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.

Appearance: Somewhat cloudy, muted gold. Large, actively-foamy head that dissipates very quickly. No lacing or residual foam.

Smell: Sweet watermelon, wheat, biscuity malt.

Taste: Simple in flavor with sweet, fresh watermelon taking center stage with standard wheat flavors. The watermelon is not cloyingly sweet or overpowering, it's actually worked into the beer in a very pleasing way. Somewhat watered down, though.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied with moderate carbonation, very drinkable.

Overall: Exactly what you would expect a watermelon-wheat beer to be. Though I enjoy how the watermelon is integrated into the beer, I wish it was more flavorful. This does make a very good summertime session beer, as it is very refreshing and drinkable.

look: 2.25 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 1

Appearance: a light yellow color. good clarity. a huge foamy head that fades pretty quickly

Smell: as soon as i start pouring i am overwhelmed with a artificial sweetness. other smells include a kinda light lager smell

Taste: bad watermelon juice and really fluffy wheat.

Mouthfeel: light and way too sweet

Overall: just plain awful. this beer does not work out in any way for me. I have had many people try it and no matter their beer of preference or level of intoxification every one has said it is just plain bad.
