Review – 21st Amendment Brewery Hell or High Watermelon wheat beer

21 Jul

I have become obsessed with wheat beers. Maybe it’s because it’s summer, maybe it’s because i’ve become a beer snob since we started going to the bar/6 pack shop up the street from our house that has over 13oo beers (36 of which are also on draft with an additional 10 to be added) so I get to get away from your standard variety of beer offerings and branch out to try many new things!

They had posted they were going to have their Wednesday special beer to try was a Watermelon Wheat beer. I was intrigued. Watermelon you say? Wheat beer? Watermelon + Wheat beer? I am game. The husband and I went and it was summertime in a glass. Most summer beers have a citrus flavor – lemon, lime or orange. These are good, don’t get me wrong. However this beer was something unique. It has a nice smooth flavor without any of that bitter hop aftertaste. It’s crisp and refreshing. You can taste the watermelon. It’s not overpowering but it is most certainly present. And here is the kicker – this beer comes in a CAN! And it’s still good. No metallic can taste that some beers can get. I personally rate it 5 stars. It’s nice to have a beer that differs from the usual summertime offerings.

The 21st Amendment Brewery is based in San Francisco (sigh). I want to go there. I want to do keg stands with this beer. They do of course have other beers, but currently my love affair is way to intense with this particular version of their beer to give any others a try just yet.

If you can get your hands on a can of this, certainly give it a try. I’m trying to locate a case to keep and enjoy throughout the rest of the summer when the urge strikes. If you go to their website, they have a vendor locator that you can search for someone near you!

Watermelon Wheat beer - summer in a glass. or can. whichever you prefer.
