A classic American wheat beer using fresh watermelon. Straw-colored and refreshing with a kiss of watermelon aroma and flavor.

This is some terrible tasting stuff, IMO. Light golden body with a white head. Watermelon rind, dirt, and bread in the nose. Taste is light watermelon, yeast, and lots of earthy tastes. Not good. Drain pour.

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 itís 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 itís 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. Itís full flavored but light bodied w/ vigorous but gentle carbonation. Fuck it, I didnít want to like this stuff but itís 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 canít 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.

12oz can. Pours murky golden with a fizzy white head. Not overly carbonated. Aroma is of wheat, watermelon, and not much else. Taste is of watermelon. A lot of watermelon. Not artificial watermelon, either. There is also wheat. Not much else. Lingering juicy watermelon taste. Very light, but not watery. Aas it warms up, it starts to taste like a jolly rancher. Not horrible, but not something Iíd want to revisit.

Can and served in nonic pint glass: Straw yellow with fizzy head. Grainy and DMS issues, weak watermelon on the watery palate. Meh... maybe when it is 90 out could I enjoy this... likely not.

Hazy yellow pour with white head. Sweet citrus, wheat, watermelon aroma. Light malt body, more watermelon than I anticipated but not offensive. Decent combo, works together just not my favorite style. I had this about two years ago straight from the can, definitely better out of a glass on a warm day with a burger. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

At Rockwells. I get it but it just isnít my kind of thing. Was it made well for the type? Maybe but someone more into this would be the better judge. Serving: Tap

UPDATED: APR 11, 2015 Light and crisp. Flavor is ok but nohing to rave about. Mildly sweet melon flavor with a slightly bitter finish. My one friend summed it up well by calling it a high class bud with melon flavor. Not what I look for in a wheat beer. Decent beer that could be quite refreshing on a hot summer day. I personally prefer other wheat beers that I will be counting on over this.
