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!

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.

Pours light golden with a thin wispy white head. Notes of citrus, bitter orange peel, chewy wheat, pear, and white grape. Thin to medium bodied with lively carbonation.

Slight cloudiness in a honey colored pour. Light head and lacing. Taste (and odor) are definitely different, with wheat and yeast providing the base while the pomegranate contributes sourness. This is a retort to those who think a great brew needs to have a unique twist; it gets high marks for originality, low marks for drinkability.

FishBizkit (234) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2011
Clear yellow color with a fluffy white head and consistent lacing. Bready aroma with a distinctly tart hint of pomegranate. I donít know if itís the pomegranate but this is really unlike any wheat beer Iíve had. Very yeasty for the style and the hints of citrus clash greatly with the overly sweet pomegranate flavors. Crisp and refreshing. Not bad.

the pomegranite lent a mild cranberry like flavor. It was not overpowering, and did not dominate the other flavors. It was a novelty, but not somthing I would likley choose for a regular beverage

Poured into a weizen glass. Color is a medium straw. Aroma is mild but has some pomegranate, banana, and clove. Flavor is mildly sweet and fruity. Palate is crisp and light. Overall a very vefreshing beer but the flavors seem a little muted and artificial.

12oz bottle from ABC poured into a shaker. Pours a clear yellow with zero head. Slight aroma of citrus hops. Something else tart in there, possibly the pomegranate. Taste is lightly sweet and medium sour. Starts like a sour grapefruit juice and ends with some nice hop flavor on the back end. Medium bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively carbonation and a long bitter and sour finish. Overall, not bad. Iím glad I have a second bottle to drink, but I probably wonít be buying it again.

Light and thin. Very watery in the finish with little fruit to be tasted at all.

This was not a very good beer just average, i guess it would help if i actually liked pomegranate

Aroma is hint of lemon citrus. Appearance is golden yellow, clear with large frothy white head. Taste is wheat and citrus tart mixed with sweetness. Easy to mistake pomegranate for lemon. Bit of bitterness finished off. Palate is light and crisp. Tartness makes this a very refreshing beer. Overall this is a very enjoyable beer. The pomegranate juice is mild and I donít think I would place it if it wasnít written on the bottle. Reminds me much more of a Wit light on the esters. That said, this is a very nice beer that makes an excellent drinker.
