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.

Hazy, yellow-orange pour with a frothy, white head. The aroma has obvious wheat mixed with lemon, orange peel, and some spice. It has a medium body with a slightly sticky texture and average carbonation. The taste begins with the slightest bitterness and becomes more sweet to the finish. This beer is smooth, flavorful, and still refreshing.
