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.

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

This beer here, this beer I had @ the Grand Tasting... Compliments of some generous soul, ffs!
Pours a deep golden with a small head and some lacing on the glass.

The aroma is funky and tart with some really inviting fruitiness of plum and berries. It’s at once rich and deeply funky with some lemon rind.

The flavor is a touch corky & pleasantly dry. It’s not overly sour but certainly tart and certainly fruity. It’s got some nice oak and some champagne like elements.

Really a special beer that I thought I’d never get a chance to try.

Tasted at RBSG grand tasting. 750ml bottle. Totally cloudy darker amber color. Thin ring of off-white head. Dots of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of creamy, lghter carbonation. Light dry finish. Light tart taste. Moderate sweet taste. Good oaky lemony taste. Light spice. Nice smooth yeasty (my pour was from the end of the bottle) but great mildly sour saison. Nice and hearty, relatively.

Bottle at home with Scott. Pour is clear orange with a big white head and good lacing. Plummy, raisins, tangy, oaky, orangey, spicy, toffee, grassy, and light urine in the aroma. Taste is tart oranges, raisins, lemon notes, light lactic, wood notes, tangy, apples, and pears with a lightly tart finish. Slick mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Definitely cool to try and has held up very well.
