Thanks to mjord23 for this one. Teku glass.

A: Pouts straw color, very good clarity, with a half finger of snow white head which recedes quickly to a persistent ring. Minimal lacing but pretty good retention.

S: Light malt, a little lemon zest. Not a whole lot going on.

T: A little wheat, and I’m really struggling to find anything else. Not a whole lot of flavor, but highly drinkable.

M: Medium body and light carbonation.

O: Overall, a solid if unexceptional wheat beer. What it lacks in flavor it makes up in sessionability.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Crisp amber ale with a nice white snowcap head.

Smell: Beautiful. Full of hops with a sweet lingering aroma. The pine really is first on the nose followed by a plethora of fruity notes.

Taste: Good blend of malts and hops. Has a sweeter flavor than most American Wheats. Gumballhead has A LOT of fruity flavors that hit the tongue first. Very little bitterness to the bear.

Mouthfeel: Lightly carbonated beer.

Overall: The beer is one of my favorites and hard to give an unbiased review. In the spirit of 3F's... It's not normal. It's unlike most wheat beers. Has a wonderful aroma and taste while lacking traditional bitterness. Another fantastic beer!
