COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This wheat beer is a traditional German heffeweizen flavored with just a hint of all natural watermelon. Made with more than 60% wheat, noble German hops and fermented using a Bavarian yeast strain. Note the banana and clove flavors imparted by the yeast. This is a very refreshing beverage, at about 4.8% abv, perfect for any hot hot summer day.

Bottle from brewery. Clear amber with white head. Aroma of wheat and watermelon. Taste of strong wheat with a hint of watermelon towards the end. Very carbonated. Not for me, but a lot of people seemed to enjoy it. Makes for a nice summer beer.

22oz Bottle, poured at Real ales for Hope - Providence, RI. Served with a watermelon ball. Aroma is a strongly artificial watermelon (green) blast. Flavors ruin me. The watermelon ball is pretty good, I suppose. Otherwise, an insane amount of sugar and sticky, varnish-like watermelon fake flavoring. Ugh. For a watermelon wheat, this is a pretty darn alcoholic Jolly Rancher. C’mon.

Pours with a three-finger white head that vanishes leaving no lace. Hazy amber color. Light carbonation and light bodied. Watermelon nose and flavor is sweet watermelon, hops are in background. Hot summer day ale. $4.55 for a 22oz bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

Watermelon is the worst fruit flavor to put in beer. Im not even sure where the watermelon flavoring comes from as it just tastes like fake candy watermelon. The description says a hint yet its the overwhelming characteristic of the beer. For the mikes hard lemonade drinkers.

A wheat ale, with all the glory a wheat ale has mixed with jolly rancher juice. Not for me but I’m not a horny blonde co-ed

Pours a golden color with a thick white head. Aroma is of malts, hops, watermelon, yeast, and spices. Flavor is of malts, wheat, rotten watermelon, lactic, and corn. Leaves a nasty, want to be, watermelon and malt finish.

Poured from the tap into a plastic pint cup. The color is cloddy and is a bit yellow like a hefeweizen and other wheat beers. The smell is a bit wheaty at first. Some slight hoppiness to the flavor and a little fruit flavor in the background. The taste is mostly wheat at first with a touch of hops. Just as the beer is going down a nice watermelon kick comes through the last of the beer. A nice sweetness that is leveled out by the wheat flvaor. The feel of this beer is and light. Makes for one great summer beer. It has a great taste and is pretty drinkable.
