21st Amendment Hell or High Watermelon Wheat Ale

can and glassAppearance:

The beer pours a light straw color with an exceptionally large new-snow white head.


Smell is nothing impressive or remarkable. Smells like an ale with some hops and some malts. No discernible watermelon scent.


I served this really cold and it tasted pretty good.  Wheat up front for sure with watermelon on in sip sacthe back. Not too strong at all (as I was fearing) but the fruit is definitely there.  Not a fake candy watermelon, either, but the real watermelon flavor that’s delicious and crisp.  Just like the real fruit is largely water, this trait is present in the beer. Tastes like a watered down wheat. Refreshing, just watery.

Very little carbonation was present, which was surprising, considering the size of the head.


Picked up a 4 pack of cans at Trader Joe’s for $5 or so.  ABC is 4.9% ABV.  Brewed by 21st Amendment Brewery in San Francisco.


Certainly not a complex beer, but if you bought a 4 pack of watermelon beer at TJ’s expecting otherwise, it’s yer own dang fault. This is not a highly crafted beer, but it’s certainly refreshing. Yeah, it’s gimmicky, but it’s well worth a few bucks to cool you down on a hot day.
