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.

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.

Serving type: on-tap
