Dayton brewery is ‘voyaging through the watermelon patch’ for their newest reveal

Warped Wing Brewery can hardly contain their excitement about their latest reveal. 

On Thursday, June 14th, the Dayton brewery will launch its first gose, Magic Melon, and it’s straight from the watermelon patch.

A gose is an old German beer style from Leipzig. Gose is an unfiltered wheat beer made with 50 to 60 percent malted wheat, which creates a cloudy yellow color and provides a refreshing crispness and twang, according to beeradvocate.com.

“Look deep into the bottle. Then take a fantastic voyage through the watermelon patch,” Warped Wing wrote in a Facebook post. “Stop and smell hypnotic aromas of fresh sliced watermelon. Then take an offbeat path into a funky place of sweet, sour and salty. End on a far out tart groove. We see Magic Melon Gose in your future.”
Magic Melon will be available on draft, as well as on sale in 500 mL bottles. The gose is 4.7% ABV.
