I have been looking everywhere for this beer. I had this at a bar after a long bike ride, and it was super refreshing! I hate fruity citrus beer but the watermelon had a light undertone and still had a nice light beer taste, not sweet at all. I feel like they balanced this beer very well, but would have loved to taste more hops. I'm super sad I can't find this anywhere else! I'm a huge fan of Lost Coast, this beer only made me fall in love more!

On-tap at the brewery in Eureka, CA.

Pours a cloudy golden colour, perhaps with a hint of pink to it. Head is fine and white. Lace is excellent and intricate. Body is solid. All of these are good things.

Nose is piquant with a tart, direct watermelon aroma. Jolly rancher, with some lilting acid. It turns sweet and slightly cloying after a while. It's powerful, though, and pretty unique.

The taste, however, is pretty much just sweet—it craves some lacto or something to cut through it. In fact, the sweetness turns the watermelon character almost into a sugary strawberry, perhaps with a hint of fake cherry. Light dryness on the back, and a hint of tight but mild astringency. Feel is good, light and fluffy.

Weird beer, but it's interesting and unique enough for what it is. I'm pleased to say that I enjoy it: I think it's the most successful of Lost Coast's fruit beers that I've tried. Maybe that's just because it's unique.
