This is the best watermelon wheat ever made or even "fruit beer" for that matter. It nails the smooth flavor of a wheat beer and follows it up with a subtle but flavorful watermelon vibe. Not too much, not too little. Just right. Another amazing beer from 21st Amendment!

I always look forward to the summer and this beer.

I drank this straight from the can while peddling the CyclePub to a brewery - after work...

First, this is a perfect combination of a fruit and beer - the soft watermelon hints pair perfectly with the wheat style. It is amazingly refreshing during a hot day (or while peddling to a brewery). Great level of carbonation too! I would highly recommend this beer to any one...

Easy lawn mowing or golf course sipping beer. It's as though you were drinking the watermelon juice at the bottom of the bowl. 2 thumbs up!

in the past couple of weeks i've had it out of the can directly and poured it into a glass.

It pours a very nice light yellow with a small white head.

Smells of summer to me, with a hint of watermelon and a nice yeasty fresh smell.

Taste is perfect, you get a hint of watermelon as you drink it, other than that its got some nice spicing with the wheat and overall is just an amazing beer for hanging out bbqing and enjoying summer/warm weather. This is my new favorite summer beer.

Great light mouthfeel, with just enough kick to get your mouth excited.

Drikability is amazing. I could sit there and drink this all day absolutely fantastic.

I wasn't really into fruity beers before I tried this, but it is easily one of my favorite beers.

Drinkability is what I tend to appreciate most in beers and this beer fits the bill. It's an excellent summer/chilling brew. Unlike other fruity beers, when drinking this brew you still feel like you're drinking beer. Sometimes I worry it's too easy to drink Hell or High Watermelon. I've had it from the can and the tap. Can might be better actually. Either way, I need a keg.

Excellent beverage. Poured with a thin head, and awfully murky, which put me a little off at the beginning. After smelling the bouquet though, it's like smelling a fresh cut watermelon. I was afraid that this beer would taste like a watered down fruit drink, but it stays true to its roots! Very light watermelon taste brewed for a fresh summery cookout. Highly recommended!

I had this beer both in a can and on-tap.

The freshest and most refreshing watermelon beer. It's not fake and its not too sweet. If you're looking for a beer, choose something else. But if you want a watermelon delicious-ness (thats still a beer), buy one.

An all-around good drinking beer. Great watermelon aftertaste. Very smooth and clean. This is a perfect beer for the beach.
