So, this may be the first Frankenfruit beer that I've had. It is a hazy, cloudy orange-gold. It is a complex, fruity, and a little yeast-earthiness. Subtle malt. I am usually critical of fruit beer, but this one is very nice. A mix of sweet malt and mild tartness, layered with lots of fruit. There is a lot of plum flavor, and the apricot is also detectable. No ho flavor at all. Medium body with soft notes. This is a very solid and well-made beer.

3.71/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Bottle gushed when opened. Hazy apricot color with 3-4 four fingers of head even with a delicate pour.

S - Plum and plum skins with belgian yeast. Spice, candi sugar and white wine notes. Alcohol notes as it warms along with a light sweetness.

T - Fruity and tart. Stone fruit, white wine, very dry, spice and pepper, plum with a touch of alcohol heat.

M - Medium fizzy mouthfeel and very dry. A touch of alcohol heat.

D - Not sure if it is supposed to be this dry and tart or if that has something to do with the bottle gusher. Decent and interesting.

(Served in a tulip glass)

A- This beer has a touch of hazy to he orangish-yellow body with a sticky foam of soft rocky white peaks that stick to the sides of the glass with each sip. The second pour is completely hazy and the head is just as beautiful.

S- The light plum skin aroma has a dry abbey yeast ester note in the finish.

T- The dry tartness has a slight fruity hint to it with a dry jam note growing as the beer opens. A field corn flavor finishes the beer with some triple yeast esters of club soda and dry spun sugar aswell.

M- This beer has a light mouthfeel with a tight fizz and no alcohol heat or astringency noticed.

O- The nice triple qualities are very soft with the tartness standing tall. The corn flavors grows really strong and covers the delicate hints of fruit that are already fading.

Poured into Tripel Karmliet glass. Appears a slightly hazy gold with a generous, pillowy white head. Heavy coat of lacing left behind. The nose features familiar Belgian esters up front, notes of lemon, cloves, and apricot come through. I have never experienced a pluot, so I can't say that I pick it up in the aroma, but I certainly get some faint apricot notes which pair nicely with the lemon and doughy yeast character. The taste has some candied fruit up front, pluot I presume, with a slight tartness to follow. The tartness brings a dry tannic quality to the palate and finishes with a crisp and slightly sweet note. The notes don't exactly all agree with eachother. Mouthfeel is medium with moderate to high carbonation. Overall, interesting to drink, the pluot doesn't seem to elevate the style, if anything it detracts things in this brew.

Poured golden in color with two fingers of white head to Perennial Tulip glass. Smell packs plenty of yeast spice, clove, everything you'd expect from a triple with notes of apricot and apple. Taste brings much of what the nose allows: clove and spice, some apple juice, slightly tart and funky. Moderately carbonated. I'm usually not a big fan of triples but I like the spin on this very much.
