Full Sail is on a roll with its Session series. After the recent releases of Sesión Cerveza Mexican Style Lager and Session Black Cherry Black, the Hood River brewery is releasing Session Watermelon Wheat just in time for summer.
Sadly, I'm one of the 14 people walking this planet who don't like watermelon. But for the rest of you, I expect you'll enjoy this limited release that is available now through August. For more details, check out Full Sail's news release below.
Session Watermelon Wheat Ale Gives Watermelons the Respect They DeserveThis crisp, refreshing beer is a true slice of summerHood River, Oregon – May 17, 2017 – Because there’s no such thing as “beermelon,” Full Sail Brewing Co. has invented the next best thing – new Session Watermelon Wheat Ale. For years, watermelons have been slammed with sledgehammers, launched from catapults, and worn as helmets. We’re giving watermelons the respect they deserve. Session Watermelon Wheat is brewed with watermelon for a crisp, refreshing beer that smells and tastes like a slice of summer. Respect at last!A refreshing wheat beer with an aroma of fresh watermelon, Session Watermelon Wheat offers a medium malt body with subtly sweet watermelon flavor and a crisp wheat finish. “Spring is here, with summer soon to follow,” says Full Sail Brewmaster Jim Kelter. “While the availability of beer knows no season, watermelon of course is another thing. Beer and watermelon, two quintessential summer pleasures, are paired here in Session Watermelon Wheat.”Session Watermelon Wheat pours a deep gold with a white lacy head and a slightly floral aroma. Brewed with 2-row Northwest Pale, Malted Wheat, and Unmalted Wheat, Hallertauer and Crystal hops, and a hint of fresh watermelon flavor, Watermelon Wheat is a refreshing brew for the blue-sky days of spring and summer drinking.When Full Sail launched the Session brand 12 years ago, it quickly became the hottest new craft-beer brand on the market, which has since brought home more than 100 medals, including 40 golds. Session’s not a micro, a macro, or an import, but in a way it’s a little bit of each. You see, virtually everyone who likes beer likes Session. It’s a brand that’s accessible without being ordinary. Totally drinkable, but never at the expense of character. And now in time for summer, there’s Session Watermelon Wheat Ale. Available in the Session Series, May through August, in 12-packs and on draft. Open a bottle of fine vine, and get your Sesh on. 5.4% ABV, 23 IBUs.About Full Sail Brewing CompanyPerched on a bluff in Hood River, Oregon, overlooking the mighty Columbia River’s epic wind and kite surfing and the snow-capped volcanic peaks of Mt.
