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.

Do not let the "plum" fool you. This is a great bitter ale. Not too sweet and great for a clean crisp beer. Keep it up Tallgrass.

16oz Can - Aroma starts out as typical Saison, then surprises you with sweet, cherry notes. Golden color and refreshing taste makes this a great Saison. The plum notes come out on your tongue and are quite nice! I was very please with this brew.

16 oz can purchased at HyVee in Cedar Rapids, Missouri. The pour is a pale hazy yellow with a billowy 3 inch inch rocky head. The aroma is esetry with a touch of straw. The plum is not real clear. (But plum does not have a strong distinct odor to start with.) Initial flavor is a fruity tartness, accentuated by the high carbonation. Taste settles into a mildly sweet and dry finish. Clean. Lively mouthfeel. Light body. A terrific beer.

interesting and light. Great spicy barnyard yeast character. Dryness kept me drinking more.

portableparty (1909) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 3, 2013
16 oz. can. Pours hazy orange with a large foamy soapy off white head that slowly fades and shows nice lacing. Aroma has nice farmhouse funk some plum scents and bready yeast. Taste has nice spice and bitterness up front with some fruity plum and funk along with bready yeast and faint tartness. Palate is medium fizzy and drying. I am digging this! This is right up my alley, subtle and shows all qualities of a Saison that I enjoy!

nuplastikk (4347) - 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.

thegreenrooster (3194) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Pour is a hazy yellow with a huge fluffy white head. Aroma is a nice yeasty ester with a little fruitiness in there. Flavor is decent yeasty creaminess with a hay like dry malt with fruit and funk brining things up. Did not pinpoint any plum but it has plenty of sweet fruitiness. Big on Belgian yeastiness with a decent amount of fruit and spice. My first saison in a can.

WillRunForBeer (644) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Can from UncleMike in a locals trade, thanks! Pours pale yellow gold with a huge lacy white head that never dies. Nose is juicy fruit bubble gum, hay, lemon. Flavor is slightly sour wheat, earthy bitterness, plum skin.

justsayswell (53) - Missouri, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Pours a cloudy gold with a fizzy head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is wet hay, faint melon, citrus rind, plum skin. I normally don’t like farmhouse ales, but the plum plays really well with the farmhouse yeast and the esters are fairly muted. A little dough, tart yeast notes that turn sour with a hint of hops, plum, wood. Not overly sweet or vomit-inducing, and definitely interesting. Not very sessionable, but worth buying a 4 pack to share.

EtTuCthulhu (1032) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - AUG 25, 2013
This beer comes out of the can with a large white head and a cloudy golden color, and the aroma has a mixture of general sour fruit with a hint of plum as well as some dough yeast. The taste is quite sour and mildly sweet, but its balanced between the two. The palate rounds the beer our nicely due to the medium body, lively carbonation, slick texture, and abrupt finish.
