otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 23, 2012
Appearance: clear straw hues under a white head which fades lacy along the sides with a big solid white puddle resting contently in the middle. Gentle suspended haze – translucent. Swirls average.
Nose: fresh loaves of white bread. Raw pomegranate and rhubarb – a touch of tartness. Candied pineapple. Aloe in the back. In the middle - raw dough being kneaded with a splash of flour so it doesn’t stick.
Palate: has an unexpected tartness which I like. Sourdough bread with a balsamic vinaigrette brushing. Fresh pomegranate along the sides and raw rhubarb underneath. Very tight and clean. Hint of apple vinegar. Faint essence of freshly rained on tropical fruits. Sourdough bread holds it all together; not an overall chewy beer though.
Final Thoughts: intriguing and different than what I was expecting. Good but a tad thin all around. A touch more ‘oomph’ and it would have been a multi-quaffer. I can see the Pomegranate Wheat Ale working well with sushi and seviche.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - JAN 15, 2012
(Bottle (best before 12/11)) Pours gold-light amber, lightly hazy. Four fingers of white head, receding to a lumpy cap. Light aroma of fruit. Mouthfeel is medium-thin, fairly smooth, lightly prickly. Flavor is pleasantly fruity in the fore, then tapers off into a more wooden wheaty-maltiness. Alternating sweet and sour, leaning more toward sweet.

The Peak Organic brews have been pretty popular for us lately, and we’ve been looking to expand the selection a bit. We reviewed the Peak Organic "Weiss Principal" a couple weeks ago, and now we’re moving on to a more ’user-friendly’ brew from their facility up in Maine. The Pomegranate Wheat pours a light amber color, with a fair amount of light, fluffy, white foam. The foam subsides pretty quickly, with very little lacing left behind. It’s got a great nose to it though, light, fruity, yet not sweet, per se. You can smell the pomegranate, but it’s not over-powering; there’s just enough of the fruity aromas to let you know they’re present. The palate is even more enjoyable! It’s smooth, easy drinking on the palate, yet still has a little big of body. It’s easily got more body than your average "light" beer, but it’s not a mouthful either. Again there’s enough pomegranate that you can’t ignore its presence, but it’s seamless and well-balanced. Is this my favorite of the fruit-influenced brews I’ve had? Not necessarily. But, I would recommend it, as I think it’s a better-crafted brew than a variety of other fruit-beers I’ve had. I don’t want to throw anyone under the bus, but you know who you are.

HogTownHarry (6371) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2012
12oz bottle from Premier Gourmet. Ah, the things we do for ticks. Hazy gold with a huge lasting fluffy white head (3+). Smells sweet, dry, spicy and grape-y - not much beer there (6-). Taste - pomegranate, sweenter and paper, some alcohol - kind of like a light cooler gone wrong. Watery, sugary, still, sweet on the palate then a bit harsh. Next.

Bottle from Craft. Slightly hazed golden pour with aromas and tasstes of wheat, banana, corriander and some tart grape. It’s ok, not bad.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 26, 2011
12oz bottle shared by argo0: Pours a clear deep golden with a thin wispy white head. Has a lightly sweet pale malty nose with some floral fruity notes and grassy hops. Starts with a thin lightly effervescent body and sweet sugary character with a touch of tart pomegranate juice before a dull finish. Pretty bland overall.

Slightly hazy gold with a thin white head; clingy medium body with high carbonation.

Aroma: tart wheat, bright fruity berries, pale malt, and a bit of funky chicken coop character.

Taste: tart wheat, sourness, sweet cereal-like pale malt, some berry character, and a faint chicken coop note.

GT2 (9412) - Oceanside, California, USA - AUG 29, 2011
355mL. The pour is a clear straw with a decent, white head. Nose is concord grape jam, Welch’s grape juice, butter. Taste is sweet concord grape juice with a hefty dose of butter. Tart palate moving to more diacetyl. Pretty straightforward brewing flaw.

Bottle courtesy of argo0, thanks! Pale yellow color, small white head. Aroma Of fruit and cranberry. Taste is sweet and fruity but with a dry and slightly sour finish. Interesting.
