I have to say, it was really enjoyable. Had the nice belgian funk I was looking for, and the fruit didn't overpower. I think the chamomile really added a nice touch to the finish.

Did you leave the elderflower/chamomile in the primary or steep it after the boil? If steeping, how long would you recommend steeping it for?

I added them at flameout and left them in while cooling prior to racking.

Seems like it could have used much more pomegranate juice

I made an imperial POM pale ale. It took a ton of pom juice to get the flavor right. I ended up adding approximately 60oz worth of it. I cooked it down (never reached a boil) to about 800ml though so I didn't mess with the volume too much.
