DRAFT REVIEW: Hell or High Water Watermelon Wheat
This canned concoction is a crowd favorite, but it's also earned approving nods from the nerdiest of beer geeks, too. It pours light gold and clear, topped with a foamy, white head. Sweet watermelon aromas (much like the melon's green rind) and soft, tart wheat scents tickle the nose. Wheaty, bready notes greet the tongue before watermelon sweetness steps in. Unlike many fruit beers, this one never becomes overly sweet; the watermelon flavor is crisp and focused. With a high carbonation and very low bitterness, this no-nonsense brew is a pure thirst-quencher.
