I used to work in the neighborhood of 21st Amendment, and this quickly became a favorite summertime beer. Your first reaction to hearing the name is "watermelon? in a beer?". But watermelon provides a suprisingly light and refreshing twist to a wheat beer. After drinking it, we all had the sudden desire to try to brew it ourselves.
It arrives with a nice head, nice clear color, and a slice of watermelon (instead of the typical lemon). The taste is all beer, with just a hint of watermelon - enough to make a difference without feeling cloying or gimmicky. The draught is very refreshing, cutting through any flavors in whatever food you may be eating and cleansing your palette. Perfect with one of their great burgers, before strolling down to a game.
Serving type: on-tap

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
