With the initial pour, it appears rather thin, colored a clear pale honey-yellow. Thick wisps of a wheaty haze fall as it sits, eventually clouding the entire brew and darkening the color to a more uniform honey-gold – though the thickness remains 0n the thin side. The carbonation is quick and sparkling, erupting as it hits the glass and building a nice 3-finger thick head of thin, lacy foam that sticks around for quite a while afterwards, falling into a gossamer ring and sheer patches as I sip it. While the bubbles seem hardy enough, they refuse to stick to the side of the glass, leaving no trace it was ever there. * * *
The aroma is very light, carrying hints of watermelon and fresh-cut rind, minimal hops, faint grainy notes and some wheat malt, but none are heavy enough to make a lasting impression until the beer is near room-temperature. * * *
Hell or High Watermelon holds a light body, dry mouthfeel, and moderate semi-spicy carbonation. The clean, crisp authentic watermelon flavor is immediately present at the forefront, and fades into a lighter, sweet melon tang while touches of grainy wheat and malt follow through to the end. The profile of this beer overall is very light, but that doesn’t keep it from being the perfect thirst quencher, especially when it’s 115º outside. As much as I disagree with the current stereotypes of women and (fruit) beer, I think that this could be an awesome first step into the craft beer world for both men and women who are still trying to become interested and want to ease themselves in.
Cloudy golden appearance with a sweet body that is very watery. Flavor of watermelon shows up in the finish. kambei70 (1075) - - JUL 16, 2017
Pours a hazy cloudy bright sunlight yellow with a thin white head and good lacing. Smells of yeast and lemon. Tastes similar to aroma. Mild bitterness

The watermelon flavors seemed rather artificial. Not my favorite beer I’ve had lately. JBell14 (99) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 10, 2017
On tap. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a light head. Crisp and light with hints of watermelon on the back end. A nice summer offering.

Orange. Very wheaty, dry, some tangerine maybe. Bit underwhelming though. Very soft taste, okay and quality is fine but just very very mild. (33cl can at Carolines in Berkeley)

Has a great taste. You don't get a lot of Watermelon out of it. It's just enough to make you want more. Would definitely recommend.

Very light beer with a nice hint of watermelon. I would buy it again when in season.

Tap; pours a hazy straw color with a white head; aroma of wheat, cereal, and hints of watermelon; taste is sweet and similar to the aroma but the watermelon is more noticeable but not over done; rather short and semi dry finish Strykzone (7362) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2017
Pint at Bigelo’s. Hazy and straw colored. The glass arrived with a watermelon slice on it. Big watermelon aromas and flavor. Some sugar. There was some hefe notes but the watermelon lead everything. Chudwick (3210) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - APR 15, 2017
Can - watermelon everything. Cloying finish. Light and interesting. Came highly recommended from two of my admins from work.
