Pours a murky tannish copper color. Small white had which dissipates with spotty lacing. The smell is odd, there is some watermelon but also a heavy, earthy wheat smell that mostly covers it up. The taste is more watermelon, not too bad really but a bit on the watery side. Plenty of wheat flavor here as well. Body is on the thin and watery side. Overall this is not the best fruit beer I've had, the flavors behind the watermelon don't really back it that well, making for a beer where the fruit aspect is good but the rest is not really.

This beer pours a slightly hazy yellow with a pillowy white head and no lacing. The aroma is of watermelon with cake and mild sweet malt. The flavor is watermelon throughout with lemon, cake, and wheat malt notes. There is a good balance between the watermelon and the rest in both the aroma and on the palate. It's mouthfeel is light. 21st Amendment Hell Or High Watermelon Wheat Beer is a good beer, a good example of the style, and refreshing. Recommended.

Slightly hazy light gold/straw colored body. Lots of carbonation. Crisp white head about two fingers thick. Recedes to a thin white lacing. Pretty decent for style. Head disappears completely.
Very light aroma of cracker like malt and a subtle watermelon (candyish) aroma. Like a wheat beer with a watermelon jolly rancher dropped in. Sweet cereal grains in the nose.
Remains a very refreshing beer with a great watermelon flavor (even if somewhat artificial) that is not overly sweet, and still slightly resembles beer. Pretty good execution. Light watermelon hints in the finish and aftertaste. Not dry, but pretty clean finish. Great level of carbonation. Medium bodied. Not excessive carbonation but definitely on the more appropriate side of full carbonation. Wheat malt comes through in the beginning. Clean, cracker like. Good flavor. Excellent.
I think this beer is great. With summertime arrived, this is a great beer for drinking by the water. Pretty approachable by everyone, and it treats the fruit wheat beer category right.

A "gift" from my son. Pours a very hazy yellow color with a white head and soda like carbonation. This beer was absolutely disgusting. It smelt like puke!! I checked the can date and it was only 5 weeks old so that wasn’t it.
I thought about just dumping it but it was all I had so after thinking long and hard, I remembered that if you hold your nose you can’t really taste what is in your mouth. It worked, I got it down fast. This is nasty shit!! I wish I could rate it even lower.

I have heard of this mythical beer. I even travelled to the brewery to try some. It was before baseball even started, so no luck. So I finally encountered some just in time for Labor Day.
A- Poured right from the can into my pint glass. A hazy light yellow tan with barely a head to even mention. Looks like a headless hef.
S- Sweet maltiness with a touch a sour fruit. Actually green applely to me. Not much there besides that. I probably would not guess watermelon as the fruit o smell.
T- Definetly get the sweet malts, and the distinct tanginess with what must be the watermelon. It has a citrus character to it. Like a hef with a lemon in it. Then, the more I taste it, the more I recognize the watermelon, and the more I like it.
M- This is an easy drinking beer. Medium bodied with nice carbonation in there that complements the citrus I taste.
D- I feel good about drinking this beer because it is my first experience with any watermelon beer, I love summer, I love drinking beer in the summer, and this beer is refreshing. Definetly not on my session list, but I like it.
