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.

I really enjoyed this beer, very subtle fruit flavors that are not overpowering, I let it warm a little to bring out the full aroma.

I had this at Global Brew. This had a nice fruity aroma, pour a nice gold color. I thought this was really good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Delicious fruit beer! Tasted on tap at Stone Brewery. A very well rounded beer that's not too sweet-- difficult to find for a fruit beer. Looking forward to finding this in my neck of the woods! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 .

Glowing bright orange copper colors. Smells of sour fruits. Taste is spicy up front fermenting fruit tartness in the finish. palate is light syrupy yet it rinses refreshingly away leaving light tastes of fruit behind.

On tap at little goat. Strong and sweet and a little sticky. Nectary but not overtly fruity. Slight tartness and good creamy malt in the finish. Good beer.

OK, first, I love this series. Very creative collaborations. This is one of the better ones. Let this age in the bottle for almost a year. It was a good decision. High ABV is unnoticeable except for a slight warming in the stomach. Nose is Belgian yeast, plum and candi sugar. A slight farmhouse funkiness is present as well. Pour was a beautiful light golden color. Small fizzy head. Lots of tiny bubbles in a slightly hazy body. Taste is perfect. Lightly sour with candi sweetness. A little grape seed bitterness on the finish. Medium heavy body is mitigated by effervescent mouthfeel. A very nice beer. One I would drink again in a heartbeat.

I really enjoyed this beer. I’m not always into fruity tasting beers but this was an exception. It tastes of plums and apricots at first but when you swallow it’s followed by a warm sensation. I believe this would be a great summer beer.

Sampled on 5/26/2014. This fruit beer pours a slightly cloudy apricot orange color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, apricots and plums, a touch of brett and some tartness. A medium bodied fruit beer. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are earthy and floral. Decent carbonation. The apricot flavors really shine in this beer. It’s a touch tart and a touch dry. Definitely has a Belgian influence, in the yeast and the spiciness. There is also an earthiness that matches well with the apricot flavors. Not too sweet, yet very fruity. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
