3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Caponeís. I really like the house character of these Fort Collins brews. This one pours deep gold with 1-finger white head. Aroma of pale malt, hopcitrus, slight berry and pomegranate notes. The palate was on the thin side, but still refreshing, with taste notes of pale malt, some hopcitrus, honey, and pomegranate.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foam with a frothy top fine to large sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a transparent typically carbonated orange colored body. The aroma was malty musty and fruity. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The weird flavor was not to my liking. A horrible one that I would not buy again.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Frugal McDugal in Nashville. Pours a translucent urine orange color with a diminishing fizzy white head. Faint aroma of wheat malt, but you really have struggle to get it. Spicy american wheat beer flavor mixed in with some sweetness and pomegranite. Mildy tart finish, with some hops that play into it. This is not too bad, perhaps a little too filtered.

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...

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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 wasnít 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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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 couldnít 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.
