Pjones6738 (500) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 7, 2004
Pink color, served with a slice of watermelon. Normally, Iím not big on bars putting a piece of fruit in the beer, but at a brewpub, its their beer, and they know how best to serve it. Besides, watermelon tastes good. Sweet, slightly citrusy scent, with a sweet taste. The watermelon worked well in the beer. The normal wheat beer tastes helped to mellow the watermelonís sweetness, and make it nice and refreshing. Not something Iíd drink every day, but I enjoyed it.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JUL 26, 2009
Tap at the Wausau location. Dark pinkish/red color with a light pink head. Lots of sweet watermelon aroma. Flavor was very big watermelon as well, very refreshing and pretty good stuff.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 18, 2007
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.

Wow, really red. This is a very interesting tasting beer, with a slice of watermelon in it. Definatly a new taste, to say the least.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 13, 2004
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.

Skyview (5208) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 6, 2009
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.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 5, 2005
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.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 2, 2004
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.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2007
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.
