The beer arrives from the tap with a pink-amber hue, quite hazy and there is a thin white head on top. The aroma smells lightly tart, a bit floral and somewhat like hibiscus, but it isn’t really all that pronounced.

The flavor is tart with a light sweetness and a fruitiness that reminds me of watermelon, berries and of course pomegranate. This is actually quite refreshing and it is definitely dominated by the pomegranate contribution. This is almost note really a beer, though the finish does have a touch of hardy wheat flavors to it. This is definitely an easily quaffed, refreshing, summer time like brew. It is pretty enjoyable for what it is; simplistic, refreshing, fruity and with a tartness that is quite nice.

Tap at Papago. Damn I love that place. Red pour. Sweet cherries, light tart pomegranate juice and some yeasty in the aroma. Flavor is much like a cherry sweet tart with some yeast and light spice. Interesting. But I wont drink it again.

On tap at Pete’s in Danville. Whoa.. I was a little embarrassed to receive this one at the bar. Pink beer? Purple head? This is surely a chic beer. The aroma is nice and predictable, wheat and berries. Tastes very berry sweet with some wheat breadiness behind it. Light bodied and refreshing.

Oregon Brew Fest: light red in color flavor is a decent mix of malt and pomegranate but both are pretty weak.

A very ncie fruit ale. I would have though pomegranate would be too delicate to brew with, but it turns out alright. Very light, berry sweetness, crisp and good for the summer.

on tap at papago1/2/2010. hazy pink pale pomegranate juice colored amber with a white head. slightly tart aroma... faint pomegranate, dust, a touch of pale grainy sweetness and minerals. the flavor is the same only... kinda shallow and middle of the road. it is light to medium bodied with low carbonation and a watery mouth feel. this would be a lot more refreshing if they turned up the bubbles... 6/3/6/3/13/3.1

On tap at the brewpub on 6/30/09. Pours hazy pink, white head. Funky currant, berry and bread aroma that is very enticing. However, the flavors don’t meld well. It’s a strange complexity and I admire the effort. Very drinkable summer brew, but it is a bit too off the wall for me. If that’s what they were going for, then nice job.

6/17/10. On tap in a pint glass. The pour is creepily red and juicy. The aroma is a bit musty, some rotten fruit, and huge sweet fruitiness. The flavor is big sweet sugar at first followed by an array of fruits, like fruit punch, finidhing finally with a faint reminder that it is in fact beer.
