Golden beer. A little orange-y in its hue. Dead-headed. Started out with an inch or two, then fizzled out to nothing.

Syrupy sweet artificial watermelon and apricot. Very sugary. Like a sour watermelon gummi candy. Hints of orange and artificial peach. Yikes.

Fake watermelon again. Bubblicious gum, melon ring, and sugary herb tea. Too sweet. Light and watery. Barely beer. Difficult to handle.

Carbonated just fine. Body is super thin. Drinks like a cider. Not for me.

Regrettable purchase. Will pawn off to anyone else. Avoid.

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.
