Beer Review: New Belgium Juicy Watermelon | A Refreshing Treat? Let's See

From New Belgium Brewing Company comes the Juicy Watermelon, watermelon lime ale designed to quench your thirst during summer. So I decided to pick this one up for this latest craft beer review and see what it had to offer. Now mind you, although I am not the biggest fan of fruit beer types but I have found some that I have enjoyed and figured why not give this beer a shot. This ale beer comes in with a beer alcohol content of 5% ABV and an IBU level of 7, and uses 2 malts (Pale and Caramel-80) and one hop (Nugget). The yeast is ale yeast and then watermelon and lime peel are added as well for the flavoring.

As far as my look at the beer then you can pick up a lot of those details here in my YouTube video as I am not trying to play my own spoiler, but I did find there to be a little to be desired with this craft beer. New Belgium is a fine craft brewery and for me, this one seemed to be off the mark a bit for what I usually expect. But, check out my video here and let me know what you think if you have had this brew from them. As far as a rating, this one ended up yielding 2.25 out of 5 from me…whoops, is that spoiler alert?

Cheers my friends, and keep drinking those good craft beers!
