Interesting flavor. Not much smell. Refreshing summer beer.

A: pours a hazy straw yellow into an American shaker pint with a solid finger of fluffy white head that leaves some spotty lacing.

S: Wheat, sweet light malts and a hint of watermelon. some floral hops.

T: Heavy on the wheat and noticable light malt backbone, comparable as good to a hefeweizen and with the addition of the subtle watermelon that slowly takes the tongue by surprise makes this beer stand out.

MF: What we as advocates should come to expect from a light summer beer; refreshing, light soft body and good effervescence.

O: This has slowly become my favorite "tubing down the river" beer by beating out Butternuts Hefe. The can makes it portable while the lower ABV makes it great for having a bunch while floating and staying coordinated enough to scale the muddy hill back to the car. I wouldnt get this for much of any thing else except maybe a hot day on a boat or maybe a company picnic.

Source/serving: 12oz. Can

Smell: Moderate watermelon notes which boarder on candy-like but not quite. Salty, toasty, and lightly herbal and earthy.

Taste: Overall, lots a caramel and not your typical wheat flavors. Intense caramel just as it touches the tongue which them moves to straw and bread malts up front with a thin, slightly bitter edge. Hints at grape. Tons of caramel in the middle. Smooth but not too sweet though. Tropical fruits in the background. Finish is quite thick with light caramel, bread and long lingering yeast.

Purchased as a single from Whole Foods in Shortpump - Glen Allen, VA - poured into pint glass

Pours a yellowy straw color, decent head.. but mostly unattractive. Smells kind of pissy in a way and there is a faint scent of watermelon seeds.. not so much watermelon but like when you accidentally chew on a seed. Tastes kind of pissy and watery in a way. Again the watermelon flavor is just not there at all other than a faint after though of a seed. Feels okay as far as body goes but the pissy watermelon seed garbage is kind of in the way.

Overall I would advise against this beer. I would love to try some of this brewery's other offerings as I have heard some good things. Hopefully this wont affect my perception of their other brews.
