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 hazy gold with a white head. Aroma is fresh sourdough, apricot preserves, light funk, doughy biscuit malt, lemongrass, and a hint of white pepper. Flavor is much more vinous than the aroma let on. Juicy, rounded, and sweet with notes of golden raisin, overripe peach, plum skins, oak, and a touch of vanilla. Overall body is moderate to full, with a balanced sweetness, and a tart, drying finish.

Draft at the Ginger Man NY. Never heard of pluots before but I can imagine what they taste like after drinking this. Highly original beer, aroma of sour plums, mown grass, sour mash. Taste is very sour but with nuances of plum, apricot, lemon. Well made. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Picked up at the COOP a few weeks ago.. Finally getting around to enjoying it while doing some late night lawn watering.. Pours a mostly clear golden with a fizzy short-lived head. Tart lactic and black plum skin.. no real "fruit" essence but the tannic notes that I associate with plum skin are the bigger players.. surprisingly dry and IMO could use a smidge of sweetness to help things tie together better.... Light body with big acidic bite and a burpy carbonic bubble... Tasty, but even the small bottle was too much for me tonight.

Franks (31) - Long Beach, California, USA - JUL 21, 2015
Poured a golden hazy color with absolutely no head. Aromas of fruit, a bit of sweetness, lactic acid and funk. Palate is acidic with a touch of carbonation and more sour than tart. Overall a good sour and would drink again.
