He’Brew Origin Pomegranate Ale – Shmaltz Brewing

8.0% ABV
Purchased at BevMo ($5.39/22 oz. bottle) and poured into mason jars.

His Notes:

This “Imperial Amber brewed with luscious pomegranate juice” pours a marmalade orange with a bubbly, light tan head and lots of silt-like bubbles floating to the top. Its unfocused nose is a blend of various fruit juices – pomegranate aromas are present, but so are grapes, pears, melons, and citrus. He’Brew Origin is initially very bitter on the palette, more raw grapefruit than pomegranate, with some malt and fermented grape flavors playing back-up  The taste grows more citrus-y and mellow on subsequent swallows, with some grass and caramelized apricot notes entering on the finish. Although Origin was initially pretty unpleasant, it ended with some complex, refreshing flavors and an un-sticky finish.
