12 oz can. Pours a clear yellow color with a distinct watermelon aroma. Taste is purely watermelon with a clean refreshing flavor throughout. A light wheat beer that quenched my thirst but was overwhelming with watermelon.

I wasn't really into fruity beers before I tried this, but it is easily one of my favorite beers.

Drinkability is what I tend to appreciate most in beers and this beer fits the bill. It's an excellent summer/chilling brew. Unlike other fruity beers, when drinking this brew you still feel like you're drinking beer. Sometimes I worry it's too easy to drink Hell or High Watermelon. I've had it from the can and the tap. Can might be better actually. Either way, I need a keg.

"Enjoy by 6/30/15"; drank 5/3/15 @ the Yarchives.

Poured from a can into a glass.

Semi-opaque dull yellow appearance.

HUGE white head; decent lace.

Watermelon & faint dandelion funk notes in the nose.

Thin mouthfeel.

Clean, crisp watermelon flavor up front; mild wheat funk notes on the finish. Not super flavorful, but this would do on a hot summer day.

Pours yellow, very clear with a wide white foam head, good retention. Aroma is of wheat beer, no watermelon in aroma. Taste is where you find the watermelon, sutil and nice, very good recipe. Refreshing and easy to drink beer.

My favorite fruit beer and one of my summer go to. I think it taste the best on draft but the cans do the job. Awesome in the summer, but I have had it on the winter which was a nice change. Refreshing wheat beer with a good watermelon flavor not the artificial fruit flavor as other beers.

Very nice appearance pouring out as a light straw colored very clear beer. Lots of streaming bubbles and a topping of a white foamy head that does not hang around long.

Smell is like a sweet bread, almost like that great Hawaiian sweet bread you can pick up at the store. Very pleasant aroma.

Taste is extremely light with the watermelon definitely present. Without the watermelon in here this would be a very bland beer.

Mouth is very light and watery with a crisp finish.

This was a very light and refreshing beer. I can see this as being a great beer for the summertime. The beer is very light and watery and has a low ABV so a person could drink a few while out with friends. Since it is in a can this would be nice to take to the pool as well. Another area where this would shine would be at a BBQ. What a nice pleasant beer to wash down those burgers and brats hot off the grill.

Our favorite summer beer. Watermelon is subtle and overall this is very refreshing and sessionable. Only caveat is it has to be consumed ice cold....if you let it sit for a while and it starts warming, it isn't nearly as enjoyable. A winner !

Poured into a Pint Defiance tulip. The body is cloudy and golden, with a white finger head. Aromas consist of wheat, watermelon/watermelon rind, and a bit of lemon, but is kind of faint. Flavors are the same, and are quite refreshing. The feel is medium bodied with medium carbonation, and is crisp.
