Notes

NOTE: Watermelon is not added during boil. It is added directly to primary before pitching yeast.

This golden twist on a traditional hefeweizen has a late honey addition for a nice bit of aroma and plenty of fresh watermelon for flavor and to keep this a nice cool addition to any hot summer day.
