My wife's favorite beer, hands down. It has wonderful juicy, fruity, authentic watermelon flavor that dominates the taste. Sweet & sugary, with a bit of dry grainy wheat presence on the finish that finishes it off your palette.

It is a good summer beer. A little flat up front, but like the watermelon taste at the end. Overall, a decent beer.

12 fl oz. can, with enjoy by date 06/30/2015 printed on the bottom of the can. A new beer to me from 21st Amendment Brewery, finally available in my state. Acquired the six pack from the local beer store.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - It pours a nice golden body, maybe a slight green tint, fairly typical of a wheat beer, with just under a finger of frothy white head. Some scattered spotty lacing left behind.

S - A pretty nice aroma, if a little on the sweet side. A grainy wheat malt / base is noticeable beneath the very prominent authentic watermelon / rind / vegetal presence.

T - Taste is the same: juicy, fruity, authentic watermelon / rind flavor dominates this one. Sweet & sugary, with a bit of dry grainy wheat presence on the finish.

M - The feel is smooth, crisp, clean, and easy-drinking. Light-bodied with excellent carbonation.

Overall, this is the better of the two watermelon beers I've had, although it is a bit sweet, perhaps even a tad cloying if one were to drink too much of this. Definitely not something I would drink quantity of, but I would surely be interested in having it again. Recommended.

If you're looking to quench your thirst and want something nice and light than this is the beer for you. Not super into wheat beers but this one was refreshing. Maybe because I am a huge fan of anything watermelon

Looks like a watered down hefeweizen. Smells like watermelon rind and barnyard funk. Taste is watermelon flavored airhead candy infused beer. Clean mouthfeel.

Very refreshing - but not wheaty enough for me. Not a huge watermelon guy, but the flavoring really works. Excellent summertime offering

12oz can, Enjoy By 06/30/15. I probably wouldn't have bought this, but it was included in a beer-store-made mixed 4 pack of 21st Amendment beers new to the Chicago area, so I figured, why not?
A - looks pale in color - but pretty much unknown - drank from the can
S - mild aroma - mostly some wheat, grass, and watermelon
T - nice refreshing mild flavors of cracked wheat, watermelon, lemongrass
M - lighter bodied, ample carbonation, very modest bitterness - ideal for the style
O - interesting variation on a wheat beer with the watermelon in there. I actually could see myself buying some more of this for my wife and I to drink on a super hot summer day.

Just a really refreshing canned beer. Perfect for a hot day if you want something on the sweeter end. Not normally one for fruit beers, or wheat beers for that matter, but this remains an exception.

Very soft/light but very pleasing, natural watermelon character. Not so much in aroma but taste. Not too sweet; could even use a little more sweetness on the back end as it is pretty crisp and a bit bland with basically very light wheat flavour. Wishing for a little more complexity/balance between the malts, watermelon, or bit of something like tropical hops to really set this apart from the crowd.

Incredible summer beer, tartness from watermelon is palatable and not off putting, at 4.9% ABV it's definitely got the kick for funtime summer drinking
