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.

jgb9348 (4961) - 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 (2206) - 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.

Ughsmash (7263) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 6, 2007
Bomber. Poured a clear medium amber with a quickly-receding cap of white head. Aroma picked up sweet caramel and toffee with some mild pomegranate influence.. picked up some booze too. The flavor came across as a very strong amber.. toasty caramel and sweet grapefruit at the core with a rather mild tart pomegranate influence.. quite tasty. Heavier-bodied and grainy at times.. long, warm finish. Not bad.. not really good, but not bad.

PilsnerPeter (3029) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAY 4, 2007
Bottle: Pours amber with perfect clarity and a collapsing white head. Aroma isn’t really fruity with mainly crystal malt, subtle peppery hop notes, and ethanol. Has lots of alcohol in the flavor as well. Has a decent mouthfeel with smooth carbonation. There’s an artificial sweetness upfront (almost saccharine like). The only fruityness I can detect is a hint of citrus like qualities.The bitterness in the finish has slightly hop like notes, but it’s extremely metallic. An unbalanced beer, and definitly not a fruit beer.

WBF-Raleigh. Clear amber body with a small white head. Swet caramel aroma with hints of fruit. Sweet fruity flavor but still dominated by caramel.
