Vista Brewing Grato
What the brewers say
"Fermented and aged on Italian plums for 18 months in barrels from nearby Bending Branch Winery."
What our panel thought
"Aroma of tart stone fruit, some vanilla, light wood. Lightly sour, but the residual sweetness lingers like a pastry. Woody, earthy, fruity, complex. The wood and plum blend well, but the beer lacks carbonation."
What our editors thought
"Cotton candy-esque nose with light bubblegum defies expectations. The sip is more subdued, thankfully, with richer plum notes defined by a light and bright acidity."
