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.

Ughsmash (7122) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Canned. Poured clear, bright golden with a sticky white head. The aroma picked up sweet plums and clove spicage over bready malt. The flavor found black pepper, cloves, and banana over bready malt and a touch of plum.. back to the spices on the quick, dry finish. Lighter-bodied and dry.. ok feel and flow.. overall not that interesting.

rosenbergh (6665) - 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.

BVery (6082) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Sampled from a can at All Pints North 2013 in Duluth, MN. Hazy yellow pour with a white head. Some tart plum coming through. Slight funk. Decent enough brew for the summer months.

Strykzone (4903) - 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.

Pours a hazy golden with a large foamy white head. Aroma of peppery saison notes, tropical fruits and some plumb notes. Flavor of tropical fruits, plumbs, peppery yeast profile and sweet.

JK (4400) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Gold color. Moderate head. Sweet with some spice, but thin palate. The aroma is right but something off with the flavor that I can’t pit my finger on.

nuplastikk (4322) - 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.

Big can shared by Ed5388. Ed told me that he choose the screen name Ed5388 because that’s the highest number he can count to. Poured with an appearance that seemed infected, all head at first followed by a long slow settle. Body of an orange/gold body under that ridiculous head. Aroma is all Belgian style, lots of yeast, slight fruitiness, bubble gum and chalk. Medium body with average carbonation, chalky, long lasting aftertaste. Flavor of yeast, plums, bubble gum, dry bread. Meh.

wlajwl (3807) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Aroma is spices, grainy malts and plums. The flavor is spices, grainy malts, plums/berries/dark fruit and a slightly sweet/tart finish. A little more grainy than preferable but decent as a whole.
