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.

On June 20, 2015. At Parallel 49, in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Hazy golden color, white head. Light acidic, spicy taste, also fruity. Fruity aftertaste. Fizzy mouthfeel, low bitterness. Fruity, sweet scent.

Translucent yellow with minimally sized white head. Bubblegum, yeast, citrus, perhaps melons?, and mild hop aromatically. Mid bodied and rather smooth. Bubblegum, banana, very little yeast, and definitely mild melon although not necessarily watermelon with a smooth and silky finish. Not terrible, although something is definitely slightly off. I don’t regret trying it, but I wouldn’t purchase another.

ljthiessen (726) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 26, 2015
Bottle. Slightly cloudy golden pour with no head. Mostly a light and grainy wheat beer with a touch of sweet watermelon. Very clean and refreshing flavour, but watermelon fades faster than the grainy malt, making a less than stellar lingering taste.

northropfrye (2771) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 24, 2015
Light yellow/orange body, almost no head and no lacing. Pleasant sweet yeasty aroma. Taste is sweet, malty, a touch of watermelon, yeast. Pleasant but finishes watery. Tingly palate. Not great.

ENG: 341ml bottle from Liquor Mart in Winnipeg, poured into the Teku glass. Yellow to orange, opalescent color with immediately dissipating head. Aromas are soury, lemony, twists in the nose a bit but it’s >>okay<<. Tastes very shallow, watery with very salty and soury finish. Nothing in aftertaste really (besides that salty-soury dominant). Medium carbonation and low body. Overall not my taste, very watery with acidic character, empty - tasteless brew. For sure no watermelon noticeable anywhere here.

PL: Butelka 341ml kupiona w Liquor Mart w Winnipeg, przelana do Teku. Barwa opalizująca, żółto-pomarańczowa, piana znika natychmiastowo. Aromaty kwasowe, cytrynowe, kręcą nieco w nosie ale jeszcze ujdą. W smaku bardzo płytkie, wodniste z mocno słonym, kwaśnym zakończeniem. W posmaku w zasadzie nic się nie pojawia (poza tą słoną kwasowością dominującą to piwo). Średnie nasycenie, niskie odczucie w ustach. Podsumowując nie mój gust, bardzo wodniste z kwaśnym charakterem, puste - bez smaku. Na pewno nie ma tu nigdzie arbuza.

A fairly pathetic attempt at a fruit beer. No aroma and almost no watermelon flavor to speak of. Disappointing. Some grain like malts...a touch of tang. But quite lame.

Fit for the Pit. This beer is worthless. Doesn’t taste like watermelon. Tastes like ass. Give it a miss.

brokensail (13234) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 26, 2014
On tap @ Parallel 49. Rather hazy golden pour with a white head. Nose is sweet watermelon candy and soda. Some hints of grass and a fair amount of banana. Tastes quite sweet, unsurprisingly. A lot of banana and watermelon candies. Sort of soda-like in terms of the sweetness and mild acidity. Minimal malt of hop presence. Just a bit of bread and grass. Not as good as their other fruity offerings.
