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.

Strangely clear for a wheat beer, dark golden, but a nice head.

Some wheat in the smell, but hoppy citrus dominates. Smells fresh and fruity.

Clean flavors, wheat, light malt, light fruits, and citrus. Also something in this reminds me of Rogue's yeast. Big citric hop finish melds nicely with the flavor.

Mouthfeel crisp and quite carbonated.

Seemed untraditional for a wheat beer, but wow this was tasty. My glass just disappeared. I will definitely pick this up again.
