Poured into a Florida Beer Co. tapered glass. Bottom of can says Enjoy By 06/30/14. Damn cardboard six-pack packaging...

A- Pours a hazy dark golden color very similar to the way cider looks with a 1/2 inch white head that retains a bit before becoming a paper-thin ring around the edge of the glass and nearly no surface foam. No lacing to speak of.

S- Weak wheat beer smell. Hint of generic watermelon.

T- Starts out with that standard light wheat taste and then comes the watermelon that's very apparent but also somewhat subtle. The watermelon is a bit artificial tasting but luckily it's not too sweet so it remains manageable. Easy to drink, almost too easy. Watermelon aftertaste is OK.

M- Slightly syrupy with medium carbonation and a light body.

O- This beer serves its purpose as an innocuous, inoffensive wheat beer with some watermelon flavoring thrown in to make it a bit different. It's a quaffer, great for music festivals and sporting events where you just want something semi-refreshing and accessible to gulp and share with friends. Especially good for the non-beer-loving females. In the overall scheme of things though, there are much better things to be drank out there.

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.25

12 oz can poured into a shaker pint.

Appearance
straw-yellow with 1 finger of fluffy white head. Moderate carbonation with a slight haze.

Nose
Wheat, spent grains, butter, and a slight whiff of watermelon.

Taste
Big on wheatiness with a light lemony twang. Spent grains along with a terrible butter flavor that I usually find in Blue Moon. Slight essence of watermelon that comes off quite artificial.

Mouthfeel
Medium-light bodied, crisp, and clean.

Overall
A boring wheat beer with buttery off-flavors.

A 12oz can - Finally getting around to rating this one

A - Golden yellow with clarity. 1 finger of head and not much lacing. Carbonation bubbles

S - Not getting much on the nose. Light malting.

T - Watermelon, and lots of it. Refreshing and light. Slight bitter hop kick, and some citrus

M - Light bodied, refreshing, smooth. Not much too it

O - A good summer brew for a hot day. And excellent if you like watermelon and beer I suppose
