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.

justsayswell (209) - Mission, Kansas, USA - SEP 13, 2015
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.

can, ouch again, jolly rancher watermelon candy melted into water. Very low carb, just candy throughout from aroma to finish. Must be for a younger crowd.

Hazy yellow with faint wheat and watermelon aroma. Pretty light on the watermelon but still gets a little old by the end.

Barreras (1323) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - AUG 25, 2015
Pours a clear yellow color with a distinct watermelon aroma. Taste is purely watermelon with a clean refreshing flavor throughout. A light wheat beer that quenched my thirst but was overwhelming with watermelon.

Average wheat ale with surprisingly good watermelon taste. Certainly is good and refreshing but I imagine it is not to everyone’s taste
