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.

Peak Organic Pomegranate Wheat pours a very slightly hazy straw color with a persistant finger of head. The aroma is nice, it's got a nice wheat character over a fairly generic slightly tart/sweet fruity character. A lot of the tart flavor goes out the window on the tongue, with a lot more sweet berry flavor appearing behind the tart pomegranate that overwhelms the middle. The finish is a nice wheat/berry/pomegranate deal, and the beer's strongest aspect. The mouthfeel is light and moderately carbonated, and the drinkability is solid. A pretty good fruit/wheat deal.

Didnt have the highest hopes for this one (not usually into fruit beer), but was very pleasantly surprised. The color is perfect. Pale, straw, very clear, but just enough to be interesting. Aroma was awesome. A distinct, but faint berry smell comes acroos. Not overwhelming. Just right. Mouthfeel is thin, as it should. The coriander really pops up front, along with the berry, then a faint wheat flavor. This really came together. A nice treat.

12oz bottle from CJ's Potsdam NY for 2$

Appearance – Hazy amber colour with an above average size fizzy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Grains/wheat, berries, lemon

Taste & Mouth - The beer has an average amount of carbonation. I can taste grains/bread mixed with berries and lemon juice/zest and some light spices. There is also a bit of a corn syrup flavour. It ends with a slightly tart aftertaste.

Overall – Pretty decent as far as fruit beers go. I didn't notice the pomegranate at all.. it pretty much just tasted like mixed berries. A summer beer worth trying once.

Poured from a bottle into a berliner-weisse, the beer is a pale, light, yellow-gold coloring that is slightly hazed and visibly carbonated. No head on this brew whatsoever. The nose is candy sweet, with a light roasted quality in the background. Lemon and banana highlights, as well. Flavors are a little more balanced, with a rich, sweet pomegranate highlight that borders on syrupy, overlaying a standard background of roasted wheat. Cloying and unbalanced, this all leads into a semisweet aftertaste. Cloying, cream finish, and the carbonation doesn't quite lighten this up enough. Overly sweet for me, but if you really like quasi-fruity candy, than this might be right up your alley.

Best before 10/2012.

Pours a murky orange with a 1/2 inch fizzy beige head that settles to wisps of foam on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Tiny clumps of sediment float around in the glass after the beer is poured. Smell is of wheat, grain, and some mild fruity aromas. Taste is of wheat and grain up front with a slightly tart fruity flavor on the finish. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is drinkable but it definitely tastes better than it smells.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with an expiration date of June 2012. Sampled on April 22, 2012. The pour is a cloudy pale yellow with a quick fizzy head that disappears quickly. The aroma has a thin malt character followed by loads of fruit. The body is spring-summer light. The taste has a touch of wheat along with the pomegranate with a clean finish. this would be good for hot weather but it is not something I would like to have regularly.
