look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Got a bottle of this from a friend.

A: Pours a clear, deep golden body with a thick, white head with very nice retention and lacing until the finish.

S: A sweet, malty smell with some dry, slightly bitter pomegranate notes. There was also a slight bitterness smell that reminded me of the faint smell of Cascade hops.

T: A bitter, pretty dry taste with a Brett yeast aftertaste. There was some slight earthiness noted in the aftertaste as well as some alcohol notes noted in the undertones of the beer and the aftertaste as well.

M: A pretty smooth and crisp mouthfeel that was nice for the style.

D: A decent mouthfeel and taste combination, but the alcohol was a little too present. A pretty good example of the style. However, the alcohol, despite being low, was fairly present in the taste and aftertaste and I felt that took away a little bit from the experience of drinking this one as well as your ability to drink the style during the warmer days.

3.39/5  rDev +6.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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?
