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.

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.

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

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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Experienced on tap in a pub glass. The beer pours a straw-colored gold, with a white head. The nose is, at first, totally pilsner malt, a grainy, grassy scent. This is followed by some very real smelling hints of watermelon. The beer is very light and thin on the palate, and I would have liked to have experienced a little bit more malt depth and complexity. The watermelon did come through, and seemed to compliment what malt and hops that were noticeable nicely. Overall, decent, not great.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2008 sampled at the brewery: pours a hazy orange color a shade darker than a hefe-weisee, head is two fingers when poured but then goes down to a thick film across the top. This is an interesting beer, like nothing I’ve ever had. earthy, farm flavors emanate from the cloudy beer recalling a summer drive through the country. flavor is light base malt, lots of fresh watermelon, and a bit of sulfur. light in body. A beer that is worth a try
re-rate: clean mallty light lager. dry, natural watermelon in the finish. sulfar has cleaned up, solid, interesting and creative.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft @ Capones: Poured a golden yellow with small thin white head. The aroma was some watermelon, malts and barley. Nothing overpowering. The flavor was initially of ’real’ watermelons and left me with a flavor of a watered down lager. Overall, a tasty brew, but not good enough for me to write home about it.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brewed in the USA !!! (KSBF) Pours a hazy yellow color with a small white head. Aroma of light watermelon and some malts. Taste is much of the same with the addition of grains. Overall, It was very mild but could be nice on a sunny day.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
KSBF 08-Poured a pale gold color thin white head. Light watermelon aroma which carries into the pallet. Lightly malted and a bit of hops. Smooth-crisp and refreshing. Not bad for a fruit beer.
