Slightly hazy orange.. Nice foamy white head shows good retention and splotchy lacing. Everything about this beer screams Jolly Rancher.... Can’t be natural, but still is very tasty... Wheat is more than present and provides a little sweetness that allows the melon flavor to bloom... It was like 90 degrees today, this was pretty nice in the heat.

On tap at Boonie’s on the Avenue. Hazy orange appearance with a white head and a touch of lacing. Smells and tastes like a watermelon jolly rancher. Fruity and sweet, almost too sweet. Kind of refreshing I guess.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste watermelon, fruity, sweet. I thought this was okay. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft in Cincy from notes June 2014. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet watermelon, more candy like than anything. The flavor adds some pale wheat malts, but this is too sweet and artificial.

willisread (723) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 26, 2015
Ezo beer sampler set at fall 2014 Keyaki. Hazy golden color with very little head. Overpowering watermelon candy aroma with a hint of pepper. Taste is watermelon heavy with a hint banana. Wheat taste is there but muted. Sweet on the palate. Easy to to drink but the watermelon is little overbearing.

Strong watermelon candy character. Somehow tastes quite artificial, a bit like a watermelon medicine, kills most of the wheat flavors, not a great balance.

Dogbrick (9357) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Sample at Freakin’ Frog. Hazy orange color with a thin white head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. Aroma of watermelon candy and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of watermelon Jolly Rancher and malt and nothing else. The finish is sweet with an artificial watermelon aftertaste. Below average overall.

Watermellon jolly rancher nose. Hazy amber, thin head. Tart with equal parts of artificial watermelon flavor and wheat, maybe a little more of tge latter as this was pretty beery. Refreshing. I normally deduct points for artificiality but with watermelon, the real thing makes it worse. No deductions, no bonus points.

On-tap at Roundhouse Taproom in SoHo, Central and kindly shared by WheatKing. Thanks, Adam!

Cloudy hazy honey orange colour with some dirt-like yeast sediments; Razor-thin head and soapy white foam which fades in 40 seconds; Small sticky lacing with zero carbonation; Very sweet and artificial aroma of jolly rancher-like watermelon, with light perfume, cream and sugar; Mid to light sweet taste of very thin ale malt, with non-sweet watermelon, molasses notes, bitter hops and light grass; Close to light body, watery palate; Mouth feel is really watered-down, almost non-sweet watermelon jolly rancher. Low hops and mild ale taste, no wheaty tartness. A bit unreal, like a Session IPA infused with fake melon aroma but the flavor does have some fleshy melon taste. Strange… Hoppiness is no aroma, and light grass in taste. Bitterness is notable and quite sharp for a long and quite astringent finish; Quite dry after taste. Very easy and melon-like to mouth.

Comments: There’s is no bottle version for this one. So for a draft, it’s too thin (wheated?) and watery. Yet, aside from the sugary jolly rancher nose, its taste is quite fruity, albeit more on the hard white melon skin than the sweet red flesh. If as a fruity Session IPA, it’s barely okay.
