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.

Body courtesy of Ramy at Paul’s Housewarming 2013. Pours a deep orange body with nice thick white head and lacing. Aroma is spice, grapes, funky peach and additional sour fruits. Mouthfeel is medium with nice lightly acidic palate and notes of tangy citrus fruits, grapes, peach and that classic JP funk. Decent wheat and malt character balances out the sour/tart flavor bringing this closer to a saison than a sour ale.

750 ml bottle shared by dudeabide. Pours a hazy light brown amber color with a small, disappearing off white head. The aroma has some light roast, JP funk, plum/dark fruits, tart character, and some wood. The flavor is much of the above; the plums are more noticeable, JP funk, some toasted malts, earthy and some oak. Overall, this was pretty mild and a bit disappointing considering what some people wanted in trade for it originally.

750 ml bottle from secret santa. Thanks. Batch 976. Pours a murky dark amber color with a small white head that soon fizzes away to a fine ring. The aroma is tart with sour dark fruits and some light funk. The taste is complex with sour plums, sour grapes, oak, vanilla and caramel malts. The palate is on the lighter side and the carbonation is lively. Finishes medium in duration with lingering sour fruits. Overall: I kinda liked this, its on the subtle side, but that’s OK with me. A good sipper--Pair with Jarlsberg cheese and cashews

Pour from bottle. Semi cloudy amber pour, with an off white head. Lightly fruity, plums, lemon, mild sourness, some funk, malt, and toasty. Overall mild sour, not very flavorful, but still nice.

(750ml bottle, batch 976, Bottled: 03-16-2012) Pours a cloudy amber-brown body with a small white head. Aroma of plum, chocolate, light roastiness, and vinous. Flavor of plum, lemon, JP signature funkiness, minerals, caramel, and wood leading to a mildly bitter, dry finish.
