This beer was a pleasant surprise. I tried it just for the sake of trying it, and I actually enjoyed the light watermelon flavoring of this beer.

Purchased in a six pack/can from a local bottle shop.

Appearance is typical for a wheat beer: cloudy and off-white/golden.

Watermelon is muted to low appearance. Muted lemon flavor to flat.

Honestly, this beer would probably be better if re-imagined in a Gose style. It lacks the salt-metallic base notes that would bring the watermelon forward in a fresh/true form.

Okay as a wheat beer, but for the price you can purchase a better fruit/wheat beer.

Overall, it stops just short of being refreshing.

Not only is this a terrible wheat beer, it is a bad beer with artificial tasting watermelon flavor in it. I never pour out a beer if I can choke it down. This one got dumped after one painful gulp! Usually I can find something positive in most beers but I am drawing a blank with this one.

A - Pours a clouded golden-yellow, nice effervescence, and a slight head that disappears right away.

S - A gentle, slight aroma. Nothing particular of note.

T - The watermelon does come through. Somebody had mentioned that they thought they could discern watermelon rind, rather than the actual fruit. Interesting, and I could definitely see where they were coming from. Oddly, rind or not, it definitely works nicely.

M - Nice effervescence. Light on the palate.

O - Definitely a nice summer brew. Refreshing, and relatively low on the ABV, allows one to kick a few of back beneath the sun.

look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

Appearance: Golden straw color. Very cloudy with sediment. White foamy head that does not stick around.

Aroma: Light banana and clove, yeasty. Slight watermelon aroma.

Taste: Watery banana, clove and yeast flavor. Some tart and watermelon notes, but overall this is a very bland and watery brew.

Mouthfeel: Light and watery. Very light bodied. Somewhat offensive, does not go down smooth at all.

Drinkability: A sad attempt at a wheat beer. A poorly brewed wheat beer with some watermelon juice added is not a good mix.
