3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub on 6/22/07: Pours a murky pinkish orange with a thin wispy white head. Sweet candied watermelon aroma has a touch of malted wheat. Body starts with nice thickness and strong watermelon fruitiness balanced with a touch of banana and German yeast before a smooth, lightly sweet finish. A real unique and well-done brew.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at GD - Madison. Poured hazy pink with a short, creamy head. Aroma was of freshly-sliced watermelons with some tangy wheat lurking way in the background. The flavor had fresh, sweet watermelon upfront with tangy wheat and mild spices coming through about halfway.. spritzy watermelon again at the finish. Lighter-bodied with a decent flow to it.. not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at the Wausau brewpub location. Pours a hazy salmon pink colored brew with a thick and fast dissolving pinkish/off-white head that leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of jelly bean with a hint of banana esters, honey dew and some golden grain malt with wheat. Taste is quite sweet with flavors mostly of mellon, some candi sugar, honey and golden grain malt. Finish is quite sweet with a lingering jelly bean and mellon aftertaste.

Pink color with a light pastel pink head. Aroma of watermelon and light malt. Laughy taffy flavor. Comments regarding the brewing method of brewing as told by jewedekind were related to me, and I agree with his rate and comments. The fact that this finishes dry and slightly malty helped me finish this fruity brew. I can see this being quite popular with the fruit and flavored frenzied crowd.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at the Madison location. Bright pink, creamy foam, big lacing. Surprisingly complex and enticing nose of melon, lime, caramel malt and a touch of chocolate. The sweet, acidic watermelon flavors seem to mix uneasily with the sour wheat and reasonably thick maltiness; a failure in some ways, but a noble one.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Just had this on tap last night at the downtown Dane: Pours a bright hazey orange colour with a big bouqet of flowers, fruit and spices. Watermelon, raspberries other berry fruit. Taste was a little too much. Like really too much. Way too sweet for me. And i guess this makes sense to a point, watermelon could be a pretty appealing taste, but it just wasn’t doing it for me. Sorry. Take it easy on the fruit mista!

On tap @ the brewpub (downtown): Poured a hazy pink with no head. Aroma, watermelon, more specifically, watermelon jolly ranchers. Flavor, tastes like a wine cooler, candy, watery. Not very good, but not horrible.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy light pink, like grapefruit juice, with a thin, creamy head that leaves some nice lacing as it goes. Smells like strawberry shortcake, watermelon, yeast and clover. Flavor is thin watermelons, like a diet Snapple. Mild sweetness, easy going.
