COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You asked and we listened. We’re showing our melons! The backbone of this brew is heavy on the wheat with just a touch of Vienna malt for complexity. We add real watermelon to our tanks during fermentation, leaving a fruity essence on the back end. German hops balance the fruit perfectly in this wheat ale for a slightly dry, extremely refreshing finish.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2016 At the Red Lion. Shocked and pleasantly surprised that it didn’t taste like a jolly rancher. Subtle and bitter enough to cope with the watermelon juice. Serving: Bottle

12 oz. can pours a clear dark golden color with a fizzy white head with poor retention and hardly any lacing. Aroma has watermelon candy, wheat bread, with touches of hay, yeast and honey. Taste is initially sweet with a sour finish. Body is light to medium with a syrupy aftertaste and average carbonation. This one seems artificially flavored and gimmicky to me.

12 oz can. Slightly hazy golden yellow pour with a small pure white head. Aroma is cooked vegetables and mild watermelon. Thinner palate. Taste is like biting into the rind of the watermelon. Not good.

Huge white creamy fizzy head. Good lacing. Mostly diminishing. Dark yellow clear thin body. Aroma: moderate yeasty, honey, light watermelon. Initial flavor: moderate sweet. Final flavor: moderate sweet light bitter; average duration. Palate: lively carbonation, metallic finish, light medium body, watery/oily texture. Honeyish sweetness. Bitterness balances. No watermelon in the mouthfeel. Despite that, tasty beer. 30s

Appearance: pours with a small white head with mediocre retention, the beer is a light gold color with the slightest hint of clouds Aroma: hard to pick up much, slightest hints of watermelon Taste: sweet watermelon, very pale malt backbone, syrup Palate: lively carbonation, thicker mouthfeel than I was expecting, sweet aftertaste Overall: it's hard to make a good watermelon beer, sweeter and thicker than I was expecting, it's OK probably don't need another one though ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DATE TASTED: August 14, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: 22 oz. Wiesenthal... OCCASION: pitting two Horny Goats against one another: the Laka Laka and the Watermelon Wheat... APPEARANCE: clear, lagerlike body with a burnt orange color; the head is attractively inflated, three-fingered, oxygenated, and spongy; the end result is a beautiful collection of cirrus clouds as lacing...AROMA: fragrant spring flowers and subtle, waning scents of citrus--not an account of watermelon, disappointingly.. PALATE: surprisingly largish in its consistency; light to medium bodied and drinkable, but with a slightly syrupy finish... TASTE: the watermelon grows on me with each sip--at first, it simply is too strange, with a hit-and-miss wavering; secondary flavors include some cracker malts, soft citrus, and a mixture of raisin, bubblegum and vegetables... OVERALL: the immediate astringency challenges the concept of refreshment; the malts aid in the roundess of the beer, but it’s not enough to right the agreeableness on the palate; refreshing, yes, but as with the Laka Laka, inconsistent and odd ...

12 ounce can poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a clear copper color with a white head of foam. The aroma is sort of fruity and has a crispy bready note to it. The taste offers a white bready aspect, but I’m getting watermelon candy, like that of a jolly rancher. A touch of bitterness creeps in at the back end. Medium body, and highly drinkable. Medium to high carbonation.

Ratman197 (15220) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 12, 2015
Can poured a clear gold with a small lasting white head. Aromas of wheat, light yeast and a hint of watermelon. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of wheat and light watermelon with a crisp finish.
