Cross pollinate your tastebuds with Belgian imagination and youíll 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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Like most people, I assume, Iíve 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, Iíd 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.

@ 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.

zmanzorro (128) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 30, 2013
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 donít think I would buy it again.

Draft. Bright golden color, white edge head. Aroma is a bit odd, but then again I donít know what a pluot is, and I donít feel like googling it. I do know what a kulatt (?sp) is, because my mother used to wear them in the í60s, so there you go. The taste is not unpleasant, but sweet, strupy, and similarly unrecognizable. Easily the best pluot beer Iíve ever had.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark golden color with a moderate white head. Nose is slightly fruity, but more skunk in there. Taste is slightly sweet and I can definitely get the plum elements. Not a huge fan of this.

flylikeabanana (179) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Bottle pours a golden-orange with a full white head. Aromas of peach and apricot. Taste is very fruity and sweet up front, pretty incredible how well the alcohol is masked. A bit of bitterness at the finish, but overcome well by the plum and Belgian yeast.

Brouwerij (957) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear golden copper with coarse white head. Settles relatively quickly with no lacing. Aroma is fruity, peaches, apricots, smells sweet. Flavor is peachy and sweet up front. fades into apricot, mildly tart and spicy finish, subtle alcohol. Very juicy throughout, alcohol is well hidden. Moderate carbonation, medium-light body, mildly crisp texture, and slightly warming finish. Not my favorite but for a fruit beer this is quite good.

Westmeister was able to make it back ITP, thus, we had to bit up the Brick Store. I celebrate this fact by ordering this very average beer. Poured the color of a golden delicious apple with a white head. Alcohol and fruit dominate the nose and the flavoring. Very slick with little carbonation. Overall this beer was just a mess of fruit and alcohol. Too many good beers in this world to waste your time on this brew. Draft - Brick Store Pub - Decatur, GA
