Pours a hazy golden brownish color. Aromas of mild berries, wheat bread, and a touch of hops. Flavor is a nice balance of soft fruit flavor with malts and a crisp dry finish. I’m not big on fruit beers, but this one has a subdued flavor, not over the top.

suprchunk (2029) - Crestview, Florida, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Cloudy prune juice colored pour. Large white head that is quick to subside and leaves a small amount of lacing. Fruity aroma mixed with a yeast smell. And a bit carbonic. Sweet mouth, with a pefumy aftertaste. Decent beer. Like a Saison with prunes. Or more along the lines of plums.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - AUG 13, 2011
Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours murky amber/brown with fizzy beige head. Aroma is medicinal, some funk, prune, vegetable. Flavor is much the same. Light body, fizzy carb. Overall, didn’t care for it.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2011
Hazy amber colour with a big off- white head. Sweet proune aroma. The taste has a slight vintage touch to it. It is fruity and a tad bit too sweet.

reebtogi (4033) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 30, 2011
750mL corked bottle. Poured ruby brown with pinkish hues when held up to light, smell of dried prunes, caramel malt and light aroma hops, taste of dried prunes, sweet malt, and some alcohol. Too complex for me to accurately describe all that is there.

laiti (5405) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2011
UPDATED: APR 16, 2013 75 cl bottle. Rated on 4.10.2008
Sweetish aroma has plums and cherries. Flavour is a bit sweetish too and it has plums and sweet malt. One weird brew, I’d say. 7+3+6+3+13 = 3.2
75 cl bottle vintage 2008? @ Timo A, BBE 2011?
Aroma is sweetish with aged raisins and toffee. Flavour is sweet with lots of sugar and raisins. Also some toffee. Not very fruity, feels like a typical Belgian strong. Leathery palate. Surprisingly well preserved. 7+3+7+3+14=3.4.

Psytron (1230) - Turku, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2011
Plum beer doesn’t really sound like a delicacy, but this is in fact good! Sweet flavour, works better when not so chilled. Might end up on my Xmas beverage list.

sulawang (591) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 1, 2011
Sour lambic barnyard aromas. Has the depth and bitterness of prune, mixed with some raspberry sourness and sweetness. 1st glass was very smooth. 2nd glass the sourness started to get to me. Ultra-fine carbonation gives it a silky smooth texture and allows for easy sipping.

DuffMan (6436) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 2, 2011
Bottle, shared with Jeff. Hazy deep medium amber with a thick, clingy puffy golden head. Aroma is plummy fruit with spicy nuances and musty yeast. Flavours of tart plum fruit, subtle spices and yeast, and light Rainier cherries. Mouthfeel is incredibly soft and silky. Finish is sweet, but there is a light tartness that keeps things from becoming cloying. More complex than I’ve done it justice, and more enjoyable than I anticipated. If I could get more of this I would!
