A wheat ale with watermelon, enjoyed on tap at World of Beer.

Cloudy apricot color, with a frothy head of pure white that settles in for the long haul.

Smells like a watermelon Jolly Rancher. Mild wheat sweetness beneath, but an overpowering tart watermelon aroma. Might be a little artificial, but I dig it.

Lesser tartness in the flavor, with a good amount of mild wheat sweetness. Big dose of watermelon juice, like a Jolly Rancher dropped into a hef. Lingering fruit sweetness.

Medium-light body, frothy, mild carbonation, good amount of fizz. Mild hop bitterness on the sides of the tongue.

A good one for the ladies. A fruity flash with good sweetness, and it's much better than any other watermelon ale I've tried. Couldn't drink a full glass of it, though.

Candy watermelon smell that would invite any child to guzzle this down. Taste is immediate overpowering of watermelon that I thought would be tart due to some of the aroma but isn't really and finished nice and even a bit dry. An interesting brew from Mudshark that I wouldn't hesitate buying for a hot, outdoor get-together (maybe for those who aren't too much into craft).
