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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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...
