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.

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...

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Flute. Nothing special to look at. Pours a hazy apple juice color, no head, no lacing, almost no carbonation. Sweet smell of what Iím guessing is the pluot, reminds me of wine. Very sweet, strange tasting beer, I would swear it was wine if I didnít see the bottle.
