This is strangely good. It is light....but has a lot of flavor. Also, unlike other fruited beers thes one actually retains the essence of what it is trying to portray: melon. This is a great summer-ish beer. I do think that with this beer....one would be enough. I think the flavor would get annoying if consuming a number of these at one setting.

3.19/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

12 ounce bottle - $2.29 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a clear, yellow body, a humble appearance, with a slim, very short-lived white head.

Smell: Smells like those watermelon Jolly Rancher candies first and foremost, with a thin cereal-hinted beer underneath.

Taste: Minimal pale malts, a bit of crunchy wheat accompanies the sweet, sugary watermelon flavor. Near nil hop character with just a teensy bit of balancing bitterness. Sweetish, watermelon-flavored finish with a small zip of suds and last minute twang of additive.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. A little over medium carbonation.

Overall: Nice melons!
