Well, its about what you’d expect. Light bodied, a little wheaty, with strong fruity overtones. However, there was at least an interesting tartness to the fruit that was kind of funky, and if you used your imagination, you could almost think you had an unblended lambic in your hands. Not a very good one, but still. Near straw color. Side note: why does the commercial description make such a big deal about the acai addition, but the beer is named only after the pomegranate?

[3686-20110416] 12floz bottle. Light wheat apple fruit aroma has some soft bread dough notes. Slightly hazy, light brown orange body with a quick foamy off-white head. Fruity bread yeast flavour has a nice light long-lasting sweetness. Medium body. Interesting to sample but not to my tastes, better cold. (6/3/6-/3/11) 2.8

i kind of wish it has more of that pomegranate twang, but then i think it would be too syrupy. as it is, its not bad, but as with all these fruity wheats its light and in the end kind of bland compared to say a wit or hefe.

Pale cloudy yellow pour. The aroma is of spicy wheat, coriander and some light citrus as well. Fairly wheaty palate with some zesty fruitiness. A bit of ginger and fruit with some lingering yeasty spice. Fruity but not overdone.

2011-04-17. Lightly hazy golden yellow body with a small white head that fades. 3+ Modest aroma is pleasant, fruit, hints at coriander/citrus muted wheat. 6+ Flavour is similar, fruity, moderate pomegranate character, light bitterness. 6+ Average palate. Just okay, but an enjoyable rendition of a fruit wheat beer. If you like that type of beer, you will like this. Bottle shared by Radek

Sammy (8910) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2011
Another fruity wheat beer. A lightish beer, easy drinking. Faint extract taste. A little orange, a little corriander, and berry taste. Like a decent herbal tea. Not my cup of beer. Light colour, faint tastes. Average body. Carbonation is OK.
