2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ O’Donavan’s. Only beer they had that I haven’t had. I knew this wasn’t going to be that good but hell I’m up for a new beer seeing that the only other good beer there is SN pale ale. This poured a weak golden color with light head. Smell like wheat, malts, artificial berry (like candy), cough syrup. The taste is similar. Not alot more to say about this beer just another tick.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle. Very lively pour on this beer; it aggressively overflowed the glass despite a slow pour down the side. Massive white head that faded quickly despite its size to an uneven film. The aroma is pomegranate and husky wheat grain. The flavor is exactly the same as the aroma with pomegranate and husky grains. Medium bitterness at the finish which lingers on the palate for about 10 seconds beyond the swallow.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours clear deep gold with towering rocky off white head. The aroma has mild sweet fruity notes and hints of dusty grainy wheat. The taste has a mild carbonation enhanced sour fruitiness that persists in the background as sweeter dark berry, sweet malts and grainy wheat well up then fade away into the finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear gold into a tumbler. Bright white head quickly recedes to skim surface. Sour fruit aromas. Tastes like it smells...lasting bitter root finish.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Smells a little fruity and sweet. some sediment onthe bottom of the bottle creates a swirl in the glass. First taste comes on almost like a sour lambic then goes into this alky ale aftertaste. Its almost like they forgot to throw away the pomegranite rind. Interestingly bitter follow thru. Bitterness hangs on and on, like medicine. It would be nice if this stuff remained sour like the start thru-out the whole evolution of the taste sensations. Way to bitter for a good wheat beer. Yes, they forgot to ditch the peel of the pomigranite on this one. Finish is rather rude.

Tastes and smells like fake fruit injected into a basic run of the mill american wheat. Nothing special here.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A boring and typical pom/wheat beer. Aroma was weak. A small tanginess of citrus detected but hard to find. Pour was a light cloudy orange with a one finger off white head. Taste was sweet in the beginning then a hint of citrus and wheat in the aftertaste. Problem is the flavor is very weak and one dimensional. Not terrible for a summer beer but very average overall.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at Hyun’s bachelor party. Wheat aroma accented by a vague fruit note. Flavor was wheat, a bit of coriander, and a fruity sourness on the finish that was rather refreshing. Easy to drink, and one of the few beers where pomegranate actually seemed to come through a bit. Not as bad as I had feared.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pomegranate Wheat Ale with Acai (and coriander). 12oz brown glass twist-top. "Best Enjoyed Before Sept 09."
Appearance: Almost no head, thin white lace. Yellow amber and clear.
Nose: Sweet wheat and blue fruit aromas, like artificial blueberries.
Palate: Somewhat plastic-y fruit flavors, blueberry comes to mind again, and underfermented wheat malt. Very artificial tasting.
Notes: Weak fruit beer. And why would you add coriander to a fruit beer? I just don’t understand.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange-red gold, with fair white head / Sweet, pomegranate nose / Sweet, moderately syrupy with low carbonation and hopping and fair finish / Flavors of burnt sugar, syrup, pomegranate, and wheat / Somewhat clumsy - more hops and carbonation might help.
