Can. Firstly, the new can for this beer is the coolest can I have ever seen. Such a kick ass design. Anyways, I am really shocked at the poor score on this one. Sure, it not huge, barrel aged, sour as tits, or EXTREME in any way, but it is beautifully subtle. It reminds me a lot of DFH festina. If only they did make this more tart... it would be absolutely top notch if they did. Subtle watermelon on the nose and flavor, and in no way artificial tasting. Overall: very solid, light sessionable beer that I will be enjoying this shit out of the summer heat.

A remarkably unimpressive beer. Not much of an aroma just a hint of grain, pours a cloudy pale caramel color without much head. Subdued taste just hints of grain and a barely perceptible taste of watermelon. Medium body with no real finish.

Whoa this one is bad. Like literally hard to drink, and I’m not one will just pour a beer out and give up. Weird, weird green tea almost matcha but not good matcha taste. Tastes like some weird sweet something. I can’t even figure out what it is. I’d proceed with caution.

Little aroma. Very light mouth feel. However it's as refreshing as can be. Hot days plus this = good times. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Pale yellow with some haze. Watermelon aroma and flavor. A little sweet with a touch of malt character. Interesting beer but not sure wheat and watermelon should coexist.

Pours hazy yellow with no head retention or lacing. Tastes extremely of watermelon. This is just ok, but would be ideal for a hot day. A great summer beer!

Light, clear yellow. Highly carbonated. A little sour. A hint of watermelon if you think about it.

SHIG (3879) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - MAY 10, 2015
Can: Poured a carbonated bubbly yellow haze, with a white head. Aroma is fruit and wheat. Taste is a nice subtle watermelon that melds well with some wheat. Very wet and refreshing.

Single can from Trader Joe’s , Downers Grove. Popping the pull tab on another brewer that’s new to our town. Right off, though, the aroma does not offer much to thrill, just a base malty smell that has some trouble making itself known. Body is hazy gold, matching an American wheat style, with a puffy head that kicks up easily. Redeems itself in the taste, though. A milder version of a zesty wheat malt beer, but there it is, that background of Watermelon juice. Juice flavor is use a little bit sour; not like a Jolly Rancher, but, well, more like a slice of Watermelon that’s sat outside for an hour. But that’s what makes this beer what it is. Can has an "Enjoy by 6/30" on the bottom, so it should be nice and fresh. But then, it’s a lighter, summer beer that offers something different, and considering how "thin" the actual flavor of watermelon is, they’ve actually managed to make this stand out as one of the few successful production versions of the rare "Watermelon beer."

This is a very interesting take on a summer wheat beer. Smells like a pretty standard wheat beer on the nose but you get a ton of the melon in the taste. This type of beer 1 is good to try but not a 6 pack session type of summer beer which is the reason I would buy the style.
