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.
