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!

First... this beer frightens me... I despise fruit beers. Well... time to open the bottle, and see what comes out... Aroma... not so bad... standard witbier aroma, with a hint of sweetness hiding behind it. It pours a straw like color, with a white head that quickly fades to a tight cap. Gods... what have I consumed? Thereís a taste hiding in the background I canít place, but I know itís no pomegranate. Itís more of a sour-bitter flavor. Thereís a slight finish of pomegranate, but thatís being curbstomped by this off flavor. Something I shall stay far far away from... At least itís drinkable and not a drain pour.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2008 Sweet perfumy aromatic aroma. Darker hazy wheat beer color, light brown and vanilla. Looks almost like hazy ginger ale. Some swirling stuff in there but not a whole lot, there isnít any sludge on the bottom of the bottle. Thin creamy froth head. Bitter tart wheat beer impact. Very refined creamy carbonation. Except for the tartness, cannot really taste any pomegranates. Slight building medium length bitterness on the finish. Some hop and bitter grapefruit rind impact. Interesting. Has the same taste as many unfruited wheatbeers that have been hopped a little.

Golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of grain, fruit, corn and pomegranate. Taste is mildly fruity but otherwise all wrong. Bad bitter, astringent with a chalky finish. Excitingly different? No, just another in the long line of fruit beers that completely miss the mark!

Crystal clear orange tinted golden body with a nice sized, fast-fading white head. Aroma of wheat, yeast, coriander seed, curacao and a bit of cherries - no pomegranate noticeable. Medium-bodied; Sharp hop flavour and alcohol noticeable up front with malt and yeast following soon afterwards with a bit of fruit, not much. Aftetaste shows metal, malt, alcohol and a tiny bit of hops - no freshness or fruit. Overall, not such a great beer - this one really should be avoided. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Oliver’s Beverage in Albany, New York on 12-July-2008, sampled18-September-2008 at home in Washington.

(bottle - 12 oz) Clear gold in color with a fizzy white head. Aroma is light and malty. Almost no pomegranate present in the aroma. Flavor is sour with hints of wheat, yeast, honey, and very light berry. Couldnít really detect pomegranate and there wasnít enough fruit flavor to take away from the bitterness of the wheat.

(bottle). Pours a gold color. Small white head. Has a wheat aroma, and wheat and sour tastes. Smooth finish with lively carbonation on the palate.

Poured hazy yellow with a big white head. Hint of fruit in the aroma. Refreshing water flavor with a hint of fruit in the finish. Slamed it.

This was the beer I sampled after Russian River Temptation. Talk about unfair. Pours a clear gold color with a touch of amber. Thin white head. The aroma is very malty with bread and cardboard boxes from the basement. The pomegranate really does come out in the flavor with light spices, wheat and caramel. Sweet and too sticky, this one wasnít easy drinking nor the nice refreshing summer beer I thought it might be. I canít recommend this one.

WBF-Raleigh. Light amber body with a fizzy white head. Wheat and fruit aroma. Sweet fruity flavor on a grainy background.
