Notes from the back of a coaster dated 12-4-13.

12 oz. tulip on tap at Ed's in Winona, MN. Hazy straw/orange color with a few white bubbles. Good lacing, but small white head.

Aroma is predominately fruity, mostly plum and apricot jam (as one could imagine). Mild funk and booze flavors. Pale malt along with a definitely spicy (mostly clove) yeast. Slight chardonnay type smell.

Flavor is fruit, alcohol, and sour. Apricot and plum are of course dominant as in the nose. Flavor is sweet but not cloying, and the alcohol is definitely noticeable but not overpowering.

Medium-bodied with good carbonation. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel.

Overall this is a beer that will scare most people away, but I loved it. Very, very complex with just enough funk to cut through the sweet fruitiness.

22 oz bottle poured into a New Belgium globe.
10% ABV, Best enjoyed by May 2014

A - A wonderful plume of carbonation rises from the glass' etching to a low, poorly retained white head. The alcohol level brings the white foam down but little fingers of lace still adorn the glass above the crystal clear goldenrod beer.

S - Subtle apricot fruitiness emerges from the smooth pale malt aroma, increasing with intensity as the beer warms. Suggestions of candied plums and faint alcohol also come fourth with a trickle of wild Belgian yeast and soft spice notes.

T - A wonderful blend of apricot, dried mango, and candied plum fruitiness swirl around the delicate pale and pilsner malt sweetness that never gets too cloying. Mellow white pepper yeastiness and fruity alcohol finish Plout out.

M - Smooth and medium-full bodied, Plout is most definitely sweet though never quite over the top, lingering with alcohol warmth and a tickle of carbonation for a nice and deceptively potent summer beer.

O - Plout might drink like a mildly fruity lawnmower beer but this deceptively strong brew packs a punch behind it's smooth maltiness and faintly tart Belgian yeast.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a New Belgium Globe glass. Bottle says enjoy by May 2014.

Appearance: Pours a bright and clear golden orange with a lot of bubbles. About one finger of white head that quickly fades into a thin patchy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing around the glass.

Smell: A unique and zesty aroma of sweet and tart fruits, spice, and yeast. Belgian yeast with some hints of funk and clove spice. Big scent of the pluot with hints of apricot and plum along with hints of apple cider, orange, pineapple, papaya, pear, and a little banana. Candied sugar sweetness. Also picking up a little fall like cinnamon or nutmeg spice. Light hints of pale malt and a very subtle presence of hops. A very fruity and wine like aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, an interesting and juice like Belgian style taste of tart and sweet fruits with spices and yeast. Belgian yeast with some funk and clove spice with a little cinnamon. Big juicy taste from the pluot with notes of apricot and plums along with some tart apple cider, white grapes, papaya, pineapple, orange, pear, and banana. Sweet Belgian candied sugars. A little taste of bready pale malt. Hops are very subtle. The fruits dominate for the most part. A pretty good taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with a fairly high level of carbonation. Juicy, tart, and somewhat sticky with a champagne like fizzyness. Alcohol heat feels fairly mild.

Overall: A pretty interesting and decent take on the Tripel style. Solid fruit flavors and the sweetness is actually kept from becoming too overwhelming. Not great but a lot better than the ratings its getting.

OK, first, I love this series. Very creative collaborations. This is one of the better ones. Let this age in the bottle for almost a year. It was a good decision. High ABV is unnoticeable except for a slight warming in the stomach. Nose is Belgian yeast, plum and candi sugar. A slight farmhouse funkiness is present as well. Pour was a beautiful light golden color. Small fizzy head. Lots of tiny bubbles in a slightly hazy body. Taste is perfect. Lightly sour with candi sweetness. A little grape seed bitterness on the finish. Medium heavy body is mitigated by effervescent mouthfeel. A very nice beer. One I would drink again in a heartbeat.

Poured a nice cloudy orange with a one finger white head. Pretty nice looking. Scents of apricot, peach, melon, pineapple, and yes, pluot, as well as overripe fruit and sour fruit with a bit of earthy yeast and hints of alcohol that become more prominent as the beer warms. A good aroma, very fruit forward, very appealing as a result. Taste follows the aroma. Sweet fruit, apricot, tangerine, melon and yes, pluot, with white grape juice and moscato towards the end of the sip and on the finish. Very sweet, extremely fruity, but not bad. Quite nice if you want something fruity. There is a slight hint of alcohol as the beer warms, hiding behind all the fruity flavors. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy bodied, quite sticky in the mouth, with moderate high carbonation. A bit of a sipping beer as a result, but it doesn't feel bad at all. Overall this is a nice beer. It's different, quite sweet, but good if that's what you want. The fruity flavors are on full display, and that feels like what this beer was supposed to be about. I enjoyed it.

A: This poured a clear gold with almost no head.
S: It smelled like kiwi and apricots, with some wild honey and peach.
T: It tasted like sweet apricot and peach and kiwi, with some honey and cantaloupe. It had a clean tropical aftertaste.
M: It was oily with some carbonation. Nice smooth body.
D: This was a great unique beer, with delicious tropical scent and taste. The body was nice, and the finish was smooth, with well hidden alcohol. So it was easy to drink. Quality brew.

New Belgium Lips of Faith Pluot. Ale Brewed with Pluot juice. (Hey, just between you and me? What's a pluot? I honestly don't know…shhh…)

10% alc. by vol. Best enjoyed by May 2014. (Whew!) There's more writing on the side, but it's in pink lettering, and I'm not going to attack that now.

Psychedelic graphics. Pastels, neons, loop-de-loops. I still don't know what a pluot is, but I'm going to open it and drink it.

Hazed, peachy coloring, slim white head. Alright, looking good.

Aroma: funky fresh and wild. Fruity. Tropical. What? (is a pluot, I continue to ask)….nothing but fruity, no hop bitterness, nothing really coming through from malt.

Taste: Starts tart, sour, nearly bracingly so, and swiftly covered up with fruit, and little else. Pear, apricot, peach, …in that order…sweet and sour are involved in a great debate, wrestling for dominance on the palate. Incredibly unique taste, there's sourness, and there's fruit, but the result is beyond what we normally know. Whoa.

This is a crazy beer, and I love it. Lots of fruit, lots of sour, plenty of sweet, massive tons of Belgian-style yeast craziness.

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into a DFH signature glass. Best before May 2014.

A: Light head is stark white and fades fast. The beer is clear and pale gold.

S: Light, tart, lovely fruit! Not gonna lie, I had no idea what a pluot was, but the apricot ancestry is obvious. Spicy-floral Belgian yeast is a perfect complement.

T/M: I quite like it, initially. Much spicier than anticipated, with a thick, sugary mouthfeel (reminds me of white grape juice). Honestly, despite scant effervescence, I want more carbonation. This is good, but oppressively sweet at times.

O: I really wanted to like this, and I do/did for large parts of it, but 22 ounces of it is too much. The beer is too sweet, too fruity, not spicy enough.

Had on tap at the Bryant laske Bowl. It arrives bright gold with a thin finely bubbled white foam collar. Fruit and saison yeast aromas dominate the nose. It tastes mostly plum with traces of apricot over light bread. Medium to medium light body, above average carbonation. Different, decent but not their best work.

The beer pours hazy golden orange with a thin, white head. There are some visible bubbles rising in the beer. There's a nice fruity aroma that comes from the beer. There's bright plum and apricot. There's also some nice grassy hops with a touch of spice. There's some Belgian yeast with some of that mild funk. The fruity sweetness from the juices come through on the first sip, bringing plum, apricot, and white grape. There's some grassiness and spiciness and just a hint of that Belgian yeast funk. There's plenty of sweetness there and I get the booze. The body is medium to full with moderate carbonation. The finish is slightly dry and clean. This is a sipper. This is a decent beer.

22oz bomber

Appearance - bright white finger of head, a bit pebbly, the carbonation half reminds me of big bubbled soda, quite transparent golden yellow, very nice lacing though

Smell - ripe summer fruits, peaches and plums for sure, the apricot in this hybrid fruit doesn't stand out too much but is faintly noticeable, a bit of graininess and light malts as well, hops are slightly citrus but more earthy in aroma, I was expecting a bit more nose action

Taste - slightly sweet on the tip but then the fruits take hold with their sugars, there is a slight sour acidity that's not too shabby, a little strange but definitely not unenjoyable, very faint malts and the yeast a definite on it's way back, the finish is only slightly hopped and the 10% abv is really difficult to notice

Moutfeel- medium body with a bit of sugar residue left on the tongue

Overall- not a brew to swear by but definitely appreciate it's complexity. I'm surprised at the balance it was able to achieve given the ingredients. Interestingly, this beer might be a way to get some of the white winos on the brew side.

16oz glass at Craft in Cowtown, for the Alberta New Belgium Brewing release party back in February (I gotta pack my written notes a little less securely, I think). A Tripel brewed with that Frankenstein fruit, the pluot, huh? Ok.

This beer appears a glassy, yet mostly clear, pale golden amber hue, with yet another (it's the locale, nothing I can do about that) thin cap of bubbly, fizzy ecru head, which leaves some decent webbed, hovering island lace around the glass as things duly recede.

It smells of plum wine (and that time, back in business school, where the Japanese exchange student, he got bombed on such, and puked in the car ride home the next morning), proper cereal and caramel malts, earthy yeast, mild funk, and tropical fruit-borne hops. The taste is big, dark fruit wine (plums and apricots, sure, but blackberries and cherries too), yeast, much less funk than expected from the nose, bready caramel malt, candi sugar, a bit of free-association dry peach and other befuddled tropical fruit, and a barely bridled flinty booziness.

The carbonation is fairly soft, just a lilting frothiness for the most part, the body a steady medium weight, and generally smooth, with a touch of airy creaminess. It finishes just off-dry, with the complex by default fruit and yeast contending with a burgeoning, rising alcohol edginess.

A nicely fruity, strong Belgian ale, Brett and all - yeasty, and still generally sweet, all in good measure. The pluot does well by its two-headed nature, supplying a sugary character that parries the elevated (even so for this style) booze, remaindering it to the 'well-integrated' pile. Happy to have had the chance to try this, in a heretofore unlikely as hell setting.

You have to be ready and open minded about this one. It pours a nice amber color that leaves a good, heavy lacing that is slowly pulled back towards the beer. Taste begins a sweet citrus with a hint of sour that seems fresh and lively. Then the yeast reminds of its' presence and the finish turns to Tootsie-Pop chocolate with a unique quality punch from the yeast strain that I cannot describe. The mouthfeel is crisp and not at all heavy. The carbonation is surprisingly there considering the ABV.

Pluot, from New Belgium's Lips of Faith series. 10% ABV, ale brewed with pluot (plum/apricot hybrid fruit) juice. I can smell the fruit without bringing the beer up to my nose!

Appearance: No head. Dingy, yet bright yellow.

Smell: As is to be expected, lots of yellow/white plum and apricot smell. Faint apricot skin. Smells pretty sweet.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Dry apricot flavor, with a moderate acid backing. Secondary hit of fairly strong caramelized sugars, as if from lighter wood, or perhaps white grape port, mixed with plum skin.

Pretty nice, actually! Not quite what I was expecting, but I like it.

Poured into a beer mug. 22 oz. bottle.

enjoyed this bottle shared with the wife poured chilled in a cervoise and goblet.

The color is golden with hazy look and quick dropping white head with fine bead and visibly carbonated. Fruity floral, juicy and spicy aroma with yeast ester with mild alcohol aroma. The feel has tangy lightly sour texture with medxium high carbonation with slight spice and mild sweetness upfront with mostly dry finish with mild alcohol influence.

The tangy fruit is noticeable with stone fruit quality and tangy melon-like aspect with strong phenolic yeast with mild malt presence and spice with mild toasted grain with fruit that subsides rapidly and gives way to a dry alcohol warmth in the finish. This is not a bad beer -okay except that fruit is lackluster just an ordinary tripel I suppose with alcohol heat and yeast more upfront in the taste than is necessary.

Poured into a Nostradamus flute glass. Pours a light to medium golden amber with a fine half-finger off-white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of spicy sweet malt and fruit juice, with no distinct individual fruit character, faint Belgian yeast and spicing. Flavor has more of the distinct pluot (plum / apricot hybrid) flavor, initially lightly estery, but developing more sourness and a bit of astringency. Medium bodied. Pluot captures the flavor of the fruit, but that may be too mild to carry the ale. The tripel yeast and spicing are fairly subtle here and are overwhelmed by the high ABV. Interesting, but unbalanced and too sweet/sour and boozy. I'm glad New Belgium is trying new fruits and styles, but this one is a miss.

22 ounce bottle into signature globe glass, bottled on 4/5/2013. Pours slightly hazy golden amber color with a 1 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of pear, apple, apricot, peach, plum, grape, honey, white wine, light funk, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruit, malt, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of pear, apricot, apple, peach, plum, grape, honey, herbal, light pepper, white wine, light funk, and yeast earthiness. Light fruity tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruits, peach, plum, grape, honey, herbal, white wine, light funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Nice balance and complexity of malt, yeast ester, and fruit addition flavors; with zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a slick and lightly syrupy mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a good fruited Belgian strong ale. All around good balance and complexity of fruity yeast, malt, and pluot additions; and quite smooth to sip on for 10%. A nicely enjoyable offering.

22oz into a tulip. Somehow this is the second tripel brewed with pluots that I will have tried (the first being Perennial Violet, which I enjoyed).

A: Pours a crystal-clear straw gold with a moderate white head. Sort of odd to see a filtered tripel but ok.

S: Pluot juice is certainly noticeable in the nose, with some sweet stone fruit esters, cloves, grain.

T: The pluot juice is more subtle in the flavor, but brings a sweet fruitiness. Prominent note of booze, floral, cakey pale malt, perfumy.

M: Medium-bodied with light carbonation.

O: Certainly not a bad beer, but it's a bit too sweet and boozy. The base tripel seems like it's the regular New Belgium Trippel, which I'm not a huge fan of.

Served in a cervoise at Tap House - Des Plaines.

Another Tap House LoF offering today. Lots of rubber chickens...how apropos. Anyway, this stuff pours a clear brass topped by a finger or so of dirty white foam. The nose comprises pluot juice (it's pretty plummy, but I assume it's the eponymous pluot), Belgian candi sugar, light clove, and a touch of sweet biscuit. The taste brings in more of the same, the pluot taking the leaad, followed by a strong current of sweet biscuit laden with clove, black pepper, and light cinnamon. The body is a stolid medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, a pretty solid flavored tripel, though one that let's the flavoring dictate terms to the tripel base (it doesn't really hurt the proceedings here, I'm just saying).

Pluot pours a clear golden color with a large head. There is a mellow but sweet and fruity yeasty aroma. The taste has sweet and fruity flavors. Strong Apricot flavoring. Good strong flavors, goo carbonation but fades very quickly. Overall a nice sweet fruit beer that is similar to drinking apple juice.

22 oz. bottle, with best before May 2014 printed on the side of the bottle. My second beer in the New Belgium Lips Of Faith series; an ale brewed with pluot juice. Tripel is not a style I am too familiar with either, and this might be my first time reviewing one on BeerAdvocate. Needless to say, I'm going in as unbiased as possible.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter glass.

A - Aggressive pour straight down the center yields about one finger of soapy white bubbles on top of a golden yellow body with partial clarity and partial fogginess. Looks like a cloudy apple juice almost. Looks pretty nice.

S - Smell is of some acidic apple juice, citrus, grains, corn, & alcohol fumes. Smells like a glass of cheap fumey pinot noir at times. White grapes, peaches, and apricots come out as the beer warms for a few minutes.

T - Taste follows the nose: acidic apple juice, white grapes, white wine, grain alcohol, some cherry. Plum and apricot isn't exactly the first thing that comes to mind when I drink this. The usual Belgian yeast derived pineapple fruitiness is present, along with some clove and some additional spiciness. A half-artificial Welch's grape juice taste is what keeps coming to mind, and it reminds me more of a white wine instead of red wine, like the bottle says.

M - Feel is slightly tart and citric, with some lip-puckering sourness to it, but then it is also dry and grainy in the finish, which makes for a strange combination of things. A bit fruity and sticky also. Not heavily carbonated, but still somewhat heavy bodied.

Overall, an all around strange brew. As much as I want to like it, I am having a hard time with it. Fruity, sour, grainy, & yeasty. I don't know how else to put it. Big 10.00% abv isn't noticeable at all in either the smell or the taste. Normally, I'd say you would have to be accustomed to the style to enjoy this, but this is still a strange take on the style. It was good for a novelty experience, but probably not a choice example of the style. Still, glad to have tried it. Pick it up while you can.

Clear light golden color in the tall Saxo tulip. Pure white foam and lots of lacing. A nice spritzy mouthfeel with the bubbles prickling your tongue as you sip.

This is rather startling at first, and second sip. Could there possibly be a fruitier beer? It's tart and woody with a screwy yeast taste. Candied sour plums is more like it. This is so sweet and the yeast seems to intensify the fruit and the sugar and the alcohol. My head is spinning. Even as a late-night taster this is too crazy and intensely flavored. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Barons Marketplace on Point Loma Blvd.

Pluot should have meant bright, funky summer in a bottle, and they have the elements there. The problem is, they didn't get the mix quite right.

The sight has it right: Crystal clear gold and bubbly, with a powder white head, good retention and decent lacing.

But things start to seem off in the smell. Their website names not 3, not 4, but eight different scents (7 fruits) that should come off in the aroma. They might all be there, but I couldn't smell them all. I got some muddled plum, Brett, and hints of banana and pineapple...and that might (probably) be reaching.

The taste is also muddled. It's spot-on at the front: bright, bubbly and fruity with a semi-smooth mouthfeel. But as it sits, a mix of funk, plums and all spice mixes together into a fermented fruit salad with alcohol to boot. The end is mainly funk and booze, but it isn't too bad if it goes down quickly.

So what kind of beer is this supposed to be? A bold, boozy sip/gulper like the Peach Porch Lounger or something lighter, like an exotic summer shandy with pluots instead of lemons?

The mix is interesting with plenty of high notes -- definitely worth trying -- but it's by no means New Belgium's best summer offer.

A: no head really on a bright golden clear body. No real lacing.

S: not much here, mostly chardonnay notes, some yeast, phenols and breads

T: syrupy sweet, lemon, apricot, champagne, grains, wheat, breads, some yeast. Overall strange and almost has a "cheapness" to it. like boxed wine.

M: medium body and moderate carbonation. no dryness.

Overall: this one tastes like bad champagne for me. It has a strange syrup sweetness. weird but not in a good way. Pass this one up. Its uniquness isnt worth it. I suspect its a bad base beer and not the pluot making this one not so good.
