On tap @ bent elbow - a hazed straw-gold color in the glass, 2 finger frothy white cap...modest retention, medium carbonation. Sandy mouth feel, light refreshing character. Aroma is fruity, hoppy and has the signature dusty wheat maltiness. Flavour has melon, tart bright fruit and sturdy hopping riding just above the biscuit malt....clean crisp hoppy finish. Fruity refreshing.

draft at Bar Hop, Toronto. Not bad IMO. Jolly Rancher watermelon flavor & aroma, medium bodied. Refreshing & nice summer beer

2013-05-25. Crisp golden body small white head and lace. 3+ Aroma is modest, fruity, notes of watermelon with cidery undertones. Flavour is moderately fruity, nice watermelon notes, modest pale malt base has a light graininess to it that I am not partial to. Comes together a bit strangely though, and the watermelon character is about half as strong as Iíd like. I think the malt has actually taken over a bit too much relative to the initial test batches. Average plus bodied palate, modest carbonation. Just okay. 6/3/6+/3/13 On tap at Caplanskyís, Toronto

2012-07-02. Lightly hazy dark yellow, small white head. 3+ First sip has a lot of sweet fruity watermelon character, light pale malt/wheat behind that, light bitterness in the finish, alternating with watermelon in the aftertaste. Light alcohol feels a little more warming than I expected, but I donít know the abv, and its not obtrusive. Mild aroma, mild fruity watermelon, mild pale malt with a lightly grainy wheat like character to it. 6+ Average bodied palate suits it. A pretty decent effort at what they are trying to do with it. Enjoyable. 7/3/7/3/14 At Brewerís Backyard event, Brick Works, Toronto

I couldnít resist; Iíve never had a watermelon beer. On tap at Lancaster Smoke House. No aroma to speak of (none that I could detect, anyway). Clear yellow. Taste is a mix of "light golden ale" and, surprise: watermelon candy. Drinkable, but not something Iíd bother to get again.

solidfunk (6999) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 24, 2013
This isnít bad overall. Pours golden clear with no head or lacing. Watermelon actually works pretty well with wheat, but watermelon being watermelon, its a little watery. Watermelon is there in any case, and it finishes sweet and sour. Pretty fizzy carbonation. Tap at Bar Hop.

JoeMcPhee (9244) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2013
Pale golden pour with a thin white head. The aroma is a bit malty with some light sweetness and a bit of odd esters in the aroma. The watermelon is quite expressive and a little bit fruity. As it warms the yeast derived fusels come out more and distract from the watermelon fruit. This really intensifies as does a sort of dull sweetness. A good idea as a summer quaffer but could have the fermentation cleaned up.

JesseM (1158) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2013
On tap at Imbibe. Yet another pointless Ontario fruit beer based on a wheat ale. This one has an okay watermelon nose and not a fuck of a lot else going for it. Flavour is incredibly subdued, with a mildly unpleasant rough dryness in the finish from the wheat. Tasted artificial at first but maybe that was the lingering Neustadt Saur-Kraut lager on my palate. Kind of a colossal waste of time for absolutely everyone.

Alpha10 (558) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 11, 2013
2013/05/11 - Pours a clear, pale straw color with a thin white head. Aroma is wheat, watermelon, slight hay and metal. Taste is a sharp, sweet watermelon candy up front with a wheat and metallic aftertaste. Mouthfeel is thin with refreshing carbonation and a drying finish. Lacks balance. Interesting idea with a poor execution. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kensington Watermelon Wheat Yeah smells like beer and watermelon. Very different. Tastes like you would except. A slightly citrusy wheat with watermelon. I either really dig It or donít like it at all and I canít decide. Itís very different. Unlike say a pumpkin ale which when I tried one for the first time I fell in love, I do,my hate that love at first sip going on here. Itís growing on me though.
