Notes / Commercial Description:
Pluots are some of our favorite fruits. Created by cross-breeding apricots and plums, there are dozens of varieties with an amazing range of color and flavor. All through the summer, Blossom Bluff Orchards picks each variety at its peak: Dapple Dandy, Honey Punch, Flavor Queen, Black Kat & Dapple Jack were all added to a sour blonde ale and aged in wine barrels to create this funky oak-aged brew.

2.4/5  rDev -42.9%

Pour is a hazed golden amber with a bubbly white head that sits for some time. Nose is very green right up front, a little off, hint of plastic, some grain notes, faint fruity plums but extremely light. Taste is faintly green up front, gets very sweet and a hint doughy. The plums are sugary and take over mid palate on. Body is syrupy and thick, strong carbonation and a fizzy finish.

Mediocre in my opinion. Looks good, smeels good but meh. Wasn't impressed at all. The pluot, blueberry and cherry all taste the same to me. I cant tell any difference between them.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy pale yellow. Medium white head.

Smell - Light yeasty tartness. Stone fruits.

Taste - Tart and lemony up front. Stone fruit builds up. Tartness builds equally. Some wine-like flavors in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium light body. Well carbonated.

Overall - My palate is shot, but this is pretty good. I'm not getting any complexity out of it, though.
