COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with the juice of over 10,000 luscious pomegranates, ORIGIN is a complex, rich and balanced Imperial Amber Ale with a truly unique character. The pomegranate juice is added during fermentation, leaving only the residual sugars, which serve to balance the hop bitterness.

Well, lets start with aroma. Mild pomegranate, definite sweetness. Taste is pomegranate, lots of sugars, alcohol definitely comes through. Reminds me I am drinking a beer and not just pomegranate juice! A lot of these rater must have not had pomegranate before trying this... compare the two please!

WanderinCelt87 (132) - Hamburg, New Jersey, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Pours a clear amber with an off white head. Has almost no aroma. Taste is smooth and clean with a little sweet. Leaves a tart after taste.

phaleslu (5875) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2014
22 oz. bottle from Jungle Jim’s-Eastgate. Pours a somewhat cloudy tea color with a small ring for a head. Notes of caramel, pomegranate, tea, some woody and leafy earthiness, and a little bit of candied nuts. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth, moderately boozy mouthfeel. Better than ratings indicate.

Pours a cloudy amber with a finger thick tan head. Smell is not strong but it does smell like pomegranate. Taste is almost wine-like fruity and slightly hoppy with a lasting sour/bitterness. Mouthfeel is good with light carbonation. This is a good example of what a fruit beer can be not too sweet or sour.

Butters (3685) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Bomber pours a hazy golden copper with very faint ring of clearish white head. Very sweet and a little medicinal. Definitely better as an additive in their blended rejuvenations, but not as a stand alone offering. a little tart and a little bitter. meh.

gschrade (462) - Collinsville, USA - NOV 13, 2013
I had this at Global Brew. Pours amber in color with a off white head. Taste fruity, malt, sweet, earthy. I thought this was so so. I would pass on this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

degbert (1005) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark red-amber with a rocky, cream head with massive amounts of lace. Nose is intensely fruity with woody and herbal overtones. Not as sweet as I was expecting on the tongue, but there’s definite pomegranate, nutmeg, wood, herbal/hops bitterness, and vanilla. There’s a lot going on in this beer, and the finish just keeps opening up wider. Great complexity, and definitely worth a long look. I like it a lot.
