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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Orangish yellow, slightly cloudy. Nice fluffy head that lasts a long time. Good lace down the sides.

S: Very nice citrusy hops. Lots of orange, tangerine and even a little grapefruit. Hints of pine. Very aromatic. Backed up by some breadiness from the wheat.

T: More of that lovely hop flavor. Very citrusy. Lots of orange and tangerine flavors. Some grapefruity/pine bitterness. Really no malty flavors other than a faint sweetness and some breadiness. The hops are really over the top for the style. Wish the malts were a wee bit stronger.

M: Light bodied. Maybe a little too much for the amount of hops. Finishes dry. Sometimes can feel a little watery.

D: A really tasty beer overall. I just wish there was a hint more malt and body. Would be a quite enjoyable, summer hop fix. I'll buy it again, but only in the summer.
