2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

Not too sweet or too fruity which is okay for me not being huge into fruit beers. Is fairly refreshing.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. A- Subtle pomegranate, wheat, subtle citrus. A- Golden orange color, cloudy liquid, white head. T- Alcohol, subtle wheat, subtle citrus. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, hot slightly tart finish. O- Ick. The label was the only thing I ended up enjoying about this beer. Pomegranate is non existent other than a tinge on the nose. The mouthfeel and taste is just alcohol burn. Lacks any sort of flavor at all. This was the 2015 version from a backlog rating, at least the bottle artwork was cool then.

(Draught) Pours a clear yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of grass, lime, pomegranate, and grain. Flavor of grain, grass, light fruit, and dough.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured into a weizen glass.
3.0 A: Lightly hazed medium orange color. A little over one fingers of frothy white head. Retention is below average and some irregular lacing is left.
3.0 S: The pomegranate is actually pretty strong in this. It overshadows the rest of the beer in the nose. It gives a sourish tanginess to it. Otherwise, some neutral wheat and not much else.
3.0 T: Tastes like pomegranate juice in a not too great wheat beer, which I guess is what it is. Pomegranate, some wheat, and maybe a hint of spice. Underwhelming.
3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and smooth enough.
3.0 D: Itís okay, but too many better options to buy again.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Drank from a twelve ounce bottle. Has aroma of pomegranates. Has beautiful refreshing crisp, fruity, pomegranate taste, not overpowering. Another good brew by FCB!!

Nicely restrained pomegranate but the underlying wheat ale is nothing to write home about. Dinging an extra point for the ridiculous "most unique beer ever brewed" line in the description, considering this wasnít even the most unique beer I sampled that day.

Admittedly, this is probably through little fault of its own, but I didnít like Major Tomís Pomegranate Wheat all that much. It just didnít give me enough. Not enough head. (Wow, that sounds bad. Ah well, Iím going with it.) Not enough pomegranate. Not enough wheat. I enjoyed trying it for the novelty, but thatís about it.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving messy foamy and bubbly lacing.
The smell had a sweet to sour to tart pomegranate and a little bit of honey on the back end as it warms.
The taste was sour and sweet through the fruit and the wheat combination.
A light sweet pomegranate aftertaste leads into a wet finish.
On the palate, this one sat pretty light on the body with the wheat seeming to be lacking a bit.
Overall, I say this was a decent fruit beer. Fort Collins probably could have used a bit more wheat to make a slight heavier body, unless they were trying to make a super sessionable fruit beer. I might have again depending upon what else is served.

The brew was a crisp, light straw color with a slight haze to it. Like most flavored beers, the pomegranate was fairly light, but surprisingly pleasant. Could see myself drinking this on a very hot day, very refreshing.

Hazy golden orange with thin dissipating head but good lacing. Berry and citrus aroma. Grapefruit flavor with the sour/bitter finish of grapefruit as well. Light bodied and watery.
