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.

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.

Gachupines (853) - USA - SEP 14, 2013
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. Wife: 3.45

Golden pour with a quickly disappearing white head amd visibke carbonation. Sweet lightly tart aroma more apricot than anything else. Well coated palate. Flavor is a bit cloyingly sweet. Fruit concentrate. Not very good.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 8, 2013
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...

beaz1591 (237) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 3, 2013
Flute. Nothing special to look at. Pours a hazy apple juice color, no head, no lacing, almost no carbonation. Sweet smell of what I’m guessing is the pluot, reminds me of wine. Very sweet, strange tasting beer, I would swear it was wine if I didn’t see the bottle.

BMan1113VR (7833) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 3, 2013
Bottle. Pours with a crystal clear pale yellow hued body with a fizzy and somewhat fast fading white head with decent lace. Interesting and doughy aromas with almond paste, plum and pineapple upside down cake. Tangy, moderately estery, fruity, a touch rummy and boozy. Flavors are sweet and boozy, very fruity. Almost a raisinated/dried fruit flavor. Caramelized sugar. Estery yeast. Fruity and boozy, with nougat and almond paste. Moderate body, somewhat perceived sweetness with a dry finish. Some dark fruits, warming, medium to medium- low carbonation (2.35-2.4ish).

Mild almost non existent aroma, hint of fruit. Taste of rancid fruit, that stays on your palate.

Draft at the brewery. Wow, surprised to see how much some people hate this. Pours a mostly clear gold with a small white head. The pluots are on full display here, with some sweet malts and honey. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, thick, fruity mouthfeel and mellow carbonation. A little tartness, but very mild.
