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!

Had a can on the beach, was a great fit.
Nice smell of bready yeast and watermelon juice.
Taste has just the right enough of watermelon. Its definitely a fruit forward beer but it isn't sugary/syrupy or overwhelming. I could easily have drunken a few of them. I don't know if they use real watermelon, I doubt it, but regardless it tastes like real watermelon.
Good change of pace from IPAs, porters and RIS.
