Draft 10 oz pour at the Horse Brass pub. Rating from notes. At the pub this was listed as a sour but I had my doubts. Pours a cloudy orange color with no head.† Soft fruit, grainy, lotion like aroma.† Minimal sour, mostly in the finish.† Creamy body orange fruit.† Unique sour for sure, but less my type of sour, if thatís even what itís supposed to be. Fun beer to try. †Not bad.†

On tap at White Owl Social Club - Pours hazy orange with a white head. The aroma has plums, thick richness, peach and pale malt. It has a medium / full body with low carbonation. The aroma is very rich and has the umami taste to it. The finish is lightly medicinal. Interesting beer.

bhensonb (12787) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 16, 2015
Bomber from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours very hazy, slightly dirty gold with a slight white head. Aroma of fruit, but? Med body or nearly. Flavor is rather strange, Iím imagining a saki mouthfeel in a way. Plum is quite subdued, and Iím imagining saki heat (and this is 5%). Itís really quite decent, but itís something Iím likely gonna be slow getting into. Plum gets a bit stronger with time.

"Pours a deep chestnut brown. Light bodied, but not in flavor. Tastes and smells of molasses and plums. Unique for sure, and easy drinking. Slightly tart, leathery finish..."

Clear amber color with ivory head. Rice, pit fruit, (plums I suppose), spicy yeast aromas. medium body, average carbonation. Unripe plum, rice cake, spicy flavors--not too bad.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a bright copper color with a medium white head. A fruity and grainy nose. The flavor comes across with rice, light fruit, light sourness, dry. Very interesting. Not getting a massive plum, but good.

Draught. It seemed to me to be a mess. Someone wanted to make a sake, someone wanted to make a plum wine and so they compromised and decided to make neither. Light plum aroma and taste edge to a rice-y body. Almost no finish. Pas op!

Gription79 (2691) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Sampled at the Alaskan Barleywine festival. Rice was the dominating characteristic. Some sweet pilsner malt and a fruity yeast character. Not bad, but it is a little bland.
