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

Panzuriel (1911) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUN 14, 2013
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.

Amazing , watermelon foward beer is a perfect blend of fruit and wheat. Pair with a watermelon slice and stemmed wine glass.

Cloudy gold with thin white Lacy head; Aroma is of tomato juice; flava is nice balance of sweet earthy watermelon. And dry fresh wheat; feels light with zingy fizz; finishes dry wheaty tangy

teamsale (154) - Washington, USA - AUG 8, 2016
On tap. Pours a hazy cloudy bright sunlight yellow with a thin white head and good lacing. Smells of yeast and lemon. Tastes similar to aroma. Mild bitterness. Leaves an OK aftertaste.

Aroma is watermelon candy.  Flavor is mostly the same, some wheat, malt, and hops.  Not one I would buy again.

Aurelius (5030) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 1, 2016
Almost clear, if not. Very, very pale greenish straw color. Icy white head. Gourdy, low bittering (but it builds.) Slight mineral notes, implied salinity, dry honeydew. Limp body, moderately astringent finish along with muted vanilla at the very end. Meh. On tap, Brass Tap Midtown Tallahassee.

Aggiebob (711) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUL 31, 2016
12 oz can. The color is a hazy straw yellow that was poured with a quickly dissipating white head. Ample carbonation helps maintain a thin lace ring. Light melon aroma and taste that improves as the ale warms.

Dacrza (834) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUL 17, 2016
DATE: July 17, 2016... OCCASION: collecting myself after a great weekend... GLASSWARE: Blanche de Chambly pokal... a discouraging sallow yellow body with an off-white head that flatlines immediately.. a sparse bubble here or there doesn’t endear its appearance any more... faint watermelon and candied sugars on the aroma-- some perfumed hops, though the wheat doesn’t really put forth much in the profile... the body is soft, smooth, with enough effervescence for much of the sip.. flavor is rather one-dimensional, with the promised watermelon not really "hell high," while the sugars are sweet and slightly pungent... lilac and sweet wine too... no lacing throughout the drink... tough to knock a beer that intends to refresh with fruitiness, but there isn’t much to endear this beer to a second can... many other fruit beers out there that deliver a more refreshing, more flavorful profile... one of the few (the only?) 21st Amendment offerings that I have found lacking...
