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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Hop City in Atlanta, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a clear, orange-golden body with a well-sized, lasting layer of white foam.
Smell: Sweetish, butterscotch-scented malts with a fruity aroma sweeping in and smelling strongly of pomegranate (the IT fruit of yesterday) and acai berries (the IT fruit of today) with a minute hint of coriander.
Taste: Malted wheat and barley with a sweet touch of butterscotch candy. Then in comes the fruity additions of lightly tart pomegranate and Oprah-approved acai berries, the latter of which has tasted vaguely reminiscent of blackberries on the (very) few times I’ve tried them. Touch of leafy coriander. Light, clean hop bitterness that along with the added coriander helps to provide some balance. Finishes semi-dry and lightly crisp with a lingering fruitiness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: It’s fruity, it’s wheaty, it’s sweetish and fine for the one bottle. I’m happy to be getting an extra dose of antioxidants to cancel out all those cell-damaging free radicals while also pickling my liver.
