Dude, you got watermelon in my beer.

Posted on June 3, 2007

As a home brewer, I have made a few fruit flavored beers in the past. They usually make a good summer beer, as they are lighter than my usual “rich-dark-chewy-bring-a-fork” beers. Most of them seem to lack any real complexity, but they’re just fine for drinking out on the back deck.

However, I may have to change my opinion after sampling William’s Brewing’s “Watermelon Wheat” beer. Oh my great googly moogly! This is very fine stuff. I am not even sure what made me try it, but I was intrigued by the combination. It’s light with a hint of sweetness and a really gorgeous aroma.

I think the next beer party will need to be sooner than I thought. Otherwise Kim and I might just drink this one ourselves.
