I liked it !!. Color was a gold, no cloudiness. Smells like tart honeydew or watermelon. Taste is very nice with good carbonation. The flavor lingered in my mouth for quite some time. The balance between beer and melon was exceptionally nice. Overall, I think it should be drank very cold because as the beer heats up, the melon flavor becomes a little fake. Overall, a nice balanced beer and great flavor

To be fair, I'm not too into most fruit beers. But my husband, who likes anything sweet and fruity, couldn't resist picking up a bottle of this.

I wouldn't say that this beer was awful. But the flavor profile reminded me of Pez candies and not in a bad way either.
