Unique to Cape May Brewing Company, this wheat ber is steped with fresh watermelons from Beach Plum Farm in West Cape May. We used Honeyheart, Tiger Baby and Jubilee watermelons to get that entire flavor. No extracts or additives here!

Sample at brewery. Listed as 5.5% on board. Pours hazy yellowish/gold with a frothy white head. Fresh watermelon, wheat twang, and some honeydew to the nose. The flavor is fresh melon, light candy, yeasty zing, and finishing full. Nice wheat beer base and the addition of fresh watermelons makes this enjoyable. Different but good.

Growler that was opened approximately 20 hours previously. Poured a hazy gold body with hardly any head (older growler so that would explain that). The aroma needed to warm up some but once it did there was light watermelon sweetness, nutt shells, peanuts, and dry toast. Medium bodied with a dry finish and god carbonation, sort of dry for the sweet aroma/flavor. Flavor had lots of watermelon coming through to the point you would almost think that it was an adjunct and not resh watermelon, not in a bad way but in a scratch your head way like how much watermelon did they need to use, peanutts, nutt shells and dry toast. Another solid beer that I’m sure would probably be even better with a fresher example and not a previously opened growler.
