Grainy malt and wheat aroma, and little pockets of what i presume is pomegranate, tart wheat and fruit sweetness in the taste, between the tart wheat and the fruity taste left on your tongue,theres a strange astringency,like you been sucking on an old fruit skin,a little disagreeable,interesting, could be a nice summer sipper but otherwise,pass

Off golden color with just the slightest red hue with a repsectable white head and carbonation. Aromas of citrus, wheat, and perhaps a hint of ponegranate. It contains flavors of wheat, sour citrus, and a rather distracting bitter hops finish which lingers on the palate (and not in a good way). Texture is correct for a wheat beer, although what I am really missing is the pomegranate! If they wished to make a beer highlighting the flavor of the fruit then they should have used more - I just couldnít detect any hint of the fruit in the flavor. It is pleasant to drink but I wish it had been much more upfront with the fruit.

12oz botttle. Hazy light golden color with a good sized white head. Subtle aromas of wheat, toasted malt, and citrus fruit. A bit sour up front, then the wheat becomes a bit more evident. Sweet towards the end; pomegranate juice flavor comes through. Not bad; fairly refreshing.

Slightly hazy golden amber with a pinkish hue and a full pillowy head. Aroma of wheat and underripe berries. Very tart and lightly sweet with a wheat and hop bitterness. Bitter finish that folds gradually into a malty smoothness. Crisp and tingly palate with a medium-light, refreshing body. As for the pomegranate...If I ever find out what a pomegranate actually tastes like Iíll know if this tastes like one. But it is a decent beer, a little on the tart side but not bad.

I was really looking forward to this beer and it let me down. It was quite tart but it seemed to have no taste of pomeranate. I thought it would be a ruby red beer but it was more of a wheat beer than a fruit beer.

aracauna (3539) - Georgia, USA - DEC 19, 2006
After seeing the pretty pink hue of my pomegranate mead, I was expecting a much redder beer, but there MAY be a slight reddish tint from the fruit that turns the blonde to a gold. The aroma is wheat and a bit of esters. A touch of bandaid. The fruit is definitely not forward and I wouldnít have guessed it was in there had I not already known from the label.

Explodes out of bottle with a five+ finger white head that fades to a shallow layer leaving a good lace. Cloudy amber color. Good carbonation and light-medium bodied. Fruity nose, is this what pomegranate smells like? Starts tart and fruity, different, canít really detect any wheat, tart almost sour finish. This would be a good summer beer. $1.49 for a 12oz bottle from Johnís Grocery Iowa City, IA.

Nice drinking beer, really... along the lines of the Peteís Wicked Strawberry Blonde, but different flavor.

Pours a light amber with constant effervescence under a skinny, white film of a head. Sweaty, eggy, fruity, dusty aroma with mild lagered notes. Once you get past the nose, itís pretty good. Tart with mild astringence, the up-front fruitiness (and that which lingers) is a pleasant cranberry. Iíve never actually tasted pomegranates, so if they taste like cranberries the flavor here is "on".
