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.

Poured into a Pint Defiance tulip. The body is cloudy and golden, with a white finger head. Aromas consist of wheat, watermelon/watermelon rind, and a bit of lemon, but is kind of faint. Flavors are the same, and are quite refreshing. The feel is medium bodied with medium carbonation, and is crisp.

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

This is a delicious brew. I would turn this on to someone who doesn't have much experience with the hoppier craft brews but wants to develop their palate. It has just hints of fruit and is very crisp and refreshing...an excellent hot-Summer-day brew!

Hell or High Watermelon wheat ale 4.9%ABV's 17 IBU's
Look: golden, hazey, white head, lots of carbonation
Smell: watermelon, wheat, malts
Taste: watermelon, wheat, citrus
Mouth: light, thin, crisp, refreshing
Overall: This is a tastey, good smelling watermelon ale. I don't think it comes across as a heftier sort of wheat beer. The body is slightly light for a great wheat ale, but the watermelon comes through and tastes nice.

Tastes more like the rind of a watermelon; not sweet and fruity at all. You'll either love it or hate it
