Sample at brewers backyard. Hazy straw pour. Sweet aroma of melon, vanilla, slight yeast and green apple. Light and refreshing. Clean finish. On a hot day, this stuff was the bomb. Nice unique offering.

HogTownHarry (6108) - 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 itís 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.

pootzboy (1590) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 15, 2013
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.

Niall73 (1802) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2014
On tap. Pours a hazy orange gold with a white head. Aroma has a light veg edge alongside wheat and white bread. Light body, medium carbonation. Watermelon comes through subtly, wheat, lemon too... Decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Spab (2421) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2012
On tap at the Brewers Backyard. Pours a hazy burnt golden colour with modest-sized white head. Aroma is watermelon, floral and honey. Flavour is likewise. Lightish, slightly watery body. Easy drinking and refreshing.

I liked this one but probably wouldnít have it all the time. Aroma had the watermelon coming through strong. The taste was sweet and tangy like watermelon bubblegum.

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.

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.

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
