Sampled on tap on 6/3/2011 at Bruery Provisions. This fruit beer pours a medium amber orange color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, some yeast and a hint of plums. A medium bodied fruit beer. The malts are fruity and sweet, touch of plums and yeasts. The hops are herbal. Mild carbonation. The plum flavors really show up at the finish. Interesting beer, nice combination of fruit beer and Belgian ale. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Pours a cloudy yellow orange with aroma of plums and other citrus fruits. A very clean tasting beer. The alcohol content is not noticeable at all. A lighter fruit beer that is very unique tasting due to the plums.

Certainly plum tasting but not a riot. More a casual gathering of plums. Good solid dubbel with a slight fruit taste. Very enjoyable.

A little too tart, even for a fruit based beer, this whimsical and bubbly brew tightwalks a rope of what-could-have-beens before crashing into a net of mediocrity. The punchline to this brew is that he packs a walloping 7.8%. Drink a growler of this and itís like being hit by a steel-plated rhinoceros. Too fizzy and sweet, if they would have controlled the riot a little bit better the fruit would have been helpful and not a hindrance.

Thanks to mobz24 for this intriguing bonus beer in a recent trade. 750 ml bottle served into a Belgian tulip glass. Cloudy amber-brown with nice healthy head. Fruity and floral aromas with a bit of alcohol presence. Plums, cherries and prunes accent the beer, but not over the top. Slighty sweet (not tart) with some Belgian yeast charactertics. A little bitterness in the finish. Heavy carbonation, medium to full bodied. Very pleasant beer to have and would certainly have another if it were available. Plums give it a unique flavor, but not overly sweet or fruity. Very smooth and easy to drink - Iím thinking it would pair well with a citrus salad or perhaps pork with baked apples.

Bottle thanks to Mashamaster. Pours a dark orange color with a nice amount of head. Has the smell of yeast and plums. Taste is about the same with the plums being the main flavor. Not to bad.

Pours unclear amber brown, with an explosive head that fades quickly. This is the bubbliest beer Iíve ever seen. Aroma- faint malt, sweet and fruity. Taste-plums, sweet and earthy. Mostly sweetness, a bit of plums and carbonation. Plums come through as it gets warmer. Not bad.

On tap: aroma of plum and yeast; fruit and wheat. Flavor ofplums wheat and yeast. Mellow but spot on.

A: The pour is interesting. A light brown color with a purple tinge to it. A small white head is present, but dissipates somewhat quickly. S: The nose has the usual yeasty and spicy Belgian yeast character with a slight tartness from the plums and a fairly fruity aroma. T: The flavor has just an ever so slight sweet/sourness happening from the fruit. The usual Dubbel malt, candi sugar, and yeast are there as well. M: The beer is medium bodied with a fairly high level of carbonation and a nice dry finish. D: Not necessarily the best beer, but a very interesting one. And, I like the idea, as I think plums are generally one of the fruit flavors present in a Dubbel.

Pours dark with a big plum hue. Lots of fruit in this one. Iíd drink this all night long.
