A-Hazy body burnt-orange in color. The orange blushes giving the color of peach skin. One finger maybe a little more of carbonated misty head. Thin and "poppy" head depletes rather quick. But the body hues keep myself eyeballing the beer like I'm appraising a jewel.
S-Peach. Nectarine. Plum. Juicy. Honey-like sweet malts. Sour grape skins. Lilac. Floral. Perfumes your glass with time.
T-Smooth wheat. Wheat bread. I love the smooth almost flavorless wheat akin to straw and yet it's grainy enough to taste. Restrained orange. Dark dusty grapes/must. Hop is there, swish around you'll find it. Low level bitter hop primarily resides on the finish. And the obvious dominating plum is a refreshing take on witbier.
M-Low-high to medium-low body. Medium carbonation. Low tartness and sweetness like a plum starts the sip. Malty middle. Smooth sizzling medium bitter finish. Medium drying.
O-Nothing out of tune. The body color is the highlight of the beer, the plum addition as well.
Refreshing. A seasonal Sam Adams you'll look forward to every winter.
