A: Pours a light, hazy yellow with fairly nice head which lacks retention and soon subsides to a thin layer of foam that lays atop the beer.

S: Smells predominantly of wheat and watermelon, which is of course a good thing. There seems to be some yeast and tartness on the backend, but I can't make out anything definite. Overall a pleasant aroma.

T: I don't really understand what most people are griping about. This is a wheat beer with watermelon juice in it, it is supposed to taste like wheat and watermelon, which it does and does well. This is no doubt a quirky brew and not for everyone, but I rather enjoyed the light, fruity flavor this beer has to offer. Aside from the wheat and watermelon, which are quite dominant, there is some subtle yeasty flavors and even some tomatoes and vegetables lingering in there. My only gripe is that, as others have stated, the watermelon flavor seems slightly unnatural -- Jolly Rancher-ish, if you will.

M: As others have said, this beer is light on body and carbonation, which I find to be pleasant for the style. It really slides down the throat and feels great on the way down.

D: This beer has superb drinkability... I could easily down an entire six-pack if I'm not careful. The fact that it is light, fruity, and in a can also aids to it's appeal and sometimes I have to convince myself that I'm drinking a beer and not a soda.

Overall a very pleasant beer. I'm happy I noticed it and picked it up. I could think of few better beers to drink during the summer. Kudos.

Cloudy pale straw colour with a small head. No lacing and poor head retention.

Fresh and fruity watermelon aroma with a touch of sweetness. Almost a touch sugary.

Light wheat flavour with a hit of watermelon. Good balance.

Light body with moderate carbonation. Fine.

A decent fruit beer but nothing worth writing home about. Worth trying once and I hear it's better on tap than in the can.

Pours out a nice gold color, small amount of head. Smells like a wheat beer, bit of citrus some watermelon rind? Tastes very light, I can probably drink this all day... watermelon flavor, a bit like watermelon jollyranchers, nice amount of carbonation... definitely refreshing.

I loved the way the watermelon added to this beer. Not overpowering sweetness, just some light melon flavor in the background, refreshing yet slightly dry. This is an excellent summer, hot weather beer. Nice wheat backbone, pale golden in color, light foamy head.
