Great brew for its style, no fake watermelon flavor.

A - Pours a hazy yellow with a nice white head that dies pretty quickly.
S - Yeasty
T - Definite watermelon notes, a little sour on the finish.
M - Medium mouth feel.
O - This is pretty good, would be enjoyable on a hot summer day. The watermelon flavor is spot on and not overpowering.

One of the more off-putting beers I've tried.

Hardly any watermelon taste at all. I don't get this beer. Very bland and very boring.

Poured into a tasting glass

A - Very cloudy almost lemonade hue (very strange, yet appealing), one finger very white head and little to no lacing

S - Wheat, sugar, watermelon, citrus, hops, malts/grain aplenty, banana, a clear brisk mountain spring morning, slightly floral and bit of a funk

T - Wheat, citrus, watermelon, sugar, seltzer water, slight hops, pretty malty and tastes slightly like candy

M - Medium to full bodied, medium acidity, lightly crisp carbonation, well balanced, ok complexity and a very nice, slightly on the sweet side yet refreshing wheat/citrus/water melon finish

D/O - Very nice, very refreshing and for the wheat and vegetable/fruit lover alike! Drinkable morning, noon or night. Not much for a winter/fall season(s), yet after a nice day of playing ball or hiking (in any weather) this one will quench your thirst!

Final Thoughts - At $9 a six pack this isn't bad at all. The ABV leaves a little to be desired if you're trying to relax. Refreshing is the word that best describes this one.

12oz can enjoy by 6/30/15 poured into a pint glass
A: Pale yellow, hazy with a one-finger head that quickly settles
S: Muted. Wheat, a touch of watermelon and a hint of lemon
T: More prevalent watermelon, though to me this tastes more like the rind than the juicy parts. Wheat, herbs and lemon are in the background
M: Light-bodied, a touch bitter given the rind prevalence
O: Usually my favorite bite of watermelon is eating the last bits of flesh off the rind. That being said, the rind being the more distinct taste in a beer doesn't work. I'd prefer this with a bit more sweet watermelon & wheat notes than what it has. Somewhat refreshing but there are numerous other wheat beers I'd drink for refreshment before revisiting this

Crisp and refreshing. Little flat at first but overall good mouthfeel that is good for warm weather day drinking

My wife's favorite beer, hands down. It has wonderful juicy, fruity, authentic watermelon flavor that dominates the taste. Sweet & sugary, with a bit of dry grainy wheat presence on the finish that finishes it off your palette.

It is a good summer beer. A little flat up front, but like the watermelon taste at the end. Overall, a decent beer.
