Pours a pale yellow color with a thick foamy white head. Wheat smell with hints of watermelon. Flavor is wheat and watermelon as well. Sweet, smooth, light and refreshing but not particularly delicious though it is better than most canned fruit beers.

Whatup14 (684) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 26, 2014
En fût. Couleur jaune trouble, mousse blanche disparaissant en laissant un voile sur la surface. Arôme de blé, malt, fruité léger, un petit quelque chose de "off". Goût de melon d’eau, acidité légère, malt, astringence, encore quelque chose de "off". Carbonatation moyenne-faible, corps faible.

Pours hazy straw with puffy white head out of a 12oz can. Not much going on...basic American wheat beer. Very slight hint of watermelon in the nose, even less taste. Not sure I would even pick it out if I didn't know it was there. Meh.

Draft at 21A in SF. nose is watermelon (duh), with a fruity flesh aroma. Pour is very hazy, yellow. Minimal white head. Taste is like a jolly rancher but a touch less sweet. A moderate bitterness with a semisweet finish.

Light beer with watermelon aftertaste. That’s about how exciting it gets. Overall not too bad but not remarkable either.

Can. Pale yellow with thin white head. Aroma of wheat and a hint of watermelon. Medium/light body, watermelon, and some astringent drying characters with a wheat finish. Not bad but not great either.

On tap @ the brewery during San Francisco 7/7/14 beer tour. Pours a bit hazy yellow appearance with a white head. Served with a watermelon slice. Light cauliflower / stalky herbal, grassy aroma. Flavor is a bit on the sweet side. Some tartness asking with an artificial fruity flavor. Ehhh.

12oz can from Lowes Foods in Morehead City, N.C. Light straw colored pour, hazy clarity with mostly lasting white fizzy head. No lacing. Wheat aroma. Light wheat and watermelon up front with a light watermelon finish. Lively carbonation, wet on palate. Refreshing summer brew.

Presentation: It was served on tap and poured into a pint glass. The beer menu listed the abv at 4.9%. Appearance: The body has a hazy straw yellow color with light foamy head on top. It’s head fizzled out quickly. Smell: The aroma is fairly light overall. It brings some light wheat malt and white bready maltiness to the nose. It also has nice natural watermelon notes as well as and mild mineral like character. Taste / Palate: It’s lightly bodied and like it’s aroma it has light pale bready and wheat maltiness with a light sweetness and an equally balanced watermelon flavor. Again like it’s aroma it also has a slight mineral flavor note and just a very light herbal hop bitterness in the finish. Notes: This is definitely a hot summer day or lawn mower beer. It’s thin and light making it easy drinking and interesting. It like that the watermelon taste is natural and some candy like flavoring added to a light wheat beer.
