On tap at the Columbus Micro Brew fest. A perfect example of barrel aging gone to far. A pomegranate wheat ale barrela ged 6 MONTHS in early times or jack daniel bottles. Not sure what the brewers were thinking but I can't imagine anyone on here would think that 6 months of barrel aging a wheat beer is a good idea. Reality proves it is not. Pours a light honey gold with no carbonation...The aroma is super sweet, totally generic fruit notes, what you would expect from a pomegrante wheat, light oak and alcohol... The taste is horrendous, light oak, wheat, generic acidict fruits. Taste is carbonated grossness, its like drinking a sparking water with fake pomegrante juice.

Don't barrel age wheat beers!!!!

Had this at the Columbus Microbrew Fest in the North Market. I was really psyched to see that Elevator had multiple BA beers available. But unlucky for me, my first instinct was correct - pomegranate does not belong in beer, and I'm not sold on wheat beer being aged in bourbon barrels either...

In short, the beer was a cloudy, unfiltered strawberry/wheat color. Little to no visible carbonation. Smelled almost stale - like extract fruit flavoring, but not sweet or inviting. Reminiscent of Hoppin' Frog Smashin' Berry.

Tasted like cough syrup; bitter and medicinal.

Drinkability was low, we couldn't finish the sample between the two of us.
Interesting idea, but just didn't come together in the end product.
