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

Cornfield (5362) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2006
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, it’s 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.

Braudog (5493) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - APR 16, 2006
On tap at the brewery, 4/12/06: medium gold with a fizzy head, this was quite enjoyable. Clean and crisp and tangy. Almost appley. Grape-like tartness is what I got from this unique choice of fruit beer.

BBB63 (5750) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 21, 2006
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.

Ratman197 (9057) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 14, 2006
Bottle poured a hazy gold with a large billowy white head. Aromas of wheat, yeast and a fruity aroma I presume is pomegranate[ never tried one]. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of wheat, moderately tart fruit and a bit of yeast with a semisweet dry finish.

5000 (6031) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 31, 2006
Bottle: Translucent golden, huge fluffy white head, sticky lacing, light carbonation.   Wheaty nose, seems tart/sour, with soft pomegranate.   Tart wheatiness on the tongue, pomegranate is quite light.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Dry finish, while being semi-sweet it still remains tart.   Light, different, not bad...   Thanks Ernest for this unique brew!

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - MAR 20, 2006
From a 12 oz. long neck brown bottle with a blurb about the fruit/witbier on the side of label, no freshness date. Made a good appearance, poured a chill hazy raw honey golden with a pillowy white head that settled into a clingy thin lacing, good carbonation. Had a sweet, tart pommegrante berry aroma that overwhelms all other flavor scents. A slick, tart, semi-creamy, more light than medium bodied mouth feel, above average drinkability. Had a tart pommegrante berry flavor upfront, a buried sweetness from the wheat malts and a tart, sour, but not to the point of being puckering, finish. The finish also has a dryness quality that I assume comes from the yeastiness.

Ughsmash (7008) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 19, 2006
Bottled. Poured a mildly hazy lighter golden with a long-lived white head. Nose was very enticing, with lemons, pomegranate, and some yeasty wheat representing. First flavor impression was of tart lemons and pomegranate, filling out with wheat and bready malts. Finish was a tad sour with lemon and tart wheaty notes. Lighter-bodied with rather high carbonation. A bit dry at the backend. Solid, refreshing brew.

Barrel Draught from the jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center 29/09/2005 Light golden coloured with a slightly hazy appearance. Extremely hoppy. Some dryness and bitterness in the finish.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - MAY 10, 2006
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.
