Tastes more like the rind of a watermelon; not sweet and fruity at all. You'll either love it or hate it

Light golden color with a slightly fizzy appearance. Bubbles hugging the glass.

Aroma of mostly wheat, not picking up much else.

Taste: faint watermelon, its more noticeable in the finish. A bit of sweetness, crisp finish, not dry.
Honestly, not a bad fruit beer.. normally I hate them but this great for a summer day or beach beer.

I’m a sucker for fruit beers and really don’t look at the ratings or reviews beforehand. Picked it up for a party and nobody had any of the six. Have been wanting to try this for some time now, but kind of think I will be disappointed.

Poured a yellow, golden, clear color with 1-to-2 fingers of off-white, fizzy head. Lots of bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. Minimal wet lacing. Minimal retention. (Sight - 2.75)

First thought on the smell was not much watermelon. When digging in got vomit, hay, grassy hops, hints of watermelon, corn, bread, earthiness and Cheerios cereal. (Smell - 2.75)

Tasted a bit better than the nose, getting that watermelon first. Not as potent as Ballast Point’s Watermelon Dorado and I kind of like that in some regards. Also got candied Jolly Rancher candy combo of watermelon and strawberry, honeydew melon, hints of cucumber, grassy hops, hay, manure, Cheerios candy and bread. (Taste - 3.00)

Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt finish. OK for the summer I guess. (Feel - 3.00)

This just didn’t do it for me. Bummed that nobody had this 6-pack that I bought for my daughter’s party and I now have to drink the other five. (Overall - 3.00)
