On tap at urban family public house. Smells great; nice carbonation, thin body, very drinkable; not bad, but pretty uninteresting.

Shared by BrianK. Nice fruity tart pomegranate nose. Hint of tart fruit. Murky amber brown body with a pink head. Moderate sharp carbonation a hint of nail polish and effervescent tart fruit. Very good. Unique and ill bump it a bit for that.

Courtesy of mmtmatrix. thanks malcolm. OK, i really wish it weren’t midnight and i was drinking this outside on a nice warm day. This is one refreshing beer. Great flavor from the pomegranite. Enjoyable on many levels. Very mellow and subdued flavor.

375 ml corked and caged green bottle. A witbier base with pomegranates. Primary fermentation with a witbier yeast, bottle conditioned with champagne yeast.
Pours a beautiful light ruby color, with a slight haze until the lees are swirled and decanted. The brew becomes murky with large flocs of particulates in suspension below a substantial pink-hued head. Rocky and dense, the head slowly falls to the surface, leaving some very nice lacing and a thick ring around the edge of the body.
Aromatics are slightly tart and fruity. Some mild citrus notes behind a delicate pomegranate veil. An earthy, yeasty nod continues with a lemony finish.
The mouthfeel is almost spritzy but still creamy. A light lactic twang keeps it lively on the tongue.
The pallet is juicy an fruit-laden. The pomegranate is much more evident than in the nose. Similar to cranberry, but not as tart.
The wit character lies underneath, and is very complimentary to the fruit. Orange zest with a hint of lemony tartness is subdued, and there is a trace of vanilla.
Finishes with a lingering tartness and plenty of fruit. Quite refreshing and lively.

Received from nice manager who got it from the rep along with misprinted .4 L NB glass. I got a picture of the bottle which I’ll send in.
Surprisingly pink and clear with a sharp aroma that is fruity. Nice white head. Very refreshing with a chalky taste that wouldn’t leave my palate. Feels heavy in alcohol.

Had this one at the brewery on V-Day. A nice blend of the juice with the beer. Great beer for the time of year, clean and refreshing.

Caged and corked split gratiously provided by my NBB rep. Hazy blush with little head. Tart and sweet yeasty cookie dough aroma with some wheat. Tart in flavor upfront followed by fresh pomegranite juice and finishing dry and puckering with spicy, earthy notes. Quite still on the palate. The lighthearted cousin of Quelque Chose.
