COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wild Plum Farmhouse Ale is a crisp, slightly tart, and uniquely refreshing beer. An infusion of wild plums, hand-picked at a genuine farmhouse, gives this beer a light tangy fruit flavor.

The perfect summer companion. Farmhouse ales are also known as “saisons” (French for seasonal), a style of summer beers traditionally brewed by Belgian farmers to serve farm workers as part of their wages. Not a bad deal, if you can get it.

Wild Plum is available each summer, June through July.

bytemesis (3152) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Can. Pours hazy butterscotch with a large puffy off white head that has good staying power and laces well. Aroma is fairly standard saison, peppery, yeast, lemon, herbs. Flavor is the same with a fruity, kind of odd, note over the top. Light plus sweet, a touch of lemony zest. Medium body, high carbonation. Not bad, actually.

Strykzone (4931) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Sampled at Kennys. This is a nice saison. I kept looking for plum but found none. Still, it is a nice beer. Just a bit of bret.

smell of musty fruit beer pours a murky off gold color with a very nice foamy head, taste is like the smell a hint of the plum as advertised and also taste of yeast no lingering aftertaste all in all a pretty decent beer from tallgrass

rosenbergh (6827) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 16, 2013
16 oz can. BB 01/11/14. From a trade with deyholla.
Golden colour with a small dense creamy white head. Yeast, mild bitterness, fruits and hops in the aroma. The flavour is Belgian yeast, grassy hops, moderate bitterness and some fruitiness. Tasty. Plums I can’t find but it doesn’t matter. This is good.

madvike (2733) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Can - Clear golden pour with a thin soapy white head. Nose is dry, fruity saison yeast, a hint of spice, and a dry pale malt base. Nice fruitiness. Taste is dry and soapy, with mild spice, dusty yeast, and a touch of fruitiness on the finish. That must be the plum, but it’s real soapy. Medium bodied and well-carbonated. Weird beer.

nuplastikk (4399) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 4, 2013
16oz can. Hazy gold-orange-yelllow unfiltered body. Thin, creamy, steady of-white head. Has a pretty discernable plum character, which melds nicely with the Saison yeast. A little bit of a bite, but then fades into a sweet finish. Has some depth, but maybe a little too much going on, the Saison yeast is not really a clean palate to paint on. An OK, enjoyable beer.
