Poured from 22oz bomber into a tulip.

Appearance: medium golden hue with a hint of pink and plenty of haze. Head is a frothy finger of foam also tinged with a little pint. A good looking beer!

Smell: tart and piquant; definitely fruity with a good aroma of hibiscus and pomegranate. The wheaty element is present but subtle; it's good, but somehow it doesn't come together entirely for me.

Taste: now we're talking. I was afraid from the aroma that this beer might be a bit over-hyped. Thankfully, I was wrong! Great tartness with a sweet base that holds up, with the pomegranate really coming through and a nice wheaty finish at the end. Shazam!

Mouthfeel: light bodied and nicely fizzy. Refreshing, as a Berliner weissbier ought to be, although nothing crazy to write home about.

Overall: what a drinkable and tasty beer. I love finds like this -- picked up at random at a grocery store in Bend, and I find a delicious treat. Bam!
