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.

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.

Sat down to drink and was excited because I heard a lot about this company but was quickly disappointed.

I just recently visited the brewery in Ft. Collins CO. Loved this place. I taste a lot of plum and tangerines. Its a nice approach to a Belgian style ale or "New Belgium " style to put it correctly .

Horrid experiment gone wrong and they didn’t have the sense to scrap the whole thing. In short it tastes like they chopped and ground up a pluot tree and threw it in the mash boil. Fruit stone juice. Gag!

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle. The aroma is off. Baby diaper and grapes. The flavor is more of the same. Dirty, grape filled, diapers. Footbalmed after a few ounces.
