Saranac Pomegranate Wheat

12 oz single, many thanks to Kevin for the chance to try this one.
Pour gives a peach colored body with some light, wispy head. Lace is minimal but nevertheless it is present.
Nose offers some light, acidic fruit but little else, even on warming.
Tastes are surprisingly neutral. I was expecting EITHER a blast of fruit, or a blast of wheat and in the end got neither! There is a little, light fruit acidity that the nose promises but it never gets significant and the wheat never manifests itself either.
I guess I wasn’t expecting much and the beer delivers just about that much! Unoffensive but largely devoid of significant depth of flavor or character. Summer drinking? Maybe, but outside of that this beer is not likely to cut it for many people.
