12 ounce bottle into pint glass; no bottle dating, but was purchased recently. Pours lightly hazy golden amber color with a nice 2 finger fairly dense white head with excellent retention, that reduces to a nice cap that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Spotty foamy lacing clings to the glass, with some good streaming carbonation. Aromas of pineapple, grapefruit, lemon zest, orange zest, floral, pine, herbal, grass, and wheat. Damn nice aromas with good strength and hop/malt balance and complexity. Taste of pineapple, grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, floral, grass, pine, wheat, and herbal spiciness. Fair amount of floral bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pineapple, citrus zest, floral, grass, pine, wheat, and herbal spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice amount of hop flavor and good complexity and balance; zero cloying flavors on the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming on the finish. Overall this is an excellent pale wheat beer. Very nice hop flavor with good balance and complexity; extremely smooth and easy to drink. A highly enjoyable sessionable offering for sure.

How many times have you said or heard someone say I am not a big fan of Wheat. I suspect those in this category have not had Gumballhead. With a solid well balanced dose of Amarillo Hops it is hard to say this is a Wheat Beer. A friend suggested I mix Bell's Two Hearted and Oberon and it tastes really good. Almost as good as Gumballhead.
A great session beer with perfect balance of Pine, Citrus, Wheat and Hops.
This is the king of Session Beers

I've probably only had this 50 times in the last 18 months. Served in a tulip glass in my brand new beer dungeon.
A - Light amber / golden / orange with white head. Very clear for a wheat. Nice lacing on the sides of the glass.
S - Fruity (Passion, orange, citrus) hoppiness and a bit of wheat.
T - Very nice crisp wheat with fruity citrus tones. Finishes with a bit of pine hoppiness and more fruitiness.
M - The wheat brew makes for a very nice light mouthfeel. The finish is dry and fruity on the back end with lingering hop goodness.
O - An awesome summer beer that I will drink anytime of the year it turns up in my area (which is not often enough). A tossup for my favorite year-round FFF with Robert the Bruce.
