Bottle from Capone’s. Pours dark straw with white head. Nose is hopcitrus, some pomegranate and acai fruitiness. Tastes fruity, medium to light palate, refreshing on this 100 degree day. Not bad.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a thin white head and a touch of orange near the top. Aroma of wheat, raspberries, grapes, coriander seed and probably pomegranate, although I’m not versed enough in that fruit. Medium-bodied; Deep pungent bitter fruit flavours with some potent wheat, a touch of sweetness and a lot of dry fruit tastes. Aftertaste is fairly bitter, and somewhat refreshing - a lot of fruit, but pungent and strong. Overall, a pretty standard fruity wheat beer - too strong in the flavours and not enough restraint in ingredients. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Chevy Chase Wine & Spirits in Washington, DC on 15-February-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 27-February-2010.

Bottle: Pours a golden color with a small white head. The aroma was musty, wheat, fruit, and malts. The flavor was yeast, malts, hint of berry, dish water and grass. Overall, not too flavorful or tastful. Average.

Peak Pomegranate was a close-out for me @ Union Jack’s in G-side. Three bucks for the pint got me pale fruity Wheat Ale with a soft finish. I don’t usually drink fruit beers Thanksgiving weekend, but happy to try this one.

On draft at Binny’s Southloop. Pours a clear soda-fizzy slightly purple golden with a thin fizzy head. Aroma is fairly crisp with seemingly sweet fruit syrup. Flavor follows, crisp, cereal, pomegranate is midway between syrupy fake and real, not bad.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle… Clear golden ale with orange highlights and a small, fizzy, white head. Nice retention. The aroma provides buttery sweetness and lightly toasted grains, but is a touch medicinal. Medium-bodied with a fatty mouthfeel and lively carbonation. The flavor is sweet, buttery and lightly fruity with modest, metallic bitterness. Sweet, buttery finish.
