look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle # 314 of 432.

Appearance - Hazier than the peach version. Orange body. No real head.

Smell - A little bit of vinegar. Buttery aroma. Kinda funky. Not a distinct plum aroma, but definitely stone fruit.

Taste - Still buttery. More distinct plum and pretty tart. Caramel malt. Lingering plum flavor.

Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation. Maybe medium low. A little slick.

Overall - I didn't like this anywhere near as much as Peach. The buttery flavor killed it.

Pour is dark amber, hazed, with a white foam that disappears immediately. Nose is light plastic, really dirty wheat, buttery biscuit, pitted meaty fruit faintly behind. Huge buttery presence, really bad, faint plastic, meaty, touch of bitterness. Flavors are really dominated by the buttery presence, fruits aren't really there, just off flavors. Body is syrupy and thick, low carb. Bad, just bad.
