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!

Bottle. Aroma is sweetly of indeterminate fruitiness and slight wheat. I guess thatís pomegranate. Body a cloudy golden, little white head. Taste is sharp, surprisingly bitter and grainy and tart with notes of wheat and grapefruit. Slightly acidic, and again, I think thatís pomegranate, but itís too indistinct for surety. Medium body, bitter fruity aftertaste. Different yes, but kinda off-putting.

Very disappointing. I wasnít expecting much, but I was hoping for at least *some* fruit. There was none to be found. If there really was even a slightly significant amount of pomegranite juice in this, wouldnít it at least be slightly pinkish? Because itís not, at all. Just flat out yellow. This is a totally boring, bland, worthless american wheat. They should take the "pomegranate" off the label entirely.

Gold color with a thin head. Not much aroma. Taste of soured fruit. Clean wheat finish.

I donít normally like wheat beers, but I did like this one. It was definately different. Not as sweet as many wheats Iíve tried, a fact I appreciated.

WBF-Raleigh. Light amber body with a fizzy white head. Wheat and fruit aroma. Sweet fruity flavor on a grainy background.

Not bad but nothing special. This is a medium bodied American wheat with some sour pomegranate added. The flavors do work well together, and this is very drinkable. Aroma has some wheat. Sour, wheat flavor. A good summer beer.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 14, 2007
From a 12-oz bottle, shared at JKís Spring Gathering. From 12 oz bottle it pours a hazy golden yellow with a fizzy white head. A bit of sticky lacing with light carbonation. Aroma of buckwheat, tart grape, lemons and pomegranate. Taste of mild wheat malt, sweet/tart pomegranate, crab apples and lemons. Light and dry finish to the palate.

12 oz bottle. Ok, I went into this expecting the worst. It pours a clear orange gold (wasnít expecting it to be filtered) with small but retentive white head. The aroma is spicy hops, that savory tone that wheat sometimes imparts, and noticeable but subtle pomegranate. The flavor is the more tart aspects of pomegranate up front, but is not overwhelming or cloying at all. It fades into a dry, grainy middle. Then it dries even more toward the finish into a slightly spicy hoppiness that lingers into the aftertaste. As far as fruit-wheats go, this isnít bad. Certainly better than I expected.

Pours amber with a smallish head. Fair to good lacing. Aroma of wheat and fruit. The fruit smelled more like cherry and lemon to me. Taste doesnít bring too many surprises, except maybe some grassy hops. Light body. Thin texture.
Youíre probably not expecting much when you try this...and boy does Major Tom deliver.
