3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Entering old-rates, Draft @ CCB. Même revue que sa version originale. Dommage, sympa, mais la grenade n’est vraiment pas mon fruit de choix. Palais est plus aigre avec entre le tout le profile houblonné qui ressort avec un malt léger cara doux en retrait.

Pours a golden orange. Aroma is hoppy poma and alcohol. Taste is sweet pomagranite and alcohol. Hoppy and sweet. Palate is medium mouthfeel with a bit of stickness. Overall a pretty good beer

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Courtesy of TampaBrew. Pours deep clear gold with thin white head. The aroma begins berry sweet, sweet pomegranate juice, a touch of fruity tartness, sugar sweetness, wheat like sweetness and some smooth smelling sweet corn goodness. It somehow has that mild smooth corn note without seeming like corn flakes. The taste has the smooth sweet creamed corn mixing with crisp fresh pomegranate that starts sweet and juicy and then becomes more and more tart like. Toward the finish the modest tartness is consumed by a re-surgence of sweet malts and sweet smooth corn. Interesting.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler courtesy of TampaBrew. Pour a clear medium orange-amber color, honey like with an average sized egg shell head. The nose is malty and slightly floral with notes of bread, honey, citrus, tropical fruit (pomegranate I guess), light vanilla, and some spice. Body is pretty full with a smooth, creamy mouth feel. Flavor is mostly sweet but also slightly tart and tangy with big notes of caramel and honey with lesser notes citrus there is a decent amount of hop bitterness but I think the added sweetness of the pomegranate cancels out some of the balance. It does have a spicy Belgian character to it which was very nice. Finishes sweet. Probably my favorite of the double cream ale treatments.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours orange with hints of pink. Nose is very weird, but in a good way, slightly tart, aromatic flowers, sweet caramel, slight spicy cocoa almost. Flavor is biting alcohol, sweet and sour berries, almost a funk to it, the pomegranate gives it this strange belgian quality and it lies somewhere between a saison and an IPA. Very very strange beer, but i loved it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler courtesy of blazer06. Pours a dark golden to amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet and floral with notes of tropical fruits, grains, light floral hops, light floral esters, hints of sweet malts. Flavor is about the same with even stronger notes of tropical fruit and pomegranate, Medium body with a pleasing floral hop and fruit finish. Another nice treatment!

Big Thanks to jdubfl for the share.
A: Pours a lighter shade of orange. Tall cream colored head. Nice retention with spotty lace.
S: Aroma of sweet bready malt, tropical fruit, and citrus.
T: Flavor is very similar. Lightly bready, citric, with a rather bold tartness. Guess that is the pomegranate.
M: Medium in body, smooth, tasty.
D: Good, peach is still my favorite of the treatments though.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler from the brewery. Pours hazy yellow-copper with white head. Nose is bread, grain, pomegranate, and a kind of Belgian-esque tartness. Flavor is bread, grain, fruit, grapes, and a pomegranate tartness. Considering how sweet pomegranate usually runs, this one starts surprisingly tart and finishes with a decent amount of sweetness. Serendipity in a growler.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Cigar City. Pours a light hazy golden orange with a smaller creamy off white head that laced. Aroma of tropical fruits, grain, nice hop touch. Flavor of the same. So smooth and deceptive. Basically just like the regular batch #69 with a touch of pomegranate. I had the peach as well and didn’t think the pomegranate came through as much as the peach did.
