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.

The aroma does have a fruity thing going on and I guess there is pomegranate and acai but hard to pick out. It's mostly just malt and a bit of diacetyl. The appearance is deep gold with an amber hue. The head is rather small. The flavor is like the aroma with a bitter finish. The palate is a bit thin but not too far off for the style. The finish is sweet and fruity. Overall I am not that crazy about it because of the bitterness but the main fruit flavors are nice in the finish but they fade fast.

Added a new entry to add the ABV and because it was more of a wheat than a fruit beer. Had on-cask at Pizzeria Paradiso in Washington DC.

Pours a hazy straw/golden color with very subtle purple highlights. Head is one-finger of white foam that recedes slowly into a patchy layer on top leaving decent lacing.

Smells of pale malts with light hints of raw hops. There are also hints of berries that come through every now and then.

Tastes similar to how it smells. Pale malts mostly, and the fruit flavors don't come through as much as the sweetness from them does.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a very nice thickness for the style with soft carbonation.

Drinkability is good. I had no problem finishing one but I wouldn't order another one.

Overall this is the first wheat beer I've had on cask and it didn't disappoint. I'd be interested to see how the bottle version stacks up.
