Tallgrass Wild Plum Farmhouse Ale, brewed and bottled by Tallgrass Brewing Company, Manhattan, Kansas, established 2007.
Ale brewed with plums. Alcohol 5.6% by vol. 1.047 O.G. 20 IBU.

Hazy, golden appearance, voluminous snow-white, lace-leaving head of foam.

Aroma: soft, slightly spicy, and citrus-y. Unique Belgian yeast aromatics come on the scene and you know you've got a saison, friend. Glimmers of stone fruit in the background. Delightful.

Taste: Sweetness at first, swiftly followed by light spices, with fruit rushing in afterward. Medium bodied, with a mild hop bite, and a flush of Belgian yeast character. The wild plum flavoring is not prominent in the slightest, and it mingles with the citrus and stone fruit flavors already evident in any upright farmhouse ale of good standing. I'm gonna pull out the d-word on this one: damn, it's delicious.

Excellent drinking, outstanding refreshment, fantastic flavor. Damn, this is satisfying. This is the 4th can from my 4-pack, which cost a mere $6. Well worth it.
