Can poured into glass gives a large, creamy, pure white head with okay retention. Beer is pale yellow in color and leaves minimal lacing. Smells mostly of wheat, but also has a bit of pepper and some fruity notes.

Can taste the watermelon much more then can smell it. The watermelon flavors go along with, but also do not overpower the wheat. Many fruit/wheat beers seem to have the fruit overpower the beer but this does not. Watermelon flavor tastes very real at first, but finishes a little more sweet, like a hint of watermelon jolly rancher. Still a very interesting beer, and I think they did a good job using watermelon, which I have not seen in a beer before. Mouthfeel is light-medium, and there is a moderate amount of carbonation. Crisp finish.

A: transparent, very light and almost green, lots of carbonation. resembles an energy drink

S: weak but slightly sweet. maybe watermelon? and faint malt.

T: i don't really get the watermelon maybe some rind, some of the bitterness. it's a very mild beer. not very strong flavors. but somehow nice, light and refreshing. as it warms up, the watermelon appears more. slightly sour

M: slightly drying.

O: interesting, I guess fairly good in terms of the flavor but not particularly exciting.

Perfect summer beer. Cool and refreshing. Smooth light wheat taste with great real watermelon after taste. Doesn't have that generic fake watermelon after taste like a candy. No bitterness. Comparable to most light beers in wheat flavor but with the additional summer fruitiness.
