Poured into a pint glass.

It's golden and unusually clear. Foamy white head that doesn't last.

Smells like pomegranates and raspberries. This is absurd! Not much else.

It tastes like a dry soda with pomegranate and raspberry. Not much bitterness or malts.

Very thin and highly carbonated.

Overall, no thanks.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: 1/2 inch head, light gold in color, clear, high carbonation

Smell: berry and fruit

Taste: raspberries, blackberries, and a touch of grass. Can’t really taste the pomegranate.

Mouthfeel: high carbonation, light bodied, sweet with a slight bitter spike

Overall: A decent beer that is barely beer enough to not be a wine cooler. Not a fruit drink, but not the first thing I would go for. Of this series, it is probably my least favorite as well.

Just like the ULTRA Dragon Fruit Peach, this does not taste like beer, but rather a fruity soda of some sort. So if this is what you look for in a beer, you might enjoy this. Pomegranate is a unique flavor for a beer which is why I gave this a shot. It has an extremely light color and will not fill you up while it refreshes you on a hot summer afternoon.

Into a pint glass, pale clear yellow color with some fizzy carbonation. Thin fizzy cap quickly fades to nothing. Nose is very sweet, like artificial sweetener. Scent of watermelon Jolly Ranchers and soggy grain. Taste is not as sweet as the nose. Mild berry flavor with a bit of wheaty/bready taste. Mouth is subtly bubbly, very smooth, light, and fizzy. Overall: Flavored malt water. Inoffensive. Sweeter smell than taste. Not very “beer” like at all. This is what I call “chick beer.”

This was “beer” one of three from a 12 pack sampler at a friend’s house. I only drank half of each beer. I can’t imagine anyone who actually likes beer drinking more than that.

Thanks to BeerFMAndy for killing me with this one and offering a quasi-refreshing liquid for in between beers at a recent tasting. "Palate cleanser between IH Kryptonite, Lawsons Double Sunshine, HF Double Citra and Abner before Pegs RARE DOS." Thanks for typing that sentence for me, Michael. Also, a bottom 100 tick. Score. Served in a tulip.

Pours a clear golden color with a fizzy white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Nose brings mild pomegranate plus a load of fake raspberry. Flavor is the same plus same grain. Artificial sweetener and a bit of tannin. Not bad as a soda, pretty bad as a beer, though not undrinkable.

I had this quote in my notes, which I must have said: "Doesn't age (aka 2 hours) on my deck very well." Quite true. It certainly got worse as the open bottle sat around in the sun for awhile, though rest assured, I reviewed this under the optimal conditions of it being at its ideal serving temperature, i.e. just above freezing.

As Mike stated in his review, "Palate cleanser between IH Kryptonite, Lawsons Double Sunshine, HF Double Citra and Abner before Pegs RARE DOS."

Bottle shared by Thorpe, thanks.

Beer is yellow and clear with moderate carbonation but a bad head that manages to halo and leave some lacing on my plastic dixie cup.

Aroma is sweet, sweet, raspberries and whatever other artificial flavorings are in this beer.

Beer is sweet and thin with a grainy / acidic aftertaste. It is basically soda at this point with a beer-y late palate and aftertaste. It is about as far from beer as you can get in aroma and taste and still call it beer. Who is this marketed to? Children?

Palate cleanser between IH Kryptonite, Lawsons Double Sunshine, HF Double Citra and Abner before Pegs RARE DOS.

We decided we needed a liquid to bridge the gap between the hops and stouts of our tasting. This was the answer. I guess it doesn't look horrible. Berlinner Weiss sort of color, hazy pale gold with a bizarrely attractive and retentive white head. Aroma is effed. Childhood nightmares of coughing attacks and Robitussin return. Flavor is less offensive but we're still trafficking in cough syrup with a raspberry aftertase Um, whatevs.

12 ounce bottle, picked up a single of this at Liquor Barn. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a clear straw gold color with about a half inch white head. Pretty much no head retention at all, but there's a decent bit of lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet and fruity, it smells like candied pomegranates and raspberries. There aren't any "beer-like" aromas, but it does have a nice fruity smell. The brew tastes like slightly watered down pomegranates and raspberries. Mouthfeel/body is light and watery, it has moderate carbonation, it's smooth and it's easy enough to drink. It's an OK fruity drink, but it seems more like a malt beverage than a beer. As much as I hate to say it, I liked it a lot more than I thought I was going to.
