12 oz can was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer quickly. It is a hazy pale yellow with some vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Tart, bready, and sweet malts with a faint watermelon aroma.

Taste: Same as above. Bland with a tiny hint of watermelon.

Mouthfeel: Light, refreshing, a little chewy, and low carbonation.

Overall: Not too shabby for a warm weather beer.

Pours pale gold in color with a big white head. Smells of typical wheat beer aromas with a little soapiness and some watermelon. Flavor is light and crisp with apparent, but not overwhelming watermelon notes. I like this, it's unique but well executed. Good summer brew.

Purchased in a six pack/can from a local bottle shop.

Appearance is typical for a wheat beer: cloudy and off-white/golden.

Watermelon is muted to low appearance. Muted lemon flavor to flat.

Honestly, this beer would probably be better if re-imagined in a Gose style. It lacks the salt-metallic base notes that would bring the watermelon forward in a fresh/true form.

Okay as a wheat beer, but for the price you can purchase a better fruit/wheat beer.

Overall, it stops just short of being refreshing.
