This Belgian style wheat ale has about 25 percent unmalted wheat along with a little bit of crystal and aromatic malts to add depth and body. After fermentation, over 200 pounds of plumm puree was added, giving it a definite but not over-powering fruit flavor. Light bodied and low hop presence makes this the perfect beer for the waning summer days.

20 oz. draft; cloudy orange/amber body with small, tight white head that disappeared quickly but left good lacing. There's no strong aroma, although I picked up some bread and grain and, perhaps a hint of yeast, but very little of the plum purée adjunct. Palate entry on the sweet side, but this a smooth drinking wheat beer. Plum flavors are prominent, but well-balanced with the fruity banana and citrus esters that peak through mid-palate along with an appropriate compliment of energizing CO2. There's also a refreshing and clean finish. Good. Advertised as "Plum Wit." ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at the Shirlington location. Slightly hazy light orange pour with a spotty head. Lighter palate, some yeast, bread, and plum. Not bad.

(Draft, Capitol hill) Orange amber colour with a decent head, autumn fruit aroma with a citrus-plum flavour. An enjoyable brew indeed.

Stine (1747) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Dense and electric orange pour. Nose of coriander and sweet vanilla with a great, jammy dark fruit character. Quiet spiciness diffuses through this, pairing with a bit of sweet malt for a fruitcake tone, fit for something darker. The sugary plum mash dominates the flavor while a dull remnant of wheat sparkles in the background. There’s a touch of tart red apple and cinnamon. Altogether a quite interesting marriage of tastes, its pitted-fruit sweetness playing wistfully with the bright crispness underneath. Palate is similarly weighted a bit more heavily. Definitely a bit too tilted, but interesting. Nice.
