A: Light yellow. Light foam. Small bubbles, strong lace. Didn't seem like a wheat beer.
S: A slight bit of raisin was all that I could detect.
M: Hollow foam at the back, bitter at the front but no lasting bitter.
T: Watermelon right? Wheat beer right? So there was a bit of watermelon, but weak as well as the wheat profile. Slightly sweet, and almost a hint olive oil. I'd say this was more sour than bitter.

O: An odd concoction that would be refreshing on a hot day. However fans of fruit beers probably wouldn't find watermelon a flavor to love, unless it was more candy like and pronounced. I'd look elsewhere.

Something also on trade...this one a fruit, which I normally don't get a chance to try much. Pours a cloudy pilsey yellow with almost no head, and little lacing. Smells sweet, and green, and floral. Taste is interesting, different from many other fruit beers, surely some watermelon, but only hints. An interesting approach to a fruit beer and one that I was happy to try. Easy drinking, and not bitter and light. Carbonation is only low-moderate. Fun to try!

The color when poured into a glass was a hazy light yellow with hardly any foam and not lace at all on the side of the glass. The smell of yeasty citrus was evident in the aroma. The taste had of a bitter yeasty watermelon, that was not a pleasant feel on the palate. This is not what I would expected from the beer company. Not one of their better brew's.
