Had this on tap at MonkeyPod in Maui. A typical fruit beer. I didn't have much of it as it was my wife's drink. Its Okay at best. She liked it more

I have been looking everywhere for this beer. I had this at a bar after a long bike ride, and it was super refreshing! I hate fruity citrus beer but the watermelon had a light undertone and still had a nice light beer taste, not sweet at all. I feel like they balanced this beer very well, but would have loved to taste more hops. I'm super sad I can't find this anywhere else! I'm a huge fan of Lost Coast, this beer only made me fall in love more!

Slightly hazy orange.. Nice foamy white head shows good retention and splotchy lacing. Everything about this beer screams Jolly Rancher.... Can't be natural, but still is very tasty... Wheat is more than present and provides a little sweetness that allows the melon flavor to bloom... It was like 90 degrees today, this was pretty nice in the heat.

On a super hot day this might rule. In January it's like shock top and jolly rancher watermelon collide.

Had on draft from Left Coast Burgers, Seoul, Summer 2016.

This is a very good summer beer.Light crisp wheat with a good amount of sweet watermelon. Great on a hot day.

Pours a cloudy maize color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Slight retention and poor lacing. Smells of strong and distinct watermelon, sweet malt, hint of hop, and slight floral notes. Fits the style of a Fruit / Vegetable Beer. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong and distinct watermelon, sweet malt, hint of hop, pale malt, hint of earthiness, and slight floral notes. Overall, weak appearance, watermelon is clear and dominates both aroma and body. There is still somewhat of a balance, so not simply a watermelon juice.
