Strong crystalmalt aroma. Starts like a pils then turns to an artificial watermelon taste.

Poured from a can into a 6oz tasting glass. Nose is definitely a wheat beer, but mostly that "hay" smell without any fruit presence. For a wheat, it has a whimpy head; expected a pillow on top like Harpoons UFO. Light wheat unfiltered look with no lacing. Watermelon taste is evident in the first taste, but mellows the next couple of sips. Not really into it on a chilly March night, but could see it being a great selection in a cooler for a summer BBQ. Will revisit this May. Cheers.

Nice american wheat. Pours cloudly with thin head. Wheat on the nose but not much else. Up front watermelon almost artificial but crisp. Pretty decently refreshing on an 80 degree day. Not an all the time beer but great effort.

bulldogops (2490) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 27, 2017
Rating #2488 - 2016.05.03 - This pours a cloudy yellowish with a small bubbly head that fades quickly. Aroma is of melon, yeast, clove, and coriander. This retains the character of an american wheat, some cracked pepper, some sharp bitter notes, while balancing mild melon sweet notes into the beer.

wxman (1785) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - DEC 26, 2016
Pours a hazy pale yellow with a respectable white head with some lacing. Aroma is wheat malt and honey. Taste is sweet pale malt, some breadiness, and yes watermelon. Little to no hop bitterness. A decent thirstquencher.

kchampagne (173) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2016
Pours from the can a hazy straw yellow with a thin white head. Tons of artificial watermelon aroma on the nose. Taste is candy-like watermelon with grassy notes. Overall an easy beer to drink.

Light golden color with a wispy white head. Actually a decent watermelon brew. Not overly artificial. 6/11

can - cloudy pale golden color. Wheat flavor and aroma but not much watermelon. Nice and refreshing. And another really cool can!

basaywhat (246) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2016
12 oz can. Pours a clear yellow color with a distinct watermelon aroma. Taste is purely watermelon with a clean refreshing flavor throughout. A light wheat beer that quenched my thirst but was overwhelming with watermelon.

muzzlehatch (4922) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 7, 2016
12 ounce can from Everetts in South Beloit, IL, served cold in an Ayinger glass (forgive me). Very pale, almost clear gold with a fully largish head that dies quickly....aroma at first of sour apples and cough syrup, not pleasant at all, but a so-so watermelon nose eventually appears, though its more reminiscent of cheap artificial candy than the real thing; still, not offensive enough to be gag-worthy as Id feared initially...body has a very light fruit-juicy character but is mostly lightly sour-tart with a particular kind of graininess that doesnt work - it comes off as poorly extracted, with most of the sugar erased and a grain-husky note in place of it...very thin, watery, moderately carbonated. Ultimately this is pretty terrible.
