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.

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.

Poured on-tap into hell or high watermelon glass (a small hefeweizen glass)...garnished with a piece of watermelon.
A: Pours a clear yellow with moderate carbonation. Thin white head quickly dissipates.
S: Watermelon, citrus hops, and mild malt.
T: Watermelon, soft citrus hops, smooth wheat, and super mild malt.
M: Very light body. Smooth and mildly sweet.
D: Very drinkable, but not complex...kinda like watermelon.
