COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cross pollinate your tastebuds with Belgian imagination and you’ll be sipping this ale while visions of pluots dance in your head. Pluots? A hybrid of apricots and plums that impart a subtle sweetness. Ferment that with a wild Belgian yeast strain and you have a fruity yet spicy nature with a body reminiscent of red wine. Delicious.

Hazy gold beer, small white head.Palate is smooth and semi dry and very slightly viscous. Mild carbonation. Mild creamy malt. Little spice. Syrupy fruits. Very subtle sherbet. Light semi dry finish. Quite Belgian Golden like, shame the fruits were not better showcased.

Draft. Bright golden color, white edge head. Aroma is a bit odd, but then again I don’t know what a pluot is, and I don’t feel like googling it. I do know what a kulatt (?sp) is, because my mother used to wear them in the ’60s, so there you go. The taste is not unpleasant, but sweet, strupy, and similarly unrecognizable. Easily the best pluot beer I’ve ever had.

Draught at The Rover, Göteborg. Clear golden beer with a decent bubbly white head. Malty bready aroma, yeast, a fruity, probably pluot, grapes, some caramel. Malty fruity flavor, biscuits, warming alcohol, apricot, grapes. Decent beer.

Slightly hazy, light blonde colour, not much head. Fruity - plummy - aroma. Sweet character with sticky, slightly gluey malts, and a light pluot accent. Ok, kind of vaguely Belgian-accented fruit ale.

yngwie (17049) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 12, 2014
Bottle, 22oz. A clear one, except lots of micro floaties. No head to speak of, just some white bubbles. The aroma is very fruity, with a vinous touch. Some hoppy notes. Peaches, pine cone notes and a distinct fruity sweet touch. It feels quite sweet on thep palate, guess it’s the alcohol kicking in. Full body, slightly warming and with a nice carbonation. Lasting warming, sweet and fruity finish. Sort of cloying this one, without being that. Still not a favorite of mine. 140522

Golden pour with a short lived white head. Nose is slightly fruity with very little, if any, pluot. Mostly just sugary sweetness, some metal, and alcohol. A little bit of yeast and spice. The flavor is just more of the same. Sugary sweetness, light fruit, and some metal. Disappointing.

Bottle - Apricot, wheat and banana? To much weird fruit going on. Clear gold no head. Sweet juice, again too much going on and sweet and sticky. Not a fan. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours gold with a white head. Aroma is musty/dusty. Med body. Flavor is vaguely tart/sour with some very light fruit. It’s quite subtle. So subtle one must wonder whether the accountant restricted use of ingredients. Yet it has 10% ABV, so there were ingredients. With time it gets a bit tart/sour. Must be one of those beers that’s too subtle for us hop/sour heads. So it does finish fruity/tart/sour, but too lightly. I’m very conflicted on this ale.

Ratman197 (14826) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Bomber poured a clear gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of straw, earthiness, barnyard funk and light fruittiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, earthiness, light fruittiness and light barnyard funk with a smooth dry lingering funky fruity finish. I think New Belgium is becoming the Dogfish of Colorado, just because you can put it in a beer does’nt mean you should!

3.5
Scopey (14708) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2013
Tap at Octobachi, Charleston. It pours clear light orange with a small white head. The nose is sweet, apricot, peach, yellow plum, emmental cheese, hay and tangerine. The taste is apricot, tangerine, plum, apple, clean sweetness, touch of alcohol, light spice, earth and hay with a sweetish finish. Medium body and moderatel carbonation. Smooth, fruity and sweet. Hides the abv well. Not much to it, but a solid fruit beer nonetheless.
