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.

Cloudy yellow golden color with practically no head.
Predominant aroma of watermelon, wheat, honey, oranges and mild sourness funkiness.
Flavor of watermelons with seeds, lemon tartness and soap. Mildly dry and slightly acid aftertaste.
Light to watery body with almost flat carbonation.
Something quite did not match here, felt to me like a watery watermelon, if that is possible. The flat carbonation didn’t help. Pass.

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.

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.

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.
