Poured from the tap into a plastic pint cup. The color is cloddy and is a bit yellow like a hefeweizen and other wheat beers. The smell is a bit wheaty at first. Some slight hoppiness to the flavor and a little fruit flavor in the background. The taste is mostly wheat at first with a touch of hops. Just as the beer is going down a nice watermelon kick comes through the last of the beer. A nice sweetness that is leveled out by the wheat flvaor. The feel of this beer is and light. Makes for one great summer beer. It has a great taste and is pretty drinkable.

22oz bomber. Pours a hazy orange color with a small white head. Head recedes and leaves a small film. Nose is honey and clove, some light banana esters. Palate is medium bodied with a nice playful palate and a clean finish. Flavor is light honey and pepper with a hint of watermelon that feels natural and not forced. Quite refreshing and easy to drink without being watered down.
