Hell or High Watermelon Wheat by 21st Amendment is a 4.9% ABV Wheat Ale brewed with watermelons
Unfiltered, American-style wheat beer. Brewed with 400 pounds of fresh watermelons.
This beer was a gift by one of my friends who went down to Lake Tahoe in Nevada. I have never heard of a wheat beer made with watermelon. I have tried this one before but this is the first I give it a shot a review.
Aromas are of wheat bread, cereal, pilsner grains, coriander, hint of plant and watermelon
The flavors are of wheat, cereal grains, coriander, watermelon notes, biscuit bread, honey, citrus, lemon and almost like red bean paste notes
The after taste is malty, grainy and sweet. The beer is refreshing though and easy to drink.
Overall it was a decent beer. Seems closer to a lager with watermelon flavor. Nothing complex or overpowering. This is probably worth trying once.
Leinenkugel’s Sunset Wheat by Jacob Leinenkugel brewing is a 4.9% Witbier (Belgian Style Wheat Ale)
If you’ve ever experienced a Northwoods sunset, you know it’s a moment unlike any other. So instead of putting it into words, we captured the Northwoods’ finest moment in every batch of our all-new Leinenkugel’s Sunset Wheat. Brewed with malted wheat, Cluster hops and natural coriander, Sunset Wheat has a soothing taste that will leave you speechless. It’s like your very own sunset in a bottle.
I’ve tried this beer several times and every time I try it it reminds me of one thing… Fruity Pebbles cereal. The fragrance is simply fruit pebbles. Citrus, blueberries, raspberries, cherries, coriander, wheat cereal and flowers somewhat. The flavors are of ….you guessed it.. fruity pebbles cereal. Some light flavors of lemon, orange, blueberry, grape, cherry, raspberry, wheat bread, coriander spice and grain cereal. There is this tiny off putting fruity alcohol in the after taste but it doesn’t detract too much from the cereal and fruity pebbles. A pretty good beer to try if you are into sweet fruit beers or just fruity pebbles in general. Crisp and refreshing for like a summer type of beer.
All I have to say about this beer is…FRUITY PEBBLES IN A BOTTLE!!. The extra sweetness of the beer and flavor complexity make the unfiltered wheat and coriander taste just like fruity pebbles. A must try !!
