This was definitely unique. Tart flavors mixed with an aroma of fresh toasted bread. Slightly yeasty and zesty, with some great fruit flavors from the namesake.

Had this beer on 5/21/2005. Interesting note, this beer comes with two totally different labels. One with a red rocket blasting off and the other is a yellow bi-plain. Both labels came in the same six pack. Color is a hazy pale gold with good carbonation and nice head. Aroma is a faint wheat scent with light tones of hops. Taste is crisp, tart and bitter. Starts with a light body that goes down crisp with a clean feel. The finish comes on with a faintly sweet malted wheat flavor that has a light fruit flavor coming though it. It then turns to a tartness and ends with a mild hop bitterness. its a nice warm summer day kind of beer.

12 oz bottle. Poured golden in color with a long lasting white foamy head. Great lacing left on the glass. Aroma of tart fruit and grass. Taste comes in tart with fruit, grape sweetness, and grass. I suppose there is pomegranates in there, but I’m not too keen to know that flavor well. This one at first sip reminds me of a Berliner Weise style. Not bad.

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 don’t really get pomegranate, just a nice vague fruity pungency. Some light bitter hops really help keep it crisp and drinkable. Ok.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - NOV 17, 2009
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 Drake’s 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.

Pours a cloudy golden color. Smell is of, pomegranate and wheat. Taste has a wheat tang to it, pomegranate is present but not over powering. Overall a pretty good beer.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label has a brief description of the beer but no abv %. Appearance: It has a light golden color with very good clarity and some visible carbonation. After the pour it sets up an average size just off white head. This head slowly settles to very thin film covering of foam with a nice lacey ring at the edge of the glass. Smell: The aroma has a mild malty and wheat like character with a light hint of floral hops and maybe even just a very slight touch of fruity sweetness. Taste / Palate: The flavor is a perfect copy of its aroma. This comes by way of a light feeling body with balanced carbonation. As it warms and take the last few sips I get a little more of the fruity pomegranate notes mixing with floral hop notes in the finish.
