BallyLoser (136) - Redmond, Washington, USA - JUL 19, 2009
Hazy color. Gold. Very subtle melon aroma, the malt over powered it. I felt it had a bit too much of a wheat/ doughy flavor that over powered the melon taste. Would be good outside on a hot day. I expect a small slice of melon served with the beer would make the flavor really pop.

thechandler (589) - Charleston, West Virginia, USA - JUL 25, 2015
Poured a hazy yellow to off-green color. Aroma was lightly wheat and watermelon jolly rancher. Flavor was wheaty with a light but definite watermelon tough. Interesting but probably not something I’d buy again.

sturmthis (892) - Ohio, USA - JUL 20, 2015
12oz can. Cloudy yellow with little head. Wheat and some watermelon in the aroma. Taste has more watermelon, easy to drink. A decent beer for hot days.

Metalhead (638) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy straw/lemon color. I stuck my nose in the glass and there was almost zero aroma. Slight short lived head Zero lacing. Taste is light watermelon,light watery wheat. Refreshing it is and goes down way easy but at $10 a six is not a regular.

BadAprilia1000 (378) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 7, 2015
Pours a nice pale gold. Aroma is of wheat, watermelon, caramel, hay. Taste is of watermelon, bubblegum, spice, slight citrus. Very easy and drinkable beer.

I guess I was just expecting something a bit different out of a watermelon wheat beer. This one was extremely heavy on the hops and just did not give much watermelon taste OR what I usually expect from a wheat beer. Not something I would try again.

July 3, 2015 - on tap at 3 corners. Cloudy yellow pour with some head and lacing. Aroma was grainy and a bubble gummy fruity. Taste was mostly grainy, but had melon in the finish.
