not a lot of watermelon beers out there, and even less good ones. while this isnt astounding, its pretty cool. clear, which surprises me, looks nice from the can with an inch of white head, but it only lasts a minute. color darker than expected for a basic wheat base (or so i thought). the nose here is off a little, more rind than watermelon flesh, the can says it was made with the juice of the watermelon, but it doesnt come through in the nose. some honey does though, not sure where that comes from, but it smells like honey queen from sam adams. the nose instead is a sweet weirdly almost composting fruitiness, i definitely get the wheat too. the flavor is better, with the watermelon being there all the way though, not just in the finish, and not too much, its just an accent flavor. problem is, the base beer isnt all that compelling to me. clean and brightly carbonated though, and it feels pretty satisfying as a summer drink if you like the flavor. i dont love it, but i dont hate it either.

12 oz can poured hazy copper-amber with a sizable bubbly head.

Light body with mid - high carbonation.

Mild but appealing aroma is bready with a hint of fruit.

Little flavor; mostly simple light baked grain but some watermelon too.

O: No serious flaws but still a disappointing, overly mild wheat beer.

This pours a semi-clear, golden yellow color with a thick, foamy white head. The aroma is mild with hints of grain and malt but no real trace of watermelon. The taste is smooth and lightly fruity. This delivers a good, refreshing light summer taste that is very drinkable. Nothing complex or unique here, just an easy drinking summer brew.
