If you don't like watermelon, you prob won't like this beer either. Crisp, refreshing with more than just a hint of watermelon. Quite delicious.

Hazy golden color. Quite lively when poured. OK aroma-somewhat yeasty and wheat like. Moderate level of fruitiness. Rather chemical and industrial flavor. While it might be described as "watermelon" I find it to be more like tasting the rind or pith from one. Not overly unpleasant but just does not work. OK body for the style-crisp finish. A bit of a dissapointment. I would tend to think a watermelon beer would be hard to pull off-they didnt get there with this one for sure.

Pours a hazy gold with eggshell white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of grain and wheat, slightly metallic. Not sure if I'm getting any of the watermelon, maybe faintly. Taste follows the nose, grainy up front with a little watermelon sweetness on the middle of the palate. Finishes slightly metallic. Mouthfeel is on par for a 4.9% wheat beer. Overall, very crushable, drinkable, but not something I would reach for. In terms of a 21st Amendment session beer I will go for Down to Earth.

A- A hazy, yellow beer with some floaters and a thin, splotchy white head.

S- White bread and a sweet, indistinguishable fruitiness. Not as potent of a watermelon punch as I was expecting.

T- Sweet watermelon and bread with caramel. A tad tart at the end.

M- A carbonation bite, but the sweetness keeps it refreshing.

D- A great warm weather beer. This has been on my "to try" list for awhile, and it doesn't disappoint.

Almost three finger of fuzzy white head has huge popping bubbles that turn rocky as it slowly fades. Body is a hazy golden straw colored that truely glows when held to light. Nose has tones of citrus, honey dew, fresh dried wheat and sassafras. With first sip you sit back and see that there is this juicy hint of melon that bursts onto the palate. Some pale rustic hops join with the soft wheat feel that leaves a consistent mellow hue on the mouthfeel. the fruit in this one is more like watermelon rind. Super clean and nicely drinkable. Would make a wonderful summer beer.
