Had the second of the two Gumballhead that I was able to get. Pours a nice yellowish orange with an OK head. The smell is phenomenal. I'm a sucker for a sweet hoppy smell that is headed up with an abundance of citrus notes. The taste is very good as well. The citrus gets you up front followed by a relatively smooth hoppy finish. The only negative to say is that it doesn't go far enough with the citrus and hops. No doubt this is a very good beer that I would get again though.

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.
