Watermelon Wheat

21st Amendment Brewery
San Francisco, CA

Style: Wheat
ABV: 5.0%

Jill’s Rating:

Pair With:
A whiff of watermelon excites your palate as you take a sip of this wheat beer … only to find that it doesn’t really have a watermelon taste at all. This fruit beer lover was disappointed by the hype around this brew, although the wheat beer itself was nicely golden and light on the hops, making it a decent option for the drinker who wants a fruit beer without it tasting too fruity. 21st Amendment claims to put up to 500 pounds of watermelon in each batch. Maybe next time they should think about adding 1000.
