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.

It is pretty good but it is basically shock top but with noticeable watermelon.

Was actually looking forward to trying it. Kept hearing this was their cool, go to beer... No way. Watermelon rind with domestic lager finish. Grab a Brew Free or Black in Black, those are solid beers.

Not very good. The watermelon taste is artificial.

Quick notes:

Pale yellow brew topped by a nice fluffy white head. Aroma is light and bright: yeast, wheat, pale malt, a touch of citrus, and on the very back-end, watermelon.

Flavor follows, with a much more noticeable, nearly vegetal watermelon presence. Green and sweet.

Very drinkable and smooth; light and lively.

This beer is exactly what it's advertised to be. It's a decent wheat beer with a noticeable watermelon flavor. If that's not what you like, you definitely will not like it.

Really refreshing beer. I can sit back and throw down multiples of these on a nice summer day. There is a hint of watermelon on the nose. The finish is where the watermelon really shows up. It's not forward or subtle but you get the watermelon. Tasty stuff.
