From Jul 2006
Poured from 12oz bottle a clear light gold with a huge head of foam that actually grew after pouring and almost overflowed. Half way through the session and on, I had about a 1/2" layer but it was still "billowy".
The smell is a very sweet fruity nose. Not ever having tasted a pomegranate, I can't say it smells like that but..it's nice.
The taste is of wheat and what I presume to be pomegranate. It's an interesting flavour for sure; a mix of sweet and bitter that, imho, makes for good drinkability, especially in the hot weather we've been having in Casper.(today it's 94F, yesterday it was ~107!)
Bottom line: An unusual, and good, enough taste to visit again and...the label is really cool looking.

Good tart aroma. You can actually smell the pomegranate. Hazy orange color with a big bright white head. The taste is also slightly tart with some crisp hops and a peppery sweet finish. Kind of a funky aftertaste but good slick palate. FCB gets panned on RB, but this is one of their offerings that I like.

Not too sweet or too fruity which is okay for me not being huge into fruit beers. Is fairly refreshing. HuskerTan (2398) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - NOV 11, 2016
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. bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 18, 2016
(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.

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: It’s okay, but too many better options to buy again.

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle. Has aroma of pomegranates. Has beautiful refreshing crisp, fruity, pomegranate taste, not overpowering. Another good brew by FCB!!
