As a committed hop head this beer is way outside my wheelhouse, so take my review with a grain of salt.
Poured from a bottle into my trusy Troeg's standard pint. Minimal head and no lacing - a hazy orange and not an unattractive beer.
Smell is a little tart, you can smell the fruit. Not bad, but doesn't say jump in to me.
I thought the taste was ok, better than I expected. Very fizzy mouthfeel.
Drinkability with this is fine but not something I would seek out, but I'm glad I tried it.

Poured from bottle, a bright clear gold beer, some initial head but it fades quickly leaves little lacing. Smell is vaguely grapefruity, pomegranate, floral, raspberry. Light but with some artificial aspects to it and a pungent fruity character. Taste is light, pomegranate is foremost, syrupy almost, raspberry, a bit sweet but not too muc actually. The wheat base is mild and it is an easy drinking refresher. Light bodied with a mild carbonation, detectable wheat creaminess to it. I'm not crazy about this but don't hate it either, the pomegranate does come across strongly and feel a bit forced and artificial but as a complete package the beer is alright, dry citrus finish, not a ton of traditional flavours but hey this is meant to be pretty off the wall. Not something I'd drink everyday but could be different one to try. Light and mild, smell isn't great but the beer itself could be worse. Some lemon and pomegranate, maybe would make a good salad dressing?
