Smell and taste similar to a German pilsner with a mellow but obvious watermelon bite lingering in the after taste. Great lace in tulip glass. Beer is thin but the feel matches the smell and taste. Solid beer.

Nothing new to add, everyone already knows what this beer is about. Had it at a small restaurant. Would be hard pressed to differentiate it from any macro adjunct beer. Thin and flavorless.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.5

Look - Pours a hazy straw yellow color, a thin ring of white head quickly dissolves, no lacing.
Aroma - Watermelon, mineral water, hard candy.
Taste - Watery, thin crackery malt, watermelon like the aroma, mild sweetness, a bit of grain. Aftertaste is fairly mild with lingering melon flavors.
Feel - Light bodied, very watery, drinks more like a watered down fruit juice than beer.

Overall - It's alright but not something I'd have again. More juice than beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Poured from a can into a Lagunitas mason-glass.

L: Cloudy light golden pour. 2 fingers of foamy white head. Modest lacing.

S: Watermelon. Lots of watermelon.

T/F: Follows the nose. Mild grain/wheat background with a lot of watermelon flavor. Maybe a bit of lemon citrus in there as well. Fairly 1-dimensional. Not much yeast character for a wheat. Medium to thin in body. Good carbonation. Finish is melon and sweetness.

O: If it's really hot out and you want a watermelon flavored beer... then you might enjoy this. Not my cup of tea... but they did get a lot of watermelon flavor into it. Interesting but one I'd pass on in future.

This is one of a 15 can sampler from 21st amendment that I tried this past week. It probably is a nice refresher on a summers day, It is pale in color and a fair pour on the head. as for taste and aroma... the smell of melon and that distinct wheat aroma is there, but the taste of melon is more on the lines of the rind and not the fruit. There is not much to this to comment on this beer, because it just didn't hit the right melon patch for me... sorry I may give it another try on a hot summers day.

Slightly cloudy, but light golden pour with a one-finger head. Aroma of just enough watermelon to entice you to drink, and whem you do, fantastic. Very light bodied. The watermelon taste is in okay enough to not dominate, a nice wheat beer.
