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.

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.

Pours a hazy golden brownish color. Aromas of mild fruits, wheat bread, and a touch of hops. Flavor is a nice balance of soft fruit flavor with malts and a crisp dry finish.

tricksta_p (3328) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 6, 2015
On tap at Craft & Draft, Amsterdam. Aroma of rotten peachy fruits, sweet fruits, plum, alcohol. Flavour is cloying sweetness, boozy. Though the aroma has some redeeming features, this beer is just a mess. Totally out of balance and far too sweet and alcoholic. Unpleasant.
