Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly Heavy Melon

Hot summer nights, jam out to the cooling waves of Heavy Melon Ale, our newest seasonal track. Brewed with juicy watermelon and zesty lime peel, this crushable ale rips with a blast of melon notes. Ripened fruit aromas of melon, papaya and citrus climax with an enticing aroma, and set up an invigorating wash of fruity sweetness, grassy bitterness and the slightest touch of tartness. Super crisp and refreshing from start to finish, Heavy Melon Ale shreds through the summer heat.

Honestly, this isn't nearly as bad as the scores and reviews indicate. It's enjoyable and could definitely taste worse. And I'm drinking it well past the best by date. Never let it get warm but it's tasty if it's cold...and if it's free.

Beer pours the typical golden color with a small white head. The smell is melon with some other weird smell. The flavor does have some watermelon, cucumber and lime but it's the rind of the watermelon is what over powers the flavor. Like most New Belgium beers I've had not super impressive.
