Poured from a can refrigerator cold into a generic chalice.
A - Vigorous pour produces a nice 2 fingers of head, quickly recedes to a ring, and after a while recedes to nothing. The beer itself is a nice hazy light gold color. Looks good at first, although the lack of retention is a definite downer.
S - Not much here. Smells like a wheat beer, with a nebulous fruit odor. Of course the label tells me it's watermelon, but as watermelon doesn't have much of a smell, that doesn't add much. Not all that pleasant of an aroma, to be honest.
T - The label doesn't lie, this has a ton of watermelon flavor, although it detracts from the wheat beer experience. The beer gets points for having a ton of fruit flavor while not overwhelming with cloying sweetness, or even being sweeter than a typical wheat beer. It loses points because the watermelon overwhelms the wheat, and instead of accentuating the beer, takes it over. Nevertheless, I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt, since this was likely intentional. Not bad.
M - Light, probably because of whatever process infuses it with watermelon flavor. Not as much body as I'd like to see in a wheat beer, nor is there as much carbonation. Falls short on the feel.
O - Since I think they are trying to replicate the experience of biting into a piece of watermelon, as that's exactly what this tastes like, it's not bad. But as an actual wheat beer, it's not very good. I don't mind fruit in beer, but this is more beer trying to taste like fruit, than it is fruit trying to accentuate the flavors of a beer. I'll give it points for being refreshing, and having a rather nice watermelon flavor, but it's not something I would reach for if I wanted a beer.

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.

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.
