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.

Draft poured into 3Floyds pint glass at Chicago's own Local Option.
One-finger, pale yellow head sits atop clear, saffron liquid.
Heavy (for a any wheat beer) hop nose with citrus, orange and mild spices.
Wheat balanced citrus with nice hop presence separates this brew from your standard wheat offering. Complex, medium body with plenty of lingering bitterness mellowed smooth from lips to tongue.
My favorite wheat beer and like most 3Floyds products deviates from the norm into areas that produce pleasant surprises.

Serving type: on-tap
