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!

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. I’m glad I have a second bottle to drink, but I probably won’t 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 don’t think I would place it if it wasn’t 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.

It poured a golden color with a small white head. The aroma was citrus rinds and peels with some wheat notes. The flavor was wheat with some bitter citrus peels and some grapefruit.

DrSilverworm (8164) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 4, 2011
12oz bottle. Totally clear yellow color, minimal white head, a few spots of lace. Very nice pomegranate nose, white bread. Refreshing, easy to drink, crisp carbonation. Mildly oily mouthfeel. Sweet and tart taste, just as the bottle describes, which is nice. A good, refreshing, and unique wheat ale.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - AUG 21, 2011
12oz bottle. Rating #292. Hazy dark yellow with a bit if orange and a small white head. Light atoms, wheat and a little citrusy. Tart with a touch if bitterness, light fruit and it tastes a little old as well. Decent. (1862)

From a bottle poured a straw color with a fair amount of head. Light refreshing malty flavor with a quick finish.

purchased bottle somewhe in CO. Not even sure WTH a pomegranate tastes like. Medium-bodied; some hop flavor up front with malt It is the aftertaste that makes me never want to drink again. Not sure if this was the Pom or just the brewer - bitter/tart aftertaste - no freshness or fruit. PASS on this one.
