BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Cambridge Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States | website

Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.75%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
A blend of pale malts starts us off, combined with our house Belgian yeast strain and a touch of coriander in the kettle, which provides a subtle spiciness to compliment fruity plum flavors and a lingering fresh tartness. Hops are at a minimum, and the fresh plum juice lends bright fruit character plus a really cool color to the beer as showcased in its tulip-style glass. Highly effervescent, fruity but not sweet as the fruit is fully fermented, with a fully dry finish.

Not much of a head when the server brought it to the table. Dark brown body.

Menu description mentioned plum juice and coriander. Coriander was restrained. Plum juice provided a slightly fruity but not sweet flavor. Finish had some tartness. This is not a sweet fruit beer.

Would be good with dessert or a light meal (salad, perhaps, or fruit). Also good for a hot summer day.

A Belgian style beer with plum juice added. Ok.

Faded red pour, not all that bright looking. Maybe shiny with a good light at hand. Off-white head, bubbly and lacing.

Sweet aroma. Soft toast and cherry-eque. I'm not quite sure which plums were used, seems like red at least.

In contrasting this with Lindeman's lambics this one is not as sweet or syrupy. It's sporadic with some coriander and clove, biscuit and plum. The plum is slick feeling, and not all that fruity. Just enough, though. Would be nice with a cheese cake or something like that. Ice cream, maybe.
