COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a white head that dissipates quickly and immediately. Aroma has a bit of dark fruit with a good amount of earthiness, light funk, oak and a bit of tartness. Flavor starts with earthy sweet grains and oak with a growing dark fruit tartness and a hint of acid in the finish.

Mep3222 (842) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JUN 30, 2015
Lactic aroma with some funky in there. Apricot and dark fruit. Slight wheat yeasty aroma. Taste is very nice lactic sour tart. Maybe 6 of 10 sour. Very slight funky finish. Sweet is mild and balance by the sour. Much more on the sour side. Pluot is more on the apricot side, the plum gives it a dark fruit almost tannic sense. Carbonation dies fast and a bit flat but still a very flavorful complex sour. Oaky comes through the finish as well as maybe a dry white wine. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Savage_Night (86) - California, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Pours a hazy orange little to no head. AROMA: sour, funky, sweet fruit, slight citrus, yeast, bread, cereal, plum bitterness and slight spice notes. TASTE: bright sour tone, bitter plum skin, sweet fruit (apricot), yeast, lime/lemon zest, crisp white wine, woody, slight dough and very light alcohol. AFTER TASTE: sour plum, sweet fruit, citrus and white wine with a dry crisp finish and a slight warmth in my stomach. Really nice sour and the pluot is really well pronounce.
