Pours clear gold into a Sam glass. Bright white head quickly recedes to hug rim. Jolly Rancher Watermelon aromas. Thin with sweet watermelon juice from front through the middle. Mild bitter banana peel finish.

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

LilBeerDoctor (3370) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2009
Draft at ACBF09. Pours a cloudy yellow-orange with a white head. Aroma is mostly wheat malt with some yeast, clove, and sweetness. Flavor of sweet watermelon like a Jolly Rancher. A little artificial tasting but still quite nice. 7/4/7/4/15 (3.7/5)

auerbrau (3126) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - MAY 6, 2012
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.

jimhilt (2377) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 21, 2011
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.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 17, 2010
22oz bomber. Pours a hazy orange color with a small white head. Head recedes and leaves a small film. Nose is honey and clove, some light banana esters. Palate is medium bodied with a nice playful palate and a clean finish. Flavor is light honey and pepper with a hint of watermelon that feels natural and not forced. Quite refreshing and easy to drink without being watered down.

halfonit (1130) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 12, 2011
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.
