12oz can. Hazy golden color with sediment and one finger head. Watermelon and wheat aroma. Some watermelon on the taste. Alright beer to drink during hot weather.

beerbaaron (1580) - Arizona, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Slightly unclear dark yellow. Virtually no head. Aroma is grain, light wheat, light watermelon with more of a of the sugary watermelon juice type smell. Light body. A bit watery. Flavor is wheat, grain, light watermelon juice type sweetness but not watermelon flavor really. Finish is light bready with a mild earthy bitter. Simple. Can do a lot worse for a hot weather refresher, but this is pretty plain.

MarinEvelyn (654) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Aroma is faint. Grain, wheat, slight watermelon. Taste is similar. A little grainy and dry. Slightly bitter. Like the taste of watermelon when you get near the white edge.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2015
[Bottle] Pours yellow in color with a fading bright white head. Watermelon Jolly Ranchers and mild zest in the nose. Similar flavors, with artificial watermelon taking center stage. Weak body. Very wine cooler-like. Spritzy carbonation. Tasting notes from 8/2014.

jackfrost9p (338) - California, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Sweet ale with a hint of watermelon. Refreshing on a hot day, but wouldn’t be my first choice.

achtungpv (227) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Mild lager. Some wheat, some rye. Watermelon on the back end. Nothing spectacular here. Move along.

Vballnbeer (158) - Gorham, Maine, USA - JUL 17, 2013
I remember trying to brew a watermelon beer back in my home brewing days and falling short, so I always have to try one when I see one. The aroma was pretty nice, it is unfiltered and the bottle suggests gently rolling it to awaken the yeast. It pours a cloudy dark gold and has little head. The flavor is mild with a decent amount of watermelon flavor but the base isn’t very good and it doesn’t blend very well. I’ll keep looking.

wildbeercat (353) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 27, 2013
12 fl oz / 355mL bottle into a pint glass. Served cold. Aroma: Sour. Sour sour sour. No watermelon, but a definite sour, soapy smell. Appearance: Super super foamy head. It took a while to pour this one because, even slowly and at a near 179 degree angle, it foamed up really fast. Hazy dark yellow body. Visible sediment. Taste: Oh wow, not what I was expecting after that terrifying aroma. Really nice subtle watermelon on the arrival backed up by fresh bready yeast. Nice and refreshing! (That aroma is still terrifying though). Palate: Short finish. Light bodied, not watery. Overall: Pretty nice beer. That aroma is scary, but this is a pretty nice one. I usually like fruity beers that leave no doubt what the fruit is, and honestly, had I not known this is a watermelon ale, I wouldn’t have been able to guess the fruit. Pretty decent brew, though!

alexandersh (196) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JUN 19, 2013
Bottle; Poured hazy amber/golden. Aroma: Artificial flavor. Flavor: Starburst taste, artificial candy and extremely watered down, not a good combo.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 27, 2013
12oz bottle. Rating #12. Light golden color with a white head. Light fruit and watermelon aroma, tropical. Flavor was mild watermelon and wheat with more of a tropical flavor layered in there with the watermelon. (2712)
