Pours golden yellow with big frothy head. Smells of watermelon jolly ranchers and wheat. Taste has slight watermelon, with sleely american wheat beer yaste. Medium bodied somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Overall a good summer beer with the waremelon flavor covering up the undesirable american wheat beer aspects.,

I'm giving this beer a 3.25 because it tastes horrible out of a can, but is incredible on tap. I live near the 21st Amendment brewery in San Francisco. It's a refreshing light beer, that goes great with onion rings and calamari. This beer is great for a laid back beer that is light on the alcohol, but has the full flavor of a wheat beer. Worth trying, but only on tap.

The watermelon flavor is just a hair above the threshold of detection, to the point that I'm not even sure it tastes like water melon.

First time I tasted this beer was at a brew festival packed to the gills with hop bombs, and my friend and I both spat and poured out our samples of this stuff. It just tasted wrong to us.

Fast forward to today. I recently had a Flat Tail cucumber habanero wheat that was oddly awesome, and I had 3 pints of it. I think I needed that experience to recalibrate my palate for Hell Or High Watermelon. Now that I understand what they were going for, I love it. The mild cucurbit finish blends perfectly with the wheat malt, especially on some of these 108° days we've been having this summer. I went from hate to love with this one.

Huge wheat up front followed by a subtle, yet flavorful watermelon kick. Not very sweet or fruity which lends to a refreshing and drinkable summer ale. It's ok.

Meh. I was not too impressed with this offering. It does taste slightly like watermelon, but more like the white part of the rind than the red watermelon-y part. I give them kudos for the idea, but its really quite a watery, thin, boring beverage.
