355ml bottle. Shaker glass. Enjoyed on agt´11. Bright golden color, chill haze in appearance. Brief, white, head leaves some spotty lacing on sides. Yeasty – fresh bread- & fruity aromas. Moderate fruit sweetness followed by dry bitterness with grape zest notes. Bread crust hues in the middle, slightly harsh grainy sensation. Medium body, medium carbonation. Quite bland & flat. Not as refreshing as expected from a Pale Wheat.

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.

RThe lightly hazed orange tinged amber beer pours out into a nonic pint glass with a 1" white head that recede to a thin ring and leaves little or no lacing behind.

The aromas include some fruity character a bit of malt with no real hops noticable.

The flavors include the fruit, some nice lightly malty sweetness with no real bitterness showing.

The mouth feel is on the light side of medium bodied and a bit crisp with the moderate carbonation.

A drinkable beer but not one I expect to be repeating. I could drink more but tend to prefer a dry, lightly bitter ending.

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.
