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!

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
