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 (a slight hint) 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 1.042.  Ease of brewing: Beginner

Not quite right
Few years back I couldn't make enough of this kit.  People just loved it!  Then they took it off market for a year or two and this is the first I have seen it back so I bought it up quick.  I didn't get the same response.  Most said it didn't really taste like watermelon.  Now it is possible it was in my fermentation that tossed it off but I do use a chamber and control my temps.  I had some say it tasted like Cotton Candy, others said they tasted a little bubble gum, nobody said they could taste watermelon.

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!

Can I keg this beer? Will the flavor hold?
Yes, kegging works well with this light wheat beer.
