Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
An American Wheat Ale, Gumballhead is named in honor of the underground comic book cat created by Rob Syers. Initially a seasonal summer beer, now brewed year round due to demand. This beer helped redefine American Wheat Beers. Brewed with Amarillo Hops and a generous portion of American red wheat, Gumballhead has a complex hop aroma with notes of grapefruit, lemon zest, marmalade and peach. These flavors combined with low bitterness make Gumballhead a refreshing American Wheat Beer that doesn’t suck.

From notes.

A: Hazy orange. Finger of off white head. Stellar lacin. Moderate retention.

S: Very fruity. Lots of orange, some oj, pineapple and tropics coming off the glass.

T: Tropical fruit, soft biscuit like malt. Bit of grapefruit white coming through as well.

M: Pillowy like only a wheat beer can be. Soft, cloudlike.

O: This is a killer wheat beer. While I prefer the more aggressive Lil Sumpin Sumpin, this may be the ultimate hot weather beer.
