2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Nice amber color,small white head that faded quickly but still managed to leave a slight lace behind.Grapefruity aroma with a slight wheat side and little more.I think they need to rethink there fruit,because this just does not work for me.The flavor is more of a weak IPA starting out with a flavor of grapefruit with a slight tangy side that i guess is kind of pomegraniteish.and it pretty much stays in the bitter sour area of the pallate....This just doesnít work for me,nice try going for this kind of fruit but,eather there isnít enough pomegranite or it just resembles to much of a flavor of an ipa and itís hop profile then anything for me.

12oz bottle. thanks Jim! pours clean topped off with a very fine thin head. golden color with no haze at all. aroma is mostly grains, lots of malt no hops and only trace amounts of fruit. slightly tart partly sour flavor. simple malty background is not particularly impressive. only a hint of tart pomegranate in the middle. crisp clean finish. meh.

Bottle from some time ago. I am not really sure why I bought all of these. I guess to mimic my friend, Daniel. Fortunately, I was half drunk when I drank this sweet fruity nasty beer. I am not sure I have ever eaten a pomegranate, but if it tastes like this beer, I don’t think I want to. Yellow color, no head, sweet funky smell coming from the glass. Taste is sweet and fruity, and somewhat refreshing. It could be a good wheat beer if they got rid of that nasty sweet whatever it is in it. Not my cup of tea (or beer) here, but at least it is just one more rating. Maybe they will brew this beer with 20 different fruits so that Sean can request more ratings.

Very light pour with a very light fruit aroma. Was there even any pomegranite in here? Doubtful. The brew was blended alright but the flavor was so bland. Not much happening here.

Clear amber color/ no head. Big nutty, dusty dirt aromas. Light to medium body. Flavors of roasted nuts, dry cardboard, earthy potato peel, what the fuck.................

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.

This is super fruity and quite wheaty. Itís got a somewhat more of a grapefruit than pomegranate flavor, but overall itís just dominated by the wheat. The first pomegranate beer I didnít really like.

Boy, I do not like this one. The smell seemed "off" to me. Could have just been this bottle. Iím glad I only bought a single of this stuff. The taste was a bit too sour. I really couldnít pick up the flavor I was expecting and hoping to taste. I really didnít find this one satisfying in any way except appearance. I agree right on with KIOKI182. I think he nailed it.

This beer has very little redeemable features... Pomegranate is faintly noticeable and just tastes like a bad wheat beer... Better ones out there, skip this one...

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2009 Re-Rate (whilst a tad innebriated)
Aroma- Grain, husky. Some esters, but I donít percieve fruit. It doesnít have a terrible aroma, just not one associated with a wheat beer.
Appearance- Very clear (even when very cold), big head. Pale straw color. Not representative of pomegranate.
Flavor- Huge grain/husky flavor. Medium sweetness, A tart fruitiness, which must be a pomegranate flavor, it is not pronounced though. Some medium bitterness. Not a great flavor.
Palate- Light body, with medium sweetness. Low-Medium carbonation.
Overall- I donít like it alot, but itís not bad. Fort Collins makes a quality beer, this is what it is. I donít like the grainy flavor though. The pomegranate is not pronounced, and it is artificial. I donít think pomegranate beers are a good idea, because no lucrative business could afford to buy enough to make it worthwhile.
