Draft -pours cloudy pale yellow. Aroma is watermelon bubble gum. First sip reveals refreshing, light watermelon flavour with a lingering sweetness. Aftertaste is watermelon bubble gum juice finish. Dry.

Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 23, 2014
Draught, St Augs. Cloudy tan, with an appetizing watermelon aroma. Taste is sweet, good watermelon character but then it finishes mostly yeasty. So right when it needs a clean, refreshing finish it does a 180 into yeast sludge. Argh.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 30, 2014
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Murky blond color with compact head. Light aroma of wheat. Simple wheat beer, with very low bitterness, no watermelon, instead an evident hazelnut flavor.
Not offensive.

Masterkush7 (504) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 7, 2014
Hazy golden pour. Aroma is yeast, spice, citrus. Body has normal Wit flavour with the additional flavour of watermelon. It tastes pretty artificial to me, ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Marheb (1997) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 13, 2013
Aqueux et sans saveur avec une légère acidité. Malgré une base de bière de blé assez timide, j’ai peine à détecter le melon...pas besoin d’en dire plus.

pours hazy pale yellow with a small white cap, some retention and lacing. fruity and lightly sweet malts, wheat, oranges, coriander, spices, phenols, chalky, (maybe) a bit of melon in the finish, although it seems a tad articial. moderate to low carbonation, light body - watery, short bland herbal-citrusy finish. forgettable. DP.

Not much notes on this one... (Not much to be said, too). There was no head, no lace, no body.... I mean, it was really watery like taking a bite off a watermelon so that is pretty good I guess... Taste was light, aroma didn’t push me into taking notes either. Meh, not "bad" but definitely not good.

Bottle (355 ml). From Fonduevoodoo. Clear yellow/golden with a small white head and light lacing. Aroma is arficial and perfumy with melon and light spices. Taste is also kind of artificial and perfumy and about the same as aroma. Some acidity from the wheat. Light to medium body. Medium carbonation. Watery. Until I’m proven wrong, I think that Watermelon’s beer are just a bad idea.

Hazy golden pour. Aroma is yeast, spice, citrus. Body has normal Wit flavour with the additional flavour of watermelon. It tastes pretty artificial to me, but it’s still decent.

Tap. Hazy golden with small head. Sweet wheat ale with mild watermelon. Odd, but not bad.

A good summer beer. Bittersweet that it’s seasonal beer. Get it... bittersweet. Hardy, har-har-har.
