12 oz can into a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear (by wheat beer standards) straw color. There are two fingers of white-colored head. Unfortunately, the texture is akin to soda...and so is the retention. Almost no lacing is left behind.

S: Watermelon notes are very timid in this one. The base beer, on the other hand, seems to be very buttery and sweet - I hate to say it smells redolent of a macro lager, but it freakin' does. Okay, now I'm getting some watermelon after this opens up. Just a bit.

T: There's more of a watermelon presence on the palate, being sandwiched by a malty sweet start and a faintly buttery finish. Not as macro lagery as the nose indicated. A rather mediocre beer, but at least it's not a syrupy, watermelon-induced nightmare.

M: Rather light and sweet on the palate. Not disgustingly sweet, thankfully. The carbonation seems powerful, but it's obscured by the sweetness somewhat.

O: Someone was bound to make a watermelon beer eventually, and I'm glad 21st Amendment did. This kind of beer isn't my thing - while it's refreshing, I can think of more enjoyable beers that do the same basic thing. Try it if you really like watermelon, otherwise get something else.

Pours out a nice yellow in color maybe a little darker than yellow but pretty close. Definitely a healthy two-finger white head with decent retention but really nice lacing.

Smell is pretty mellow with not much in the nose at all. Maybe a little sweet malts and that's about all I get.

Taste is quite different. There is a TINY bit of watermelon but I would not have guessed it if I didn't see the name. The backbone is sorta there but there really isn't much to this beer.

Mouthfeel is basically what I would expect from a wheat beer like this as it is quite thin.

Overall this is just not the beer I expected. It's not a decent wheat beer and I really only get a TINY bit of anything resembling watermelon or fruit. That being said it's not a bad beer but it isn't much better than a bud or something. I would not recommend this beer as it was a total letdown.

Poured into a chilled pint glass

A - Straw hazy orange...identical to a blue moon. Depleting one inch head and noticeably a wheat beer.

S - You get that wheat beer smell some fruit and melon too. No hop presence.

T - A perfect summer, easy drinking brew. In the taste you really get that watermelon flavor.especially after swallowing it... I don't understand why this beer got the rating it did....so lame.

M - easy drinking brew, medium carbonation.

A perfect beer for hanging out back with a bbq. easy drinking...slightly fruity. Some citra hop presence would have put this beer over the top....it would of complemented this watermelon nice. Go get it.
