Pours a cloudy golden with a reddish tint. Topped by a thick, bright white head that fades to a film leaving patchy lace. The aroma is grainy with a hint of grassiness and a light pomegranate note that becomes stronger and a bit syrupy on swirling.

Sweet pomegranate upfront and throughout. The finish is grainy with not a lot of bitterness. Too sweet overall. Smooth, low carbonation and light-bodied.

Too sweet, but the pomegranate flavor is nice.
