tough to make watermelon work in a beer, and they have done a nice job keeping this from being too sugary, but the watermelon seems more like a candy or a juice drink than a natural piece of fruit, and so its odd in a very light and mild wheat brew. this is cool when its ice cold and super hot out, even cool in a celebration where you might spray beer everywhere, but for contemplative beer drinking, it leaves a bit to be desired. they cant all be intellectual projects though, and so we have to appreciate this for what it is. its a really easy drinking, not too sweet, light bodied, highly carbonation fruity but not too fruity, wheaty but not too wheaty summer brew that has plenty of capacity for refreshment. i reckon its a little underrated on here, the juicy watermelon goes well with the pale wheat, and its fermented down pretty clean. right from the can at a music festival or out on a boat or something is where this one belongs. one of the better large scale watermelon beers i have had to be honest, but i must confess the field is a little weak. appealing for one or two, less so beyond that.

Great Summer Beer. Goes down smooth, has to be enjoyed fairly quickly as it contains watermelon.
