3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beer #27 at GTMW í09. The server told me this was a Pomegranate hard lemonade. But the program only shows the regular brew. Well, after this many beers, I start hearing a lot of things. Certainly smells like a radler, lot of lemon flavor. But plenty of malts. Taste mostly lemony, but no sourness, seems to be balanced by malts. Very cloudy yellow in appearance. Smell is very lemony. Does go down nicely and helps wash down my chicken sandwich and fried cheese curds.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a cloudy copper/gold with a decent head and lacing. Aroma was of lemons, pomagranite and malts. Taste was similar - sweet lemonade, malts, pomagranite with a very light hop finish. Mouth was decent. Overall, a nice sweet fruit beer from Sand Creek. Itís probably a notch better than the straight Hard Lemonade.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured murky medium golden with a short white head.. it did not look appetizing. The aroma picked up sweetened lemonade and fairly sweet pomegranate.. some tanginess and alcohol warmth present.. not bad, but it didnít smell like something I wanted to drink. The flavor found tart lemon zest and pomegranate on the tip of the tongue, with sweetened lemon meat and lesser bready malts behind.. finished grainy with sweet lemon and a kiss of pomegranate. Light-bodied with low carbonation on the palate.. this grew on me a bit, but it was too sweet.

Nice tropical fruit scent and is rather cloudy yellow in color. Nice pomegranate flavor bursts through, touch too sweet.

On tap at the GTMW 2011. Hazy witbier yellow with a creamy ecru head. Sweet and tart aroma of lemonade with a touch of added pomegranate, sweet malt. Taste is sweet and tart, mostly lemonade with the pomegranate and fruit way in the background. Malted and sweet through and through.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Special tapping at 4 pm. On draught during GTMW 2010 Festival in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear pale yellowish straw colored brew with a thin white head that has some good retention and lacing. Aroma of sweetened lemonade and tart pomegranate, light golden grain malt and a touch of sour cherry. Taste is medium bodied, smooth, soft-carbonated with a blend of lemonade and sour cherry and pomegranate. Finish is semi-tart with golden malt, lemon and tart pomegranate aftertaste. I had to admit, this is the best flavored shandy of all three to come out of Sand Creek.
