From the can marked enjoy by 8/31/2015. Sampled on July 3, 2015.

It pours into a tall Pilsener glass a light pale yellow color with a quick lasting fizzy white head.

Yep, I pick up a few slices of watermelon in the aroma with a more subdued wheat malt character. Some thin spice.

Light body.

Again, like the aroma, watermelon is vibrant in the flavor with a slightly fade wheat note and a mild bitterness to finish. A good one to have on the beach.

What is up with all the hate for this beer?

Love the wheat and watermelon combo, works perfectly and is the best summer, poolside brewski!

a: a light straw color. a hint of pale orange. fizzy white foam on top

s: lemongrass, wheat, coriander, saltwater toffee, watermelon. interesting

t: watermelon juice right away. refreshing. sweet caramel, lemongrass, wheat, grainy, sweet tea

m: lighter side of medium. high carbonation. pretty fizzy

o: its refreshing, but i'm not sure watermelon is my top choice of flavor to put in beer. its not "bad" it just seems that the flavors don't quite harmonize together in here

Really great summer beer. Light watermelon flavor in a light bodied ale. Not going to blow your socks off, but for what it is, it's a great beer.

This beer is more of a "Hey look, I'm drinking watermelon beer" type of beer. The taste of this beer definitely is as described with it's malty start in tasting and its eventual watermelon rind aftertaste. Other than that this beer really lacks in other respects especially with smell. Little to no aroma comes from this beer and the feel of this beer is very watery and lacks any real substance. Other than the interesting watermelon aspect and how refreshing it is, this beer doesn't have much going for it.

Not great. Taste cheap, with slight watermelon flavor. Too light.

Can from the infamous GCG
Hazy murky straw color with a frothy tightly bubbled white head. Earthy wheat with hints of watermelon rind. The flavor feels more like cantaloupe with a bready spicy almost rancid light candied flavor to it. I find this completely bland and can't see a reason to ever put this to my lips again.

from a 12 oz. can into a weisse glass

hardly any head, no lacing, clear pale gold...nose is pretty disappointing, a little watermelon but mainly just some dull graininess, taste is better with the sweetness of the watermelon and some round melon and cucumber notes, as well as a little wheat, the feel though disappoints, lacking any kind of crispness or snap...undercarbonated.

Looks refreshinng and has a nice hint of watermelon in the nose but the taste is pretty bland. I was glad to see the watermelon wasn't overpowering but there's not much to go with it. Serve this on a hot summer day to your friends who aren't into craft beer. It might be an entree.

My girlfriend and I were looking for a light, new, easy drinker the other day. Thought this would be it...and it was...just wasn't anything special...and definitely not worth the price. Drank out of a can, but will not voluntarily buy it again..

Go buy watermelon vodka if you want watermelon taste. This stuff sucks.

12 oz bottle.
Hazy golden body with a good head.
The aroma is unappealing but the flavor is good and has an actual watermelon note.
I suppose this requires a fairlly mild flavor in order for the watermelon to shine through.
Refreshing.
