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.

Aroma really has a nice tropical, citrusy smell to it....a hint of sweetness there as well. Smells like an IPA to be quite honest.

Taste has a really nice citrusy flavor to it, but not overly bitter. It's a punch in the mouth for sure, but in a good way. It has a great soft, semi-sweet wheat character to it on the finish that really makes this a beer of two phases....brilliantly citrusy, then sweet and full of wheat. Yum. A great example of a hoppy wheat beer.

A: Light golden with a liarge bright white head and a ton of carbonation coming up from the bottom.

S: Fresh pine, orange and grapefruit biting at the edges. A little pineapple and mango sweetness with that classic wheat funk coming near the end.

T: The wheat hits the front of your tongue right away. pine follows it before a citrus explosion on the middle mouth. Puckering lemon, oranges and grapefruit. the finish is quick and semi dry. a hint of herbs.

M: Very refreshing and light. very carbonated.

O: Very impressed here. THis is a beer that gets better every time i have it. You can session this or just drink one slowly. good play between the hop and the wheat. /93

Appearance - Golden orange color with a thick head that dissipates quickly.

Smell - Strong scents of citrus. Smooth notes of grapefruit and orange.

Taste - Strong, hoppy IPA qualities mixed with a wheat ale. The punch of citrus throughout really adds to this beer and makes it unique.

Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation. Great hop finish. Easy to drink... a great summer beer.

Overall - This is one of my favorite beers, and has turned into a "daily drinker" that I try to always keep in the fridge. Yet another incredible beer from Three Floyds.

Pours an amber golden, slightly hazy, with a fine white head that retains indefinitely at a couple millimeters of thickness.

Smells of fresh pine and sweet, citrusy grapefruit hops.

Piney floral hop flavor followed by some grapefruit citrus and a hint of honey accompanied with a dry malty finish.

Medium body with a tingle of carbonation on the tip of the tongue.

A pretty stellar ale, great smell and very good flavor. Very impressive and enjoyable. Definitely worth trying.

Got a pint at the brewpub a few weeks ago. This is from notes.

Clear light orange, wispy shortlived head drapes the pint glass in a layer of foam. Huge citrus and wheat crispness in the in the nose. Delicate grapefruit and lime in the first sip. Building bitterness and sweet, crisp malt meld together flawlessly. Lemon rind shows with warmth. Light mouthfeel with spritz y effervescence. The finish is moderately bitter and very long lasting.

This is the best American wheat beer Ive ever had. So much sumptuous malt and hop flavor, with a pronounced hoppiness. Incredible stuff. Stupidly quaffable and a must try before you die beer for any craft beer lover.

Appearance - golden orange color that pour a crisp head that left my pour quickly.

Smell - grapefruit and citrus upfront with some malt wheat flavors on the back end

Taste - mildy bitter and easy to drink, but missing a punch of something just a light hoppy beer for me

Mouthfeel - extremely easy to drink, crisp, leaves a slight bitter flavor on your tongue

Overall - great beer to have a few of and easy to drink. Not the best wheat/ pale I have had.

Poured Gumballhead into a Belgian Tulip.

A - Pours a nice golden orange color with a finger of white head.

S - Getting some tropical citrus, smooth orange notes.

T - It has some IPA qualities. Citrus, some bitter hops, smooth wheat mid palate.

M - Smooth session beer here. Nice light to medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation. A very good summer beer for sure.

O - Overall, a good beer, I think I thought this one was going to wow me. It didn't, its just a good beer to sit back drink one or six of. Cheers !

I've had this on-tap before in the past, but this is the first time having it bottled. 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a very light golden; slight haze; fluffy white head that fades but leaves great retention and lacing. There's a nice amount of grapefruit and lemon zest found in the nose, followed by more citrus notes. There are malts in the mix as well. The wheat is there in the flavors and aromas, but they don't seem to dominate. The flavors are extremely crisp and refreshing. Tons of lemon and orange. There's a nice sharp bitterness to this one, but nothing overwhelming. Mouthfeel is on the fuller side of light-bodied; active carbonation; smooth and easy drinking. This is a wonderful beer to enjoy outside while trying to beat the heat.

This is a very good beer. It's not too flashy, but it's unique enough.

This is the weaker lil' bro of Zombie Dust and I love it! Basically Zombie Dust light. The artwork is so raw it's fantastic. Did a child or mental patient design it, not an insult as I'm pretty much both. Very fun to track down in stores as well. This little brewery is something else. Yay-Yuhh!!!

Pours a nice clear golden color with one finger white head. Good lacing. Smell is citrus up front, much more like an IPA than a wheat. The taste follows the nose - sweet citrus with a very refreshing hefeweizen-like lemony finish. Light bodied and lightly carbonated, very refreshing. Overall an outstanding American wheat, extremely well balanced. Great job FFF!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Poured for a bottle into my OMB tulip. No date found.

A - Poured a nice golden straw color with about a one finger head on top. The head faded slowly leaving a light lacing around the glass.

S - Aroma is not what you would typically expect from an "American pale wheat ale." Not too surprising- it's Three Floyds! I noticed a really nice hop presence; grapefruit, pineapple, mango, pine and some light wheat sweetness.

T - Each sip reveals something different with this beer. The wheat malt hit my tongue right away. A few sips later the hops arrive on the scene. As I finish the beer the tropical hops complete each sip cleanly. The hop notes are quite citrusy and piney. I'm impressed with the rebelliousness of this "wheat" beer.

M - Mouthfeel is light, very nicely done for a pale wheat, with a great hop finish. I would like there to be a bit more wheatiness to it.

O - I really enjoyed this one. Truth be told, it was actually difficult not to gulp this one down. Another fantastic, truly unique beer for Three Floyds.

Bought from FFF brewpub in IN. Interesting. Citrus-y. Mouthfeel is super light but then it takes you on a ride for an uncommon experience. Can't place the aftertaste. Almost dries out your mouth but has a dry fruity follow-up. It's tough to know if I would peg this as a wheat without knowing it was such.

Can't wait to bring more back.

poured from bottle into 3FFF teku glass
kind of an orange color with small head
smell is nice fruity/hop smell to it
taste is very similar to the smell with a citrus type of possible lemon
this is a crisp very easy drinker with nice hop bite to it but not overpowering
would definitely get again perfect for a session type beer or while you are BBQ

Big thanks to beersndrums for this one!

12 oz bottle poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass at fridge-cellar temperature.

L – Slightly hazy pale gold color with a 2-finger very bubbly, white head. Nice retention but not too much lacing. With only a little bit of haze, a lot of bubbles can be visualized.

S – A lot of fruity hops with orange, grapefruit, and maybe pineapple notes and a mild sweet wheat presence. Smells really nice.

T – It starts off sweet with grainy, bready wheat malt and fruits like orange, pineapple, and mango. As the taste progresses, mild bitterness washes in, bringing grapefruit hop notes with it, but the sweetness still remains. There may be some peppery yeast coming in at the finish, as well. It’s interesting – this beer has a ton of fruity hop flavor but not a ton of bitterness. I’m not sure how they did it, but it’s very tasty.

S – Light-bodied, great carbonation, a creamy but refreshingly crisp mouthfeel, and a bittersweet, mildly spicy, and dry finish. Fruity hop flavors and a bit of peppery yeast linger for a nice amount of time.

O – This is a very, very well-done beer. It fits the style to a tee, is very tasty, and insanely drinkable. Like I said before, I’m not sure how they fit all the hop aromas and flavors in without giving this thing some inappropriately high bitterness, but it’s good news for everyone that they did. I’ve always been interested in how an American pale wheat ale had such a high score on a site where DIPAs and BA stouts rule the roost and now I know why – it’s simply a great beer. This was my first Three Floyds beer and I’d LOVE to try more. Thank you SO much for the opportunity to try this one, Jared!

"Refreshing American Wheat Beer that doesn't suck". Got this when I went to the brewery because they had just sold-out of Zombie Dust.

A - Light yellow color. Pretty clear with fine bright white head and significant lacing. Seemingly too clear for a wheat.

S - Nice hop aroma with a lemon hint and normal bready wheat character.

T - Great showcase for the Amarillo hop with a lemony, spicy, and faint herbal tone. The beer has a nice wheat flavor in the middle with a slightly tart finish and almost no bitterness. I was expecting there to be more bitterness because of the hop flavor but the beer matches the style well.

M - Lighter mouth-feel. The carbonation also wasn't too strong but the beer still was very well felt on the palate. With a crisp and cleaner finish.

Overall, the best "American" wheat that I've ever had. Great aroma, flavor, feel, appearance, and really takes a mostly plain and yeast dominated style and pumps it up with the hops. The refreshing taste and cleanliness of the beer make it one of the best session beers ever. It's like taking a great pale ale and adding that wheat character but not trying to tone all the flavor down. I would strongly recommend trying this for everyone out there from the elite beer connoisseur to the person that just wants a beer.

Golden color with bright white moderate head. Short retention.

Citrus, green apple, lemon marmalade, cracker.

Citrus, robust hops, wheat bread, resin.

Medium-full bodied, snappy hops, bitter clean finish with some alcohol heat.

Seems to rely heavily on hops to carry the beer. Found it to be fairly one-dimensional.

One of the best beers that I have had in my life. It is a very smooth beer that tastes good as well. I hope everyone gets to try this in their lifetime. It is hard to get as it is rare to see in many liquor stores except for maybe once a month in some. There is a really nice beer bar in my college town that cycles through most of these top 250 beers a lot, but it's still hard to come by.

3.55/5  rDev -15.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours a clear, bright, pure golden color with a 2-finger white finger head. Good retention, resulting in a broken layer of microbubbles across the surface. Lacing is spotty with fair stick.

Smell - Those Amarillo hops shine through with strong proclamation of their presence. Bright citrus with faint notes of mild soap. Wheat comes through faintly.

Taste - Follows the nose, mostly. Bright citrus notes upfront, moderate notes of earthen wheat and a touch of soapiness. Finishes with a mild lemon twang.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium in body, with moderate carbonation. Smooth. Goes down easy. The Kick from the citrus makes it feel more lively than what actually is.

Overall - Honestly, I expected better. This is good; I was expecting excellent. Good balance, but ultimately I felt it too one-dimensional. If I were in the mood for a hoppy wheat, I'd opt for a Lagunitas Lil' Sumpin Sumpin over this. I'm glad I traded for it, but it's unlikely I'd do that again.

Living in PA, I haven't had the chance to try 3F products, so on a recent trip to Chicago I was psyched to finally get the chance. Unfortunately, Gumballhead turned out to be a major disappointment.

It looked fine, but after that, things went downhill. I've rarely encountered such a well-regarded beer with so little aroma or flavor. Frankly, this reminded me more of dishwater than beer. There was a subtle hint of grassiness and a little lemon on the palate, but there was absolutely none of the fabled hop character,. at least that I could detect.

I'd say I had a bad bottle, but this was on tap at a busy restaurant with a beer menu that included only 3 draughts and 3 bottles, so I can't imagine it had been sitting for any extended period of time.

All in all, a bland, boring disappointment of a beer.

Growler filled at Cont. Liquors Ashland, Ky. I usually get awesome fills here, but today I was running short on time and the employee present really isn't experienced enough at this, so we will see. Poured into a nonic pint glass.

A - bright golden with some yellowish tones to it. Head was nice to start but quickly vanished into a small ring of white lace. This small ring left minimal if no stick to the glass.

S - lemony, fruity and somewhat floral hop aroma. Wheat character is faint with a pretty solid FFF style yeast aroma. Peach and marmalade? Maybe as I can hint the peach.

T - more odd ball fruitiness which is refreshing with a big note of lemon with softer notes of a somewhat sour peach. Flavor is slightly sweet though the malt never really gets a firm grip on anything as the hops take over middle to back yet the wheat and yeast do a nice job of keeping the bitterness crisp in the finish. This is definitely a wheat ale inspired by Amarillo hops and has a unique factor going on. Clean and crisp finish.

M - medium bodied and carries a good thickness to it. It's just what you get with a FFF brew. Great ale for summer

O - I've had this from a bottle and this review was taken off the 2nd time I had it from a growler poured fresh. I have to say this pour does not do this ale justice and ill have to track down a few bottles to get the review across. I'm not going to sit here and pound this ale as if I didn't enjoy it nor am I going to rip the girl that did the fill. But I'm not going to pretend like I loved it either bc its one of my go to breweries. This Is a very good pale wheat ale and one of the best. The problem is its a subpar style. It has all the right qualities to being the best pale wheat ale in the world as I'm sure a bottled version or a proper fill would have shined. I'm sure ill re-review this here soon with better results.

Sweet but never too hoppy, Gumball head is a great beer for those who want something full-bodied but don't want too be overwhelmed by hops. It's lighter in color and finishes well. Great on draught and very drinkable. The cool character on the tapper is a nice touch as well.

We landed this beer in a trade. Thanks to my boy Scott for living close to the brewery! If I miss anything from Indiana, it's the brewing companies we had access to. From Upload in the Indianapolis area, to Three Floyds near Chicago, Indiana is filled with some great breweries. This is our last beer from Three Floyds… sad. I do have two more bottles in the fridge thanks to Scott. I hope he is reading… this blog post pretty much makes him famous!

This beer is one of their more popular offerings, and is on tap pretty much everywhere in the Hoosier state. It is a good example of the style the way the style was supposed to be enjoyed. It's loaded with fruit and has a nice spicy finish. This is a great beer. I say that and I pretty much hate wheat beers. If you are ever in the Circle City, order a Gumballhead. You're welcome!

In the Glass: This looks like a typical wheat beer. It does have more carbonation than I remember. Oh, and the head was REALLY thick on this. I blame the travel this bottle had from Indiana. Beer trading has become so fun for us, I sometimes can't control myself. I will take a thick head over a spilt beer. Not much lace here, but the head, as it dwindles, remains thick and somewhat sticky. I could smell this as I was pouring it… let's drink!

Nose: Well, we will smell this first. It does smell like a wheat beer, but there is a subtle spiciness toward the finish. Spice if what I remember about this beer. The last time I had this beer was at Scotty's Brewhouse in Indianapolis. I miss their wings. Man they had good wings. The BBQ are the BOMB! Anyway, back to the beer.

Flavor: I don't like wheat beers, but I would drink this in a heartbeat. It has a nice fruity flavor with a drying finish leading to an almost cracked pepper finish. This does get better as it heats up, but nothing worth waiting for. The low ABV also helps this beer as I could drink a ton of this before I even realized it. Another great lawnmower beer.

Mouthfeel: I do think this beer was affected by travel, but not a bad thing. There are WAY too many bubbles going on here, but as it heats up and as it sits in the glass, the bubbles are backing down. Not much in terms of mouthfeel. Just a nice, cold, wet wheat beer. I would call this more pale than wheat, though. The hops are obvious. I would like to see a Stone Brewing Company take on this beer. They sure do love their hops in California.

Aftertaste: The hops really come out in the finish. They use Amarillo hops in this beer, but that doesn't mean much to me. I should take a class on hops so I know the main differences. I am sure that would help me in my journey to becoming a Certified Cicerone. Anyway, the beer is easy to drink and leaves a much better finish than most wheat beers. Bless you, hops!

I am going to miss you, Three Floyds. Or is it 3 Floyds? If you are ever in Chicago, the brewing company is only 20 minutes outside of the city. It is WELL worth your time. The brewery is small, located in an industrial park, and you would never know a place like this could produce such great beer… but they are worth it. Oh, and Dark Lord. The beer is good, but Dark Lord Day is HUGE. We haven't been, but ask anyone that knows craft beer. I am sure he or she has heard of Dark Lord and/or Dark Lord Day.

Cheers, people!

Serving: 12oz Bottle into pint glass.

A: Very transparent and medium to light gold in color. Medium lacing.

S: First thing that hits you are the hops, followed by a heavy citrus element reminiscent of orange zest and then some mild herbal undertones. Overall it's a spicy, yet very smooth smell.

T: The sweet, grassy taste of the beer is well balanced with the bitterness from the hops. Citrus is again present here as well, with the wheat element of the beer being somewhat overpowered by the hops. Clean, dry finish with some lingering citrus and bitterness.

M: Medium-light, Carbonation is spot on for my tastes, which may make it slightly flat for others as I prefer less carbonation. Overall it works well with the flavors of the beer.

O: Overall another great beer from 3 Floyds, and so far my favorite APWA...definitely a great beer to sit down with on a spring day or summer night. Reviewing this beer on it's own, however it seemed to pair quite well with a chicken Caesar salad last night.

Served into a Sam Smith pint glass. A dear friend turned me onto this one.

A- never seen such a clear wheat ale. Its color displays its crispness.

S - like fresh grapefruit rind, very clean and inviting.

T - just like the smell, very fresh and drinkable. Maybe too drinkable. Could get a guy in trouble.

M- medium to light. Clean and refreshing.

O - gotta go get some to stock up for summer. Its our first 90 degree day in SW Ohio and Gumballhead is the perfect remedy.
