Poured into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a light, slightly hazy golden amber with a one finger white head that dissipates slowly to a thin cap. Aroma of melon (smells a bit more like cantelope, actually) and light wheat. Flavor is sweet wheat, watermelon (distinct in the flavor) with hints of caramel as it finishes slightly dry with light grassy hops. Light bodied, as appropriate. A pleasant surprise, I was not expecting much from this combination, but the light watermelon add a delicate fruit sweetness to the wheat which worked quite well. I would definitely think about this for lawn mowing. This would have been too light for a witbier, but delivers exactly what it advertises as a watermelon wheat.

Interesting taste but not enough so to buy again. The smell is about average not very intriguing. The taste is beerish with a nice blend of watermelon fruit lasting in the end - almost like a light beer with a watermelon jolly rancher mixed in. 143 Calories per can with 4.9% ABV.

Pale and light yellow color with a light haze. The head is whispy and lacks longevity.

It's not very aromatic, but it has wheat, lemon, and watermelon.

It's tastes exactly as I expected. Whet beer with watermelon. The watermelon is very distinct.

Light body, but crisp and refreshing.

There's not much to this beer yet I feel like I enjoyed it more that my scores would suggest. To put it in context I'm grilling and sweating and it's hot as Hades out here. It was quite quenching.

Canned on 3/26/12 drank on 7/7/13

Hazy, light yellow colored beer with a momentary fizzy white head. Poor retention, no lacing.

Fresh watermelon in the aroma. Some sweet, fruity yeast. Faint malt sweetness, and no hop aroma. I like this beer's aroma quite a bit. It's different.

Fresh watermelon in the flavor. Funky (not sour). Smooth, and creamy. Some malt sweetness, little to no hop flavor.

Medium bodied beer with an extremely smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Delicate carbonation. an average length wet finish.

I understand this beer may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I like it a lot. If you're looking for a good, refreshing summertime lawn mower type beer, this may be right up your alley.

Pours a pale straw color with a thin film of head. The nose has yeast and fruity notes. This offering is super light (too light). The dominant flavor is light fruit accompanied by a fake sour essence that is not terribly pleasant. The finish is semi-dry with more tangy sourness. There is not much flavor here in general.

Hazy light straw color. (Served with a wedge of watermelon on the glass at the brew pub).

Watermelon, citrus, yeasty, pink grapefruit, toasted white bread, grassy.

Soft round notes of cereal, citrus and yeast on the palate. Fairly four-square with a clean, lactic finish.

Medium- bodied with a slightly watery texture.

Refreshing with the watermelon, but fairly simple and needing a little more texture.

(Tasted from sampler at the brew pub).
