Poured from a standard pressure-cap bomber into a New Belgium snifter in high elevation Kalispell, Mont. Reviewed live. The previous reviews don't lead me to believe this is going to be good, but I have an open mind and love pluots, strangely enough.
A- Half-finger white head, fairly static but recedes in 30 seconds. Crystal clear pumpkin color with small but active carbonation. Interesting looking beer.
S- Apricots, plums (a pluot, lel) bubblegum. Slightly spicy in the tripel style. Warm with winey notes. Interesting aroma.
T- Apricot, spicy yeasts and vinous notes. Some sweetness, plums. Not very good, but not bad at all.
M- Vinous. Dry and clean.
O- Above average beer. Good, I was afraid it was going to be rough.
Serving type: bottle

Notes from the back of a coaster dated 12-4-13.
12 oz. tulip on tap at Ed's in Winona, MN. Hazy straw/orange color with a few white bubbles. Good lacing, but small white head.
Aroma is predominately fruity, mostly plum and apricot jam (as one could imagine). Mild funk and booze flavors. Pale malt along with a definitely spicy (mostly clove) yeast. Slight chardonnay type smell.
Flavor is fruit, alcohol, and sour. Apricot and plum are of course dominant as in the nose. Flavor is sweet but not cloying, and the alcohol is definitely noticeable but not overpowering.
Medium-bodied with good carbonation. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel.
Overall this is a beer that will scare most people away, but I loved it. Very, very complex with just enough funk to cut through the sweet fruitiness.
Serving type: on-tap
