Boom! this is a great Watermelon beer! just like Hell or High Watermelon I really enjoy this. Slight watermelon taste compliments the wheat beer. A good summer brew to share with friends. I enjoyed this and would buy again as you can drink one after another.

Bottom Line: Good!

12 oz can poured hazy copper-amber with a sizable bubbly head.

Light body with mid - high carbonation.

Mild but appealing aroma is bready with a hint of fruit.

Little flavor; mostly simple light baked grain but some watermelon too.

O: No serious flaws but still a disappointing, overly mild wheat beer.

(Served in a flute)
A- This beer pours a hazy hint of the lemon yellow body with a thin snow white film supported by a sluggish big carbonation.

S- The clean aroma has a light corn chip hint as it warms.

T- The clean light lagered field corn note leads to a green biter note that lingers. There is a watermelon rind hint that leads to a jolly rancher flavor comes through in the finish.

M- The light mouthfeel has a crisp little fizz in the finish.

O- This beer has an interesting watermelon note but it is a bit harsh in the bitterness in the finish without other flavors to support or cut it.

DATE TASTED: August 14, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: 22 oz. Weizmann... OCCASION: watching The Hobbit as preparation for the school year... APPEARANCE: bright, misty, densely obscure orange body; head is off-white and thick at first, but settles to a few random slivers of uneven strands... AROMA: odd, funky notes that stray from the banana and clove promised... Instead, a sharp, cloying aroma that is musky and somewhat unpleasant... PALATE: fizzy, oily and smooth to the tongue; leaves the aftertaste that holds its dank citric warmth in the end... TASTE: the pineapple is bolstered by pear and apple, with mango and banana also lending service... the overall effect is flavorful, but the pineapple juice is almost crushing and obtrusive in its presence... OVERALL: the Laka Laka delivers it’s pineapple promise, and refreshes with a reasonable levity... Fruit beers are not my thing, and this leaves some rather blunt edges, but poolside, this beer might be in its element....

Poured out of a 12oz can into a pint. Had a great white head and excellent watermelon flavors. I only have one other watermelon wheat beer to compare this to and that's Hell or High and it's delicious. I like having this beer on a summer day.

Eh, not bad, but the watermelon flavor was almost non existent. A much better representation of this type of beer would be 21st Amendment Hell or High Watermelon.

Would Drink Again: No
Would Purchase Again: No
