3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap pour - body is a pale orange with no head once the glass arrived to the table. Aroma is fruity and sweet...plums are evident, citrusy, somewhat yeasty. Flavor is kind of odd to be honest...generally sweet, there is a bit of tartness in this one to balance things a bit, but the fruit flavor is just a bit overwhelming (given it isnít a great fruit flavor IMO). Palate is light bodied given the ABV (10%, are you kidding me?). Glad I tried it once, and that will probably be where it ends...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Central Market, 10/2/13
Aroma: A quite fruity nose (I definitely get pluot) with some spice, yeast, and earthy notes
Appearance: It pours a mostly clear golden-orange color with a thin white head and medium lace
Flavor: The taste is mid-sweet and a little tart, with some earthiness and spice as well
Palate: The body is light-medium, it clean and fizzy, a little bit sticky, and a quick, tart finish
I actually thought this was a pretty cool beer. Iím not usually the hugest fruit beer fan, but I do enjoy a good pluot every now and again. This isnít a straight fruit beer either. It has a few other things going on that provide a nice balance. Anyway, I am a fan of any beer that feels successful, and this beer feels successful.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear golden with thin head. Fruity, tart aroma. Light fruity flavour with some sourness. Palate is clean and refreshing. Something to give to your wife while you drink the good stuff.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I come from the perspective of really liking fruit beers, but I didnít like this. Big grape, plum aroma, and there is light sourness reminiscent of fresh fruit juice, but the sweetness builds and becomes unrelenting. Too much for me to like. Yellow-ish color. (bottle, 2013 Ale Jail festival, St. Paul, MN)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours sparkling golden with very little head but a good level of carbonation. Aroma is somewhat murky, with yeasty and dark fruit aromas and a touch of soy sauce. Very sweet and fruity flavor with a boozy finish. If youíre not a fan of fruity beers, definitely stay away from this one. I donít mind them, but this one could admittedly use some more depth.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Appearance: clear bright gold with a short, creamy, soapy, white head. Aroma: syrupy, with notes of honey, champagne, heather, mango, and undefinable fruit (presumably the pluots). Taste: sweet fruit, syrup, peach, plum, marmalade. Finish: thick, oily, viscous, and boozy, like an overly sweet dessert white wine. Notes: Not my cup of beer at all. Way too sweet and thick. On draft at Victoriaís Gastro Pub, Columbia, MD.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewery. Pour is clear yellow with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Dirty fruit, biscuit, straw, lightly tart, and floral aroma. Taste is plastic, minerals, phenolic, stale fruit peel, biscuit, and grass with a lightly bitter finish. Light body with high carbonation. Not good.
