Sampled on draft this beer poured a bright golden color with a small white head. The aroma was sweet, tangy and had a noticeable plum element. The flavor was sweet and fruity with notes of plum and apricot. The finish was long and fruity. Lovely.

Cloudy maple color, thin wispy head. Subtle aroma, slightly sulphurous, a little vegetable/leafy. Fruity, lightly sour, a little vinegar, lightly sweet and bitter. About half-crisp. Fairly fizzy, medium-light body. Interesting. Raspberries would have done a little better, in my opinion.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours yellow with white head. Hazy. Fruity nose with slight malt. Taste is sweet plum with balanced malt profile. Little hop character, but a crisp finish . Another spot on fruit beer from the boys at R-towne.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Pour House. I’m guessing this is similar to the beer of the same name that once graced John Harvard’s in Monroeville. A hazy plum flesh color with a small fizzy white head. The aroma is grassy with some indiscernible fruit sweetness. From the taste, I wouldn’t know it was plum if you didn’t tell me. Very grainy with a little hint of what seems like plum, but it could almost be mistaken for skunking. A very light body, but it would be ok for a refreshing summer beer.
