This brew poured with a one finger white head that dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was a clear, golden-yellow color with mild visible carbonation. The nose was very muted. I only got a hint of watermelon. I remember this having more of a nose the last time that I had it. On the taste, the first thing that hit me was how much more carbonation there was on the taste than what I could see in the glass. The next thing that hit me was that this tasted exactly like a liquid watermelon jolly rancher to me. This was completely saturated with lots of artificial watermelon, which wasn’t all that pleasant. After that, I really didn’t get anything else. Any other flavors were completely hidden by the watermelon. The finish was quick, again with watermelon. I remember enjoying this beer much more…I guess my tastes have changed. I would not rush back to have this.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: A pale, straw-yellow and slightly cloudy beer with virtually no head.

S: A somewhat-too sour watermelon smell accompanies a decent wheat aroma.

T: It's almost all watermelon, but it's surprisingly just the right amount. It's not a watered down wheat, nor is it a liquid jolly rancher.

M: Hell or High Watermelon is a fairly light beer.

O: A great summer beer.

Serving type: can

Got this can a year (or two) ago from a friend. Just haven't had the urge to drink watermelon beer...but today was the day.

Pours piss yellow. A 1 finger white head forms and dissipates quickly leaving a collar. Small amounts of carbonation rising. Tons of floaters suspended in the beer...I'm hoping this was intentional. Very off-putting.

Aroma is of light malts, yeast, and a light watermelon sweetness.

Taste has more watermelon sweetness than the aroma, but not overpowering. Yeast and light malts.

Mouthfeel is rather light and lifeless.

Overall, it is drinkable on a hot summer day. But, one was plenty. Can't imagine drinking more.
