3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hell or High Watermelon pours a slightly hazy light golden with virtually no head to speak of. Nose is light crisp hops with a faint fruit aroma, likely melon. Taste is an interesting blend of dry and tart fruit essence with more familiar wheat beer elements. It has an aspect that reminds me a little of cucumber as it is used in a california roll. Body is lightly fizzy. This beer finishes cleanly with just a hint of wheat malty, earthy aspect. very different. Not at all what I expected. quite refreshing.

Pours a clear effervescent light golden color with one finger yea that quickly dissipates. Aroma is primarily malt, bread, hint of watermelon. Taste is prominent watermelon, but only slightly sweet. Mildly better. Medium bodied.

Can. Pours crystal clear pale golden, small fizzy white head, dissipates soda-fast leaving a touch of lacing. Aroma is wheat, lemon, watermelons. Flavor is light sweet, lots of watermelon and some light bitterness as well; kinda metallic. Light body. Meh

Tried on draft in UFC in Woodside. Liked it so much, got a six pack. Tastes much better from draft. Much less flavor in the can.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can,bonused by Mike - thanks. Pours murky, nearly opaque, gold with short lived head. Aroma of watermelon (laffy taffy style) and odd funk that makes me think of overripe fruit on a hot day. Taste: lightly sweet, unpleasant funky something going on amidst the harsh toasted wheat. Mildly bitter finish, lingering unpleasant aftertaste. Body is thin, and this feels much like watermelon in that the aroma seems bigger than the melon-tinged taste. Overall: can’t say this is a beer I’m likely to order, even on a hot day at a BBQ, even with no other choices. Then again, at a BBQ I’m likely to skip the watermelon, too, so this may not be surprising.

"i’ll give them props for trying a different fruit, and that lends a certain uniquness to the beer, but it’s a pretty thin, boring beer. I agree with the last reviewer’s jolly rancher comparison. it wouldn’t be a good wheat beer on it’s own, but the level of uniqueness (and possible refreshment on a hot day) still intrigue me a bit. 8/12 revisited - better than I remember on the wheat side and more subtle on the fruit. Change in the beer or my palate? Raised a couple tenths."

On tap at the pub. Cloudy straw. Thin body. Light sweetness. Melon aroma. Simple but interesting.

12 oz can pour. Pours a super light yellow color with a sweet fruit aroma to it. Really light, easy drinking brew with some nice wheat touch and a watermelon flavor that is closer to bubblegum than a true watermelon fruit flavor. Not saying it’s bad. Sweeter side this beer is. Flavorful for sure. Decent beer here.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a pale yellow-orange with a thin white head which fades to very little lacing. Aroma is light and is of wheat bread, sweet malts, faint watermelon, and some light citrus. Taste is about the same as the aroma but has more water melon and light hop notes. Has a medium-light body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, mostly sweet, medium finish. Overall, a decent fruit beer that is pretty unique.
