12oz can. Poured out a slightly hazy, orange color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled of watermelon, cantaloupe and honey dew. Very sweet tasting with lots of watermelon and cantaloupe favor.

12 oz can into Stella goblet.
Very nice cloudy golden look leads to exactly what it says, watermelon, cantaloupe and honeydew. Taste follows noaw. cantaloupe seems stronger. Feel is light. Overall, it is what it is. Very good fruit beer and an easy drink. May consider it again for a summer drink.

This was different than most watermelon beers because. Of the melon added. It didn't taste artifical,could still taste the base beer which wasn't bad at all. The melon flavor washed out the watermelon a lot but that was ok as it still produced a unique and flavorful beer

From an aluminum can, this brew is a fruity, melon-bomb. The beer is a light, hazy, whiteish-yellow beer. The head is slim and the aroma is outrageously melon. Serious fruit...all sweet, sugary melon. The taste is moderately sweet, and flavorful. Enjoyable brew.

Interesting... but overall doesn't work for me. It's light in color, looks as if it would be a nice, summery ale. Lots of melon in the fragrance. Pretty nice. But then, the flavor. At first, there is a fair amount of melon-like taste, but not at all sweet. It's not bad. Unfortunately, after the beer has left the palate, there is - for me anyway - a distinctly unpleasant rind-like aftertaste. I don't know how else to describe it other than melon rind but with absolutely no hint of sweetness. That aftertaste is a deal breaker for me.

Super light color with a nice head. Smell is outstanding Mellon. Super Mellon taste up front. So light it gives a bit of sharpness at the end. If you like fruit beer, this is a great choice.

A thanks to the founding father of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a bright golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is cantaloupe up front, honeydew and watermelon in the background. Taste is tart, mixed melons, dry, more sour than I expected. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.

Bug aromas of cantaloupe and honeydew in the nose. Look is pale gold with frothy white head layered lacing. Taste is full.of fresh cantaloupe and watermelon and basically those are the dominant forces. Extremely refreshing, just wish that the hops had just a tad bit more presence. Great summertime beer and awesomely sessionable at 4 percent abv

Very clear light golden color with two fingers of foamy white head. Tons of visible carbonation! Lacing down the glass as I drink it.

The smell is bready and fruity sweet. Picking up a lot of melon fruit smell in this one. The smell is very sweet on that fruit.

Taste has some watermelon flavor along with some other melons. Kind of a chewy white bread taste also.

Mouth is thick medium with a lingering finish.

A sweet fruity beer that really tastes like a malted fruit beverage. Lives up to all of the melons that they put into it for sure.

Bought a 6-pack cans Don Quiojte $8.29
Sme of melons
Slightly hazy light golden color
Light mouthfeel
Medium cabonation
Light melon taste, wheat, kind of thin
Overall just an ok beer. The light taste doesn't do it for me. Wouldn't buy again.
