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.

Can pour into shaker pint glass from Hannaford. Appearance is hazy, pale yellow with greenish tinge, trace sparkle, finger-width fizzy white head with poor retention and no lacing. Aroma is wheat, light watermelon. Taste is as aroma with stronger watermelon. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture, average carbonation and finish as taste. Overall, this doesn't offend but is a real lightweight. Nothing standing out to make in noteworthy.

Bright copper, medium head, nose is mild crisp hops wheat, crisp refreshing mild wheat flavor, watermelon minimal- if at all. Peculiar flavor in the finish, in not the best way, a bit sour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can, Pours a hazy light gold with a creamy off-white head. Definite watermelon in the taste and aroma. Nice change of pace beer.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2017 Good beer, nothing special. Watermelon is pretty subdued but I think that's a good thing.
