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?

Picked up as part of a mixed six as a what the hell because I tend to like wheat beers, even the fruit ones. Not much on appearance, kinda thin and not much head. Not much to speak about with smell. Taste was also disappointing. Overall not a real strong beer, decent but nothing special. Probably will not buy again. Of course, may be overly rough because I drank it right after a Weihenstephaner Heffeweisbier, so tough act to follow.
