COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’ve teamed up with Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales to create a special collaborative oak aged ale with plums, brewed to celebrate Plum Market’s 5 year anniversary. The special sour blend is aged on organic Royal Diamond plums; it’s an amber with a hint of roast, malty, sweet, and sour, and the delicate aroma and delicious flavor of more plums than you can shake a stick at.

Luk_ (231) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2014
Bottle thanks to Kyle. Pours a copper-orange body with decent white head. Aroma leans more towards grapes than plums. Definitly lots of wood. Some light bugs and funk. Taste is acidic even for a Jolly Pumpkin beer, red wine and also some caramel sweetness. Carbonation is rather low. Still good but doesn’t not have JP’s usual cohesion and drinkability.

hopdog (9829) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Bottle. Poured a hazy amber color with a small sized off white head. Plums, some citrus, caramel, and wood. This one left me just expecting and hoping for a little more than it delivered.

blipp (6974) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Bottle courtesy of DeyHolla. Shared with Ashley. Pours hazy dull orange with an off white head. Funky, fruity and musty on the nose, with medium tartness, some light toasted malty notes, funky yeast, and light sweetness. Well balanced throughout, and pretty easy to drink. Doesn’t hit the high notes of some other American Sours, but a pleasant and drinkable beer nonetheless.

superspak (3409) - Michigan, USA - DEC 10, 2013
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 3/26/2012. Pours slightly hazy deep orange copper color with a 2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings to the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of tart green apple, plum, pear, lemon zest, hay, straw, oak, clove, pepper, toast, light caramel, vinegar, leather, funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of plum, yeast, oak, and moderate malt notes; with good strength. Taste of tart green apple, plum, pear, lemon zest, hay, straw, oak, clove, pepper, toast, light caramel, vinegar, leather, funk, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy/spicy tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of green apple, plum, pear, lemon zest, toast, hay, straw, oak, clove, pepper, light caramel, vinegar, leather, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of plum, yeast, oak, and moderate malt flavors; with a crisp malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly acidic mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice fruited wild ale. All around good complexity and balance of plum, yeast, oak, and moderate malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
