Ok this was a surprise. Somehow it just didn't sound appealing at all to me so I've avoided trying it until now.
Pours a slightly cloudy, dirty lemon yellow in the glass with a smallish white head that melts quickly leaving little lace, if any.
Aroma is very grainy with just a hint...merely a breath of watermellow sometimes apparent in the finish. And you are right, Ev, cheddar cheese.
Taste is very drying grains with a touch of white pepper and a hint of watermellon on the end...more than in the aroma, but still just a hint. There is a slight bitterness from beginning to end as you swallow until it has completely cleared the mouth, then lightly sweet watermellon.
Full bodied (another surprise) mouthfeel with decent carbonation.
Very refreshing, although it still tastes 'synthetic' to me.

Cans drank at the beach this past weekend.
Did not pour it out, as I was in the water but apparently it's a hazy orange.
Smells like sweet fruits, but not necessarily watermelon. Some wheat is noticed on the nose too.
The taste is similar. It's a standard crisp American pale wheat, with a crisp finish that is accentuated by a mild but juicy watermelon flavor. It's subtle, and doesn't overwhelm the palate or become cloying. The base wheat beer is slightly bitter, and a little bit yeasty- the sweetness from the watermelon keeps both of those in check. The beer is understandably a little watery.
Light bodied, crisp, refreshing mouthfeel- perfect for the situation. High carbonation.
Overall not too bad- it's not a world beater, though. The watermelon flavor is nice, but the base beer could be a little bit better.
