Description  more details

Unlike the cold of Winter which tends to increase one's appreciation of strong, full-flavored beers, the heat of Summer is more conducive to a refreshing beer with a lower alcohol content. With this in mind, we have developed William's Watermelon Ale, a wheat beer accented with a touch of natural watermelon flavor. This is a light wheat beer (alcohol about 3.8%) with a touch of natural watermelon flavor added just before bottling. Ideal for Summer drinking, especially if served in a tall glass and garnished with a slice of watermelon. Alcohol: 3.8%, IBU's 25.

Includes 6 pounds of our blended wheat malt extract (60% wheat and 40% pale malt), flavoring hops, natural watermelon flavoring, liquid wheat yeast, and corn sugar for carbonation. Makes 5 gallons with a starting gravity of at least 1.040.  Ease of brewing: Beginner

Turned out very well for the first time. Put over ice and it is like a watermelon wine. My wife just love it. Great summer time drink. Very light and easy to drink

add ice and it like a wine cooler
Not a bad tasting beer with a mild watermelon flavor, great in summer to be in a tube in the pool and have one of these in hand. More like a wine cooler we add ice and like it that way best.

Watermelon Wheat
It was strong in the watermelon flavor, but not too sweet. It was good.

Great Beer!
Another flawless beer from William's. We did experience quite the active fermentation and feared a potentially contaminated batch due to the multiple air lock cleanups, etc but it calmed down after 3 days or so. The effort was worth it; one of my daughter's friends works at a national pub chain that specializes in local draft brews and she said they could sell this as-is. Just the right amount of watermelon character. Definitely give this one a try!

Watermelon Ale
I don't usually brew a beer recipe more than once but this one is the exception. Beer is crisp and refreshing with just a hint of the watermelon. All my friends can't wait to drink this one on a hot summer day.
