Paletas Watermelon | 5 Rabbit Cervecería
Style: Wheat Beer - American Pale Wheat
Description: What captures the fun of summer better than the ding-ding-ding of the popsicle cart and the cool rush of fruity fun? Paletas! And the versions most popular in the Latin community are made with frozen fruit juice in a wide variety of tropical flavors. We though this would be a perfet inspiration for a line of summer beers. But these are not kiddie treats. In addition to pure, high-quality fruit pulp, we add a number of delicious spices and other flavors that build on the fruits, adding complexity and depth. They’re still a lot of fun and amzazingly quaffable at only 3.5% vol. A large proportion of wheat gives them a smooth, creamy mouth-feel. There’s really never been anything like them. Paletas are meant as summer refreshers—a more sophisticated alternative to one-dimensional shandies and radlers. We’re brewing them as a series, each one different, and when one’s gone, it’s gone. We brew the next one. At the end of summer, they vanish until next year. We hope never to repeat ourselves. Paletas No. 2 was brewed with fresh watermelon, and balanced with Tasmanian pepperberry, pink peppercorns, and local honey. Este año produjimos dos diferentes paletas: guayaba y sandía. El próximo año esperamos producir muchas más de la serie, buscando siempre frutas o flores interesantes.
