Brouhaha first made this beer for GABS in 2019, but this was always a recipe worth returning to.
At a glance, it looks like a lager – pale gold and crystal clear – and may have you expecting a beer that's low on flavour. But bring it to your face and this is sharp and sour and big ol’ fruit right from the get go.
The lime wants to take the lead here, and it almost manages to dominate as it hits like a straight shot of Bickford’s Lime Juice Cordial.† But the sweet watermelon shows in the aroma upfront, and returns when you’re halfway down the glass and have become accustomed to the zesty tartness.
From the first sip of this Watermelon & Lime Sour, your slumped shoulders will perk up as you get a slap of surprise on your tongue. Your mind is distracted from any busy thoughts as they're replaced with: "Ooh, that's interesting!”
†If you’ve never tried a straight shot of Bickford’s Lime Juice Cordial, did you even have a childhood?
