Aroma: Fantastic watermelon aromas, some fruity esters from the yeast, and some sweet aromas from the malt. Appearance: Very hazy pale straw color. Good fine head on this one. Taste: Not as malty as one would expect and the bitterness was too low. The watermelon and yeast flavors really overpower everything else in this beer. Palate: The watermelon really leaves an aftertaste in your mouth, hard to judge a whole lot else in the beer beause of how strong it is. The carbonation seemed appropriate though. Overall: A great summer beer, but very heavy on the watermelon and yeast flavors. I would like this beer better if it was more balanced with the wheat and a little more bitterness, and knock the watermelon way down so it doesnít overpower everything else you taste. Too bad because I love almost every other 21A beer.

A light fruit beer. I guess itís OK if youíre into water that sort of thing. I guess itís OK for a day at the beach. Beyond that, not great. Just ok.

On tap at April Brews Day, pours a cloudy blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out crisp watermelon and nothing else. Flavour is along the same lines, with crisp watermelon notes dominating. For what it is, itís quite nice. Solid.

Type: 12-oz. can Glass: Modern Times willybecher pint glass From: Barons in Alpine, Calif. Price: $8.99 for a 6-pack Purchased: April 22, 2016 Consumed: April 23, 2016 Misc.: Enjoy by June 30, 2016 Iím a sucker for fruit beers and really donít look at the ratings or reviews beforehand. Picked it up for a party and nobody had any of the six. Have been wanting to try this for some time now, but kind of think I will be disappointed. Poured a yellow, golden, clear color with 1-to-2 fingers of off-white, fizzy head. Lots of bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. Minimal wet lacing. Minimal retention. (Sight - 2.75) First thought on the smell was not much watermelon. When digging in got vomit, hay, grassy hops, hints of watermelon, corn, bread, earthiness and Cheerios cereal. (Smell - 2.75) Tasted a bit better than the nose, getting that watermelon first. Not as potent as Ballast Pointís Watermelon Dorado and I kind of like that in some regards. Also got candied Jolly Rancher candy combo of watermelon and strawberry, honeydew melon, hints of cucumber, grassy hops, hay, manure, Cheerios candy and bread. (Taste - 3.00) Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt finish. OK for the summer I guess. (Feel - 3.00) This just didnít do it for me. Bummed that nobody had this 6-pack that I bought for my daughterís party and I now have to drink the other five. (Overall - 3.00) 2.93 68 C

Light smell of watermelon and cereal....taste isnít as sweet or bold as expected... The watermelon flavor is light...like someone took a blowpop and swirled it around in a neutral beer for a bit...the beer base doesnít shine in any particular way...lightly cereal-y...drinking faster enhances it..one dimentional

Overall, an interesting beer. The watermelon doesnít overpower it, this tastes like a wheat beer, with a slight to moderate hint of watermelon. Not much in the smell department, but I can forgive it that to an extent. Itís a nice beer for warm weather if you donít want something íextremelyí sweet or hoppy.

Draught. Cloudy, yellow color, rich white head. Light, fruity aroma. Fruity flavor with hints of watermelon and white toast. Medium-light body, medium carbonation. Not bad.
