Pours a pale cloudy straw with a barely present fizzy white head. The aroma is light with both yeasty esters and watermelon. The taste is a nice crisp watermelon flavor, not sugary but refreshingly sweet. A nice light body with a little bit of carbonation. A great summer beer.

Good beer for the summer. Didn't expect to have hops and melon pair so well. Very light taste and good feel.

Looks like I am in the minority on this one. I like this as a simple summer session beer.

Very light , nice watermelon after taste. Great hot day beer. After 2 though the what was great turned into an ok beer. Very wheat like but the initial watermelon taste becomes a bit bad of an aftertaste.

From the can marked enjoy by 8/31/2015. Sampled on July 3, 2015.

It pours into a tall Pilsener glass a light pale yellow color with a quick lasting fizzy white head.

Yep, I pick up a few slices of watermelon in the aroma with a more subdued wheat malt character. Some thin spice.

Light body.

Again, like the aroma, watermelon is vibrant in the flavor with a slightly fade wheat note and a mild bitterness to finish. A good one to have on the beach.

What is up with all the hate for this beer?

Love the wheat and watermelon combo, works perfectly and is the best summer, poolside brewski!

a: a light straw color. a hint of pale orange. fizzy white foam on top

s: lemongrass, wheat, coriander, saltwater toffee, watermelon. interesting

t: watermelon juice right away. refreshing. sweet caramel, lemongrass, wheat, grainy, sweet tea

m: lighter side of medium. high carbonation. pretty fizzy

o: its refreshing, but i'm not sure watermelon is my top choice of flavor to put in beer. its not "bad" it just seems that the flavors don't quite harmonize together in here
