Ground Control to Major Tom. Youíre cleared to try the most unique beer ever brewed. A nice, slightly sweet-tart Wheat Beer brewed with pomegranates. Excitingly different!

12 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass, displaying a clear, orangey gold color, with an active, off white/light tan, mousse-like head that wouldnít quit, and clingy, bubbly & foamy patches of lacing. The nose may have offered some light wheat, but was mainly ripened fruit, with dried cherry & raisin sweetness, and a slight medicinal, cough drop scent. Even a bit of cardboard crept into the aroma with a later sniff. The taste presented a moderate bitterness, with a little lingering quality, fruit juice, and a bit of tartness that mixed well with the perky carbonation. Light to medium bodied, with subtle, malty creaminess to the mouthfeel. Okay, but not really a very fresh, fruit presentation, as it seemed generally muddled, and slightly oxidized.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label has a brief description of the beer but no abv %. Appearance: It has a light golden color with very good clarity and some visible carbonation. After the pour it sets up an average size just off white head. This head slowly settles to very thin film covering of foam with a nice lacey ring at the edge of the glass. Smell: The aroma has a mild malty and wheat like character with a light hint of floral hops and maybe even just a very slight touch of fruity sweetness. Taste / Palate: The flavor is a perfect copy of its aroma. This comes by way of a light feeling body with balanced carbonation. As it warms and take the last few sips I get a little more of the fruity pomegranate notes mixing with floral hop notes in the finish.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body under a small fizzy white head that faded pretty quickly. The nose has just a slight hint of tart fruitiness from the pomegranate, a light breadiness, and a little wheat. Pretty light on the fruitiness as far as the flavor goes, but I suppose thatís OK. It tastes like the majority of Wheat Ales, slightly bland and boring with pale bready malt and wheat with a minimal yeastiness. Light bodied and fizzy with a short finish. Pretty forgettable beer.

Pours a hazy gold color with a thin, fizzy white head. A little boring looking. Aroma is malt, sweet tarts, and wheat grass. Flavor is hard to explain. The malty flavors are very muted and their is a bit of sour tartness to it. Itís not terrible, there is just not much going on. It tastes a bit watered down. I guess I could see myself drinking this on a hot summer day or something, but, there are plenty of better summer time options out there. Probably wonít get this one again.

Made a hasty choice Easter Sunday it was hot and sunny and I was in search of a wheat beer. Drank straight from the bottle. Nose has a tart pom or cranberry scent. Very light in flavor, slightly crisp. Sour aftertaste. Nothing special, OK to pound while sweating in the sun.

355ml bottle. Pours a slightly opaque dark yellow with a thin, white head. Aroma has mild notes of pomegranate, apple, and citrus. Taste is balanced. Slight apple and pomegranate. Medium body and carbonation. Clean mouth feel with a slightly dry finish. Overall not bad. Could use more pomegranate flavour but still refreshing.

Pours a clear amber yellow with a frothy white head. Aroma is citrus and spicy. Flavor is clean and crisp and slightly tart. Don't really get much pomegranate. Mild bitterness. Refreshing beer.
