12 oz bottle dated best before 12/2012; from Nov. 2011 notes. Appearance: Pours a clear, orange-golden color, slightly darker than your typical wheat beer, with a full and lasting off-white head that has the slightest purple tinge. Visible carbonation. Smell: Sweet, very wheaty, with a fruity aroma of pomegranate (and presumably acai berries; I’m not sufficiently familiar with this aroma to pick it out for sure). There’s also a hint of coriander. Unfortunately for me, the mix is too reminiscent of perfumed soap, albeit mixed with baked bread. The aroma did improve markedly with airing/warming. Taste: Malted wheat with pomegranate and acai berries. In contras to the aroma, this produces a very pleasant and inviting taste that with a light-to-moderate fruitiness and a touch of coriander. Nicely sweet when ti hits the tongue, it soon becomes clear that the balance is lightly tart as well as possessing a light hop bitterness. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Notably smooth but lightly crisp. Semi-dry finish. O: A nicely constructed fruit-flavored, pale wheat. I’ll be happy to have another down the road, especially on a hot day.

Strong yeasty barley nose with an unripe berry accent. Bubbly clear amber, thin head. Yeasty tart pomegranate flavor. Doughy wheat finish, not too harsh. Exactly what it purports to be. Solid, refreshing.

Pours a translucent gold with a white paperthin head. Aroma of wheat, berries and sweet malt. Taste is fruity, cranberries, slight bitterness and sweet on the finish. A bit syrupy for a wheat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
