12 oz. can, 2014 edition, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a cloudy, hazy, golden, yellow/straw color with a quarter of a finger of very white-colored head that quickly dissolved away into a thin lacing of foam that only covered maybe a quarter of the top of the beer.

Aroma: Not much in the aroma department, actually, which is both surprising and disappointing. I actually don’t get any aromas what-so-ever.

Taste: However, this beer has a lot of flavor, predominately watermelon. Strong, fruity, crisp, semi-sweet, yet slightly sour flavors of watermelon up front, followed by some honey, slightly toasted wheat and some floral, grassy flavors. But the predominate flavor is watermelon. Actually, the beer’s flavor reminds me a lot of the watermelon-flavored Jolly Rancher® candy.

Mouth feel: Medium-bodied and very crisp as there’s quite a lot of carbonation to this beer. With an ABV of 4.9%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: Interesting beer. Lots of watermelon, a little wheat, and a touch of honey. Interesting. I’m not sure if I like it, but I do find in intriguing.

Most of this sixer was out of the can, but I saved one to pour in a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about thirty seconds leaving barely any lacing.
The smell definitely had the watermelon with a decent fair kick of wheat at the end.
The taste followed the nose with the kick of wheat giving off a fuller quality about it.
The mouthfeel was about a medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed appropriately styled for the American wheat ale style.
Overall, honestly, it's just an okay kind of beer. Nothing special but nothing bad.

If you like wheat beers and watermelon then this is your beer. Wheat beers are kinda gross and boring, IMO, but this wasn't terrible.
