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

Pale and light yellow color with a light haze. The head is whispy and lacks longevity.

It's not very aromatic, but it has wheat, lemon, and watermelon.

It's tastes exactly as I expected. Whet beer with watermelon. The watermelon is very distinct.

Light body, but crisp and refreshing.

There's not much to this beer yet I feel like I enjoyed it more that my scores would suggest. To put it in context I'm grilling and sweating and it's hot as Hades out here. It was quite quenching.

Canned on 3/26/12 drank on 7/7/13

Hazy, light yellow colored beer with a momentary fizzy white head. Poor retention, no lacing.

Fresh watermelon in the aroma. Some sweet, fruity yeast. Faint malt sweetness, and no hop aroma. I like this beer's aroma quite a bit. It's different.

Fresh watermelon in the flavor. Funky (not sour). Smooth, and creamy. Some malt sweetness, little to no hop flavor.

Medium bodied beer with an extremely smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Delicate carbonation. an average length wet finish.

I understand this beer may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I like it a lot. If you're looking for a good, refreshing summertime lawn mower type beer, this may be right up your alley.

Pours a pale straw color with a thin film of head. The nose has yeast and fruity notes. This offering is super light (too light). The dominant flavor is light fruit accompanied by a fake sour essence that is not terribly pleasant. The finish is semi-dry with more tangy sourness. There is not much flavor here in general.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Hazy light straw color. (Served with a wedge of watermelon on the glass at the brew pub).

Watermelon, citrus, yeasty, pink grapefruit, toasted white bread, grassy.

Soft round notes of cereal, citrus and yeast on the palate. Fairly four-square with a clean, lactic finish.

Medium- bodied with a slightly watery texture.

Refreshing with the watermelon, but fairly simple and needing a little more texture.

(Tasted from sampler at the brew pub).

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

This is my 4th of July beer.

It poured to nearly 2 fingers of white, fizzy head. The body is a translucent pale yellow. Head tries to lace, no-go.

I smell wheat and sugar. Grass is also apparent, and watermelon seems weak, if there at all.

The opening of this is wheat and light yeast. The flavor, as advertised by the can, is dominated early on by watermelon, and they didn't get it quite right. The flavor starts out authentic, but ends up getting into a candy-like sweetness as you're swallowing it. The aftertaste is spot on though. Grass joins the watermelon near the end.

The mouthfeel is light bodied. The carbonation is pretty active on your tongue, and the beer leaves a very light residue on the back of your tongue and roof of your mouth. That said, it is refreshing. Another beer good for yard work.
