3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2013 Smells like pomegranite but taste is more like a lager. Pretty good, but nothing too spectacular.

Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. This is an aged example of the beer. The aroma is vinous, woody, with a hint of tartness in the background. The flavor is malty, toffee, fruity, hints of tartness. Not a bad beer, would be better fresh.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Appearance: very hazy darker amber color, small tan head that dissipates quickly
Aroma: malty caramel, pretty faint, pomegranate
Taste: deep roasted malt, almost a coffee flavor, some pomegranate
Palate: higher carbonation, leaves an alcohol and slightly pomegranate aftertaste,
Overall: very big let down for me, I guess the flavor of the pomegranate is not citrusy enough, it tastes like alcohol
