a collaboration with a mexican brewery called primus, who i have not heard of before, this is an agua fresca inspired ale, brewed with hibiscus and watermelon and agave and lime and maybe some other ingredients that would work with these. its a hazy pink brew with very little head on it but a nice bright glow, clearly colored by the hibiscus. the aroma is interesting, lots of fresh lime zest here, its quenching and interesting to me, a little sweet with the watermelon, but it smells natural enough, robust as it all is together. the flavor starts a bit sweet both from the fruit and the agave. i have not had a ton of agua fresca in my life, so i dont know if agave is usually part of it, but i would think this would be quite a bit more refreshing without that, or at least if it were fermented out. the sweetness is a nice vehicle for the fruit though, lots of watermelon and lime all the way through this and not too much perfume from the hibiscus, thankfully well restrained. more body than i expected too for what it is, and less carbonation than i think this should have, but i like the idea and i like the flavors and how they come together here. nice to see something new and good from new belgium, a really neat collaboration this turned out to be!
