Pluots are some of our favorite fruits. Created by cross-breeding apricots and plums, there are dozens of varieties with an amazing range of color and flavor. All through the summer, Blossom Bluff Orchards picks each variety at its peak: Dapple Dandy, Honey Punch, Flavor Queen, Black Kat & Dapple Jack were all added to a sour blonde ale and aged in wine barrels to create this funky oak-aged brew.

Bottle shared with friends at poker. Sour like I love a sour. Plums and more acidic sour fruit. That sour finish was perfect

Bottle from a trip to Vegas. Pours orange straw with a white head. Aroma is mild... White grape, plum, oak. Flavor is far more punchy than aroma, bright lemon, white grape, plum skin, oak. Nice funk. Strong acidity in the finish.

375 ml bottle split 2 ways shared by Willrunforbeer, much thanks. Cloudy golden color with a pink hue. The aroma is sweet and sour. This fruit seems to be more powerful then brett yeast and oak. Sweet.

The flavor shows a great balance of the same sweet and sour yet does hit me with the sharp pucker in the glands. Wasn’t expecting that at all after such a mild aroma. Strong oak sharpness with acid reflex. Not sure how much of this I would want to drink in a sitting.

j12601 (9548) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 14, 2016
Bottle. Pours a hazed golden amber with a medium sized white head. Big funk on the nose, fruit and a bit of a fruit, with a mineral note. Medium bodied, slightly acetic with a lot of bright tangy acid, tart pluot flavors, wood and funk. Long acid on the finish, tart and tangy, lingering fruit. Pretty tasty.

Cloudy appearance. Very thin white collar. Hazy grapefruit color. Aroma consist of apricot, plums, and orange zest. 7\10 on sour scale. Lively carbonation. Salty. Slight apricot taste more in the finish. Finish lingers well after the initial drink. Refreshing for sure. There is lime in the taste. I sure do love sours and this one did not disappoint.

A refreshing sour that shocks the taste buds and tickles the throat on the way down. Sour plum and smooth oak finish.

Pours hazy gold into a tulip - looks like a cider. White frothy head recedes to mottle surface. Apricot and plum aromas. Tart and lactic initially turning quickly to sweet apricot before turning dry in the lasting plum and marshmallow finish. Nice.

Bottle from Whole Foods PM. Pours bright golden copper colored with white head. Nose is tart fruit, pluot, tart acidity, hops. Tastes tart, acidic, with notes of pluot, stronger toward the plum, some oak, wine grapes, and a complex finish. I liked the apricot a bit better, but this one also kicks ass.

Merci à Alexandre pour le partage! Une bière qui a l’oeil trahit complètement le style: c’est presque rosé, sans mousse aucune, opaque et plein de vie. Une wild typique et appétissante! Un nez qui transpire le baril ayant contenu de la prune presque trop longtemps. Ce fruit habituellement discret est ici magnifiquement représenté! Je suis tant dans la pelure de prune que dans le noyau du même fruit. Arômes légèrement vineuses et juste assez funky pour ne pas déséquilibrer ce système fragile et délicat. Même sensations en bouche alors que la première gorgée assèche tant mon palais que le bout de ma langue. Léger pétillement qui m’est très agréable en cette journée chaude de printemps. En faisant rouler le liquide dans ma bouche, ce dernier prend une certaine l’ampleur sans pour autant devenir envahissant. Tant le baril que le fruit demeurent respectueux l’un de l’autre et chacun occupe parfaitement son espace. Agréable complexité et buvabilité totale, je reboirai de cette bière volontiers!
