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.

A fantastically refreshing wheat beer with a stunningly assertive taste.

Pale yellow colour with a very light haze. Poured an awful lot of head - not sure whether that's a sign of too little or too much bottle aging yeast, or if that's just the way this beer is - unfortunately only have the one bottle.

Subtle aroma, but followed with an eye-openingly brilliant taste. Amarillo hops, lots of them and beautifully done. Definitely a beer I will seek out again.
