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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

No freshness date
A: Pretty, golden hue w/light wispy quick dissipating head
little lacing on glass
S: Citrus nose (orange/lemon grass)
T: Bitter hops and lemon meringue, sweet and grassy underneath
bitter again on finish, lemon remains on the tongue
M: Sharp, crisp and dry carbonation pops early then oily


This beer does not follow suit. It goes big for the style. Very unique. Bitter yet drinkable and just sweet enough to really savor. One of my go-to favorites.
