From BeerAdvocate Magazine Volume II, Issue IV:

Pomegranate is still all the rage even though many people have claimed that several other fruits have more anti-oxidant qualities to it. Regardless, you have to consume a large amount of juice or actually eat the fruit in its natural form to get the true benefits. Word of warning about this beer, it oddly contains sulfites.

Healthy looking head with some clinging lace on the glass, clear golden color. Mild bready wheat aroma with a very distant and vague fruit tone and a faint whiff of sulfite. Graininess from the wheat comes off very bready, there is some astringent husk in the middle that doubles up with the modest hop bitterness and lively crispness. Light twang of fruit, can't really tell that it is pomegranate. Breath of sulfite up front. Finishes semi-dry with lots of hard lingering grain.

Not really sure where this beer was going, but it seemed to fall flat other than an OK American Wheat Ale flavor. As for the fruit and sulfites, the fruit missed the mark, and why are sulfites used? Keep that to wine and cider please.
