Can

Pours hazy lemon gold, white head dissipates to nothing.

Smells of wheat, melon and citrus.

Tastes wheaty and notably melony, on the lighter side.

Lighter body with tingles of carbonation on the tongue.

Light, highly drinkable. Not exceptional but interesting. Good session candidate.

Pours a hazy golden-orange color, with a minimal amount of fluffy white foam. Not much going on in the nose here, with the exception of the watermelon. Not so much fruit, but more like a watermelon jolly rancher. A little sweetness on the palate, some light wheat, but again mostly the somewhat cloying fake watermelon taste. Nothing special here, just a decent light beer with fake fruit flavor.

Poured into a Pint Glass.

A - Pours a very light straw-yellow with a fluffy white head that quickly recedes, leaving a slight haze on the surface.
S - Aromas of sweet malt, wheat, citrus, and just a little bit of watermelon. Smells slightly tart and lactic, almost Berliner Weisse-like.
T - Tastes...like watermelon. Not too bad, actually, the watermelon flavor seems fairly authentic, not too Jolly Rancher-ish. More sweet malt and wheat make up the backbone.
M - Thin and watery with fairly crisp carbonation.
D - On a hot day this may not be too bad. Not really my thing, but I can see what they were going for.

21st Amendment- Watermelon Wheat

A- Light clear yellowish orange with a small filmy head.
S- Tangy watermelon with wheat and light sugary grainy malt.
T- Light and sugary sweet watermelon with a grainy malt body and a lemony wheat finish.
M- Watery with a dry watermelon malty body and a slight dry grassy finish.

Overall- Not bad. A good summer afternoon beer. Easy to drink.

Appearance:
Looks like a hazy coors, little head/retention. No lacing.

Smell:
A little tart/sour citrus with a touch of watermelon. Not 4 loko, but still a noticeable fruitiness. Smells a little like Mac and cheese...

Taste:
The watermelon is as prominent as is the wheat. A touch of tartness, but mainly the watermelon comes through strongly.

Mouthfeel:
Fairly light bodied beer that has inadequate carbonation by the end. It does have an interesting, watermelon-like aftertaste.

Overall:
This is totally not a mid-winter drink but I'd probably appreciate it on the beach in the summer. A little bit too light of a wheat beer but it's not terrible either.

Pours a hazy gold with eggshell white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of grain and wheat, slightly metallic. Not sure if I'm getting any of the watermelon, maybe faintly. Taste follows the nose, grainy up front with a little watermelon sweetness on the middle of the palate. Finishes slightly metallic. Mouthfeel is on par for a 4.9% wheat beer. Overall, very crushable, drinkable, but not something I would reach for. In terms of a 21st Amendment session beer I will go for Down to Earth.

Light gold color. A light bodied wheat ale. Fruit flavor is very subtle, its there but masked. Very smooth taste. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is neutral. A good wheat beer, but the melon taste is not really noticeable
