COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’ve teamed up with Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales to create a special collaborative oak aged ale with plums, brewed to celebrate Plum Market’s 5 year anniversary. The special sour blend is aged on organic Royal Diamond plums; it’s an amber with a hint of roast, malty, sweet, and sour, and the delicate aroma and delicious flavor of more plums than you can shake a stick at.

Bottle shared by Ramy at Paul’s housewarming tasting. Pours a somewhat hazed peach tinged amber with a thin white head. Acetic and tart, somewhat old fruit. Medium-bodied, tart with a nice amount of funk and a bit of tart acid. Long acid and funk into the finish.

750 ml bottle shared by dudeabide. Pours a hazy light brown amber color with a small, disappearing off white head. The aroma has some light roast, JP funk, plum/dark fruits, tart character, and some wood. The flavor is much of the above; the plums are more noticeable, JP funk, some toasted malts, earthy and some oak. Overall, this was pretty mild and a bit disappointing considering what some people wanted in trade for it originally.

750 ml bottle from secret santa. Thanks. Batch 976. Pours a murky dark amber color with a small white head that soon fizzes away to a fine ring. The aroma is tart with sour dark fruits and some light funk. The taste is complex with sour plums, sour grapes, oak, vanilla and caramel malts. The palate is on the lighter side and the carbonation is lively. Finishes medium in duration with lingering sour fruits. Overall: I kinda liked this, its on the subtle side, but that’s OK with me. A good sipper--Pair with Jarlsberg cheese and cashews

Pour from bottle. Semi cloudy amber pour, with an off white head. Lightly fruity, plums, lemon, mild sourness, some funk, malt, and toasty. Overall mild sour, not very flavorful, but still nice.

(750ml bottle, batch 976, Bottled: 03-16-2012) Pours a cloudy amber-brown body with a small white head. Aroma of plum, chocolate, light roastiness, and vinous. Flavor of plum, lemon, JP signature funkiness, minerals, caramel, and wood leading to a mildly bitter, dry finish.

nuplastikk (6220) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 29, 2013
750ml bottle shared by Ryan. Very mellow, restrained. Subtle malt backbone, mildplum and sour edges, some lemon. The sour fruit flavors meld together nicely. Not much of a head, oily residue. Orange marmalade thing going on. Easy drinking, quite enjoyable.

Hazy amber beer, little off white head. Light sour nose, some minerals. Light palate, dry and with mild carbonation. Llightly sour. Nice fruits - the plums are light and a little sour. Mild white wine vibe. Dry finish. Not bad.

ICEatALAMO (1349) - Troy, Michigan, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle. The pour is a light amber. The aroma is a light sour with some fruit. The taste is chalky and boring. Unimpressed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
