Watermelon Ale
 
I know what you all are thinking, but I was in Bostin in August and went to the Boston Beer Works, right across from Fenway, and they had a Watermelon Ale on tap that was unbelievable on a 90 degree day. Very light and crisp with just a hint of watermelon. Any have a recipe for something like this??

I do a watermelon wheat that gets rave reviews from my friends. Click the link in my sig....all you do is add watermelon juice to the secondary...it is awesome.

Dude has a watermelon wheat recipe here somewhere. It's quite good

Not too sweet is it? The ale I had, had just a hint. They actually served it up with a little watermelon slice on the slice. Kinda girlish, but no s%i$, it could have been one of the most refreshing beers I ever had!!

It's just a hint. In fact, most people that tried it at my house didn't know what it was until I told them. It was one of the most popular beers I've ever made and I'll definitely be making it again this summer.

Whenever there is a Watermelon Wheat at a brewers fest up here, it goes fast. 21st Amendment & Point Blank, both have good ones.

What few recipes I've seen have been nothing more than a wheat with watermelon added late in the fermentation or in a secondary.

So for a beginner brewer I could just get a either a wheat or honey wheat kit and add 2 cups of watermelon juice into the secondary???

Williams' Brewing has a Watermelon Ale kit. I think it's a wheat beer to begin with.
