Intro: A 330ml bottle with a notched best before date of March 2020. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A hazy golden straw yellow colour with a huge four finger white head that had excellent retention but left only sparse lacing.
Aroma: Dusty, wheat, citrusy lemon zest, slight sweet malt, caramel and apple juice.
Taste: Light flavours, wheat, sweet malt, lemon zest, citrus peel and hints of pomegranate.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Considering pomegranate was in the name, it’s a pity that it wasn’t more prominent. I also wasn’t too fond of the ‘dustiness’ in the aroma. Just didn’t really work out for me.
