3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden pour with a moderate white head. Nose of light caramel and apples. Flavor of light citrus, sweet caramel malt (wheat? I donít find it!) and very lightly sweet fruitiness, almost a touch of cider, but pomegranate? i donít find that either. A little too sweet and cloying, buit not all that bad...certainly not a drain pour, by any means.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Ground Control to Major Tom: What the hell have you done? 12 oz bottle, poured a light gold with a small, perfectly white head with good retention, nice lacing. Aroma of nectarine, some wheat, some grass. Flavor is moderately sweet in the fore, barely bitter in the finish. Some nameless fruit funkiness in there. Lots of carbonation helps this beer be drinkable. Syrupy mouthfeel and no crispness to speak of, so the bubbles do help, but not enough to make up for the fact that youíre drinking a syrupy wheat. This beer is maybe two steps away from being a fine, refreshing drink, but it totally misses the mark. Far too sweet and sticky. There is no pomegranate here that I can taste, though Iím sure itís a great marketing gimmick. Bah. Rubbish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
i approached this beer with a huge thirst: after a dusty day of working like a rented mule, i wouldíve guzzled from a day old dog dish if thatís all that was available. fortunately, i had this sample to toss like a quench grenade at my onslaught of parch. boom, right in the middle of my palette this baby burst with thirst slaying refreshment. i went to my memory bankís library of data concerning pomegranate and found an empty space on the shelf, so to speak; i know itís a fruit (though it sounds more like a rock), but i canít remember if iíve ever had one. the beer is bright beach sand yellow with a slight yeasty haze and a head as thick and white as that pocket pack of tissues in the glove compartment. there is sour cider, cranberry, cucumber, and some postage stamp adhesive in the aroma, along with the predictable mild graininess and yeast. moderate sweetness and bitterness with a bit more cranberry tartness lingering amid a milky feel and medium body. fast and cold on a huge thirst: boom.

First impressions on this was mainly.."Whereís the pommegranate?". No fruit in the nose or on the palate. It did have that some wheat and yeast notes but I didnít get anything fruity at all. It had a real yeasty flavor, some citrus but that was really about it. It didnít do much for me to be honest. I wouldnít mind a revisit because I like the idea of a pommegranate wheat for the hot Summer months.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours very pale golden/yellow with a thin white head. Head recedes quckly leaving small white bubbles in lace on top of beer. Smells fruity, slightly hoppy, and fairly musty. The taste was ok at first, with wheat, citrus, pomegranate (a fruity sweetness) and slightly sour. Soon though, the sourness overwhelmed and a repulsive aftertaste emerged. I am not generally a fan of wheat beers or fruit beers, and this horrible marriage did nothing to change my mind. I would try it again, out of fairness to the fine beer-raters who appreciate it, but I stand by my opinion.

On tap at the brewpub. Really sweet with a fruity aroma. Very refreshing and tasty. Very interesting beer. If in Ft. Collins, this place is a must.

Bottled. Pours a straw color with a reddish hue. Fruity aroma with some vinegar notes. Dry and clean flavor with some wine notes. Finishes a bit musty. Pretty good beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Personal Milestone: Colorado rating #100 (out of 2324)!
I think this would make a solid Summer brew. Deep gold in body with a minimal head, itís got an aroma of wheat, yeast, and tart pomegranate (Surprise!). The slight sourness makes it a crisp, snappy drink. The flavor is wheat with zest of lemon, followed by pomegranate in the finish. Resfreshing.

tap. Wow. this is an interesting beer. Not a fan of pemegranates in general but they really make this beer stand out. Aroma of lemon, wheat, musky and slightly sour aroma but very nice. pomegranates wheat and lemon on the palate. This is very unique fruit beer. big fan.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy yellow with some head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of wheaty esters and tart fruit with a little bready character as well. The taste is surprising even more tart and puckery, hides most of the wheat flavors except on the finish. The feel is light and lively. Okay beer.
