If you're a rabid pomegranate fan looking for that intense, tart pomegranate flavor in a beer, you may be disappointed. That said, this is a wonderfully made beer. Starting with a big caramelized malt aroma and a pleasant aged characteristic, the beer is inviting from the gate. You'll also find, as it warms, a winelike quality, mild alcohol tinge, and no hops. The flavor boasts burnt sugar sweetness up front that carries through to the aftertaste, reminiscent of the burnt fruit on the edge of a baked tart. The hops provide an assertive bitterness and a citrusy aftertaste. Origin's full body, mild alcohol warmth, and gentle carbonation harmonize to create an easily enjoyed beer. It finishes dry with a lingering mild bitterness, but offeres little in the way of pomegranate.
