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.

This is my favorite summer beer. Incredible beer and if I'm not mistaken there's quite a hint of hops in this "summer wheat". Leave it to FFF to make a summer wheat better. Just an all around tasty summer beverage...or anytime for that matter.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass

A- Dark honey color, slight haziness, thick white head that stands on its own for a good bit leaving a thick lacing along the glass.

S- Initially hit with lots of hops then you get some citrus and a scent somewhere between mango and peach, very pleasant.

T- Outstanding, get the full gambit of clean hops, a crisp peachy wheat finish, very nice taste could quaff a number of these.

M - Medium, creamy with mild to medium carbonation.

O- I really like this beer, very crisp and clean taste.
