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

Appearance - Pours a very hazy, pale yellow color with a half inch thick frothy head that dissipates instantly. Has pretty nice lacing.

Smell - Pale malts, sweet and tarty, and light aroma of pomegranate.

Taste - The pomegranate isn't as strong in the flavor, but it's very sweet/tarty. Pale malts, wheat, and a subtle spiciness at the end. Has minimal bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall - It doesn't taste like I expected but it's pretty good.

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

Pours a cloudy, golden/copper color. 7/4 inch head of a white color. Great retention and slight lacing. Smells of wheat, sweet malt, slight pale malt, and yeast. Fits the style of an American Pale Wheat Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of pale malt, yeast, wheat, slight grain, slight sweet malt, and a hint of citrus. Overall, a good wheat beer, but the citrus is almost non-existent.
