2.34/5  rDev -29.1%
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

This is my first beer from 21st Amendment. I am a fan of both wheat beers and fruit beers; haven't ever had a watermelon beer so I'm curious about this one.

A: Poured from the can into a nonic pint glass. Color is a hazy light yellow. You can tell this is an unfiltered wheat beer. There's a foamy two fingers of head that is gone just as quickly as it came. No lacing. Half way through there is no appearance of carbonation. Doesn't even look like a beer.

S: Pretty subtle. At first I smell a light citrus bitterness, and then the melon comes in the nose. After a few more whiffs it smells more like a vegetable beer.

T: The very initial taste is wheat malt and then the watermelon rushes over the taste buds. It recedes to a melon rind and cucumber taste. The more I drink the more these tastes meld together and become less identifiable.

MF: Light and pretty crisp. It is easy drinking but not as refreshing as I'd like a watermelon wheat beer that comes under 5% ABV.

O: Not sure how I feel about this beer. I enjoyed it, but I don't think I'd spend the money on this brew again. There's plenty of other great session beer options.
