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.
