This is one of my favorite warm weather beers and I'm finally getting around to reviewing it. So here it is.

Gumballhead poured a very nice slightly hazed golden. A quarter inch white head. All kinds of carbonation bubbles along the sides of my pint glass.

This beer smells great. So refreshing. There's a tiny amount of malt but it's mostly just citrus hops. Lemon mostly. Smells like candy. My mouth is watering and I can't wait to drink this up.

I get a mouthful of citrus right up front but is quickly balanced by by a slightly sweet wheat malt. Ends with more citrus(lemon) from the hops and the smallest amout of pine. A good bitterness lingers for a few seconds and vanishes. There's enough hops to keep my mouth tingly until the next gulp though.

Mouthfeel is on the lighter side. Just the right amount of carbonation to keep things going and move the flavors around in your mouth.

Drinkability is way up there. It's so easy going down and it keeps you wanting more with the nice hop bite.

Like I said at the beginning of this review, this is one of my favorite warm weather beers. It is a very exciting example of a pale wheat and made just to my liking. If you see this pick it up. It's a must try.
