Transfer from BA review on 8-4-12- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a golden-yellow color with a one finger white head. The head faded fast to leave only a very small amount of lacing. Smell – The aroma was heaviest of a watermelon aroma. It is somewhat artificial, but not too bad. While the watermelon is dominating, there are lighter notes a wheat nature as well. Taste – The taste begins with a malty wheat flavor. A wheat is a light background flavor for the watermelon flavor to sit upon. The watermelon starts out sweet and light and gets more intense in flavor toward the middle of the taste. As the taste moves on further it loses some of the watermelon sweetness as some light hop flavors come to the tongue. In the end a mildly sweet yet rather potent watermelon flavor is left on the tongue. Mouthfeel – Te body of the beer is on the light to average side with a higher level of carbonation. Both are good for the sweet taste of the beer. Overall – For a watermelon flavored beer it does have good watermelon flavor, but overall it is something I wouldn’t go out of my way to get.

Sampled at Thomas Hooker Test Kitchen. Smelled like watermelon Jolly Ranchers, very promising, but flavor was horrible. Watery body with a plastic aftertaste. Not good at all.

Bad. Clear yellow pour with no head...flat. aroma is watermellon starburst. Taste like a tea made from watermellon starburst. This was a bad idea.

ROBC3366 (650) - north reading, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Poured a clear yellow color with a small wispy white head. Aroma was pretty much jolly rancher, sweetness. Flavor was some watermellon, with some bitter watermellon seed notes. Relatively refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drank from bottle, on opening, there is a watermelon aroma. After that, it is just a very strange tasting beer, some watermelon flavours. The bottle says strangely refreshing, not sure if that is true.

Pours a two finger white head that fades quickly leaving some lace. Clear pale straw color. Good carbonation and light-medium bodied. Strong watermelon nose and flavor is almost sour watermelon. $2.99 for a 12oz bottle from Julio’s Liquors Marlboro, MA. Label has 4.5% ABV.

ScipioA (302) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Picked up a single at the Craft Beer Cellar in Belmont out of curiosity. Nothing special with the appearance, a pale yellow and thin head. It certainly tastes like beer... with some watermelon in it. Between sips the aftertaste veers from watermelon (actually kind of yummy) to some sort of strong vegetable (not so much). Glad I tried it, probably wouldn’t buy another.

Bottle. Does not look like watermelon. Fortunately. Hazy yellow color, tiny white head. Smells like watermelon, thankfully. Or more like Jolly Ranchers, really. Does not taste like Jolly Ranchers, happily. Bitter summer fruit. Interesting.

Bottle shared by Travlr. Pours clear yellow with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is heavy watermelon Jolly Ranchers with little else. Flavor is watermelon, light malt, medium bitterness with a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.
