Single can from Trader Joe’s , Downers Grove. Popping the pull tab on another brewer that’s new to our town. Right off, though, the aroma does not offer much to thrill, just a base malty smell that has some trouble making itself known. Body is hazy gold, matching an American wheat style, with a puffy head that kicks up easily. Redeems itself in the taste, though. A milder version of a zesty wheat malt beer, but there it is, that background of Watermelon juice. Juice flavor is use a little bit sour; not like a Jolly Rancher, but, well, more like a slice of Watermelon that’s sat outside for an hour. But that’s what makes this beer what it is. Can has an "Enjoy by 6/30" on the bottom, so it should be nice and fresh. But then, it’s a lighter, summer beer that offers something different, and considering how "thin" the actual flavor of watermelon is, they’ve actually managed to make this stand out as one of the few successful production versions of the rare "Watermelon beer."

This is a very interesting take on a summer wheat beer. Smells like a pretty standard wheat beer on the nose but you get a ton of the melon in the taste. This type of beer 1 is good to try but not a 6 pack session type of summer beer which is the reason I would buy the style.

12 ounce can. Cloudy pale yellow gold color. Small bubbly white head. Lemony wheat malt nose has a hint of watermelon. Upfront flavor is pale wheat with more lemon and watermelon. Light and refreshing. Thin bodied and lightweight.

Smells like a nice wheat ale, without much of the watermelon. Very light golden color. Watermelon flavors come out at the front, with sort of an off aftertaste. The wheat ale flavor isn't too apparent up front, but you can tell in the back end that it's a wheat beer

For some fruit beer brewed at Cold Springs, this is incredible, which means it’s pretty darn good by any other standard. This is slightly cloudy orange golden in color w/ a short lived head but a good amount of lace. The watermelon in the nose is the prevalent aroma but it’s not all Jolly Rancher sweet, more of a rindy cucumber thing w/ a touch of a floral note. This comes off as a little sweet but that is mostly due to it having subdued bitterness and it brings out the more fruity aspects of the watermelon and a bit of wheaty malt. It’s full flavored but light bodied w/ vigorous but gentle carbonation. Fuck it, I didn’t want to like this stuff but it’s a good beer that transcends the novelty of adding watermelon.

This 12 oz can would be better served had I left it in the store. Pale yellow color, white head. Floral aroma, tastes like a melon. This is this, light body, not much carbonation and an astringent soapy finish. Other than the artwork on the can, I can’t think of anything good to say. Just not my beer.

Pours a merky gold. Nose is rathe blah. Big melon taste on the front end, typical wheat finish. Good for what it is, nothing special. Would be well served at a summer party with watermelon to brave BMC kids looking to branch out for the first time.
