What a great idea! Nothing beats the heat like a slice of watermelon! And as a matter of fact (change the voice in your head to sound like Cliff Claven) it’s a little known fact that watermelon juice is uuuuuuh, frequently enjoyed by many cultures, especially in hotter climates there, Norm!
Back to your normal voice now.
In fact while I was in Malaysia it is served in huge 2-liter glasses, and like this beer, it goes down really easy.
These are really nicely designed bottles and labels, and the beer is not terrible either.
I like the fruity character of this beer, but found it to be lacking in body.
Props for putting out something different, and despite my absolute hatred of flavoured beers, I think this is a good effort that will hopefully become more refined in the future.
If you are to try this, it is best served very cold.
GIB did a really great job taking “Fraser Valley Raspberries” and adding it to a nice clean-tasting ale to make a beer that tastes like a raspberry beer, eh.. (The kind you find in a second hand store).
It is really pink when you pour it, and still pink in the glass. The head and body are really full. The raspberry taste is obvious, but not so overwhelming. For my liking the flavor is not subtle enough, giving me the impression that it is a novelty beer that won’t be around for long…
In the meantime I would try this one out on a sunny day, cold, preferably in the early afternoon:)
