First had: on tap at DFH, Rehoboth Beach, DE

"100% Brettanomcyes fermented Saison brewed with local Delmarva Beach Plumbs and Napa Valley Verjous Rouge."

Poured a distinct magenta color, dull and hazy, with a small pink-white head that receded to a ringlet; minimal lacing. Aroma of sweet, overripe fruits, cider, spicy brett notes. Interesting taste, as I don't believe I've ever had plumbs (beach plums) before--though I had two beers made with them on this day at DFH. Reflecting the nose, there were flavors of overripe fruit, somewhat sweet, with a touch of tartness, wet grass, apple cider, strawberry, red grape skins. For a 100% Brett beer, I thought the yeastiness was pretty down-played...either that or it was overpowered by the fruit, though I didn't find the beer overwhelmingly fruity either. Light-medium body, nothing offensive going on. A good brew overall.
