450 North has delivered another revelatory slushy-inspired fruited sour with their SLUSHY XL Watermelon Cherry. This beer is like sipping on an alcoholic version of those nostalgic watermelon-cherry slushie drinks from childhood. It packs unreal amounts of authentic fruit flavor into an outrageously crushable package.

The pour yields a vibrant reddish-pink hue with fuchsia highlights and a frothy pink head. The aroma wafts intoxicating notes of fresh watermelon, tart cherry candy, sweet raspberry, and tangy fruity acidity. It smells like a melted watermelon-cherry popsicle.

Taking a sip, you’re transported directly to sunny childhood memories at the neighborhood pool or county fair. A wave of juicy watermelon and puckering cherry flavors coats the palate with laser-like accuracy. Notes of raspberry syrup and vanilla ice cream add even more nostalgic flair. The sour base provides the perfect zingy acidity to balance the sweet, fruity notes.

While massively fruit-forward, SLUSHY XL Watermelon Cherry maintains an insanely crushable drinkability thanks to the bright acidity and effervescent mouthfeel. It’s luscious and creamy, perfectly mimicking a half-melted slushy drink without being cloying or syrupy.

450 North’s slushy series beers continue to be world-class in drinkability and flavor replication. SLUSHY XL Watermelon Cherry is a flavor bomb of nostalgia, packing the sweet-tart goodness of those beloved slushie drinks into a fun, vibrant adult beverage. It’s the ideal summer crusher.
