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!

rollinsr (384) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - MAY 6, 2012
Pours clear yellow with some foamy white head. Aroma is mostly tart yeast. Flavor is slightly tart as well with not much emphasis on the wheat. Fairly crisp and drinkable. Not bad if you are are in the mood for something light and slightly different.

Patrickctenchi (3969) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 9, 2012
Bubbly gold, tiny white head. Scent is sour wheat.. Taste is tart-bitter fruit and wheat. watery. Not impressed. maybe it’s the pom juice concentrate.... seems a bit contrived to me.

tone77 (256) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2012
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.

queenholly (3007) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - MAR 30, 2012
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 weren’t 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 (1831) - 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, I’m 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 (3872) - 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 (896) - 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.

Taste is wheat, apples, light berries, tart sweet fruity. Medium body, soft carbonation, sweet at frist, but with rather bitter finish. 250212
