COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You asked and we listened. Weíre showing our melons! The backbone of this brew is heavy on the wheat with just a touch of Vienna malt for complexity. We add real watermelon to our tanks during fermentation, leaving a fruity essence on the back end. German hops balance the fruit perfectly in this wheat ale for a slightly dry, extremely refreshing finish.

Can poured a clear gold with a small lasting white head. Aromas of wheat, light yeast and a hint of watermelon. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of wheat and light watermelon with a crisp finish.

Aggiebob (279) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Can: Golden color with a small white head. The aroma is wheat and only slightly fruity. There is a sweetness from the Vienna malts that isnít bad but the watermelon is very faint.

Can. No watermelon here -- but there is a small amount of diacetyl. Fruity wheat flavor. Soft sweetness throughout. Refreshing, but needs more watermelon and a little quality control.

HIGHB4LL (835) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 16, 2015
12 oz. can from Cash Wise in Watford. Appearance: finger white head, golden color, clear, ok lacing. Aroma: heavy watermelon, wheat, light grassy hops, undertones of darker fruit. Palate: light body, average carbonation, slightly dry finish. Taste: sweet watermelon upfront and following through, with some wheat coming up, and light grassy hops on the end, but watermelon lasts throughout. Overall, surprisingly decent for a watermelon beer really, sweetness is not cloying, not too crazy, decent beer.

golden pour with thick off white head. a lot of earthy notes with a hint of watermelon. light body that went down smooth, and dry on the palate. drinkable but nothing over the top.

Wheat beer with jolly rancher watermelon candies. Not great but definitely drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sonnycheeba (4232) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Can. Pours clear golden amber. Aroma is watermelon, cereal malts, light wheat, faint floral notes, and faint corn. Flavor is malty and slightly sweet with a touch of watermelon that comes through at the finish as the beer dries out on the palate. Light body.

rumproasts (4130) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 15, 2015
can. Dirty golden with one finger head. I canít say I detect any watermelon. Wheat beer with an indistinct bitterness that seems a bit rindy. Quite underwhelming. Now that I see itís brewed at Stevens Point, it all makes sense. Never had a good beer from that place.

razzanof (71) - Leavenworth, Kansas, USA - MAY 13, 2015
From a can. Pours a yellowish-green hue with minimal head. Aroma is off putting. The beer is billed as a watermelon wheat - I certainly didn't taste it. Rather it was a malty, flat lager taste reminiscent of a bad homebrew. I don't use the term "drain pour" often but this is one of them. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is medium sweetness and mild watermelon. The flavor is watermelon, mild/medium cloying sweetness and a slightly sour/tart finish.
