too hoppy for the style, but it's too good for me to knock it much. Clean, clean hops showcasing a variety of citruses with minimal bitterness playing off a slightly sweet wheat base. Finish could be longer.
M: Supremely crisp. Fluid. Lively. Refreshing. This is fantastic.
O: A simple concept wonderfully executed. Exactly matches my preferences for low bitterness, restrained hopping, and mild wheat sweetness. It's between a wheat and an IPA, I guess they can't appease both camps ('this IPA is weak!' 'this wheat has too much hops!'). All said and done, a great, easily repeatable beer.
