Draft to taster at Odd Side. Looks solid; a transparent gold with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of mild wheat alongside an off-putting vegetal presence. Tastes like it smells with a medium light-bodied mouthfeel. More watermelon rind than watermelon. Not a fan.

Really nice fruit beer with fresh real watermelon character. Its nice and light but creamy. Nice little cucumber note and some grassy bitterness in the finish. Drinkable and nice.

Pours a hazy orange yellow with a very thin white head. Aroma is a very strange, off-putting watermelon, almost like lacto gone bad. Flavor is much more decent - watermelon and wheat. Has a light crisp body. Overall just ok.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 5/8/2015. Pours very hazy golden orange color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big watermelon, strawberry, lemon, pear, apple, light banana/clove, wheat, biscuit, light honey, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity and balance of watermelon, fruity/earthy yeast, and bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big watermelon, strawberry, lemon, pear, apple, light banana/clove, wheat, biscuit, light honey, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal bitterness/yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of watermelon, strawberry, lemon, pear, apple, light banana/clove, wheat, biscuit, light honey, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity and robustness of watermelon, fruity/earthy yeast, and bready malt flavors; with a great yeast/malt/fruit balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4%. Overall this is a damn nice fruited wheat ale. All around great balance and robustness of watermelon, fruity/earthy yeast, and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and very flavorful to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Beerman6686 (6435) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Poured a semi hazy with a light orange. Aroma was of yeasty grain, light watermelon, and oxidation. Flavor was weird sweetness and bitter, watermelon is only moderate. Too sweet

Watermelon flavors seem artificial, like a jolly rancher. Notes of light grains and faint caramel. Crisp and light.

12oz bottle, from the Woodstock Wine & Cheese. Enjoyed from a plastic cup, on Devils Lake. Split with Celia M. Thin off-white head visible. Great watermelon flavor... Somewhere between authentic watermelon and syrupy artificial, more on the authentic side, though, I think. I prefer it to the Hell or High, I think because its not as sweet, from what I remember. Nice light to moderate bitter balance, and moderate sweet. Nice mild dry finish. Some herbal sort of bitter peel-type watermelon flavor. Sweet, but not artificially so... Seems like the sweet comes more the malt. Bit of bready sweet malt too, but its pleasant. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Mild slick. Nice bit of creme to it. Tasty. Good watermelon wheat, definitely above average for the style (out of the 5-6 or so that Ive tried so far)
