3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slightly sweet wheat aroma, with a touch of watermelon coming in as it warms. Pours a hazy light straw color, with almost no head. The watermelon is the primary flavor, as it overpowers the wheat. Light on the palate, good on a hot day. Itís a decent beer, and interesting, but I donít think Iíll be going for this one again.

Draft at the brewery tap, San Leandro. Hazed pale yellow / straw coloured pour with a halo of white head. Aroma is light grains, watermelon, flavourings, wheat , doughy. Flavour is composed
of thin light grains, peach and watermelon flavorings. Palate is thin and grainy, highish carbonation. Meh.

Turbid dandelion gold hue. Tart, vibrant watermelon nose. Light and refreshing, with noticeable wheat and the perfect subtle touch of sweet watermelon juice. Rather than tasting artificial, this tastes to me like fresh muddled watermelon. So good on this hot day. Medium-light body, with moderate massaging carbonation and matching fizziness. Crisp and so very drinkable. Maybe the perfect summer beer. Light and refreshing, with a subtle fruit flavor that reminds of Fourth of July picnics.

I was pleased to find that this beer does indeed taste like watermelon, and not something with artificial "watermelon flavor" added for the sake of making it sweeter and more appealing, as happens with candy since watermelon itself is so boring. Itís light in body and in color, and itís easy to drink. Iíd recommend it to anyone who asked about it.

Sometimes itís hard for me to separate the beer from the experience. Thinking of Hell or High Watermelon takes me back to 21st Amendment. The utilitarian decor. The Giants fans filling the space, each holding a glass of this stuff with wedge of melon inside. Sadly, the beer itself is less memorable for me. Wheat malt with a hint of fresh melon. Canít fault it on how refreshing it is, though. Lively, sweet, and smooth. And like all of the artwork by 21st Amendment, Hell or High Watermelonís art provides a cartoonish glimpse at Americana. Itís not one I love, but one-of-a-kind nonetheless.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Starts off smelling like a regular ale from the can. Then in the glass the watermelon comes through a bit. Then in the taste it really comes through, but in a natural way, not a Jolly Roger watermelon candy way. Hazy yellow with a fluffy white head. The body is thin as it should be which makes this very refreshing. A bit of a sour note at the end and lasting watermelon freshness. Great lawnmower beer.

Hey at least it doesn't taste like a jolly rancher. Real watermelon flavor is not easy to come by.

Draft and 12 oz can many times. Light golden with a big white head. Nose is watermelon and soda crackers. Flavor is crisp, slightly tart watermelon. But still Very good refreshing fruit beer but I wish they would funk some up and do a Watermelon Funk that Vinnie from Russian River did in 2006.
