Poured from a can to a standard pint glass (this review from notes taken 7/21/11).
A - Pours a slightly cloudy orange/golden straw color, with 1/2-finger of off-white head that fizzled away quickly. Particles of sediment in suspension, and a little bit of thing lacing.
S - Very mild nose, with a bit of grassy, sunny wheat hidden within a dominating melon-rind/cucumber scent.
T - Mild flavor as well, semi-sweet melon flavor more reminiscent of the white part of a watermelon rind than the pink meat. A bit of sodawater bitterness on the finish, with a sweet wheaty aftertaste.
M - Lighter body, though not thin or watery. Fizzy carbonation bites the edges of the tongue.
D - Light flavor and body makes this crisp and refreshing. The watermelon isn't all that sweet, though it still dominates the mild flavor. It tastes "cool", not bright or warm like a regular wheat beer would, though it didn't have as much flavor as I wanted it to.
As an afterthought, it's "cool" flavor paired really well with spicy Mexican food I ate after my initial tastes.

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.
