10oz pour at Max’s. Aroma is perfume, plum, acidity. Flavor is the back of the throat tingle, dry, then an explosion of fruit esters, specifically plum, and a complex drying finish. Amazing.

Draft at CK. Pretty, light ruby color with a small head. Nose and flavor bring beautiful tart unripe plum, hints of red wine, salinity, earthy tang. Well balanced and dry on the mouthfeel. Good stuff.

Pours somewhere between amber and purple with a very small off white head that quickly turns to a ring around the glass. Plums are very apparent. There is also oak, vanilla, grapes, citrus and overall tartness. It has a medium body that’s very crisp with some bite and minor amount of carbonation. Starts with a sour kick that has a lemony aspect, less plum than aroma, pepper, grapes, woodiness and some light vanilla. The finish has lingering tartness and oak with some milk caramel that’s swirled in. Quite good.

Some sourness, with a doughy backbone. I don’t get the hype, as there are much more accomplished beers in this style.
