Beer pours from the can into a Duvel glass a clear, bright yellow color with a 1 1/2" foamy white head that soon shrinks to a layer on the top of the liquid, leaving some circles, legs and patches of lacing. Sipping leaves small patches of lacing, but fairly soon the head is basically only a thin island on the surface that seems only to persist because of the effects of the nucleation points in the glass. Toward the end of the beer all the foam is gone.

The aromas include some noticable wheat with a bit of watermelon in the background.

The flavors are much as predicted from the nose except that in the flavors the watermelon is in charge and accompanied by some some light wheat and malt flavor. No detectable signs of hops.

The mouthfeel is on the light side of medium, crisp and initially has a good level of carbonation. The finish is pretty much the same as the rest of the taste with the watermelon persisting to the end when a bit of light bitterness emerges as the mouth feel turns dry but the carbonation is basically gone before the beer.

Overall this is ok for a one time experience but there are other beers I'd find more refreshing on a hot day and would prefer instead. So while this beer is not a disappointment, it's not something I'll buy again or trongly recommend to others.

How is this at a 76/100? How many watermelon beers are there? This is a fantastic brew for a hot summer day. So much melon flavor and nice wheaty mouthfeel.

Straight from the can. You defiantly get that watermelon taste with a wheaty back end. Light taste and refreshing the watermelon defiantly helps. Not bad!

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.
