16 oz. can. Hazy orange. Smells of watermelon, yeast, some phenols, lemon acidity, and some grassy vegetal aromas. Tastes grainy and a little doughy. Lemon tartness with juicy watermelon sweetness. Wheat finish with some grassy flavors. Medium body. Well carbonated. Not bad. Grassy flavors are weird, though.

Foggy burnt amber with a fluffy convex but short off-white head settling down to a thin ridged ring.

This has a bit of a crabapple and toasted seed flavor. Quite tart, the medium body has a bit of a chew to it that sticks to the palate in a dry cardboard sort of way on the way down. The watermelon is there but gives off a sort of gose flavor that's just continuously seedy with a sort of salinity.

Poured from a tall boy into a Weiss vase, the beer is a slightly hazed, golden coloring, with a thin, wispy, white head. Aromas of tart and sour lemon and white grape must, watermelon juice, and subtle yeasty funk. Smells very sour. Flavors are all watermelon forward, starting with a juice character that transitions into a sour and sweet jolly rancher watermelon. Subtle highlights of lemon add sweet and sour notes, and this all blends on a candy sweet backbone. Smooth and slick bodied, with a slight acidic edge. Tart and sour watermelon aftertaste, again like candy, with a subtle linger past the dry, slightly astringent finish. Really tasty beer.
