a beer of excellent quality, but outside of appearance, I am not sure how much the plums really add. its gorgeous bright rose pink in color, hazy, with a bubbly airy white head that settles slowly. never seen a beer so pink. the nose is very much like the base beer, spunky and acidic, decidedly bacterial, and wheat based. the plums may add some mellow sweetness, tartness, but its real minimal. the beer does have a little plum flavor, like that slightly less ripe fruit that sticks to the pit. I can pick up that mouthwatering quality in some sips and not in others, very strange. I also taste the same funky fermentation flavors I always get from crooked stave, which is the appeal of these beers to so many. bright and acidic, floral and unique, summery but versatile, its really good stuff. well carbonated and light, about perfect there, but it could hold its gas a touch longer. the plums make it pretty, but they don't impact the flavor as much as other fruit may. I look forward to many incarnations of this.

Appearance - Purple grapefruit color with little to no head or lacing
Smell - don't really get any fruit flavor to this one. lots of tartness
taste - This one is all over the place. Sweet, but tart, then sour, but fun complexity to it. not much plum flavor though
Mouthfeel - easy to drink, but leaves you wanting a little more
Overall - fun beer, but the plum was muddled for me.

3.74/5 rDev -9%
375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Pretty rosy pink body. A little haze. Thin collar. Not much else of a head.
Smell - Fruity. I don't know that I'd call it plum without already knowing it was plum, but having read the label I'd definitely say it's plum. Brett. Some oak.
Taste - Less distinctly plummy, but fruity. Brett isn't so intense. The aftertaste is definitely plum and it's pretty acidic. Oak adds a nice dimension.
Mouthfeel - A shade watery. Medium carbonation. A hint of tang.
Overall - Not as complex as other Crooked Stave beers. I had a decent pour of this, but I get the feeling I would like it more if I could drink more of it.
