2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2007 The problem here is that there more tartness than any actual pomegranate flavor. Or aroma. Just tart, verging on sour. Maight be OK as a summer refresher, when one is extremely hot & thirsty, but otherwise...

Bottle. Very small white head that mostly diminished, no lacing, visible carbonation, cloudy, and a light orange hue with some light yellow on the sides of the glass. Nose was fruity, some hoppy notes, tart, sweet, and some malt notes. The flavor was fruity, sweet, tart, and somewhat acidic tasting. Tingly mouthfeel. Light-medium body. Might be okay as a summer brew, but overall, I wasn’t impressed with this one.

Yellow Gold Coloring with White Skin. On the Nose is What Must be Pomegranate... Initially Seemed Hoppy More then Anything...Some Subtle Cloying and Musty Dry Pomegranate Notes...Dry Wheat Ending...Pretty Dank and Tart.....An Interesting Brew.

Thanks to my friends Tim & Naomi for sharing this. 12 oz. Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with a white head and good lacing. The nose is tart with some malt. This is a good example of what you can do with pomegranate in beer. I somehow was hoping for more.

Sample size: Slight hazy reddish pour. As the name suggests a typical wheat beer with mildly tart/sweet fruit notes which we can only presume is pomegranate. Nothing too exciting but a good drink.

Grainy malt and wheat aroma, and little pockets of what i presume is pomegranate, tart wheat and fruit sweetness in the taste, between the tart wheat and the fruity taste left on your tongue,theres a strange astringency,like you been sucking on an old fruit skin,a little disagreeable,interesting, could be a nice summer sipper but otherwise,pass

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Off golden color with just the slightest red hue with a repsectable white head and carbonation. Aromas of citrus, wheat, and perhaps a hint of ponegranate. It contains flavors of wheat, sour citrus, and a rather distracting bitter hops finish which lingers on the palate (and not in a good way). Texture is correct for a wheat beer, although what I am really missing is the pomegranate! If they wished to make a beer highlighting the flavor of the fruit then they should have used more - I just couldn’t detect any hint of the fruit in the flavor. It is pleasant to drink but I wish it had been much more upfront with the fruit.

12oz botttle. Hazy light golden color with a good sized white head. Subtle aromas of wheat, toasted malt, and citrus fruit. A bit sour up front, then the wheat becomes a bit more evident. Sweet towards the end; pomegranate juice flavor comes through. Not bad; fairly refreshing.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazy golden amber with a pinkish hue and a full pillowy head. Aroma of wheat and underripe berries. Very tart and lightly sweet with a wheat and hop bitterness. Bitter finish that folds gradually into a malty smoothness. Crisp and tingly palate with a medium-light, refreshing body. As for the pomegranate...If I ever find out what a pomegranate actually tastes like I’ll know if this tastes like one. But it is a decent beer, a little on the tart side but not bad.

I was really looking forward to this beer and it let me down. It was quite tart but it seemed to have no taste of pomeranate. I thought it would be a ruby red beer but it was more of a wheat beer than a fruit beer.
