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.

Poured from a 12oz bottle to a Dogfish Head Snifter.

Color: Hazy gold with an awesome white head.

Smell: Hops, wheat and citrus.

Taste: Citrus, hops, wheat with a nice kick on the end.

Mouthfeel: Lots of carbonation! Medium coarse and slightly dry.

Overall: The combination in this brew is great. I love the whole complex of the ingredients. Cheers!
