Golden Road Melon Cart Wheat Ale
Melon Cart Wheat Ale. Golden Road Brewing. Los Angeles, CA.
“A watermelon wheat ale with notes of honeydew and cantaloupe.”
Light straw and hazy. Big foamy head with tight lacing.
This beer trickeled down the can and made a mess during the pour, but it’s just a normal can, so it must have been my error.
It smells interesting during the pour. Vivid melon. Cantaloupe.
I say “oh my goodness. Come taste this.”
It’s yummy and not too sweet, only a little bitter. I forgot this is a wheat beer — it’s disguised a lot by the fruit, but I can taste it.
Every time I come back to the glass I like it more.
Aimee says “when I drink that, I feel happy”.
I am grateful to experience something new today. This is quite a mellow and pleasing flavor.
Most novel beers with adjuncts are not successful experiments, but this is a great discovery.
We drink through this one fast.
