look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Bottle from a Parallel 49 mixed pack poured into a weizen glass. A pale yellow brew, quite cloudy, with a billowing white head and a surprisingly sour and funky aroma ... Smells legitimately Belgian and less like a coriander bomb than many other wits. I have to say, this brew was more interesting than expected. The watermelon was subdued and delivered more green, sour rind than pink watery flesh, a fact with which I am OK. I didn't plan on a Boxer Watermelon experience here (look up that beer, if you dare). Crisp and tart, with some white pepper, coriander, and lemon rind spice apparent along with an almost buttery sweet malt vibe ... For some reason I am reminded of apple cinnamon Cheerios breakfast cereal despite the fact that the overall effect is quite sour with just a little nuttiness. Highly carbonated and on the thin side body-wise, as one might expect ... Some floral hops show up in the green vegetal finish (they hop this with Fuggles, interestingly enough). If you want my honest assessment, this is the sort of witbier I gravitate towards despite the potentially gimmicky watermelon addition. It has some genuine Belgian funky character that even a few of my non-beer geek drinking buddies picked up on and there is no Rickards White style coriander nastiness. If I have any concern at all, it is the fact that the beer is perhaps TOO dry and fizzy at times, when one can particularly notice the sour rind flavor. All in all, though, this is how to do a fruit beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: It has a nice hazy golden/yellow color to it. It has a nice white head that dies down somewhat fast and leaves next to no lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of wheat, watermelon, coriander and citrus.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a some dominant wheat malts, light sugary watermelon, coriander and faint citrus.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by decent flavors and aromas.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

330ml bottle poured into tulip 29/8/13

A hazy pale yellow liquid with plenty bubbles of all sizes clinging to the glass with even the occasional giant, just a short lived finger of foam that leaves no lace

S dry cereal, a little spice, chewing gum, banana and a little watermelon but I doubt I'd guess it if it wasn't implied in the name

T more of the same, tastes like a basic Wit with some fruity notes, decent but basic

M thin and foamy, just a little sticky on the lips with some wheat and fruit on the finish

O not a whole lot going on but its easy to drink, the watermelon plays a small part and I was expecting a little more

OK but not worth seeking out, perhaps well suited for a hot sunny day but this is far from these guys best
