American Pale Wheat Ale |  5.60% ABV

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.

Bottled on 4-1-14

A - Nice light orange body with clean white ~1.5" head

S - Fruity and hoppy. Citrus notes were more on the lemon and pomegranate side.

T - Hops and citrus up front. Sour and bitter finish.

M - Good carbonation provides a thick swallow.

O - Wheat and pale ale makes for an interesting and unique flavored beer. I would take a good pale ale or a good wheat beer over this combo, but it's still a good beer that is worth a try if you like either of those styles. Prost!
