Bière blonde dorée à 4,5% alc. en 500 ml. Biere très claire, forte gazéification. La mousse est très faible. Odeur et gout de bonbon au melon d’eau et de pomme. Absence totale de houblon. On a plus l’impression de boire un vin blanc au pomme.

Hazy golden color with moderate activity. Slightly foamy white 2 finger head that last 5 minutes, with a bit of lacing legs. Aromas of melon and fruits, veggies, and bubble gum. Flavors of fruits including melon, lemon, caramel, sweet roasted grains, noble spices. Highly sugary, but not too syrupy, with a faint sharpness. Bready and a little grassy. Slick light body with prickly carbonation. Light and short finish, ending with a fruity feel, roasted malts, and a lingering burnt caramel feel. Overall a good quality craft. Nice fruity flavors with good freshness. A little faint and thin, needs more body. Great summer beer and accessible.

Appearance: hazy pale gold with a short fizzy white head diminishing rapidly to a thin ring, no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: melon, berry, grainy pale malt, wheat. (5/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, mild tart, low bitter. (5/10) Medium-light slightly syrupy body, lively carbonation, sweet lightly tart finish. (3/5) I was initially kind of impressed that there was a significant melon presence upon decapping. That faded quickly as it became apparent just how “Watermelon Jolly Ranchers” the aroma and flavour really were. High sweetness is kept from becoming sickly only by the fizzy carbonation. Better than macro crap, but only just. To be honest, the best feature is the label. What’s the story there, anyway? Riders fans are pussies? Yeah, OK, let’s go with that. (10/20)

Que dire? Jaune-pisse sans mousse. Un liquide un peu malté au goût léger de melon d’eau. Pas fulgurant. Mais une option inusitée pour une beuverie d’été.

Overheard: "Well, to be fair, I haven’t eaten any fruit in the past year."

500ml brown bottle. Clear gold. Small fine bubbled white head. Nose has sweet watermelon candy and dusty wheat.Taste is a bit of watermelon candy sweetness up front, grain and wheat behind. Not something I would need to try again.

Une blonde limpide qui voit sa mousse typique se résorber en un mince voile. Un nez de fruits concentrés, d’arômes artificiels, de dessert aux ananas et/ou à la noix de coco. On aurait dit que ça sent la slush au pina colada. Un goût de rhum Malibu. Ça lève un peu le cœur. Y’a une partie acidulée qui s’immisce au travers l’aspect fruité. À la longue, le négatif semble moins flagrant. Le melon dans tout ça? J’imagine que ce n’est qu’une expression du coin? (1152-280714)

Ugh, I hated this. Still better than typical Macro crap but this is just Jolly-Rancher summer girl-beer fodder. Maybe mixed with something more beery it would be acceptable. Looks like dirty malt liquor with no head. Aroma is of watermelon candy, wheat and corn syrup. Super sweet taste made worse for me by the syrupy texture. Not for me.

Hazy golden colour. Aromas of melon along with some other fruitiness. Very sweet melon flavour with some hints of wheat. Okay summer beer. Was somewhat refreshing

500ml bottle pours a clear golden color with a finger of white head that settles quickly leaving no lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruits with not much else. Taste is a fruity and malty sweetness with a grassy hop bitterness. Light bodied with mild carbonation. I believe this is a fruit beer and as such, it is typical for the style. Nothing really special here, just a basic brew.

A great Summer beer, a real refresher. Probably don’t want to session on it, but it is quite unique. It actually tasted of watermelon and had a very nice tartness to it. Definitely one of the best fruit beers I have had.
