Purchased at Breeze Thru in Milwaukee, WI; consumed on a Sunday afternoon while watching basketball. I was skeptical of purchasing this as Iíve never seen a pomegranate alcoholic beverage, but itís actually pretty decent. Aroma kind of odd, definitely a bit fruity but also has the wheat ale yeast and malt in the mix. Appearance clear golden with a thin white head. Taste you can definitely taste a bit of the pomegranate and it has a rather crisp finish. A bit tart on the finish as well, but not super tart. Itís pretty good, I donít know if I would order this again but Iím glad I tried it once.

The brew was a crisp, light straw color with a slight haze to it. Like most flavored beers, the pomegranate was fairly light,but suprisingly pleasant. Mouthfeel was a little on the dry side, but other than that, this beer was very refreshing. I could see it being a great summer beer for Coloradoans, besides Coors Light. LOL!

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

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep golden amber color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pomegranate, pear, apple, wheat, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Okay aromas with decent balance of pale malt, fruit, earthy hops, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. A bit too estery in the nose. Taste of lemon, pomegranate, pear, wheat, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of fruity tartness and earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pomegranate, pear, wheat, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt, fruit, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; with a nice bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and slightly bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming present after the finish as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is a solid fruited wheat ale. Good robusntess and balance of pale malt, fruit, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A pleasant and enjoyable offering.

Clear golden body with a pleasant consistent bubble; thin white head leaves appropriate tracings down the flute... spritzy, sprightly fruity scents--subtly appealing... smooth up front, with an IPA-like trail off... unique indeed--a bit spritzy upon further drinking... I still don’t know what pomegranate tastes like, but this has subdued citricity that settles tartly under the tongue... refreshing and light--a good combination for summer consumption... like a light, less candified, wheatier lambic.

12oz bottle. Pale filtered yellow with a foamy head that fades away. Sweet malty aroma with a touch of pungent fruit. I donít really get pomegranate, just a nice vague fruity pungency. Some light bitter hops really help keep it crisp and drinkable. Ok.

12oz bottle. Pours a lightly hazed golden body with a finger-width, fizzy, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is a floral bouquet of sweet grainy wheat, pomegranate sweet fruits, a light pomegranate tartness, a touch of yeast, and a hint of hop bitterness. Mostly sweet fruits with a somewhat tart wheat. Not bad. Flavor is an enjoyable zesty, sweet wheat up front with some citrus and pomegranate. Smooth wheat in the middle with a noticable sweetness before it finishes with a grassy bitterness that quickly dries and leaves a moderate aftertaste. Medium body, crisp, clean, and smooth. Overall, a nice tasting wheat. Sweet with a nice fruitiness that has just a slight tartness, plenty of balancing wheats, and a decent grassy bitterness. Crisp, balanced, and tasty. Not bad at all.

12oz bottle pours deep clear gold with very brief white head. The aroma is very mild giving up only glimpses of sweetness and berry like dark fruitiness. The taste reminds me of Drakeís Raspberry Wheat with a crisp refreshing beginning followed by a quick pulse of sweet pomegranate heading into dry wheat notes. Midway the wheat, sweet malts and dark fruitiness mingles together creating a fine summertime brew sensation.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2012 Tap at brewery. Pours a light golden yellow appearance with a touch of cloudiness and an off white head. Wheat malty nose with a touch of red fruits. Pomegrante becomes much mote prominent in the flavor on top of a slightly bitter wheat ale body. Slightly bitter and fruity aftertaste.
