When we get fruity, we like you to know we’re getting fruity. Not a hint of fruit, we want you to feel the fruit, embrace the fruit, know that you’re drinking that fruit, so towards the end of each summer we get our fruit on and chop up over 1800 pounds of fresh off the vine watermelons. An all day affair, tying up our production team slicing and juicing two pallets worth of melons, we feel the effort is well worth it - allowing us the opportunity to keep using the real thing. With such a soft and delicate profile, we wait until fermentation has completed before adding the juiced fruit so only a minor secondary fermentation occurs because of the fruit. Refreshing, juicy, and fresh, Watermelon Wheat doesn’t come around for long, brewing only a small batch at watermelon’s peak season, so drink up the fruits of our labor.

Had this on a hot day. Smooth to drink. Nice aftertaste. Slight watermelon taste. Enjoyable. Served the purpose. I would drink again if readily available but I would not go in search of it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
