2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a clear hay yellow with a frothy but lasting white head and lively carbonation. Aromas of lemon, mint, white wine, pepper and a bit of banana. Taste is bright citrus up front before a weird minty, toothpaste-like note pops out. Lightly crisp finish with a gentle minty aftertaste. Couldn’t detect any watermelon at all. Has potential but rather muddled in the end.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2015 Bottle from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. Pours a hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is slight banana, clove, watermelon and sherbet. Body is light with medium carbonation. Taste is quite sour with slight mint characters. Has lots of zest and spice to it as well and plenty of clove spiciness. Overall was quite refreshing.

Hard to mark this one - totally out of my comfort zone - jarringly tart sour hit upfront - get the watermelon - distinct vanilla aftertaste - interesting for a change but not my style.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I loved this, the fresh melon flavour leaves a fruity after-taste, which makes me want to track it down in my area.

I believe that this could have benefit from a few more IBU.
Not to my personal taste, but I should not discount it as a result of this.
