The first thing I noticed was the "not too sweet" taste of watermelon, which works well in a wheat beer. Head retention is not really there and dissipates quickly. Lightly carbonated; almost feels and tastes like drinking fruit juice, but without sweet. I don't know who first created a watermelon wheat beer, but Tin Roof sure did a good job.

I recommend drinking this straight from the can. Refreshingly light watermelon taste. PERFECT for a hot day on the water. But be careful, they go down really easy. I really enjoy this beer.

Had on tap at the brewery.

The beer has a thin white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is of watermelon, malt, and hops. They use Saaz and Mt. Hood hops in this beer, so they bring those expected earthy aromas. The taste follows the nose. The watermelon balances well with the barley and wheat malt. The hops bring nice spicy and earthy balance in the back end that play well with the other flavors. The body is light with low to moderate carbonation. The finish is dry. This is a very good beer.

Pours hazy, caution light yellow in color with minimal head. Taste is as advertised, big watermelon and light wheat. Light tasty and refreshing summer beer. Have had better watermelon beers, but this one is enjoyable.

On tap @ Cooter Brown's.

Pours a mostly clear, pale color with a white finger of head.

Supposedly a hint of watermelon, but I found it quite watermelon forward. Some wheat notes and bready malts.

The watermelon was a more of a hint in the taste. Lightly sweet, somewhat grainy and bready, and there is some tastes of noble hops on the finish.

It's light in body, crisp and undeniably refreshing.

Not yet in cans, but I'll be looking for em. Not bad at all.

Tin Roof Watermelon Wheat has a thick, white, soapy head, and a hazy, orange-yellow appearance, which clouds up even more when the bottom of the can is swished and poured in. There are some bubble streams and a bit of thin lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet watermelon and white bread, and the flavor is of watermelon, watermelon seeds, watermelon rind, rye spice, white wheat bread, hop bitterness, and an underlying white corn grit aspect. Mouthfeel is medium and vegetable slimy, and Tin Roof Watermelon Wheat finishes dry, refreshing, easy drinking, and weird. This oddity is interesting, at least.
