This one poured a light orange color with a white head. Aroma was lots of fresh watermelon and some light grain and yeast too. Flavor was lightly tart and tangy wheat followed by a big juicy addition of watermelon but not too sweet or artificial. A really nice fruited wheatbeer

Draft. Pours hazy golden orange with a white head. Wheaty base, fruity watermelon, hints of spice, and candy. Clean and juicy, without being too sweet. This one really hit be the right way, very good integration of the fruity sweetness. Damn good.

Served on-tap at Al’s of Hampden.
A - Pours hazy golden orange with a small film of white head, dissipating down to a thin film, leaving little to no lace down the glass.
S - Smells of bready wheat, watermelon pulp, and a tiny bit of the usual Hefe aromas like banana and bubble gum. While the fruit is apparent it is a little on the lighter side.
T - Starts off with some chewy wheat and a bit of bubble gum quickly giving way to the strong watermelon flavor that never really fades away. The fruit is strong yet not overpowering, adding a very nice refreshing fruit flavor to the mix. Finish is a little chewy with some more watermelon fruitiness, lingering on the palate long after the finish.
M - Light body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, fruity feel from start to finish.
O - The nose is a little weak but the taste really makes up for it. The watermelon flavor is strong throughout, keeping me coming back for more. Perfect light beer for a hot summer day.
