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.

350ml bottle. Pours a hazed golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of fruit, barrel, fruit and acidity. Sweet plum and apricot notes. Fleshy and juicy. Flavor is sweet and fruity with medium sour notes. Some funk and wood notes as well. Mild oak notes with creeping acidity towards the finish. Very nice.

12.68 oz bottle- Pours light slightly hazy golden with a thin white head that reduces to a collar. Aroma is lacto, tart, fruity, fairly subdued. Taste is very tart, lacto, wood, plums, and other fruits. Body and carbonation are perfect, creamy and smooth. Very nice

JohnGalt1 (831) - , Idaho, USA - JUL 29, 2015
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.

Travlr (16417) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 21, 2015
Bottle. Hazy to cloudy straw color, white head. Nice aroma of dusty and funky ripe stone fruit. Taste is softly sour summer fruit and sourdough bread. Delicious.

deyholla (8347) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 5, 2015
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 (889) - 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

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks Adam. Cloudy golden. Sour aroma of vinegar, oak, lacto, wine, some fruitiness. Sour flavor, lactic, vinegary, oaky, vinous, fruity. Medium-bodied.
