I poured this watery beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. Not cold enough! The beer was a pee colored concoction but did poor a really pretty big white head. i was hopeful. Slight watermelon smell first then kinda sour smell. Worried. Slightly cloudy looking also. The beer was VERY watery tasting. Kinda like watermelon kool aid that half the flavor packet had not made it into the mix. I will not buy this beer again.

$4.75 can had at Brick Oven Bistro in Sandusky, Ohio after a Cedar Point trip. If you're hungry after visiting Cedar Point, that place is an absolute must visit. Well, if you're hungry for PIZZA after Cedar Point... anyway! Served into the snifter that was handed to me.

I've heard some seriously mixed things about this beer since I first heard about it about a year ago. I've been interested in having it, and finally had the opportunity (obviously). First things first, the can is awesome and catches the eye. Taking a smell... I get the slightest amount of watermelon. Really, it's super wheat. It smells like a pretty mediocre wheat beer and is incredibly "meh".

The appearance is slightly hazy (hm, could that be from the wheat!?) yellow with a bright white head that dies down. No lacing that I could tell.

Okay, the taste. Seriously, if you've had Leinenkugel Summer Shandy, think of that, but replace the lemon with watermelon. Massive amounts of watermelon in this one, no joke. A bit of a wheaty finish, but there's not much to it outside of the watermelon. Not very beer-y, but you get what you (should) expect. The smell is super deceiving. Very drinkable, tasty, sessionable as hell... just no complex flavors that'll make a sophisticated craft beer drinker think "Hm. Ah, yes. Quite exquisite *tips fedora*."

If you're looking for a beer that honestly tastes like watermelon (for some reason), here you go. Watermelon beginning until the end when a wheat character comes in to cleanse the palate a bit. I actually really enjoyed this beer and would definitely buy it in the summer if it were available in Michigan.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Can poured into plastic glass

Big two finger white frothy cap quickly settles down to a white layer. Active carbonation in a golden yellow liquid.

Aroma of straw, spices, citrus and watermelon

Sweet Watermelon on the front of the tongue. Hefewiesse on the middle , lemony and yeast. Tastes like the label on the can reads, wheat beer with watermelon.

Very light mouthfeel, no carbonation.

Refreshing, good for a hot summer day after cutting the lawn.

Serving type: can
