sulawang (613) - 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 (6667) - 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!

txspartan (966) - Wilrijk, BELGIUM - MAR 4, 2011
A fruit beer made with prunes. Not quite sure Worf would call it a warrior’s drink.

manuchampions (1236) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 16, 2011
Bottle from 16th St. Liquor in West Vancouver. Poured a hazy light brown with a small head. Aroma of sugar and fruit, though I had a hard time identifying it as prunes. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Flavours of sugar, prunes, yeast and bread. Finish is so-so. Decent but not outstanding.

Berry fruits and alcohol in the nose. Dark and slightly rose colour. Quite complex scent. Flavor has a fruity start that becomes rounder and the sweetness dies away just before it becomes too much. Dark malts and plum linger slightly before a clean finish. I normally avoid fruit beers, but this is quite appealing.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 24, 2010
Otown Throwdown III> Shared by KP. Pours a medium clear amber with violet highlights, and a thinning hed. Aroma is prune juice, metallic, salt, plastic phenols, harsh fermented and distilled grapeskins- cognac and grappa, earthy woody and mineral. Flavor is flowery, grassy, overly ripe prunes, fruity all around, slight oxidation, plastic, wood and an astringent and metallic finish- I did not like this.

presario (4609) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 21, 2010
Dark copper-amber with a light lasting foam. Aroma of yeast, plums and cheesecake. Sour fruit flavour with a dustiness to the palate. Like a plum Duchesse without the same joy but with a cheesecake residue in the aftertaste and some bark-like bitterness.

Geiserich (3348) - Linz, AUSTRIA - SEP 6, 2010
Bottle: Ruby rad color. Intensive sourly aroma, notes of vinegarm citrus. Flavor is light sweet, candies, followed by a souris, fruity flavor of immature plums or sour cherries. Dry, hoppy finish. Intensive fruity and sourish beer.

mrhoppy (1285) - Santa Clara, California, USA - AUG 31, 2010
I am sucker for any beer brewed with prunes, plums, raisins, dates or figs. These fruits add such an awesome flavor to beer. They kind of turn a beer style into a Dubbel with a bit more sweetness. If you are like me. go get this beer! Sweet dark fruit aroma this is gonna be good. Great caramel brown color with prune sediment floating throughout the beer. Before I opened the beer I saw a lot of floaters so I vigorously shook up the beer to break up the sediment. Damn this is is a great beer and has a rating lower than it deserves only because a few morons have tried it.

mcberko (6297) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 14, 2010
Bottle sampled at Dunbar Liquor Boutique, pours hazy dark amber. Aroma and flavour of strong plums, with a noticeable but well-incorporated alcohol kick at the end. Well-refined fruit beer.
