COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Pours a cloudy golden color. Smell is of, pomegranate and wheat. Taste has a wheat tang to it, pomegranate is present but not over powering. Overall a pretty good beer.

Bottle. Light wheat malt and fruit aroma. Dark golden with a small white head. Wheat malt, sweet/tart fruit, light hop bitterness. Light carbonated body with a dry finish. The hops werenít working for me in this one.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Bottle. Aroma has notes of sour, cereal lager type brew. Medium yellow hue with a soapy white head that left little lace. Flavor is lightly sweet and bitter. Palate is light bodied and water average. Overall a big let down. Pomegranate wheat sounds like a great idea but man did FCB fail to deliver! Move along, nothing to taste here.

JMerritt (1806) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Bottled. Pale gold with a bubbly, bright white head. Rather straightforward, boring semi-sour wheat nose. Sour grain flavor, Iím not sure I can detect any pomegranate at all in either the aroma or flavor, honestly. The end result is just a sub-par, overly carbonated wheat ale, to me.

IrishBoy (3843) - Bakersfield, California, USA - FEB 28, 2012
12 oz bottle from BevMo Salinas. Nose is light yeast and sweetness, light fruity berries, and floral hops. Crystal clear gold with a medium offwhite head. Flavor is sweet and fruity with hints of bitterness and tartness.

Tessic (842) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 26, 2012
This wheat beer poured a clouy light yellow colour with a bright white, very lacking, fine foamed head. To the nose there are scents of ripe fruit, light citrus hopps, leather and cream. First sip was very carbonated with flavours of grapefruit juice and hopps. Very bitter/sour initial flavour with a sweet finish that turns bitter over time with strong hop flavour lingering. Very sharp carbonation.

milewide (1515) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 17, 2012
Sweet in both aroma and taste. Totally filtered, which I donít appreciate in a wheat beer. Medium head and body. Pomegranate contribution was not noticeable. Fuller body than most 4.8% ABV brews.

skoll (420) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - JAN 4, 2012
Pours hazy blonde with foamy white head. Aroma is a little fruity and some west coast hops. Taste - hoppier than I was expecting...a good floral hop bite followed by some creamy maltiness. Not very fruity, but certainly some tart and sweet berry flavors. Sweetens as it warms a few degrees. Medium body. My wife like this one I did not care for it.

Pailhead (4842) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - DEC 24, 2011
Bottle: The aroma has notes of perfume, grass, flowers, and faint pomegranate. It pours a mostly transparent gold with a touch of haze and a two finger white head that leaves behind some sporadic webbing for lacing. The flavor starts some honey sweetness. The finish has some lightly tart citrus and pomegranate notes mixed with some light grassiness. Light bodied with moderate carbonation and a somewhat thin mouthfeel. Overall, an okay thirst quencher.
