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.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2008 Bottle. Didn’t bother decanting, but from what I understand, the appearance is not amazing. Neither is the beer inside the bottle. Nose is clean, smells like beer. Flavor is not very distinguishable from any other beer. There might be a breath of wheat bite to this, but I can’t detect a single iota of pomegranate, be it flavor, tartness, or aroma. Not offensive, but dissapointing. No character whatsoever.

This is different, but not terribly exciting. It basically tastes like a hopped up American wheat beer with a faint, very faint pomegranate flavoring. Perhaps the lack of fruit is not such a bad thing, but even the driest funkiest fruit lambics maintain some a distinct flavor of the fruit, with this one I am not sure I would even notice the pomegranate if it were not labeled on the bottle. In other news, this has a nice little head with some good lace, and is a bit watery in texture.

Will the travesty never end? Fruit wheat beers.......ugh. If you’ve had one, you’ve had them all. Overly sweet, unbalanced, more like drinking Smirnoff Ice, or a wine cooler, instead of a beer.

The aroma is fruity with yeast, malt, and paper. The appearance is golden with a small head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. This is not one of my favorites and it has a soapy aftertaste.

Crushed at the Pumphouse Spring Beer Festival. Pretty bland. Some fruit and lemon on the nose. Not much to offer in flavor, but minimal poop makes it at least smooth.

Bright yellow pour with a fizzy white head, aroma hints at wheat and straw, taste is moderately dry with no signs of ’pomegranate’, finishes lightly tart and very dry, nothing complex about this beer and it’s a bit watery.

This poured a bright yellow color with a white head. Aroma was tart pomegranate and yeast. Flavor was sweet artificial fruit flavor and slightly spicey from the wheat character.

Pours a golden yellow color with a white head. Aroma is some malt, a hint of wheat, and a hint of fruit. Flavor is caramel, some wheat, and a slight hint of tart pomegranate.

Yellowish pour. Fluffy white head. Aroma is tart and weird. I guess I get some wheat but also a bit of plastic. Flavor is tart and odd...just not good. Compontents fight each other..no harmony. Skip it.
