Canned microbrew! The wave of the future! (I hope)
Aroma - definitive sweet watermelon, crisp wheat, clean - no diacetyl, no noticable hops.
Appearance - Hazy golden hue, long lasting white head.
Flavor - Malty, wheat backbone that is slightly tart, pronounced fresh watermelon accent that tastes like real watermelon. Slight hop bitterness, focus is definitely on the blend of fruits. Well attenuated as it has a dry finish.
Mouthfeel - Crisp, clean with moderate carbonation, slightly creamy texture and a bit of warmth, not astringent. Light-medium bodied.
Overall Impression - This is a really well executed fruit beer, the balance of the base beer is almost perfect. Some critiques... I think a bit more wheaty twang and a spicy phenolic would go really well with the fresh watermelon flavors. Its a really great, easy drinking beer that I would love to enjoy on a hot summer day.
Thanks to barleypop for the can!

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.
