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.

Pours gold with almost zero head. Sweet fruit aroma, but the flavor is apple juice tartness and little carbonation that doesn’t marry well with the malty body

OK, first, I love this series. Very creative collaborations. This is one of the better ones. Let this age in the bottle for almost a year. It was a good decision. High ABV is unnoticeable except for a slight warming in the stomach. Nose is Belgian yeast, plum and candi sugar. A slight farmhouse funkiness is present as well. Pour was a beautiful light golden color. Small fizzy head. Lots of tiny bubbles in a slightly hazy body. Taste is perfect. Lightly sour with candi sweetness. A little grape seed bitterness on the finish. Medium heavy body is mitigated by effervescent mouthfeel. A very nice beer. One I would drink again in a heartbeat.

Man, when these guys miss they REALLY miss. There are some very good LOF beers but this is a stinker. Bottle, best by 5/2014. Pours orange, absolutely dead in the glass. Aroma and taste are cloyingly sweet with a weird bit of tart. No chance two of us will get through half of this bomber. Having trouble thinking of a beer I would enjoy less. Just awful.

pepsican (1438) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - NOV 24, 2013
goldish pour with a white head. Aroma of sugary fruit. Cloyingly sweet. Almost feels unfermented. Chewy. Cracks a smile at being tart, but not really. Not sure if anyone would enjoy this beer.

ABUSEDGOAT (2323) - California, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Clear golden, moderate head, some lace/retention. Aroma is sweet malts with a sweet fruitiness as well. Medium bodied yet stick and sweet, fruity flavor dominates. Reminds me of a much worse offering that The Bruery has.

harrymel (1477) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Enjoy by May 2014 It’s light golden with a etched surface of white soapy foam. Smells of raisins, plums, sweet malts, some sulfur, some farts - kinda smells like a grape "uncrustable" from Smuckers. Flavor is sweet, fruity, some malt, some grain and plenty more fruit flavor, almost has a red pez character. Medium bodied with moderate carb and a good wet finish. I’m not sure how I feel about this, it’s like candy, with a fart with some beer and a light folding of the three.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 6, 2013
Hazy amber with a thin white crown. Aroma is semi-sour with apricot, light funk and fruit. Taste of mild fruit, apricots, some dark fruits and a bit of hay and barnyard. A touch sour.

HonkeyBra (3248) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 25, 2013
On tap at the Tap House in Lemont. Pours a bright orange pour with a nice big white head. Aroma of plums, apricots, belgian yeasty esters, touches of tripel notes. Flavor is quite sweet, focusing on fleshing fruit notes, with some alcohol and bitterness from what I can only assume is pluot skin. Slick bodied, lively carbonation, Lots of sugar and alcohol towards the finish. Yeah, never again.

TheHOFF43 (1725) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Sample at Ale Jail. Pours a pale gold with white head. Very very sweet, fruit is washed away by the sweetness. Really not good. 10% is unnecessary but is the best part of this beer. It isn’t good.

VsXsV (2144) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2013
Sample at Stockholm Beer and Whiskey Festival 2013. Clear golden liquid with small white head. Aroma of apples, fruit, banana, bread, sugar, plums and dried fruit. Taste is light sweet, light bitter and light sour with notes of apples, fruit and banana. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Just OK.
