Tmoney99 (14273) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 2, 2007
Bottle from Keg Liqours. Poured a clear dark amber color with a large off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sweet citrus aroma. Medium body with sticky texture. Moderate bitter flavor with a smooth moderate bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Interesting beer.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - MAY 17, 2007
Nice amber color,small white head that faded quickly but still managed to leave a slight lace behind.Grapefruity aroma with a slight wheat side and little more.I think they need to rethink there fruit,because this just does not work for me.The flavor is more of a weak IPA starting out with a flavor of grapefruit with a slight tangy side that i guess is kind of pomegraniteish.and it pretty much stays in the bitter sour area of the pallate....This just doesnít work for me,nice try going for this kind of fruit but,eather there isnít enough pomegranite or it just resembles to much of a flavor of an ipa and itís hop profile then anything for me.

ganache (5773) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 17, 2007
Bottle. Aroma is sweetly of indeterminate fruitiness and slight wheat. I guess thatís pomegranate. Body a cloudy golden, little white head. Taste is sharp, surprisingly bitter and grainy and tart with notes of wheat and grapefruit. Slightly acidic, and again, I think thatís pomegranate, but itís too indistinct for surety. Medium body, bitter fruity aftertaste. Different yes, but kinda off-putting.

puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 10, 2007
Very disappointing. I wasnít expecting much, but I was hoping for at least *some* fruit. There was none to be found. If there really was even a slightly significant amount of pomegranite juice in this, wouldnít it at least be slightly pinkish? Because itís not, at all. Just flat out yellow. This is a totally boring, bland, worthless american wheat. They should take the "pomegranate" off the label entirely.

I donít normally like wheat beers, but I did like this one. It was definately different. Not as sweet as many wheats Iíve tried, a fact I appreciated.

JK (6058) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - APR 15, 2007
Not bad but nothing special. This is a medium bodied American wheat with some sour pomegranate added. The flavors do work well together, and this is very drinkable. Aroma has some wheat. Sour, wheat flavor. A good summer beer.

Skyview (5868) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 14, 2007
From a 12-oz bottle, shared at JKís Spring Gathering. From 12 oz bottle it pours a hazy golden yellow with a fizzy white head. A bit of sticky lacing with light carbonation. Aroma of buckwheat, tart grape, lemons and pomegranate. Taste of mild wheat malt, sweet/tart pomegranate, crab apples and lemons. Light and dry finish to the palate.
