Tap @ grand tour of Fort Collins breweries and bars with Aaron and Armin, Thanks !! This one at Fort Collins taproom. Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma of wheat, fruit, sweet berries. Taste is wheat, apples, light berries, tart sweet fruity. Medium body, soft carbonation, sweet at frist, but with rather bitter finish. 250212

Sweet in both aroma and taste. Totally filtered, which I don’t appreciate in a wheat beer. Medium head and body. Pomegranate contribution was not noticeable. Fuller body than most 4.8% ABV brews.

Pours hazy blonde with foamy white head. Aroma is a little fruity and some west coast hops. Taste - hoppier than I was expecting...a good floral hop bite followed by some creamy maltiness. Not very fruity, but certainly some tart and sweet berry flavors. Sweetens as it warms a few degrees. Medium body. My wife like this one I did not care for it.

Bottle: The aroma has notes of perfume, grass, flowers, and faint pomegranate. It pours a mostly transparent gold with a touch of haze and a two finger white head that leaves behind some sporadic webbing for lacing. The flavor starts some honey sweetness. The finish has some lightly tart citrus and pomegranate notes mixed with some light grassiness. Light bodied with moderate carbonation and a somewhat thin mouthfeel. Overall, an okay thirst quencher.

Pours light golden with a thin wispy white head. Notes of citrus, bitter orange peel, chewy wheat, pear, and white grape. Thin to medium bodied with lively carbonation.

Slight cloudiness in a honey colored pour. Light head and lacing. Taste (and odor) are definitely different, with wheat and yeast providing the base while the pomegranate contributes sourness. This is a retort to those who think a great brew needs to have a unique twist; it gets high marks for originality, low marks for drinkability.

FishBizkit (234) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2011
Clear yellow color with a fluffy white head and consistent lacing. Bready aroma with a distinctly tart hint of pomegranate. I don’t know if it’s the pomegranate but this is really unlike any wheat beer I’ve had. Very yeasty for the style and the hints of citrus clash greatly with the overly sweet pomegranate flavors. Crisp and refreshing. Not bad.

the pomegranite lent a mild cranberry like flavor. It was not overpowering, and did not dominate the other flavors. It was a novelty, but not somthing I would likley choose for a regular beverage

Poured into a weizen glass. Color is a medium straw. Aroma is mild but has some pomegranate, banana, and clove. Flavor is mildly sweet and fruity. Palate is crisp and light. Overall a very vefreshing beer but the flavors seem a little muted and artificial.

12oz bottle from ABC poured into a shaker. Pours a clear yellow with zero head. Slight aroma of citrus hops. Something else tart in there, possibly the pomegranate. Taste is lightly sweet and medium sour. Starts like a sour grapefruit juice and ends with some nice hop flavor on the back end. Medium bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively carbonation and a long bitter and sour finish. Overall, not bad. I’m glad I have a second bottle to drink, but I probably won’t be buying it again.
