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.

Thanks to JoeBeerMan for this one! 12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.

A- Cloudy straw color with thin white head that quickly dissipates.

S- Smells almost like a wheat IPA, with crisp wheat mingling with orange and lemon-scented hop aromas.

T- Also tastes like a wheat-based IPA. Interesting stuff. The crisp wheat malt mingles with very citrusy hops to make a well-balanced brew. Nice to see something in a wheat beer other than the typical banana and cloves.

M- Pretty thin, but nicely carbonated. Not bad.

D- Very high. Could easily put a sixer of this away. Very refreshing.

While not as earth-shattering as I was expecting, a very nice APWA. Interesting to see such a hop-forward wheat beer, and I would definitely have this more often if it were available to me.
