With the initial pour, it appears rather thin, colored a clear pale honey-yellow. Thick wisps of a wheaty haze fall as it sits, eventually clouding the entire brew and darkening the color to a more uniform honey-gold – though the thickness remains 0n the thin side. The carbonation is quick and sparkling, erupting as it hits the glass and building a nice 3-finger thick head of thin, lacy foam that sticks around for quite a while afterwards, falling into a gossamer ring and sheer patches as I sip it. While the bubbles seem hardy enough, they refuse to stick to the side of the glass, leaving no trace it was ever there. * * * The aroma is very light, carrying hints of watermelon and fresh-cut rind, minimal hops, faint grainy notes and some wheat malt, but none are heavy enough to make a lasting impression until the beer is near room-temperature. * * * Hell or High Watermelon holds a light body, dry mouthfeel, and moderate semi-spicy carbonation. The clean, crisp authentic watermelon flavor is immediately present at the forefront, and fades into a lighter, sweet melon tang while touches of grainy wheat and malt follow through to the end. The profile of this beer overall is very light, but that doesn’t keep it from being the perfect thirst quencher, especially when it’s 115º outside. As much as I disagree with the current stereotypes of women and (fruit) beer, I think that this could be an awesome first step into the craft beer world for both men and women who are still trying to become interested and want to ease themselves in.

Hey at least it doesn't taste like a jolly rancher. Real watermelon flavor is not easy to come by. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft and 12 oz can many times. Light golden with a big white head. Nose is watermelon and soda crackers. Flavor is crisp, slightly tart watermelon. But still Very good refreshing fruit beer but I wish they would funk some up and do a Watermelon Funk that Vinnie from Russian River did in 2006.

EBD 10/31/15. Slightly hazy golden pour with a touch of amber. Normal head volume, very good retention and poor lacing. OK nose of biscuit and wheat underneath a light watermelon. Heavy light body with a nice smooth texture. Superb carbonation with a nice effervescent burst in the middle and a finely bubbled surge in the finish. The flavor profile is outstanding. It begins with a burst of watermelon flavor that isn’t really sweet, more of a perfect balance with the wheat. Biscuit sweetness is present, but subtly so in a balancing background fashion. Hints of hop bitterness appear in the middle providing contrast. The finish is fairly crisp and a light watermelon rind lingers.

Murky, very pale straw pour. Thinnish white head that’s quickly gone. Nose is sour apple and watermelon. Very light body. Not an overly sweet beer, lots of watermelon and just q touch sour. Not a hint of adjuncts that I can find. Finishes a bit dry, malty, and watermelon-y. Not bad.
