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.

Fritz123 (1114) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle from a trade. Popped at the Dolphins tailgate party with Jeff. Small snifters. Pours a cloudy orange copper with small to no head. Aroma is fruity with apricots, mango, orange, and pears. The taste was a tart backbone of the fruits in the aroma with a slight yeasty funkiness. Light body, spry finish. Moderate carbonation. Great stuff! The barel aging mellows it nicely.
