3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Blind Pig Champaign. I had this at two separate bars on the same day in samples. Medici needed to clean their lines as they have a pedio infection in one of them. Pours a brilliant cranberry juice red with a fizzy head that manages to stick around. Nose is quite fruity and tart. On taste, the fruit comes through, lending a bunch of astringency that somehow works. Quenching, though not much else going on.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Blind Pig Brewery in Champaign, IL. Pours a reddish amber with a pale pink head that totally dissipates. Aroma of wheat malts and pomegranate. Lighter side of medium bodied with a refreshing texture and soft carbonation. Flavor of pale wheat malts, kool aid powder, and pomegranite with a good amount of residual sweetness. Not much bitterness and perhaps a tad thin. A solid summer fruit beer for hot weather, but nothing complex.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at 1702, Tucson December 2009
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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
