I poured this one into a shaker pint.

Appearance- This is a very velvety and dense white head. It got to about a finger before slowly disappearing, almost completely.

The body is a cloudy gold with some orange highlights.

Smell- There is lots of wheat. Just a little bit of watermelon flavor, not like real watermelon, but like the extract in watermelon gum. A little weird, but not enough to be off-putting.

Taste- I am pleasantly surprised that the watermelon works well on the palate. It works because it is not overly sweet, and just sour enough to taste like actual watermelon.

Wheat is the base and is also a little more sweet than cereal-like, another nice surprise!

Mouth feel- A lighter body that is a little too fizzy. It makes the drink a little astringent. And too watery for how the bubbles feel on the tongue.

Overall- The taste of a beer is the most important characteristic, and this beer does well in this regard. The watermelon flavor is handled with a steady hand. It is not too sweet, and not too overbearing.

This beer may also suffer from being slightly too one-note, and the feel could be a little smoother.

I say try this one if you can. I will admit I was not excited about this, but it could be a great beer to kick back with on a summer afternoon.

Poured into a regular pint, this one's head is about a finger high, white, and creamy. Head fades quickly and lace is little to none. Color of the beer is light yellow and slightly hazy.

The aroma is really weird to me. Smells like wheat, grains, light malts, mixed with a bit of funky sourness, mixed with artificial watermelon, and sweetness. Strange to say the least. Though not entirely bad, not good either.

Taste is a bit better than the aroma, but still not great. Closer to how watermelon tastes, but still seems artificial and watered down. Along with that comes some sweetness and notes of wheat and light malts. That's really about it.

Consistency is crisp, carbonation is light/creamy, body is light, and the finish is short but not gone in an instant. I think the mouthfeel is actually too light overall.

Overall this is not really my cup of tea. An interesting take on a beer, but not something I think I'll seek out again.
