River Horse Wuddermelon Kolsch

Val read on Facebook awhile back that this was released on draft at the brewery. We decided to take a trip out so I could give it a shot. It’s been a few years since the brewery moved to my town and the space is awesome. They do a lot of cool events, especially the craft fairs, that we find ourselves going to for a few hours. Even when nothing is going on, the tasting room is usually quiet and comfortable.

ABV: 4.1%

Style: Kolsch

Trivia: This beer is to benefit the Philadelphia Zoo, which I’ve never been to before.

Random: One of my biggest pet peeves is when people intentionally misspell words to be cheeky. Not my thing.

The beer poured with a half a finger of off white head. It dissipated slowly and still managed to leave some lacing on my fancy plastic cup. The body was cloudy and bright orange. There was a lot of carbonation visible. The nose had notes of watermelon Italian ice and wheat. The taste was much of the same. It was all of the good parts of a watermelon ice with some wheat as well. The yeast came through next with a touch of mineral water. The body was thin and had a lot of carbonation. The finish was quick with watermelon. The cup cost me $3 at the brewery, which broke down to $.25 per ounce. I don’t know if it’s because I had this while it was hot out, but it just hit the spot for me and I really enjoyed it. This could easily be a Summer go to for me.
