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!

The brew was a crisp, light straw color with a slight haze to it. Like most flavored beers, the pomegranate was fairly light,but suprisingly pleasant. Mouthfeel was a little on the dry side, but other than that, this beer was very refreshing. I could see it being a great summer beer for Coloradoans, besides Coors Light. LOL!

At first I thought it would taste too fruity. But the taste of the fruit was not overpowerful.

Tap at the brewery. Very light straw body with a lasting foam head. Nose-kinda like bud light and apple. Taste-great crisp acid bite from the pomegranate. Very well done and different, in a good way.

(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with Ughsmash, thanks Jason!) I don’t really think of pomegranate as a really flavorful fruit, maybe because I can’t take a bite of it and get a nice mouthful of fleshy fruit. Although it’s been several years since I last tasted a fresh pomegranate, I remember it being mostly just tart. Well, this is an extremely fruity beer, fairly tart with a mild sweetness to take some of the edge off. It reminds me of eating a fruit salad of grapefruit, passion fruit and a few peach wedges thrown in for a hint of sweetness. The fruit is flavorful enough that I really can’t taste much of the wheat in the background, but that’s nothing too unusual for a fruited wheat beer. Mildly sweet fruits dominate the nose, but the tartness is also quite evident. Light bodied but not watery. Carbonation is lively on the palate. Pale golden in color with slight haze, the steady streams of tiny carbonation bubbles are plainly visible. The white head pours to about an inch in height and settles to a thin layer with a wide ring. A dense curtain of lace is left on the glass initially, though it soon condenses to an ice crystal pattern. I have to say, I was pretty impressed with this one. Nice aroma, interesting and enjoyable flavor, and quite different from any of the fruit beers I remember sampling thus far. I’d definitely drink this again.

Barrel Draught from the jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center 29/09/2005 Light golden coloured with a slightly hazy appearance. Extremely hoppy. Some dryness and bitterness in the finish.

Bottled. Poured a mildly hazy lighter golden with a long-lived white head. Nose was very enticing, with lemons, pomegranate, and some yeasty wheat representing. First flavor impression was of tart lemons and pomegranate, filling out with wheat and bready malts. Finish was a tad sour with lemon and tart wheaty notes. Lighter-bodied with rather high carbonation. A bit dry at the backend. Solid, refreshing brew.

i approached this beer with a huge thirst: after a dusty day of working like a rented mule, i would’ve guzzled from a day old dog dish if that’s all that was available. fortunately, i had this sample to toss like a quench grenade at my onslaught of parch. boom, right in the middle of my palette this baby burst with thirst slaying refreshment. i went to my memory bank’s library of data concerning pomegranate and found an empty space on the shelf, so to speak; i know it’s a fruit (though it sounds more like a rock), but i can’t remember if i’ve ever had one. the beer is bright beach sand yellow with a slight yeasty haze and a head as thick and white as that pocket pack of tissues in the glove compartment. there is sour cider, cranberry, cucumber, and some postage stamp adhesive in the aroma, along with the predictable mild graininess and yeast. moderate sweetness and bitterness with a bit more cranberry tartness lingering amid a milky feel and medium body. fast and cold on a huge thirst: boom.

This was definitely unique. Tart flavors mixed with an aroma of fresh toasted bread. Slightly yeasty and zesty, with some great fruit flavors from the namesake.

Had this beer on 5/21/2005. Interesting note, this beer comes with two totally different labels. One with a red rocket blasting off and the other is a yellow bi-plain. Both labels came in the same six pack. Color is a hazy pale gold with good carbonation and nice head. Aroma is a faint wheat scent with light tones of hops. Taste is crisp, tart and bitter. Starts with a light body that goes down crisp with a clean feel. The finish comes on with a faintly sweet malted wheat flavor that has a light fruit flavor coming though it. It then turns to a tartness and ends with a mild hop bitterness. its a nice warm summer day kind of beer.
