At first, the plum flavors in this beer completely overwhelm and not in a good way. However, subsequent sips allow for the greatness in this beer to come out. This is a very refreshing brew, with just the right amount of fruit to go along with just the right amount of hops. Surprisingly, It pairs very well with a meaty lasagna.

750 ml bottle. Served in a goblet, the beer pours a clear ruby red color with about an inch and a half light tan head that sticks around a while. There's also a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like dark fruit (plums, figs), clove, peppery spice, blackberries, caramel and brown sugar. It tastes like sweet and tart dark fruit (plums, figs, raisins, red grapes), blackberries, peppery spice, bready malt/dark bread, cloves, brown sugar and caramel. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's a little bit syrupy and has a good amount of carbonation. I think it's a good brew overall. At $7.99 a bottle (and with $1 from each bottle sold going to a local Breast Cancer charity), I'd buy it again. Definitely worth a try.

A: The beer is clear reddish amber in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high beige colored head that slowly died down but never completely faded away.
S: The smell begins to develop as the beer warms up—there are notes of Belgian yeast and plums.
T: Much like the smell, the plum flavors really begin to develop as the beer warms up and overshadow the Belgian yeast.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found this beer to be somewhat enjoyable, but only after it warmed up and the aromas and flavors of plums began to develop. No traces of alcohol are perceptible.
