COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pluots are some of our favorite fruits. Created by cross-breeding apricots and plums, there are dozens of varieties with an amazing range of color and flavor. All through the summer, Blossom Bluff Orchards picks each variety at its peak: Dapple Dandy, Honey Punch, Flavor Queen, Black Kat & Dapple Jack were all added to a sour blonde ale and aged in wine barrels to create this funky oak-aged brew.

Downright awesome. Having been a fan of canned plums for some time this was very interesting. Nose is the plums plus a sharpness. Appearance is very orange, but maybe some pink? Very hazy but that is okay. Mouthfeel very assertive, bubbly, sharp, then goes nicely sour and stays that way. Taste is mostly tartness, less of the plum than on the nose.

375 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 12/21/2016. Pours lightly hazy pinkish golden/orange color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of tart plum, peach, apricot, lemon, lime, green apple, pear, white grape, melon, berry, white wine, pepper, oak, hay, straw, wheat, and cracker; with lighter notes of vanilla, leathery/musty funk, slight vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, pluots, wine barrels, and moderate pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of tart plum, peach, apricot, lemon, lime, green apple, pear, white grape, melon, berry, white wine, pepper, oak, hay, straw, wheat, and cracker; with lighter notes of vanilla, leathery/musty funk, slight vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tartness and light yeast/tannic oak spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart plum, peach, apricot, lemon, lime, green apple, pear, white grape, melon, berry, white wine, pepper, oak, hay, straw, wheat, cracker, light leathery/musty funk, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, pluots, wine barrels, and moderate pale malt flavors; with an awesome malt/tartness balance, and zero puckering flavors after the finish. Light dryness from tart/spiciness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy/acidic, and lightly tangy/tannic balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6.8%. Overall this is a great fruited sour/wild ale. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, pluots, wine barrels, and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth, clean and quite refreshing to drink with the mellow tart/lactic finish. Awesome balance between fruit, Brett, and wine barrels; with a nice malt backbone. Not a ton of Lacto, but adequate. Was hoping for more acidity, but this was still very enjoyable.

Oakes (17676) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 15, 2017
Cloudy, pale pinkish, thin head. Fairly harsh sharp acidity, touch of yeast, and a touch of fruit but overall a bit harsh.

fiulijn (20515) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2017
Draught at Darby’s Gastown, Vancouver
Cloudy light brown, dirty color, with compact persistent head. The aroma is fruity, sour, wine barrel. Smooth, with a good body strength; the acidity is quite aggressive, but then it’s supported by a nice component of undefined stone fruit, and a feeling of yogurt.
Interesting; very good fruit Sour.

radarsock (1194) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 11, 2017
Rallies with an assertive, steadfast acidity.
Captivatingly practical in how its straw character absentmindedly floats around until captured. From the back of my throat to the tip of my tongue, its tropical acidity bathes my gustatory system enticingly. Chewy like a runny, sun-gooey cheese with some similar flavor contributors, such as having a cheese rind note take center stage a breath before swallow.
Chia seeds, kiwifruit, pilsner malt, plum skins, caramelized sea salt experienced at its triumphant finish.
Bracingly sour if you leave it to warm all by its lonesome, but if consumed fresh and from a good batch it’s guaranteed to give you an entirely different plane of existence.

Got this one in the liquor store across the street from the Prohibition Pig, on the recommendation of our recently Florida-bound beer friend. Smells like sour fruit (yep), and pours a slightly pink cloud -- sort of like really dank pink lemonade. The taste is fruity but tangy in a nice way; some definitely hint of plum (or I guess pluot, which are a far superior fruit anyway) and sour citrus and grape. Good for a fourth of July walkin’ fest: walking 10 miles to the beach, and then a double feature of Christopher Walken movies with your boo boo and big ol’ salads.

Ktwse (4887) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2017
Pours hazy orange with low white head. Aroma of green grapes, grass, apples, apricot, citrus. Taste is medium fruit tart, light citrus zest, mild sweetness in the finish. Light and crisp body with average carbonation.
