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: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

A- poured into a pint glass from a wonderful 12 oz longneck with a sick label, is a lovely lighter amber with a little bit of head and good lacing

S- can def smell the Amarillo (spicy aggressive hop) ,a little bit of wheat
T- very good carbonation, kinda a hybrid between an pale ale a wibier, very interesting and wonderful
M- great carbonation, very smooth , a beer that I could drink all day
D- out of the park, i could drink 10 of these no problem, very low abv

another home run from quite possibly my favorite North American brewery that I cant buy ( and there arent many in phillly)
