COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A unique blend of a traditional Belgian style Saison and fresh pomegranate juice. This blend results in a refreshing and slightly tart beer. The pomegranate juice is added during secondary fermentation to preserve the delicious fruit flavors.

A very nice, unique saison. Pours a bright cloudy orange with a white head that dissipates quickly. Smells of pomegranate and some strawberry. Very fruity taste, with a dry champagne like finish. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy orange amber beer, no head. Sweet toffee fruit nose. Smooth dry palate. Sweet Pomegranate well integrated with sweet malt. Sweet banana undertone. Pomegranate makes this fruit beer stand out from the crowd. Smooth and sweet.

Canít remember where I got this, but cracked this open after it had aged for over a year at my Momís crib in SF. Nice cloudy medium orange pour, with fairly faint carbonation and a thick head. Very tart nose, with the pomegranate far more assertive than Iíd expected. Body was lightly effervescent, with a slight acetic quality to the palate. The tastes disappointed a bit, because the pom flavors completely overpower anything to do with a saison, to my tastes. Bummer.
