Can from the infamous GCG
Hazy murky straw color with a frothy tightly bubbled white head. Earthy wheat with hints of watermelon rind. The flavor feels more like cantaloupe with a bready spicy almost rancid light candied flavor to it. I find this completely bland and can't see a reason to ever put this to my lips again.

from a 12 oz. can into a weisse glass

hardly any head, no lacing, clear pale gold...nose is pretty disappointing, a little watermelon but mainly just some dull graininess, taste is better with the sweetness of the watermelon and some round melon and cucumber notes, as well as a little wheat, the feel though disappoints, lacking any kind of crispness or snap...undercarbonated.

Looks refreshinng and has a nice hint of watermelon in the nose but the taste is pretty bland. I was glad to see the watermelon wasn't overpowering but there's not much to go with it. Serve this on a hot summer day to your friends who aren't into craft beer. It might be an entree.

My girlfriend and I were looking for a light, new, easy drinker the other day. Thought this would be it...and it was...just wasn't anything special...and definitely not worth the price. Drank out of a can, but will not voluntarily buy it again..

Perfect for a hot day, this wheat ale has a nice tinge of watermelon.

Go buy watermelon vodka if you want watermelon taste. This stuff sucks.

12 oz bottle.
Hazy golden body with a good head.
The aroma is unappealing but the flavor is good and has an actual watermelon note.
I suppose this requires a fairlly mild flavor in order for the watermelon to shine through.
Refreshing.

Appearance: Cloudy yellow with a decent head of foam, a touch of lacing, and quite a bit of carbonation.

Smell: Watermelon Jolly Ranchers.

Taste: Wheat beer, cucumber, with a hint of watermelon.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with a slightly sweet watermelon finish.

The Verdict: Not bad. The aroma was off-putting, but the watermelon flavor doesn't really kick in until the finish. Might make a good middle of summer session beer.

Drinking my first beer from 21 amendment... Not happy. Might as well of cracked a bud light open. Lacked personality, flavor, bite, and so much more. Looks like they mashed a few old watermelons and hoped for the best.

Nearly clear golden yellow with a pile of suds and lots of lacing in the tall Blanche de Chambly glass. Slightly tangy with a persistent but mild flavort of watermelon. Some wheaty taste with a malty flavor. Light bodied but silky on the tongue.

Clean, refreshing, with a flavor of cucumber when you take a sip, followed by the watermelon aromatics. Warm with just a touch of sweetness. I don't know why this is hated so much, by some anyway. But then I hate cinnamon in beer. Thoroughly drinkable. From the 12 oz can purchased at Whidbey Beer Works in Oak Harbor, Washington.

Easy lawn mowing or golf course sipping beer. It's as though you were drinking the watermelon juice at the bottom of the bowl. 2 thumbs up!

L: Hazy straw under a 1” quickly disappearing white foam cap.
S: Light watermelon, fruit, wheat, not a big nose.
T: Starts with a fruit palate and then the watermelon bursts through with some wheat, moderate sweetness and a bitter finish.
F: Creamy, light, refreshing, above average carbonation.
O: I can’t drink a lot of this at one time. Its odd but it somehow works. They deserve some points for creativity.
