COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cross pollinate your tastebuds with Belgian imagination and you’ll be sipping this ale while visions of pluots dance in your head. Pluots? A hybrid of apricots and plums that impart a subtle sweetness. Ferment that with a wild Belgian yeast strain and you have a fruity yet spicy nature with a body reminiscent of red wine. Delicious.

Bomber. Poured light-medium golden with a short, dense white head. The aroma picked up sweet apricots and plums (imagine that) plus dry, lightly funky fruity yeast over some meaty stone fruits.. rich vinous notes right on the back of the nose.. very interesting. The flavor found a mess of alcohol-enhanced sweetness at the core (plums, red grapes, honey, and apricot), with dry fruity yeast, heavy peppery alcohol, and tart fruit skins around.. finished sweet, sharp, and hotter than I wanted.. this had a lot of interesting stuff, but it didn’t play too well together. Medium--plus bodied and overly aggressive through the palate (sweetness, boozage, and tartness, all at different times).. subtlety could’ve taken this a long way.

Pours a clear golden with little to no white head. Smells like someone just got done playing a round of golf and then tried to cover it up with some fruity cologne. The flavor is slightly tart and the fruit isn’t as overwhelming as I thought it would be, but damn if it still isn’t really sweet. My lips are losing more and more faith in NB with each one of these offerings they are producing. Just nothing that really works well in this one.

Glowing bright orange copper colors. Smells of sour fruits. Taste is spicy up front fermenting fruit tartness in the finish. palate is light syrupy yet it rinses refreshingly away leaving light tastes of fruit behind.

dresden (779) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - JUL 8, 2013
Clear golden with no head. Aroma of a grape juice, apple juice, some peach. Taste is quite fruity with some dry grape flavours. I dont have a clue what a pluot tastes like, but this is interesting. Not a bad beer, quite refreshing.
