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...

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 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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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).

1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Mild almost non existent aroma, hint of fruit. Taste of rancid fruit, that stays on your palate.
