Got a can from a rep at the Ontario Brewing awards.
I have to assume that they tweaked the formula since NorthYorkSammy's review, as this isn't cloying at all.
Poured into a weisse glass, pale straw color with maybe a hint of rose at the upper edge (the widest part of the glass) - fine, champagne like carbonation leaves a thin but persistent head with some lacing.
The fruit comes through on the aroma, although I'm not sure I'd have known it was watermelon if it was a blind pour (my girlfriend guessed pineapple and berry, and I can see either). I get a bit of grain, which seems a little harsh. The flavor, also, is the tandem of the watermelon and the wheat - not a lot else, but it's one of the better fruit wheats I've had because it dries out and finishes with a fairly crisp herbal-watermelon thing. I'm interested to see what it's like on draft, but if it's comparable, I'd definitely grab one or two of these on a summer afternoon!

On tap at the Brewer’s Backyard event, entitled The Constitutional Draught. Nothing in the smell, but a syrupy infused sweet yes cloying flavouring joined in the wheat. Not too drinkable. A novelty, but also taking the Ontario craft scene back a couple of steps.
