I poured this watery beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. Not cold enough! The beer was a pee colored concoction but did poor a really pretty big white head. i was hopeful. Slight watermelon smell first then kinda sour smell. Worried. Slightly cloudy looking also. The beer was VERY watery tasting. Kinda like watermelon kool aid that half the flavor packet had not made it into the mix. I will not buy this beer again.

Poured a finger of head on a hazy, light straw colored body.
The aroma is interesting. A bit of grain and watermelon. Not bad, just interesting.
The taste has a soft, almost water and wheat taste at first. The there's the mild watermelon sweetness.
The texture is soft with moderate carbonation.
As far as watermelon beers go it's the best one I've had. Simple flavors and easy drinking.

12oz canned on 3/11/2013. Served in a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pale yellow color with a little over a finger of a white soapy head. Body is hazy with some visible sediment floating in the glass.

Smell: Wheat, melon, some yeast spiciness, hint of wet grain and yeast spiciness.

Taste: Same as the nose, only slightly more assertive. Melon and melon rind are the most notable, followed by wheat and yeast spice. Not complex, but what's there is pleasant.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, crisp and refreshing. Medium carbonation.

Overall: In a world full of mediocre fruited summer wheat beers, I feel like this does at least stand out a bit from the crowd (if for no other reason than the use of watermelon). I thought the melon worked well with the wheat beer base. Not excellent by any means, but if I'm looking for something refreshing on a hot day, I'd definitely get this again.

Ew. Smells like starburst and formaldehyde. Ended up drain pouring this one. The taste will haunt my dreams for years to come. Wheat mutilated with rotten fruit and unnecessary sweetness. Also had a twinge of acidity on feel. Gross
