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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can’t remember where I got this, but cracked this open after it had aged for over a year at my Mom’s 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 I’d 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.
