SDalkoholic (2371) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle from BevMo: The liquid was a simple golden blonde color and formed a tiny patch of foam for a head. In the aroma, a soft touch of grained malt and wheat come through and allow for a minor scent of hops but no signs of pomegranate. The flavor is bland with a taste of funky steeped grains and a strange finish of sourness that could be due to the addition of the fruit.

Wanted to love this, but the fruit flavors are muddled and drinkability isnít event that great.

A mediocre fruit beer. The pomegranate mixes with the citrus in the beer but the sweetness is a bit overpowering.

A perfect beer for after a 12-mile bike ride. Definitely has that sweet-tart thing going for it. The low ABV lets you quench your thirst with the first one, then relax and enjoy the second one.

Iphonephan (6550) - McLean/Jackson Hole, Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2013
From a bottle at the On Tap summer beer tasting. Pours a hazy gold with a white head. Feint fruity aroma. Pomegranate comes through in an otherwise ordinary wheat beer.

UncleKorm (1248) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Bottle poured a clear light yellow hue w/ a small white mostly diminishing head and minimal lacing. Big pleasant aromas of plum, apple, pear, bread and grain. Initial flavor is light sweet followed by a moderate bitter of short duration. Tastes are white grapes, lemon, pear, pineapple, and resin. Light body, dry texture, lively carbonation, with an acid feel in the finish.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2013 12 oz bottle shared. Pours pale, golden and clear with a white head and lacing. The aroma is wheat malts and light fruitiness. Light body, clean and crisp. Flavor is breads, grains and wheat malts. Light fruits and hops and kind of dry. Average at best.

At first I thought it would taste too fruity. But the taste of the fruit was not overpowerful.
