Taking on summer head first and just like a pro, Evil Twin brewers whip up the perfect dog days defeat with a sour German styled ale with a generous soaking of watermelon juice.

Pale gold and with hardly any suggestion of red fruit in sight, Watermelon Spritzer graces the nose with a radiant, vibrant and highly aromatic perfume of the finest watermelon imaginable, along with hints of white wine, cider and green fruit. With a gentle drift of sea air, the nose soon gives way to a brisk sweetness of light taffy, honey and agave.

Then as the ale washes the middle palate, a huge burst of watermelon comes with the fruity juiciness of the red fruit candy, but without its sweetness. Instead, a clean and acidic flavor of crabapple, gooseberry, white grape, lime and lemon transforms the watermelon into a sour and pickled rind episode. Without much sweetness, the light sourdough maltiness fuses with a rounded salinity to amplify the overall character of watermelon in the absence of much sweetness.

Light bodied and insistent upon holding onto a mild bready creaminess, the beer's overall character is that of an expressively carbonated watermelon cider or wine, much like a fine sangria or simple cocktail. As a perfect thirst quencher, this highly refreshing, highly drinkable ale wins the war of summer.
