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.

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

Oy! I knew this one was going to be bad. Very acidic, artificial fruit flavours present throughout. Harsh bitterness, bit of a cloying character and some type of hop in here, but that fake fruit flavour is just too much for me to handle. Thin body and a finish that can’t end soon enough.

Golden honey colored with thin white head. Aroma is a bit sweet and grassy. Taste is thin and slightly bitter with a crackery finish. $5/22oz

jgb9348 (4716) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 18, 2007
Amber coloured/orange body with a very thin white head. Aroma of rye, fruits, cherries, hops, pomme (of course from knowing it) and raisins. Medium-bodied; Rye flavours up front with alcohol and raisins noticeable. A strong and very gross flavour throughout. Overall, not such a great beer - good for Jewish people if they have to drink it, but othewise - not worth drinking. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased at Whole Foods in Vienna, Virginia on 18-May-2007.

bomber pours amber/copper with an avg bubbly head. aromas of wet-hopping and light citrus. it smells fresh, rather, refreshing. the thicker pomengranite sneaks into the aroma through the backdoor. malty mouthfeel with a strong finish of pomengranite. it’s a well balanced ale infused with pomengranite juice. it tastes like it, but the hopping process lends itself to the bitterness mid-palate.

22oz bomber. Filtered with a ruby amber hue. Medium bubbled off-white head. Mild caramel malt flavor mixed with a fruity cinnamon pomegranate aromas. Mild and medium bodied with nice biscuit malt flavor. Nice tart fruitiness. Cranberry-ish flavors. Nice bitterness, akin to an extra light coffee malt roast. Big bitter aspect that ebbs as the beer warms. Easy with good flavors. Not too overly fruity. Has a pom flavor and aroma, but neither are overt or distracting. I thought it was nice.

This appeared on my desk at work. Mystery to who placed it there. Pours a crisp amber. Fizzy, hollow metalic aftertaste hits you after minimal body. Pommegranate? If they say so, I didn;’ taste any. Boring..pass on it.

SDalkoholic (2145) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAY 13, 2007
Color is a burnt red and the foam will develop only a small temporarily amount of white. The aroma is subdued with a small denotation of fruit but of what kind would of been a mystery to me if i was blindfolded. The following flavor is subtle and is at a minimum amount of sweet pomegranate. Not a fruit beer worth revisiting. May 13th, 2007 Purchased from Ashur Liquor Imperial Beach

Thanks Jason. The beer pours to an orange body with a thin white head. The aroma is grainy and has sweet pomegranate juice. The flavor is sweet barley silage and sweet juice. The palate is sweet and average.
