Lubiere (9752) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2012
A hazed amber ale with a thin white head. In aroma, a sweet caramel malt with light melon notes and light vanilla. In mouth, a sweet biscuit malt with hops and fruit skin harshness, cloying watermelon juice, OK. On tap at Session 99, June 23 2012.

Sammy (8359) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2012
On tap at the Brewer’s Backyard event. Nothing in the smell, but a syrupy infused sweet flavouring joined in the wheat. Not too drinkable.

JoeMcPhee (8313) - 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.

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 I’d 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 Caplansky’s, 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 don’t 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 Brewer’s Backyard event, Brick Works, Toronto

Flavor and Palate : Strong watermelon fruity notes. Easy going summer like feel. Soft bubble gum hints. Grainy, zesty finish.

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2012
June 23, 2012 - draught at "Session 99" - session #2. Pale and hazy gold-yellow with thick plug of tightly foamy white head (4-). Aroma is simple - a little "uric" - lightly acidic, it has light melon character and some suggestion of funk - at least it’s not sweet (7-). Up-front you are hit with terrific fresh watermelon, only a hint of lemon, perhaps a tiny bit sweeter than the aroma and just a whisper of floral bitterness - but the problem is all that fades extremely fast and you are left with ... not much. Light bodied, frothily carbonated, quick-finishing, leaves a little bit of a dry bile-sourness .... needs more malt oomph and I could wish for more sourness, too.

swoopjones (5611) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 8, 2013
draft at Bar Hop, Toronto. Not bad IMO. Jolly Rancher watermelon flavor & aroma, medium bodied. Refreshing & nice summer beer

[5393-20130525] Tap. Light fruity corn aroma. Slightly hazy, orange body with a quick foamy white head. Light bitter melon flavour. Medium body. Average. (6/3/5/3/10) 2.7

solidfunk (3605) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 24, 2013
This isn’t 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.

Ontbeertaster (2306) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2013
Tap, clear golden pour, aroma is watermelons. the flavour was very sweet and a bit tough to finish becuase it was so sweet. Not quite my thing, but i can see its appeal
