A - Cloudy light golden pour with a high white foam head. Soapy lacing on the glass.

S - Has a strong wheat aroma, and certainly a faint smell of watermelon rind. slightly too candy like (think Jolly Rancher) but better than others I can recall.

T - Typical witbier profile more than what one would consider a fruit beer. Light grains give a nice base to a beer that is refreshing. Finish hits the mouth with sweetness of watermelon that is pleasant although maybe a bit too sweet.

M - Has a wheat germ grottiness to it. Leaves a sweet finish that would make it not sessionable to me, but likely for others. Clean beer.

O - Not bad and a good summer beer. I just don't see this being anything special.

Slightly hazy light gold/straw colored body. Lots of carbonation. Crisp white head about two fingers thick. Recedes to a thin white lacing. Pretty decent for style. Head disappears completely.

Very light aroma of cracker like malt and a subtle watermelon (candyish) aroma. Like a wheat beer with a watermelon jolly rancher dropped in. Sweet cereal grains in the nose.

Remains a very refreshing beer with a great watermelon flavor (even if somewhat artificial) that is not overly sweet, and still slightly resembles beer. Pretty good execution. Light watermelon hints in the finish and aftertaste. Not dry, but pretty clean finish. Great level of carbonation. Medium bodied. Not excessive carbonation but definitely on the more appropriate side of full carbonation. Wheat malt comes through in the beginning. Clean, cracker like. Good flavor. Excellent.

I think this beer is great. With summertime arrived, this is a great beer for drinking by the water. Pretty approachable by everyone, and it treats the fruit wheat beer category right.
