look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Poured from can into pint glass

Appearance - Pours a hazy straw color with a decent head the fades quickly.

Smell - The smell is rather offensive. Metallic and watermelon dominate the smell profile.

Taste - Taste is similar to the smell, rather offensive. Has a rather off artificial watermelon flavor mixed with some wheat malt and again a metallic taste coming in at the end.

Mouthfeel - The mouthfeel was not too bad really. It had a good level of carbonation and for its relatively low abv it had a decent body.

Overall - This is a beer I would not buy again.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Serving Type - Can

Appearance - Light yellow/pineapple juice color. Foamy 1 inch head with plenty of lacing.

Smell - Bold watermelon, yeasty sugars, lemon, grape. Some faint malts.

Taste - First sip is straight watermelon. Some sugars, lemon, grapes and pineapple come out after the watermelon. Mild malts add a little wheat flavor.

Mouthfeel - From first sip, tongue and palate gets watermelon. Some sugars and wheat come in the finish.

Overall - A nice light summer beer. Its not overly flavorful, or sweet but has a nice real watermelon flavor. Maybe a little more fruit flavor would help this out some but, none the less, is a enjoyable beer for what it is.

3.65/5  rDev +10.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance:
Looks like a hazy coors, little head/retention. No lacing.

Smell:
A little tart/sour citrus with a touch of watermelon. Not 4 loko, but still a noticeable fruitiness. Smells a little like Mac and cheese...

Taste:
The watermelon is as prominent as is the wheat. A touch of tartness, but mainly the watermelon comes through strongly.

Mouthfeel:
Fairly light bodied beer that has inadequate carbonation by the end. It does have an interesting, watermelon-like aftertaste.

Overall:
This is totally not a mid-winter drink but I'd probably appreciate it on the beach in the summer. A little bit too light of a wheat beer but it's not terrible either.
