A - Very dark, cloudy, reddish amber in color. Yeast easily visible. 3/5

S - Tangerine. Tartness. Bready. 3.25/5

T - Citrusy with a very tart finish. Fruitiness overshadows bread. Definite pomegranate finish. 3.25/5

M - Medium body with a lingering feel and taste. 3.5/5

O - Decent offering but not one that I will buy again. Just not my type of beer. Definitely fruity but pomegranate fruitiness overshadows all other normal aspects of a wheat beer. 3.25/5

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep golden amber color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pomegranate, pear, apple, wheat, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Okay aromas with decent balance of pale malt, fruit, earthy hops, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. A bit too estery in the nose. Taste of lemon, pomegranate, pear, wheat, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of fruity tartness and earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pomegranate, pear, wheat, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt, fruit, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; with a nice bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and slightly bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming present after the finish as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is a solid fruited wheat ale. Good robusntess and balance of pale malt, fruit, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A pleasant and enjoyable offering.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label has a brief description of the beer but no abv %.

Appearance: It has a light golden color with very good clarity and some visible carbonation. After the pour it sets up an average size just off white head. This head slowly settles to very thin film covering of foam with a nice lacey ring at the edge of the glass.

Smell: The aroma has a mild malty and wheat like character with a light hint of floral hops and maybe even just a very slight touch of fruity sweetness.

Taste / Palate: The flavor is a perfect copy of its aroma. This comes by way of a light feeling body with balanced carbonation. As it warms and take the last few sips I get a little more of the fruity pomegranate notes mixing with floral hop notes in the finish.
