Aromat suszonej śliwki, przyjemny, nie chemiczny, nie sztuczny, nie słodki. Smak - w smakowych piwach ciężko wydobyć smaki typowo piwne - więc jest dominacja dobrej, suszonej śliwki, ale niezbyt cierpkiej, delikatnie słodkiej. Piwo średnio wysycone, dosyć pijalne, mimo tego ze jest smakowe to nie zapycha jakoś szczególnie.

Murky red/pink/brown colour with good head and lacing. Sweet plum malt flavour. Bitter finish.

Smells mostly of plums. The colour is dark brown with a visible red hue, clear; head small and unstable. Tastes sweet but not terribly; has a little bitterness, too. Body above light, carbonation low, finish sticky and slightly bitter. Somehow, Fortuna manages to make their fruit beers taste like fruit juice, beer and a dash of vodka, all poured into one glass in such a way that they completely don’t mix; not too awful for the style, though.

Nice aroma of plums. It’s dark color, almost seal, with big but poor quality head. Taste is not very sweet what is good. There are notes of plums, tanned malts, a little bit of chocolate. Unfortunately there is also a note of wet cardboard.

Piwo owocowe, którego największą zaletą jest to, że nie traci piwnego charakteru. Ciemnomiedziany napój wieńczy lekkko brunatna, średnioobfita piana. Przyjemny słodko-kwaśny aromat słodów i śliwek. Średniowyczuwalne ciemne słody. Smak również łączy w sobie przyjemną śliwkowość oraz nuty wynikające z zastosowania palonych słodów - nieco czekolady, odrobinę dymnego posmaku. Całość daje świetną kompozycję, bardzo przypominającą smak śliwek w czekoladzie i trochę mniej suszone śliwki. Kapitalne połączenie piwa i owoców. Idealnie trafiło w mój gust.

Plumish chocolate aroma; caramel color, small head, slight sweetness, slight sourness; abrupt finish, medium body, soft carbonation. Decent malt aroma, not too much juice nor too sweet.

bobroman (405) - Torun, POLAND - JUN 16, 2014
Sweet aroma of plums in chocolate. Small head disappearing to ring. Clear ruby-red body. Sweet taste of plums with some hints of smoked plums. A bit too far away from beer.

Dirty pinkish, medium, dense head, irregular, over slightly veiled, finely carbonated ruby beer. Caramel & cherry sweets, syrup, rainwater, almonds, fruitcake. Bitterish roasted first impression, as burnt waffle syrup. Sweet, but not overly so. balanced by the caramelised flavour. Fruithints, but not really 100% natural. Feels quite carbonated, maybe medium bodied. Pfff... at least it’s not as poor as the mirabelle thing - ’nuff said. Thanks to Aga & dad!

Nose of fruits, plummy, some maltiness. I don’t like how plum juice combines with hops and malts in the taste. Maybe i was drinking it too warm but it was barely drinkable at all, I almost poured it to the sink. Palate ruined it all for me - it was a nightmare.

Aroma of plums with some dark notes. No hoppiness at all, the beer is sweet with some sourness. Good thing is that the taste doesn’t feel synthetic - it really tastes like plums. When you drink this beer with good attitude - expecting something what you can drink in exchange for a juice when hanging out with friends, it really is not that bad.
