The Peak Organic brews have been pretty popular for us lately, and weíve been looking to expand the selection a bit. We reviewed the Peak Organic "Weiss Principal" a couple weeks ago, and now weíre moving on to a more íuser-friendlyí brew from their facility up in Maine. The Pomegranate Wheat pours a light amber color, with a fair amount of light, fluffy, white foam. The foam subsides pretty quickly, with very little lacing left behind. Itís got a great nose to it though, light, fruity, yet not sweet, per se. You can smell the pomegranate, but itís not over-powering; thereís just enough of the fruity aromas to let you know theyíre present. The palate is even more enjoyable! Itís smooth, easy drinking on the palate, yet still has a little big of body. Itís easily got more body than your average "light" beer, but itís not a mouthful either. Again thereís enough pomegranate that you canít ignore its presence, but itís seamless and well-balanced. Is this my favorite of the fruit-influenced brews Iíve had? Not necessarily. But, I would recommend it, as I think itís a better-crafted brew than a variety of other fruit-beers Iíve had. I donít want to throw anyone under the bus, but you know who you are.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 5.9%.Appearance: It has a very light and tall frothy head that sits on top of a hazy medium amber colored body. The head quickly making some lacing only at the top of the glass.Smell: In the nose I pick up notes of sour candy, white grapes and a hint of raspberry fruity notes over sour dough bread. Very interesting. Taste / Palate: The taste is light to medium bodied and is a more subtle copy of the aroma. Sour candy and light white grapes mixed with berry like fruitiness within a sour dough wheat maltiness. Notes: It reminds me, in a way, of some lambic beers that I have had.

ChainGangGuy (4359) - 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.

NIce and sweet, a new organic to the list. NIce features and not so heavy aroma but easy to drink.

Strong yeasty barley nose with an unripe berry accent. Bubbly clear amber, thin head. Yeasty tart pomegranate flavor. Doughy wheat finish, not too harsh. Exactly what it purports to be. Solid, refreshing.

JoeMcPhee (8357) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2011
Pale cloudy yellow pour. The aroma is of spicy wheat, coriander and some light citrus as well. Fairly wheaty palate with some zesty fruitiness. A bit of ginger and fruit with some lingering yeasty spice. Fruity but not overdone.

chinchill (1776) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 22, 2013
12 oz bottle dated best before 12/2012; from Nov. 2011 notes. Appearance: Pours a clear, orange-golden color, slightly darker than your typical wheat beer, with a full and lasting off-white head that has the slightest purple tinge. Visible carbonation. Smell: Sweet, very wheaty, with a fruity aroma of pomegranate (and presumably acai berries; Iím not sufficiently familiar with this aroma to pick it out for sure). Thereís also a hint of coriander. Unfortunately for me, the mix is too reminiscent of perfumed soap, albeit mixed with baked bread. The aroma did improve markedly with airing/warming. Taste: Malted wheat with pomegranate and acai berries. In contras to the aroma, this produces a very pleasant and inviting taste that with a light-to-moderate fruitiness and a touch of coriander. Nicely sweet when ti hits the tongue, it soon becomes clear that the balance is lightly tart as well as possessing a light hop bitterness. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Notably smooth but lightly crisp. Semi-dry finish. O: A nicely constructed fruit-flavored, pale wheat. Iíll be happy to have another down the road, especially on a hot day.
