look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A- Crystal clear golden body with a bubbly bone white head. Was expecting a cloudy body based on this being a wheat beer, but this one is completely filtered and clear.

S- Grapefruit, spicy grains, citrusy hops, fresh grass. Smells more like a hoppy pale ale than a wheat beer.

T- Wheat comes through at first, as do grainy flavors, the grapefruit and citrus comes through in a big way towards the end, but the finish has some herbal, dank, hop qualities. The combination is very good.

M- Light-medium bodied, high carbonation, crisp and refreshing, but full flavored.

O- Huge flavor for a low abv wheat beer. A really well put together beer that could fit into a few style categories.

Gumballhead is one of my favorite beers. It is very hard to find in the Indianapolis area but when I do find it I buy it. Highly recommended as it is a very drinkable beer and one that if you offer it to your friends they will really appreciate it and trust your beer judgement.
