Notes/Commercial Description:
Peak Pomegranate Wheat is a refreshing, yet intricate ale brewed with locally grown organic wheat, organic coriander and a touch of organic Pomegranate and Acai juice from our friends at Sambazon. Not as sweet as many fruit beers, the Pomegranate Wheat has a soft, round mouthfeel from the local, un-malted wheat. The spice from the coriander and the subtle sweetness from the Pomegranate and Açai are a perfect complement.

I like the idea, but they should drop the coriander. From bottle so no appearance notes. Smell us classic wheat beer with dark/red fruits but not strongly. Taste is initially nice on fore palate, but then there is a sourness i didn't expect. Could be tartness from the acai berries, but it keeps this from being refreshing. It's not like the intended sourness in a Gose, it's a brighter tartness that doesn't fit. Disappointing.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 5.9%.

Appearance: It has a very light and tall frothy head that sits on top of a hazy medium amber colored body. The head quickly making some lacing only at the top of the glass.

Smell: In the nose I pick up notes of sour candy, white grapes and a hint of raspberry fruity notes over sour dough bread. Very interesting.

Taste / Palate: The taste is light to medium bodied and is a more subtle copy of the aroma. Sour candy and light white grapes mixed with berry like fruitiness within a sour dough wheat maltiness. Notes: It reminds me, in a way, of some lambic beers that I have had.

A: Pours a very lightly hazy pale straw yellow in color with significant amounts of active visible carbonation quickly rising from the bottom of the glass and very faint lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a half finger tall fizzy foamy bright white head that quickly reduces to a large patch of medium thick film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light aromas of slightly tart pomegranate over the top of wheat.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of slightly sour wheat that is followed by moderate flavors of pomegranate that has just a hint of sweetness and a touch of acai (blackberry-like). Hints of herbal hops which fade pretty quickly and contribute almost no bitterness.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp.

O: Very refreshing and easy to drink, good for a hot day. A nice combination of fruit and wheat that makes this one an enjoyable brew.

I normally don't like wheat beers, nor fruity beers. But this was offered to me when I ordered food at an organic pizza restaurant in Tampa, FL. I asked for a sample and it was great! I kept expecting a weird aftertaste, but it was totally delicious.

It was fruity, but not in an over-powering way. And sweet, but didn't have the sugary feeling I get after having some sweet beers (such as Angry Orchard).

Now if only I can find a case of this in North Dakota...

Nice beer... It kicks a little at first but it gets better while you drink it. Nice sweet and sour taste .The sweetness from the acai berries in it leaves a nice after-taste. The smell is really nice and feels good in the mouth too. I would probably have it again.
