Review from BeerAdvocate magazine Vol. II Issue VIII:
The can says to agitate before opening, so we know this is an unfiltered wheat. Fermented with watermelon, and watermelon juice added. The wheat really rises to the occasion with a sturdy and healthy froth, and does not want to move even after a sip or two. Golden yellow color, obvious haze from the yeast that was agitated back into the beer. Big wheat and yeast twang in the nose with a mild, fermented fruit tartness and bitterness from the rind. More than enough crispness to go around, compliments of the wheat. Moderately sized body. Quick, refreshing twang of fermented watermelon and rind that resembles a rhubarb-like flavor. Hops leave a little bit of bitterness, just enough to balance. Melon flavor throughout is light but even. Finishes with a lasting kernel of wheat malt and remnants of melon rind.
Interesting stuff here: The watermelon works with and contrasts itself at the same time. Perhaps a bit to intricate though still somewhat drinkable. Worth a shot if you are into different kinds of fruit beers.

Looks like the date has been scratched off the bottom of the can, but as far as I can tell by the look, smell and taste and feel that nothing seems too off to be too bad. Ok, let's do this.
From the can into a pint glass.
A: hazy yellowed body with what looks like fruit particles floating around, one finger frothy-like foamy head that dies within less than thirty seconds, lacing tries to cling but slides and is pretty sporadic all over the place
S: wheat and watermelon up front, some pineapple, light lemon and strawberry in the background coming through in a sweet candy-like expression, slightly herbal as well
T: sweet and bready through the previously mentioned fruits; watermelon/wheat aftertaste, watery sticky finish
M: light, sessionable, carbonation is good for the style as there's a nice refreshing sort of quality to probably want someone to pound these on a hot day for me, not bad
O: with all of the fruit that I get in this beer, I can definitely see a very nice refreshing aspect to it that would be nice on a hot summer's day but for me, there could be just a tad too much, basically an average fruit beer to me
