nice light golden color with a dry finish. When I was at the GABF this is what everyone was talking about.

Let me say first, that Iím still far from being a brett fan. I guess itís an acquired taste; way too sour for me right now. But this beer is a really nice brett gateway. For one, it isnít overloaded with brett; just spiced with it. Second, watermelon works very very well with brett--if youíre unfamilar with brett think cidery sour; so this beer is watermelon with a sour kick. Works very well together. And a perfect craft beer for a hot day.

Legend has it that this beer was brewed as a goof, but quickly became so popular they make it regularly. Itís a light, refreshing wheat with distinct watermelon juicy undertones. Slight rind on the nose. Youíll either love this beer to the point of wanting to marry it or youíll moan in disgust of its very existence. Rated 4/10/10

Pours a lovely, hazy, banana yellow color, with a thin white head. Light barley malt, citrus esters, and a bit of watermelon. Mouthfeel is close to perfect. Thin, crisp, and wet. Very subtle watermelon flavor that accentuates the mildly sweet wheat malt. I really love this sessionable beer.

pours a lightly hazy golden-yellow, straight out of the can. pink-ish tinted head retains well and leaves ok lace. nose is a pleasant, vaguelly subtle watermelon, over some light graininess. such a nice smell natural watermelon has, vs. the crappy watermelon extract I have smelled in other beers. flavor is dry, with a balance of "wheaty-ness" and fresh watermelon. a bit of clean bitterness in the finish. really nice.

The beer has a funky water Mellon aroma mixed with wheat beer notes. Appearance is a pink murky yellow-ish colour. Flavor is wheat with some tart watermelon notes.

On tap and in can. This is by far one of the MOST refreshing drinks in the spring/summer. I question a lot of the negative reviews as most hop-lovers prefer the more "substantial" brews. Watermelon is a mere hint on this one...flavors are more complex than one would expect with a summer wheat.

Draft, served with a small wedge of watermelon: Poured a thin white colored layer of foam; nice hazy pale gold color. Virtually no hop nose, just a wheaty boquet paired nicely with a lush watermelon aroma. Started with a crisp effervescent acidity and a dry toasty maltiness. Subtle watermelon flavor soon followed and carried all the way through to the finish and into the yeasty-bready aftertaste (let it sit on your tongue for a while and it takes on a pleasant mango like character). Hop bitterness was noticable but low enough to let the watermelon come through. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a lively, effervescent carbonation. With watermelon as the featured ingredient this brew may come off as another novelty fruit beer at first glance but it worked surprisingly well. The watermelon flavor balanced nicely with the toasty wheat malt character which was complimented by the crisp acidity and refreshingly effervescent carbonation. A most enjoyable summer quaff.

Mine and Portland Drunk's comments seem to be out of tune with everyone else. We both enjoyed this at OBF 2003 and it seems like the beer was in perfect shape that day.
A firm sweet watermelon and wheaty nose plays well into the light watermelon body and very refreshing watermelon finish. It is not dry and grainy like so many fruity wheat beers, but rather extremely well balanced and forthcoming.
Portlanddrunk also hit it on the nose with watermelon jolly rancher!
