COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

thedm (5006) - Fort Wayne, USA - APR 1, 2007
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foam with a frothy top fine to large sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a transparent typically carbonated orange colored body. The aroma was malty musty and fruity. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The weird flavor was not to my liking. A horrible one that I would not buy again.

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

Bottle: Fruity aroma. Nice wheat beer flavor with fruity aftertaste, not sure if its pomegranate though. It’s an ok beer.

HonkeyBra (3643) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2009
Golden pour with barely any head. Aroma of light perfumy fruit. Flavor tastes like fake fruit, like an alco-pop. Didnít like this one too much.

JMerritt (1867) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Bottled. Pale gold with a bubbly, bright white head. Rather straightforward, boring semi-sour wheat nose. Sour grain flavor, Iím not sure I can detect any pomegranate at all in either the aroma or flavor, honestly. The end result is just a sub-par, overly carbonated wheat ale, to me.

rumproasts (3575) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 23, 2012
golden with small head. i canít detect an iota of pomegranate or any other fruit for that matter. just a watery wheat beer. whoever says this is the "most unique beer ever brewed" should have their head examined.
