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.

Got his beer from boilermakerryan as a local. Thanks!

A: A beautiful light golden yellow with a minimal white head.

S: It has a very predominate hop aroma. There is a large range of citrus fruits present including lemon, pineapple, and grapefruit. In the background there is a nice bready aroma.

T: I am not a fan of wheat beers but this one is excellent. There is a dominate bitterness created by the hops along with the citrus. There is a lager/wheat flavor that is balanced nicely by the caramely body and the hops.

M: It fills the mouth well but could be a little heavier.

O: A very good beer. This is one of the few wheat beers in my top list of beers. If given the opportunity to try this beer, do it.
