bhensonb (11490) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 11, 2010
Bottle from Supermarket Liquors in Fort Collins, CO. Pours light orange gold with a large foamy whiteish head. Very llght pomegranate aroma. Med body/foamy carbonation. It starts a bit sweet, but per advertisement the pomegranate turns it tart. Does that each quaff. Pretty drinkable when you are looking for a non-hop brew.

12 oz bottle-pours a foamy white head and yellow color. Aroma is sweetish, grain/wheat, chamomile?, slightly off. Taste is musty/sweet grain/wheat, some fruit/chamomile? Is it pomegranate juice concentrate or real pomegranate, read the label-its both. Mild carbonation. Not my taste.

In mouth, a nice wheaty malt with some nice hops, a bit floral, a rather nice lasting bitterness, some fruity notes in finale, becoming cloying. Medium bodied.

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.

hopscotch (9489) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2009
Bottle… Pours clear and yellow with a small, transparent head. The bouquet is built upon piny, musky hops and pale grains with a restrained fruit component. Medium-bodied with tingly carbonation. The flavor starts with a pomegranate twang, but that quickly cedes to moderate, earthy, bitterness. Finishes lightly bitter, earthy and a touch dry.
