Growler. Pours a golden hue with a thin white ring barely there. Aroma of fresh yeast, rich ripe fruits, plums and apricots for sure. Taste is thick and syrupy fruits dominate followed by a load of alcohol. Interesting. Needs some carbonation to maybe lighten it up. Distinct wine like finish. Dry and fruity. As it warms it becomes more wine like.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Honey pour, struggles to form a white fizzy head. The smell is tangy and fruity with a slight funk, yogurty, slight herbal/floral hops, very perfumey. Flavor is tangy, quite a bit of tangy medicinal qualities, metallic, children’s multivitamin-esque. Just not hitting the mark for me. Too medicine-like.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
this ale had a clear yellow-gold pour with just a hint of orange and gave a one finger white head that receded to a thin cover and sticky ring, the glass had a center stream of medium flowing bubbles, and there were spots and fingers of lacing on the sides of the glass, there was no sediment in the bottle,
there were aromas of peach, pear and apple fruit, white grape, faint fruit esters in the background and fruit sweetness,
it had flavors of peach and pear with other fruit, very little malt, the finish had a bit of alcohol drying on the palate,
the mouth feel was less than medium with a bit of a creamy feel on the tongue, and it had soft to average carbonation,
the fruit was out front in the aroma and flavor of this beer, it was pretty much a one dimensional drink, all fruit, it was alright but not interesting or a drink that stands out for any particular reason.

Definitely a hit for your favorite fruity Belgian.
An unassuming golden pour with minimal and quickly receding head give way to a full bodied Belgian with only subtle hints of that hybrid fruit, yielding to subtly spicy Belgian character.
Best fruity beer I've had to date.

Bottle. Like most people, I assume, I’ve never heard of pluots. This pours a nice, seductive golden hue, with just a fizzle of carbonation. It drinks with an interesting, fruity, alcoholic warmth, I’d call it peach or apricot, I think. Definitey a "slippery" beer ... not a big, fizzy beer. Nice on a hot afternoon. (#5046, 6/2/2013)

Pours orange gold with no head. Interesting to use pluot but not picking up the flavor of much else. A little pineapple. No noticeable hop flavor. Mouthfeel hits you right in your sinuses.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
@ Hops and Pie. Clear darker golden with a dissipating white head. Nose has some juicy fruitiness like a cross between pineapple and plum, with a sweet sugary pale grain background. Big body and flavor with honey sweetness and juicy umami laced fruit. Like peach but not...maybe like mango, or something. Caramalt background adding to the sweetness, but has a nice dry fruity finish with a sugary aftertaste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a clear golden color with an initial moderate white head that fades quickly. Aroma is slightly fruity and a Belgian yeast funkiness. Taste is a little yeasty up front but fades with into pluot fruitiness with a twinge of sourness. Mouthfeel is a little sharp. An interesting try but I don’t think I would buy it again.
