High Water Brewing Pom Cherry Bomb Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is High Water Brewing Pom Cherry Bomb Ale. I’m a big fan of High Water Brewing’s offerings so I thought I’d venture out into this one.
From the High Water Brewing website:” Pom Cherry Bomb is Belgian inspired specialty ale. Brewed as a golden ale with a blend of fresh pomegranate and Montmorency cherry juice. Fermented with a classic Belgian Abbey yeast. A tart refreshing seasonal ale.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a hazy orange/red color with a tiny white head and solid lacing.
Aroma: Pomegranate, cherry, Belgian yeast, fruity esters, sweet malt and spice.
Taste: Tart and sweet with pomegranate and cherry flavors followed by sweet malts and Belgian yeast elements. Very nice, not too sweet.
Overall: Very enjoyable, High Water Brewing’s Pom Cherry Bomb Ale is well balanced and well made. It is hard to tell that this is 7% ABV, but it is quite drinkable nonetheless.
