look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - The beer was a nice golden straw color with a fluffy white head.

Smell - I actually thought this beer had a pleasant aroma. I got honey out of the aroma more than anything, so the aroma was a little deceiving.

Taste - On the initial taste, I noted candy watermelon. The watermelon notes were far from realistic. This might suggest some type of extract. In the broader picture, I might suggest this beer tastes like a mouth full of watermelon Jolly Ranchers and grass. The sweetness fades in the aftertaste to become more typical of a wheat beer.

Mouthfeel - It tastes like a wheat, but really does not have any thickness. I would go so far as to suggest it to be slightly watery.

Overall - I still have not found a watermelon wheat that I really like.

(Served in a flute)
A- This beer pours a hazy hint of the lemon yellow body with a thin snow white film supported by a sluggish big carbonation.

S- The clean aroma has a light corn chip hint as it warms.

T- The clean light lagered field corn note leads to a green biter note that lingers. There is a watermelon rind hint that leads to a jolly rancher flavor comes through in the finish.

M- The light mouthfeel has a crisp little fizz in the finish.

O- This beer has an interesting watermelon note but it is a bit harsh in the bitterness in the finish without other flavors to support or cut it.

12 oz.

Pours a light hazy gold, over an inch of white fluffy head dissipates slowly.

Smells of grassy barley malts with a light citrus and mild semi-sweet fruitiness.

Tastes of mild grassy malts, light citrus, and a melon sweetness. A little white grape as well.

Light to medium body with a soft carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

A nice light session-candidate wheat ale, great summer beer, goes down easy, good flavor balance, surprisingly good body. Unless you object to the melon element, this is hard to knock. Not a superstar beer, but well worth trying.
