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.

12 oz. bottle. Clear golden color with small amount of white head with no retention. Slight scent of pomegranate and notes of wheat. Very light pomegranate flavor, some wheat notes. Light bodied, kind of watery, moderate carbonation.

Too sweet for me. Like a bad wheat beer with pomegranate syrup. Not my style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught at the restaurant Gravity 1020 next to the brewery on October 9, 2012
Clear honey color, white head. Hoppy taste, some citrus. Fruity aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness. Citrus scent.

A clear, light gold beer with a small white head. The aroma is yeast, wheat, a little citrus. The flavor is sweet grain and a fruity finish. Pretty weak all around.

dmac (6459) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 30, 2012
12 oz bottle from Spirits Rt 166. Poured a lighter shade of copper with a smaller tight foamy brighter white head. Aroma has this weird artificial honey aroma and some grains. Palate is medium with an odd sweetness that is almost cloying. Initial flavor is a big burst of sweetness lots of honey and some agave syrup followed by dry grains. This one is pretty blah.

Alfonzo (15) - Alabama, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Pours light gold and slightly hazy. Very subtle tartness from the pom, very cranberry esque.

rmussman (1701) - California, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Sampled in a mix pack has a hearty aroma and a sweet aftertaste. The color is light brown with a mild head. The flavor is sweet and malted.

drjay44 (3830) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2012
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thin short lived white head with some lacing, over a clear gold (SRM 5) body....nose is light cereal, with hints of fruit (pomegranates).....taste is light cereal finishing with a hint of fruit sweetness then finishing tart...mouth feel light, carbonation high. The fruit was done with a very light hand. The result is a wheat beer with only the barest hints of fruit. It is light and refreshing, but it is very minimally a fruit beer. BJCP6/3/11/4/5
