Poured from a 12oz can into a pint glass in high altitude Libby, Mont. Reviewed live.
A- Half a finger white head with little retention and no lacing. Pale straw color with high clarity.
S- Light wheat and malts smells. Some earthy funk, subtle. Straw, malt and sugar. Do not smell watermelon.
T- Watermelon much more present in the taste, along with wheat, earthy yeast sort of flavors and tartness. Kind of rancid tasting, actually.
M- Light, sugary and wet feel. Clean finish.
O- I'm really disappointed. I'm going to chalk this one up to not travelling well and hopefully try it again someday. It cost me less than two bucks, so I'm not disappointed with the price fallout.

Brought this beer into the store because some guy told me a story about how he was stranded on the side of the road in Nevada and that he found a can of this and it saved his life. Will it save mine? Probably not, but this guy has a story and I'll try and relive it.
I was really put off by this beer at first but after a few sips and some time to air out, its starting to grow on me. Oddly enough this beer presents itself in a way which is the opposite of which you think it would. Up front first is the wheatiness of the beer, touch of coriander with grain husk. This mid sized body thins out into a semi sweet watermelon effervescence and a dry finish. Overall mimosa like with some watermelon juice.
For what it is, its refreshing fruity and unlike anything I've ever had before. It takes a little while to understand it and enjoy it, but its one of the most innovative beers I've had.

Appearance: Golden with a light amber/orange color to it. About a 10 SRM. The beer pours nice and strong giving a full inch of head. It lingers for the first few sips but after swirling it has faded away.
Scent: Light aroma, mild tartness coming from the wheat. Slight biscuity notes up front. Underneath the grain is a very mild watermelon smell. Very reminiscent of watermelon candy or watermelon italian ice. Not overpowering in the slightest.
Taste: Right up front you get a bit more of that watermelon flavor, which comes on a little bit stronger than the aroma, but still very mild. It lasts for a few seconds, mingling with the wheat’s tartness before dissipating. As soon as the watermelon fades in comes the biscuit again as the closer to finish it all out.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied. The carbonation isn’t over the top. Short on the tongue.
Overall: Between this and Abita’s Strawberry Harvest, I’m finding more fruit beers that I like. These are not pumped with artificial flavors that overpower the beer. The watermelon in this beer is so subtle that it could easily be overlooked if your not thinking about the flavors. Once you start to really dig into the beer the watermelon comes out of hiding and compliments the wheat very nicely.
