Poured from a can into a tumbler glass creating a two finger head that dissolved within a minute.
Appearance: Cloudy yellowish hue.
Aroma: Starts out average beer smell, yeasty like the odor of a bar. The watermelon comes in the end but you really have to search for it. If I didn't know this beer was brewed with watermelons I wouldn't have guessed from the aroma.
Taste: A typical wheat beer taste with a slight twist. The watermelon flavor starts as the bitterness of the rind, but transforms into a bit of sweetness near the end. Not your average 'fruity pebbles' type taste that comes from many fruit beers. However, in some ways the bitterness of the hops do not mix completely well with the watermelon's sweetness. Instead it feels a little like they are competing for your tongue's attention with neither winning.
Mouthfeel: I used a pretty aggressive pouring method to rid the beer of some of it's carbonation but it still drinks like a soda. Though, that is not completely bad as it makes it pretty refreshing. The drinkability is also pretty high on this one.
Final Thoughts: This was an average beer. I could see myself having it again at a backyard BBQ or summer get together. As far as summer seasonal's go, it's better than most. It's just complex enough to make it interesting, but not near enough to make it exceptional.

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.
