Snow white head, very light straw in color. Lots of wheat on the aroma with a subtle amount of watermelon, there is almost a tartness to the aroma.
Wheat on the front of this beer that quickly transitions to watermelon. This lasts for a few sips and the intense flavor of the watermelon dissipates. This is a very bright and crisp beer very light mouth feel . This beer at the start has a candy like quality to it. The watermelon is a little strong at the start but this subsides quickly and the beer has this nice light fruit flavor to it.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle in weizen glass.

A: Slightly hazy golden-yellow with a white head that falls quickly without much lacing.

S: Straw, watermelon, and a little malt in the nose. Sweet, but not in a candy watermelon way like other watermelon beers. The wheat smell is slightly offputing without the aid of spices most often found in wheat beers.

T: Wheat and a light fruity watermelon flavor that tastes very fresh. One again the wheat gives a straw-like impression, however, reminding me somewhat of a Triscuit or Shredded Wheat.

M: Similar to the Opa-Opa Watermelon in mouthfeel, a very light crisp beer, but leaving a residue in the back of the mouth.

D: For its type, the beer matches up well with others, but the grainy taste and smell leaves a little something to be desired. Crisp and refreshing, and miles above many other "lawnmower" beers, but nothing quite worthy of the massive praise it often recieves on certain beer podcasts.

from a 12 oz. can into a weisse glass

hardly any head, no lacing, clear pale gold...nose is pretty disappointing, a little watermelon but mainly just some dull graininess, taste is better with the sweetness of the watermelon and some round melon and cucumber notes, as well as a little wheat, the feel though disappoints, lacking any kind of crispness or snap...undercarbonated.

Most of this sixer was out of the can, but I saved one to pour in a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about thirty seconds leaving barely any lacing.
The smell definitely had the watermelon with a decent fair kick of wheat at the end.
The taste followed the nose with the kick of wheat giving off a fuller quality about it.
The mouthfeel was about a medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed appropriately styled for the American wheat ale style.
Overall, honestly, it's just an okay kind of beer. Nothing special but nothing bad.
