Hazy light straw color. (Served with a wedge of watermelon on the glass at the brew pub).

Watermelon, citrus, yeasty, pink grapefruit, toasted white bread, grassy.

Soft round notes of cereal, citrus and yeast on the palate. Fairly four-square with a clean, lactic finish.

Medium- bodied with a slightly watery texture.

Refreshing with the watermelon, but fairly simple and needing a little more texture.

(Tasted from sampler at the brew pub).

Serving type: on-tap

This is my 4th of July beer.

It poured to nearly 2 fingers of white, fizzy head. The body is a translucent pale yellow. Head tries to lace, no-go.

I smell wheat and sugar. Grass is also apparent, and watermelon seems weak, if there at all.

The opening of this is wheat and light yeast. The flavor, as advertised by the can, is dominated early on by watermelon, and they didn't get it quite right. The flavor starts out authentic, but ends up getting into a candy-like sweetness as you're swallowing it. The aftertaste is spot on though. Grass joins the watermelon near the end.

The mouthfeel is light bodied. The carbonation is pretty active on your tongue, and the beer leaves a very light residue on the back of your tongue and roof of your mouth. That said, it is refreshing. Another beer good for yard work.

Serving type: can

A - Cloudy light golden pour with a high white foam head. Soapy lacing on the glass.

S - Has a strong wheat aroma, and certainly a faint smell of watermelon rind. slightly too candy like (think Jolly Rancher) but better than others I can recall.

T - Typical witbier profile more than what one would consider a fruit beer. Light grains give a nice base to a beer that is refreshing. Finish hits the mouth with sweetness of watermelon that is pleasant although maybe a bit too sweet.

M - Has a wheat germ grottiness to it. Leaves a sweet finish that would make it not sessionable to me, but likely for others. Clean beer.

O - Not bad and a good summer beer. I just don't see this being anything special.

Serving type: on-tap
