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.

Three Floyds Gumballhead
A: Pours a beautiful cloudy orange with little head.
S: Funk, like yeast and some farmhouse smells.
T: Not much just a nice balanced wheat flavor.
M: Some sour zest. Interesting with some minor hop notes on the end.
O: Good. Kinda reminds me of what a “table” beer should be, lots of balance.
