Taste is similar to a mild jolly rancher. Would not try this again

Great wheat and watermelon combo. Crushable on a hot day.

Go buy watermelon vodka if you want watermelon taste. This stuff sucks.

12 oz bottle, then revised with a sample on tap in September 2015.
Hazy golden body with a good head.
The aroma is not as appealing as the flavor which is good and has an actual watermelon note.
I suppose this requires a fairlly mild flavor in order for the watermelon to shine through.
Refreshing.

Appearance: Cloudy yellow with a decent head of foam, a touch of lacing, and quite a bit of carbonation.

Smell: Watermelon Jolly Ranchers.

Taste: Wheat beer, cucumber, with a hint of watermelon.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with a slightly sweet watermelon finish.

The Verdict: Not bad. The aroma was off-putting, but the watermelon flavor doesn't really kick in until the finish. Might make a good middle of summer session beer.

Drinking my first beer from 21 amendment... Not happy. Might as well of cracked a bud light open. Lacked personality, flavor, bite, and so much more. Looks like they mashed a few old watermelons and hoped for the best.

Nearly clear golden yellow with a pile of suds and lots of lacing in the tall Blanche de Chambly glass. Slightly tangy with a persistent but mild flavort of watermelon. Some wheaty taste with a malty flavor. Light bodied but silky on the tongue.

Clean, refreshing, with a flavor of cucumber when you take a sip, followed by the watermelon aromatics. Warm with just a touch of sweetness. I don't know why this is hated so much, by some anyway. But then I hate cinnamon in beer. Thoroughly drinkable. From the 12 oz can purchased at Whidbey Beer Works in Oak Harbor, Washington.

Easy lawn mowing or golf course sipping beer. It's as though you were drinking the watermelon juice at the bottom of the bowl. 2 thumbs up!

L: Hazy straw under a 1” quickly disappearing white foam cap.
S: Light watermelon, fruit, wheat, not a big nose.
T: Starts with a fruit palate and then the watermelon bursts through with some wheat, moderate sweetness and a bitter finish.
F: Creamy, light, refreshing, above average carbonation.
O: I can’t drink a lot of this at one time. Its odd but it somehow works. They deserve some points for creativity.

On tap, fresh with a mild watermelon flavor, not overwhelming at all. Im a big fan of watermelon so many in bias but this is a solid beer with a nice crisp clean finish.
