Had this gem inbetween my second & third Younger. Super funky, super tart, super clean, super crisp, nice & dry, and super refreshing. The pluots used were a very nice compliment to the base beer. Temptation I believe. This almost stole the show for me. Much better than I remember it being two years or so ago.

Orange in color, lighter shade, solid white head on it, 1/3". Aroma hit those unique plout feels, best of both worlds. Good brett character. Very solid aroma.

Taste hit those sour but not overly acidic stride, clean, clings in the mouthfeel, brett really well done here. Light bodied but full on taste. Plenty of sourness, brett, oak, fruity goodness on this one.
