4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wow - when this beer arrives it actually has a big sweet wedge of watermelon sticking right on the pint glass. I was secretly hoping this would be the case but did not disclose it to other members of my male gender. This fruit beer has a medium tan lager color and looks quite refreshing in comparison to thick, dark lambics. In the middle of August heat, this is the perfect refreshing beer to cool you down when you are heading from the church to the reception as you are boiling in your suit and tie. It tastes like a true, smooth, bottom-fermented lager with a slightly sweet, watermelon aftertaste. Even those beer fans who aren’t keen on lambics would truly enjoy one of these beers on a hot summer day.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at BCTC 2009: Hazy light golden with a white thin film of head. Aroma is a bit sulfuric- very light light dimethylsulfide under the subtle melon notes. Light body. Very natural watermelon presence. Sweet upfront, but natural with a rich melon fruitiness. Crisp clean flavor, lean with a mild finish. Natural fruit character, not too bad. A good one for the ladies.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light and refreshing. Fruity, but not overly sweet, hints of bread and yeast along with a touch of malt. Not offensive, not a standout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ligth clear golden ruby color with a small white head. Aroma is inviting, light corn, sweet fruit and watermelon. Taste is light and sweet, watermelon, and some smooth grain. Nice and drinkable.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Watermelon doesn’t belong in beer. This isn’t terrible, but I just can’t get into it either. Straw colored pour with thin head. Watermelon is faint in the aroma, shows up more in the flavor, but not overpowering. Has nice crispness to it that lagers are known for.

Really not like watermelon or a lager. Not enjoyable. Light and absent. Would not order again

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Had a minor jolly rancher flavor. Slight scent too. Very light in color and no haze, completely clear. Lager was light but clean. Artificial taste, but still kinda neat. Tap.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Capone’s. Clear golden color with a small white head. Smells and tastes like a standard golden lager with just a hint of watermelon showing up to let you know that it is there. Nicely balanced, not too sweet, not too much fruit. Very refreshing.

2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draft at Capone’s, pours a cloudy blonde color with a thin white head, aroma of melon and the taste is the same, fairly thin mouthfeel. This is different but not that great. I got sick of it pretty fast.
