Never expected a flavor like this. MELONS, fresh Melons! Well balanced and a great summer beverage. If summer ever gets here.

From the 650 ml. bottle. 2015 batch. Sampled on July 8, 2015 in 80 degree weather.

It pours a handsome looking golden color with with a foamy cream-colored head.

The aroma is more fruit forward than malt forward but both can be found. Lots of melon and a modest honey sweetness. Some vague spice.

The body is very smooth but its texture is in the light to medium range.

A mild roasted malt sweetness to start but it does not take long for thew cantaloupe and honey flavors to emerge until they climax with a mildly bitter end. A pretty decent warm weather beer.

Bottle from the Drinkery Derry.
Slightly hazy light golden color with a smallish white head. Huge melon on the nose with a sweet bready maltiness and hints of earthy hop aroma to counter. The flavor is big melon as well and bit of a bitter toffee that kind of clashes with the other flavors a bit too much. Medium body with a moderate carbonation. I really dug the melon aroma, but felt the malt was a bit too strong in the flavor to let the fruit shine through. Dial back the crystal malt a bit and this would be fantastic.
