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.

Pretty much a nice golden wheat color, with a poor head and minimal lacing. The color is wonderful though like a rich golden yellow. The aroma is fruity and citrusy, a nice balanced burst of hops, not to much. Bitter hoppiness up front, with great citrus and grapefruit quality following in the wake. A very clear presence of wheat with its distinct cracker like flavor and mouthfeel. Fluffy mouthfeel, light but some of that resin hop mouthfeel quality. If I had access to this beer I'd drink it all the time.
