troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - APR 8, 2011
[Tap] Pours a hazy shade of light pink. Sweet and fruity nose includes berries and lighter grainy notes. The taste is sweet, but also tart. Raspberry and rhubarb are the two flavors coming forward the most. Decent mouthfeel for the style. Mild, sweet finish. Actually not too bad.

joeymacaroni (309) - Wagontown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 15, 2009
very light, clear amber with a pinkish tint. thin white head. aroma is bready, slightly metallic with dark fruit (...plum, as you could guess...). flavor is pruny, dark fruit, malty-bready quality. sweet, malty, almost saccharine finish.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale ber alles, Arizona, USA - MAR 3, 2009
pours mostly orange gold but it does have a slight pink hue to it. the head is pretty much just a lasting white ring. it smells mostly of honey (or at least that tc house smell of honey) with notes of caramel/maltiness, flowers, slight spice and some tart fruit which i can assume is plums. the palate is fairly sweet but it seems to work by adding a bit of richness... flavors of honey (honey this time. not just house flavor!), actual plum meat and not the skins and a slightly spicy finish. sweet for sure but it is balanced well enough to make it enjoyable from some fruity tartness. the body is medium. mouth feel is a bit sticky and slick but bitey from spice and carbonation.

its a bit one dimensional but im sure peeps love this one! 6/3/6/3.5/13/3.2

DoubleBubble (107) - Mescal Lakes (wherever that is), Arizona, USA - FEB 12, 2008
Pours a pinkish color with a very small light pink head. Tastes like most of their other fruit beers. Fruity and sweet. Drinkable, but not overly impressed. Notes from last summer.

Tap @ Brewery. Definently get plumbs on the nose. Pinkish body color with white head. Besides the sweet plum this one also had a decent blckberry flavor as well. Carbination and not as tart as some fruit beers can be. Dryness on the palate could of been either from the three beers or chicken wings take your pick. Bg gulp of water for the road.

On tap @ brewery - Pours a hazy purplish-amber color with a small light pink head. Aroma is very light fruit (plum I guess). Flavor is sweet light plum with little else. Medium body. A typical TC fruit beer. Not bad.

FlacoAlto (4147) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 4, 2007
This beer is quite hazy with a light purple, almost pink color to it. It is topped by a touch of purple tinged froth. The aroma is lightly tart smelling with a quite apparent fruitiness to it that is a mix of plum, cherry and berry notes.

This is quite sweet, which really accentuates some solid berry flavors, but not really any distinctly plum flavors. This is in fact very sweet, though I would not characterize it as being cloying, but it is certainly a bit too much for my personal tastes. This, like most of the fruit beers here, is very one dimensional. It is certainly an easy drinking beer, even enjoyable at times and I have a feeling that those who like really fruity beers will really enjoy this.
