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. I’m not usually the hugest fruit beer fan, but I do enjoy a good pluot every now and again. This isn’t 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 didn’t 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.

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 you’re not a fan of fruity beers, definitely stay away from this one. I don’t 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 Victoria’s 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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale gold with little to no head, almost looks like a white wine. Aroma is musty fruit, a little like red wine but less intense. Flavor is also reminiscent of a red with less body and a touch less fruitiness. A bit musty as well. Not bad, though a bit sweet and cloying in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Bright clear golden, small sudsy white head, little lacing. Odd fruity/wine like aroma. Seems like both Red and White wine? Interesting fruitiness on the tongue, plums and wine. Smooth, slightly warming. Pluot, apricot married a plum ey? Not sure I get any apricot like aspects. Moderate to full body and mouthfeel. A little overly sweet on the finish, tart and tangy, fruity, plums, and moreso a white wine by this stage. Interesting...
