My rating: 3
My rating: 3.52
My rating: 3.4

Intro: A 12 fl. oz. can, canned on 8th August 2017. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy golden colour with a two finger white head that had good retention and left nice lacing.
Aroma: Tart, candied watermelon with hints of wheat and salt.
Taste: Lightly tart, sweet watermelon hard candy, bubblegum and salt with an apple cidery finish.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate to high carbonation.
Overall: Although the salt tries to balance it out, this was still too sweet for my liking. Also the watermelon flavours were quite artificial, but I’d imagine that a beer with actual watermelon flavours wouldn’t taste like much. To be transparent, this is coming from someone who does not like watermelon.
