Part of the Saranac 12 Beers of Summer Variety Pack - $12.98 at Sherlock's in Marietta, Georgia.

Appearance: Appearance: Pours a hazy, orange-gold body topped with a fine ring of white bubbles.

Smell: Wheaty aroma that... HEY! This is their old Pomegranate Wheat -- the label features the same pomegranate-juggling bear.

Taste: Soft wheat malts are rushed by the juicy, sweet-tart pomegranate flavor which holds onto the tongue with a vice-like grip. Tangy finish. Part of me is pomegrateful it's over -- man, deja vu.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Much like the bear on the label, this beer does an decent job at juggling the pomegranates, though maybe this beer would be better had I not drank it in the dead of winter.

Fresh 12 oz 2014 bottle.
Does indeed taste like a wheat beer with pomegranate juice and looks nice in the glass, but disappointing nonetheless. The body is a bit watery; the unappealing aroma (falsely, I believe) hints at some contamination, and flavors components don't play well together.

Pours a cloudy straw. 1/2" pale cream colored head. Retaining lacing in wheat beer glass. Nice light flavor of berry against a light plain type of beer. Refreshing summer brew like a shandy

Pours a hazed orange color with a white-ish head. The aroma is full of bright pomegranate juice, some malt, kinda reminds me of those fruit tinged malt beverages that are mass produced.

In the taste, malty, with pomegranate juice on the finish and a hint of tang and bitterness. Fruity, somewhat malty but not really going anywhere.

Medium bodied, well carbonated brew and a bit sweet. Overall, this is not too great of a beer but if you really like malt and pomegranate it has at least that going on.
