This is better than say, Heavy Melon by New Belgium but not very good or noteworthy. Artificial watermelon up front that fades into this grainy soggy frankenberry flavor. Kinda pissed I got a whole pack but I knew what I was getting into with this brewery so it is what it is. Basically another dud from here for me.

Poured from a12 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of sweet watermelons. Taste is watermelon, less sweet than the aroma, wheat is present, easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a unique and decent beer.

Translucent gold with slight orange tint. One finger of white head, that leaves a thin ring and no lacing.

Smell is watermelon, that of candy, soda, juice, etc., not exactly fresh watermelon.

Taste is watermelon, slight dry bready flavor, and an unfortunate finishing flavor that comes across as artificial sweetener.

Feel is light, with moderate carbonation tingle.

Overall, that artificial sweetener flavor kills any enjoyment that I might have gotten from this beer. It had some promise, but didn't quite deliver. Glad I only got a single, as I couldn't even finish the one. Next!

Pretty straightforward artificial watermelon candy flavor with some decent malts to balance. Nothing too offensive just super gimmicky. Not sure I would revisit.

12oz can poured into a snifter

Pours a clear golden color with a pink hue, one finger foamy white head. Smells of gusher candies, watermelon candy, passionfruit, a hint of sweet malt. Tastes of watermelon juice, gummy rings, a hint of sweet malt. Medium-light body with moderate carbonation, foamy mouthfeel and crisp finish. I very nice summer time session ale

From the bottom of the can: "BEST BY 10/05/21 LKW21095073838FL"

Appearance: The body of the beer is a medium-dark shade of amber. It has a thick, whipped cream looking head that is slightly off white. Good retention and lacing.

Aroma: It smells orange slice gummy candy, and a bit like cotton candy at times. There is a bit of peach that comes through from time to time as well.

Taste: Up front it tastes like gummy worms. Towards the middle it tastes like artificial sweetener and wheat. The wheat character is pretty nice but there's a strange artificial sweetener character which is off-putting.

Mouthfeel: It has a thin body that is light and feels wet overall. Carbonation feels a tad low for the beer.

Overall: The can states that this is a "SESSION ALE WITH NATURAL WATERMELON FLAVOR." The beer doesn't smell or taste like watermelon at all, whether it's a real watermelon or a Jolly Rancher. This beer smells like orange slice gummy candy and tastes like gummy worms for the most part. What really kills the beer is this odd artificial sweetener flavor which is completely out of place in a beer. There is a light bit of wheat character which is nice but as a whole the beer was a swing and a miss. I wouldn't drink it again and I wouldn't recommend it.

Pours a light clear amber. Slight watermelon aroma. A nice sweet watermelon flavor. Fades quick. Not bad if you like watermelon.

Pours clear, gold in color with one inch head.Taste is big watermelon, rind, rosewater, and wheat. Light bodied, slightly sweet, high carbonation. Nice straightforward watermelon beer. Not as sweet as I would have expected. Really easy to drink. Nice warmer weather beer.
