Details

Like something out of Doctor Seuss, you might imagine Green Zebra to be found alongside green eggs and ham (Sam I Am). This beer lives and breathes a sense of wacky adventure, a certain devil-may-care attitude and the pursuit of the perfect union between sweet and sour. Founders Brewing Co are known for pushing the boat out and this beer is no exception. The smell is all gose funkiness, it’s syrupy and you’d expect it to be cloyingly sweet, but it’s not. The syrupy sweetness is perfectly balanced by the salty sourness and the watermelon dances in the background. Serve ice cold on a hot day, this is a fiesta beer, one to drink at a celebration and one that would be at home in any number of oddball novels.

Brewery Info

Originally brewing middle-of-the-road beers for a wide and not-terribly-engaged audience, Founders realised that they’d have to change if they wanted to survive. They started making bold and complex beers instead, launching themselves to craft beer fame.

From coffee-infused Breakfast Stout, bourbon barrel-aged Backwoods Bastard and a 15% barleywine called Bolt Cutter, you can’t accuse Founders of being dull. As well as brews that push the boundaries, their lower abv. range is a more accessible introduction and includes the excellent All Day IPA.

Best Beer Ever.

I don't want to seem melodramatic, but this is the best beer I have ever tasted. In fact, it may be the best drink I have ever had period. I wasn't expecting much from something marked as being made with watermelon and sea-salt, but good grief it delivers a really really great taste. Crisp, not overly fruity, but with the watermelon hints and a lovely sourness, not too sour nor bitter. Just perfect. I really hope it appears again in 2019, I am definitely a BIG fan.

Strong fruity flavours with a mild sweetness that becomes salty and dry like a crisp cider. Would definitely buy again

Has a golden clear appearance with a fast diminishing head. Medium sour with a taste akin to a medium sweet cider. Very drinkable with massives of fruity flavour.
