Clear golden ale with generous carbonation, medium white head and slow lacing. Slightly sweet, fruity aroma. Mild tasting wheat beer, with slight berry note.

ChainGangGuy (4375) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 4, 2009
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 Iíve 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: Itís fruity, itís wheaty, itís sweetish and fine for the one bottle. Iím happy to be getting an extra dose of antioxidants to cancel out all those cell-damaging free radicals while also pickling my liver.

Draft. Poured gold. Strong fruity aromas and almost sickly sweet and syrupy. Not so great.

roder60 (1284) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2009
Pours slight hazy pale yellow with lots of fizzy white head. Aroma was tart lemon and other citrus. Flavor was very very tart and acidic followed by a slight sweetness in the finish. Beer a bit watery and out of balance. Could use a bit more in the way of body and sweet to balance out the huge tart beginning that really catches you off guard.

TURDFERGUSON (3954) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 16, 2009
Bottle. Golden with a thin white lace. Nose of pomegranate juice, wheat, butterscotch. Flavor is slightly bitter, some sweetness from the fruit, mounds of butter. Worse than expected.

daknole (9114) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 4, 2009
Bottle from Whole Foods. Gold pour, big white head. Very carbonated. A big dose of floral hops hits followed by a good amount of wheat and some fruit and berries. Flavor is much more bitter than I expected. The hops, wheat and pomegranate make for an interesting combo. But I donít want to drink one again.

hombrepalo (1828) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 3, 2009
On tap @ OíDonavanís. Only beer they had that I havenít had. I knew this wasnít going to be that good but hell Iím 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.

beerbill (3409) - Laurel, New York, USA - AUG 1, 2009
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.

Ibrew2or3 (6890) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 30, 2009
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.

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.
