With the onslaught of IPA rolling out of the Evil Twin camp, its easy for the palate to become plum tuckered out. But another IPA that's plum hopped up and plum soured out folds into a fruit beer with a juicy taste and a juicy body. But what fruit are they using? I just can't put my finger on it.

Blomme pours with a pale straw color and with a slight tint of lavender. Its frothy eggshell head pops with a sour cidery and winey nose and a bright citrus kick from hops. Plum fruit wafts lastly with hints of berry, stone fruit and grape. Flavors however and softly pastry-like with suggestions of caramel and honey laying the beer's first tracks on the tongue.

Part IPA and part wild ale, the different beer styles take turns teasing the palate, trending more hoppy in one sip but then more sour the next, and then back again. Hoppy with the bright orange and red grapefruit character has us bracing for a bitter finish while the plum and fruit nuances of cider and wine have us expecting a sour crescendo. Tastes converge for a finish that hits all the tastebuds at once, seeming of bitter fruit wine or a sour citrusy tonic.

Medium light in body, any attempt at medium has really no shot. Bitter resins, drying alcohol and piquant acidity triangulate into a crisp, clean and refreshing taste with the simple twang of fruit skins and grape seed for a mild astringency for the beer's only real distraction.
