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.

12 oz. can

Pours hazy foggy gold with a dissipating frothy white foam head. Smells like fresh wheat and watermelon, with some floral earthy herbal grassy pine. Tastes like sweet candied watermelon, bready crackery wheat, with floral earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels medium-light bodied, creamy and smooth with moderate low carbonation. Overall a nice watermelon wheat beer.

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!

12 oz. can poured into a tulip style pint glass.

In the glass it has hazy golden orange body with a fast fading one and a half inch white head. The head ends up as just a crown of micro-bubbles but it leaves nice lacing.

The nose is pretty weak, minimal wheat malt and a light fruity ester that opens up to watermelon hard candy as it warms. It tastes of wheat, slightly sweet malt and watermelon hard candy, not the actual fruit. Bitterness is very low but there is a small amount of hop character. It finishes rather clean. Mouth feel is light with medium carbonation but rather soft. There is a small amount of astringency on the tongue that comes with the finish.

This is better than I thought, refreshing and easy to drink. Although I enjoyed this it has not converted me to a fruit beer lover.
