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.

mjg74 (2821) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUN 7, 2007
Bomber from Keil’s. Dark reddish color upon pouring. Rich malty aroma, slightly sweet. Roasted malty flavors with a bit of hoppy bitterness. Seems somewhat spicy. Some fruitiness in the background. Fairly bitter finish. Not bad.

Aubrey (3488) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2007
Nice copper color with a lofty and frothy head. Soft texture; slight thickness yet light on the tongue. Malts were toasty and very nutty. Pinch of sourness. Sweet fruity syrup. Pomegranate in the background. Balancing bitterness. Warmth slowly built. Decent beer.

This fruit beer pours a slightly purplish copper color from a 22 oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is slightly fruity, pomegranate and earthy. A medium bodied ale. Malts are fruity and sweet. Touch of pomegranates and grapefruity. Hops are earthy. Nice balance between the fruit and the malts and hops. Good carbonation. Interesting beer. You can taste the fruit and the malts, they tend to blend and yet still keep their separate identities. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 1, 2007
THOUGHTS: The initial aroma is a bit hoppy but at it warms it turns very fuity. I liked Genesis 10:10 and while this isn’t as complex as that, it is a much easier to drink version. A nice beer and a great fruit beer. I alway thought the best fruit beers were ones where you could taste eaual parts fruit and beer and this is definitely that. Fruity malty flavor with a nice hoppy finish. Mostly well balanced, with a slight edge going to fruityness, but not overly sweet. If you take a big gulp it is very fruity. Definitely fruity, but you never forget you’re drinking a beer. Reminds my first and only experience with Celis Raspberry nearly 10 years ago. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, medium orangy amber with an average-sized, white head that mostly diminished and left fair lacing. The aroma was light to moderate malt and moderate hops at first giving way to fruit (which was pomegranite I guess) as it warmed. The initial flavor was moderately to heavily sweet and lightly acidic and bitter, while the finish was moderately swee and bitter and lightly acidic with an average to long duration. The flavor was also a little spicey. The medium body was somewhat dry and slightly syrupy with lively carbonationa and a somewhat metallic finish.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 31, 2007
22oz bottle. Golden orange with a small white head. Toasty, slightly nutty malt aromatics with a ruddy earthen component. Grainy, somewhat carboardy malt up front. Some caramel then manifests, with tinges of vegetal character. Lingering stale caramel and ruddy malt in the finish, with some earthy bitterness. Mouthfeel is a light medium, somewhat dry.

probstblueribbon (3297) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2007
Bomber from Atlanta, served cold in a wine glass. MA01/07

App.: Medium-dark amber, clear with a small off-white head. Aroma: Smells American; caramel, toffee and medium-roasted malts, some cherries, peaches and other stone fruits; I guess some pomegranate? Palate: Medium body, medium carbonation, a bit astringent. Flav.: Too much caramel, toffee and sweet malt; some cherries and fruit; some c-hops; finishes off-dry with moderate bitterness.

BBB63 (6440) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 27, 2007
Bottle and served in my other NB worthy glass: Clear amber hue with ruby highlights topped by a faint frothy head and some lace. The aroma has notes of artefactual pomegranate fruit juice, massive phenolic activity, and some bready malts. Is my palate trashed from the DFH Fort or is this beer not that good either? Well, the flavor is quite cardboardy and the fruit flavor is very fake and does not play it forward as it should. Grassy and herbal bitterness dominates the flavor flav profile. The mouth feel is sprite and lively but thin as well with a bone dry balsa wood finish.

I normally like the Hebrew line of brews more than the average ratebeerian, but this brew is actually rated too high. I normally like Pomegranate but here it is dominated by a cardboardy taste and feel that does not fit.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAY 26, 2007
Bomber. Pours a clear orange with a creamy off-white head that leaves light lacing. The aroma finds orange slices at first then caramel, fruits, and light spices & milk chocolate come in as it warms. The flavor is hoppy with orange citrus (or maybe pomegranate if I new what the hell that was), cherries, and a malt background. Medium to full body with a creamy texture.

bhensonb (12440) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 25, 2007
Aroma of fruit and malt. Must be pomegranate. Amber color with reddish hints - almost coppery. The vanished head was white. Starts carbonated, a bit tart, fruit flavor, followed by malt. Body is a bit thin.Then the mouth is mixed with fruit, tartness and malty sweetness. A bit malty. A bit carbonated. Not betting much bitter. Very interesting fruit ale.

I am shocked by the low ratings on this beer. it had a nice red brown appearance with a strong alcoholic malty nose. the flavor was complex with strong warmth of alcohol with the fruit flavor providing a nice balance at the end. pretty good
