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 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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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. Itís 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: Itís lightly bodied and like itís aroma it has light pale bready and wheat maltiness with a light sweetness and an equally balanced watermelon flavor. Again like itís 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. Itís 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.
