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.

Great sour. Blonde like their others but slightly fuller body, which is great and more depth to the aroma and flavor, both funk and fruit heavier. Definitely like this more than I thought. Acidic, fruity sourness. Yum."

Dark burnt orange. Hazy. Nose is light with hints of peach skin and lemonade. The taste is very distinctive. I’ve never had pluot before. The base beer again is crazy sour. So intense and just Murder on my enamel and peace of mind. Juicy honey and lime finish

rbrazell (1620) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle shared by Tim and Rachel. Cloudy golden pour with a bubbly white head. Suprisingly fruity aroma of apricot, peach, plums, oak, and yeast funkiness. Flavor promotes the same qualities, tart fruit, funkiness, oak, Chardonnay characteristics with some lactic acid. Very tasty reeb.

Hair6a11 (1348) - Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2014
Bottle; Pour is murky light gold, with a one fingered, fine bubbled white head into this glass. It retains spectacularly, with sticky lacing presence. The nose is candied apple, gingerbread, and dominant pluots - It’s fucking delicious. The flavor profile is mild sweet tart, moving to light citrus, with a touch of funky, moving to apple presence, pluot dominance, and light earthy oak here. It’s a touch subdued at the finish line, with a long, dry finish here. This is a nice experience, and my first attempt at an almanac sour. Hurrah.

hopdog (8848) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2014
375ml bottle. Poured a hazy golden color with an averaged sized head. Dark fruits, citrus, wood, and vinous qualities. Nice tart and funky finish. I really liked this one.

OldMrCrow (1808) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle from Bob’s.

Another Almanac sour. That chalky, sour, almanac funk dominates the nose, with hints of oak and green apricot. Green apricot comes on stronger in the flavor, funk backgrounded, lemon juice as usual. Not as good as the bizarre Stillwater Debauched that I just had, but perfectly well put together and enjoyable to drink.

375 ml. bottle. Pours a somewhat cloudy pale gold with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, funk, and stone fruit. Taste is citrus, stone fruit, funk, and oak. Very nice Sour Ale.
