Peak Pomegranate was a close-out for me @ Union Jack’s in G-side. Three bucks for the pint got me pale fruity Wheat Ale with a soft finish. I don’t usually drink fruit beers Thanksgiving weekend, but happy to try this one. 17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 3, 2009
On draft at Binny’s Southloop. Pours a clear soda-fizzy slightly purple golden with a thin fizzy head. Aroma is fairly crisp with seemingly sweet fruit syrup. Flavor follows, crisp, cereal, pomegranate is midway between syrupy fake and real, not bad. hopscotch (11113) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2009
Bottle… Clear golden ale with orange highlights and a small, fizzy, white head. Nice retention. The aroma provides buttery sweetness and lightly toasted grains, but is a touch medicinal. Medium-bodied with a fatty mouthfeel and lively carbonation. The flavor is sweet, buttery and lightly fruity with modest, metallic bitterness. Sweet, buttery finish. rocbyter (2124) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - SEP 30, 2009
Sweet light fruit aroma. Clear golden color with a medium white head. Sweet beginning with paper tangy bitter finish. areyouinning (72) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 9, 2009
Clear golden ale with generous carbonation, medium white head and slow lacing. Slightly sweet, fruity aroma. Mild tasting wheat beer, with slight berry note.

12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Hop City in Atlanta, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a clear, orange-golden body with a well-sized, lasting layer of white foam.
Smell: Sweetish, butterscotch-scented malts with a fruity aroma sweeping in and smelling strongly of pomegranate (the IT fruit of yesterday) and acai berries (the IT fruit of today) with a minute hint of coriander.
Taste: Malted wheat and barley with a sweet touch of butterscotch candy. Then in comes the fruity additions of lightly tart pomegranate and Oprah-approved acai berries, the latter of which has tasted vaguely reminiscent of blackberries on the (very) few times I’ve tried them. Touch of leafy coriander. Light, clean hop bitterness that along with the added coriander helps to provide some balance. Finishes semi-dry and lightly crisp with a lingering fruitiness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: It’s fruity, it’s wheaty, it’s sweetish and fine for the one bottle. I’m happy to be getting an extra dose of antioxidants to cancel out all those cell-damaging free radicals while also pickling my liver. Maverick34 (3239) - New York, USA - AUG 30, 2009
Draft. Poured gold. Strong fruity aromas and almost sickly sweet and syrupy. Not so great. roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2009
Pours slight hazy pale yellow with lots of fizzy white head. Aroma was tart lemon and other citrus. Flavor was very very tart and acidic followed by a slight sweetness in the finish. Beer a bit watery and out of balance. Could use a bit more in the way of body and sweet to balance out the huge tart beginning that really catches you off guard.

Bottle. Golden with a thin white lace. Nose of pomegranate juice, wheat, butterscotch. Flavor is slightly bitter, some sweetness from the fruit, mounds of butter. Worse than expected. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 4, 2009
Bottle from Whole Foods. Gold pour, big white head. Very carbonated. A big dose of floral hops hits followed by a good amount of wheat and some fruit and berries. Flavor is much more bitter than I expected. The hops, wheat and pomegranate make for an interesting combo. But I don’t want to drink one again.
