4.3/5  rDev +15.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

a hazy light orange/yellow pour, nice amount of foamy white head. smells very tart and fruity. a lot of similar hints of raspberry style wheat beers.. bready, honey, citrus, orange peel.

very sweet up front. definitely tasting a honey-like ingredient which i am guessing is plums! also a bit tart as well. this is probably the best tasting wheat beer i've had, i'm impressed. bready, but the fruit sweetness makes you want more and more.
light body +, creamy, nicely carbonated, extremely refreshing.

it's hard to give a wheat beer such a high rating, but this one deserves it.

Serving type: growler

3.43/5  rDev -7.5%

On-tap, into a mason jar

Pour is a purple infused orange body. Fairly hazy, with a fluffy one finger cap that bubbled up and fell quickly. Some dots and lines of lace inside the glass.

The nose is of muddled plums and dampy hay. Fruity and light, pretty straightforward. Lightly sweet.

Clean, damp hay rushes over the palate first before fresh plums take hold. Equal parts sweet and tart. The finish is dry and refreshing.

Lighter bodied, firm carbonation. Dry and refreshing.

This beer is exactly what you would expect from the name. A light and refreshing fruit infused beer perfect for sipping on the beach. The plums are a nice touch, not too sweet, and not too tart.

3.4/5  rDev -8.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

4oz pour into CMBC pint glass as part of their flight on June 30th, 2012. *Not sure on the ABV, but think it was right under 6%.

A: Pours out a very hazy, deeper pinkish/orange color. Carb looks good. Bright white head of about a half finger. This ends up leaving some lacing bits.

S: Definitely pulling some fruity notes. Not a plum fan, so not to familiar with their overall "smell", but assume it's some of that along with more wheat malt. Light malts as well.

T: Little touch of tartness, up front, from fruit. Then you get the malts. Grassy hops. More fruit on close. Refreshing summer beer.

M: More medium bodied than the wheat was that I tried earlier. Actually wish THIS beer was a lighter mouthfeel for some reason.

Serving type: on-tap
