This is the first ever watermelon ale I have tried. It has a wonderful aroma obviously of watermelon with a bit of watermelon rind in the taste. This beer is unique, and it pours a shiny yellowish color with a decent amount of lace and head. The taste is a little underwhelming compared to the smell and is slightly bitter with a sharp aftertaste. Not too bad, it's more of a novelty, but not bad at all.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: This fruit wheat beer has a nice hazy, straw yellow color. When poured it has a nice white head.

Smell: This has a nice, light watermelon smell. I could pick up on the fruity watermelon smell right away but not over powering by any stretch of the imagination. Has a slight tart smell to it as well. Great smelling, light beer.

Taste: Has a great watermelon flavor with a little wheat like taste in the back ground. Goes down way to easy. On a hot summer day in phoenix these will really be hitting the spot. Taste slightly like a watermelon jolly rancher but way lighter in the sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Nice amount of carbonation. Had the perfect amount of carbonation to deliver that nice watermelon flavor and stay light on the palate.

Overall: I have to say this a is winner. We need more sessionable beers like this in az. I am a sucker for fruit beers but also am somewhat picky. I don't want something very sweet but something that delivers great fruit flavor without being overpowered which is what this beer comes threw in spades on. Will be drinking this summer 2012 in AZ.
