A fluid brew, color is amazingly strong copper and red amber. This is no lighweight. Strong fruit presence makes the rounds, berries and then some figs. Then the pomergranite settles in nicely. Gives the brew a nice backbone and complements the malt. This is another fine and easy sipper from peaks. Solid.

pours a nice orange color. Iím getting a mild strawberry aroma. leaves a nice lacing on the glass. this is pretty sharp. the pomegranate really strikes hard like a bitter hop. the wheat peeks through at the end.

Aurelius (4120) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 29, 2010
Overly "organic" message on the cluttered label. Honey-colored, lightly hazed beer with a white head. Clean, springy aroma at first which transforms to a slightly sticky kidís cereal (froot and grain) aroma. This was a stumbling brew - out-of-balance grain bitterness, a bit astringent, canít see that the pom and/or acai added anything other than a marketing hook. Tangy, lightly sweet. Lingering woody-bitter finish, medium body. New Leaf Market.

12/28/10. Dammit, Kevin, why do you always rate things just before me?!?! Arrrrrgh! Anyway, 12oz bottle. Hazy golden pour with a small, fluffy off-white head that fades to a film quickly. Light soft wheat aroma with a hint of biscuit and juuuuust a dash of sour fruit if you search for it. Very plain and light aroma with a kick of sour fruitiness, but I canít say Iíd be able to identify what fruit(s) if not on the label. Eh.

PorterPounder (5471) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 23, 2010
Tallahassee, Fl - New leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Slightly murky medium golden pour with a sticky, silky white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma is somewhat neutral, hint of fresh lake water and just whiff of berries. Flavor is tart with some of the acai berry flavor coming through. A bit of yeastiness adds a bit of back end balance. Finish is slightly buttery. Mouthfeel is crisp. Better than expected.

Pours a two finger white head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Hazy amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Light fruity nose. Flavor is wheat, fruity and some sweetness. Some bitterness. Best before Jan 2010. $1.80 for a 12oz bottle from Beverage Warehouse Winooski, VT.

I really donít wish to write too much about this beer because I didnít give it too much attention to be quite honest. The aroma was fruity and somewhat hoppy. I didnít get too much of the pomegranate fruit flavor from it but it was just what expected. Somewhat hoppy and right there in the middle.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2010
12oz. Bottle: Aroma of Ringwood yeast, diacetyl, wheat, and a hint of fruit. Poured amber/gold in color with a large, creamy, dense, off-white head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Sparkling. Very good lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of Ringwood yeast, diacetyl, light pomegranate, light raspberry, slight malt, and a hint of wheat. Medium body. Slightly viscous, then lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Ringwood yeast, diacetyl, and slight malt finish is slightly dry.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUL 25, 2010
Bottle. Poured pale with a huge off-white head that was lasting and left thick lace. Tart aroma of pomegranate, grain, and light mustiness. The flavor was a little subdued with pomegranate and malt. Light body and watery.

Beerdedone (2609) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2010
Sampled at vt brewfest 2010. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a white head. Aroma of wheat and faint fruit. Crisp flavor of wheat, sweet malts and some fruity tartness.
