10/19/17 bottle. White head. Raspberry, beat color.

The plum flavor is actually noticeable. Very dominate. Sour and tart. Juicy fruit. Lemon citrus and acidity. Solid.

750ml cork and caged bottle. Served in a Casey stemmed glass.

Pours a beautiful dark pink, rose coloured body with a one finger effervescent white head that drops fairly quickly, as seems to be standard head retention for Casey saisons. Not much in way of lacing. Smells of rich red berry jam, stonefruit skin, light musty signature Casey funk, touch of oak. Not complicated, but definitely smells quite nice. It's not a fruit bomb, but rather a balanced fruited saison with a nice acidity to it. Flavour brings out a clean acidity; more of the acetic variety than the lactic variety; musty funk, stonefruit, light red berry flavours (thinking raspberry) and a clean wheat sweetness. It's not superbly complex, but it has a lot of fruit going for it. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side, good carbonation, crisp and dry, drinks like water (obviously with a lot more flavour to it) on a hot summer afternoon. Good stuff, I think I prefer the grape varieties of the CFP so far, but this isn't one to skip over.

Prefaced by saying sours are my thing, plums are not. And yet, this elephant heart plum is the bomb! Casey kills it again with another perfectly carbed, awesomely fruited sour! If you don't have Casey in your life, you must question your life! Flavors are funky with a wonderful tart fruit note, similar to a cherry mixed with a raspberry. Color is pink and beautiful. Get some as soon as you can!
