Brewed in 2011 with a best by date of 2016.
Not much head. Small amount of off white head bubbles produced from a vigorous pour. They dissipate quickly but stick around the edge of the glass for a bit. Looks like a hazy iced tea/dark orange.
Oh my the smell...as soon as I cracked this a sweet plum smell erupted getting me excited about this. There is a sweet sugariness along with some grape. Reminds me of must.
The flavor took me by surprise. There is plum but also grape, iced black tea, a light acidic character, slight oak, some berry and cherry as well.
Very easy drinking light to medium body with very light carbonation.
Another winner as I delve into Italian brews.

the italian wild ales have been really growing on me, and this plum wild ale is one of the more unique ones ive had. its lavender purple in color, hazed and sedimented, but with a pretty solid inch of white airy head. the nose is so floral, its got hints of vanilla and jasmine too, almost like the bath and body works store, where powerful scents muddle and give you a headache. this is not quite so overblown, but its a similar vibe. not sure plums have much nose to them, so while i smell sweet fruit, plums doesnt really show up. the flavor is so different than the nose. gone are the perfumes and confused fragrances. in their place is a layered brew, with obvious plum and red grape flavors up front, and a tartness that stops short of being sour in the finish. lots of oak, this is almost like a dessert wine, like a candy or a juice, its sweet and the fruit profile is really cool, but it turns funky and bretty and dry and puckery on the back end, a very cool finish to a one of a kind beer. carbonation is right on, and the body is creamy, uncommon in a wild ale. this is so different i can see it not being liked, but i was just in love with it. loverbeer has been totally hit or miss for me, and this is their greatest triumph that i have tasted. worth the steep price they ask for this, its a must try.

Pours a somewhat murky reddish color with minimal head. Nose is of candied cherries, some funky Brett, a touch of acid, and some bright plum notes. Taste is mildly tart up front and gives way to candied fruits. Heavy Brett notes on the finish. Mouthfeel is moderate with medium carbonation. Overall, pretty nice but not sour enough considering the lactobacillus used.
