Game Day Beer Review: 21st Amendment Brewing Hell or High Watermelon Wheat Fruit Ale

(4.90% ABV) Poured from a can at a private club in northern New Jersey, in the exclusive town of North Caldwell, at a place featuring a luxurious, dark-paneled bar.  The beer was poured into a pint glass. Hell or High Watermelon appeared a murky yellow/gold color, with a blazing white head, as pictured above.

The beer smelled of wheat, yeast and some undetermined spices on the nose.

Unlike most watermelon beers, this one did not lead with its fruit -- it was all wheat on the initial tasting. The watermelon flavor is very subtle, and only comes through at the end.  We'll drink to summer with this one: B
