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.

On tap @ the brewery during San Francisco 7/7/14 beer tour. Pours a bit hazy yellow appearance with a white head. Served with a watermelon slice. Light cauliflower / stalky herbal, grassy aroma. Flavor is a bit on the sweet side. Some tartness asking with an artificial fruity flavor. Ehhh.

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.

Lots of watermelon, as described. This beer is light and airy. It highlights the watermelon without simply trying to force it into a pale ale. Pretty good.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 12 oz can. Minimal head with a cloudy but beautiful light golden color. Fruit and melon are prevalent in the aroma and flavor. As it warms, some squash-like qualities come out. This is very much a fruit beer that is best ice cold on a hot summer day.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
A- Wheat, yeasty, slight funk.
A- Yellow color, slightly hazy liquid, white head.
T- Wheat, slight funk, slight bitterness, watermelon.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, astringent finish.
O- This was a major let down. The watermelon (and granted watermelon doesnít pack a lot of flavor itself) was not really there. It was more like the rind. A bitterness and not a good bitter either. This was really a bland wheat beer with a tad bit of funk and a very faint watermelon taste. I almost wish the flavoring would have been artificial so the melon would come through more and taste like more than the bitter rind. At least the can artwork is awesome!
