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.

thechandler (590) - Charleston, West Virginia, USA - JUL 25, 2015
Poured a hazy yellow to off-green color. Aroma was lightly wheat and watermelon jolly rancher. Flavor was wheaty with a light but definite watermelon tough. Interesting but probably not something I’d buy again.

Metalhead (638) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy straw/lemon color. I stuck my nose in the glass and there was almost zero aroma. Slight short lived head Zero lacing. Taste is light watermelon,light watery wheat. Refreshing it is and goes down way easy but at $10 a six is not a regular.

I guess I was just expecting something a bit different out of a watermelon wheat beer. This one was extremely heavy on the hops and just did not give much watermelon taste OR what I usually expect from a wheat beer. Not something I would try again.
