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.

Thank you again Scubarex for this fantastic brew in my SS BIF box

A: the color is a gorgeous copper straw color that almost shimmers with a perfectly white head that doesnt evolve into anything massive but as a decent residual staying power

S: mildly hoppy in fragrance with a slight fruity spice and some malt but nothing that stands out too prominent good or bad

T: light and crisp very easy to drink there is an obvious wheat background that is the support of this beer with a subtle fruity hops that balance it out. you are not burdened by the unfortunate banana taste of a classic wheat beer, and for that i am very grateful this is probably the most sessionable beer ive had to date. its not big or flashy but it nails a style and niche al the same
