What the brewers say

“Delicate and refreshing on the palate with peppery and herbal notes and a slight tartness. The dry finish lets the wild plum shine through. Aromatics of pear blossom and pineapple with a hint of oak.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Subtle dark plum fleshy sweetness complements the Brett funk and bready malt. It’s a bit tropical—maybe some passion fruit or pineapple. There’s a light floral touch and some sour notes.”

Flavor: “This is much more sour than it smells—mostly lactic with a touch of acetic. The plum esters add a nice roundness, and the fruity sweetness flows into a tart sourness with a sweet-tart finish. The Brett is kind of hard to find while cutting through the acidity.”

Overall: “The tartness up front is supported by the sweetness of the plum with other fruit notes, but the acidity overwhelms it. It would be better if the plum character to shone through more. This is a slow-sipper for sure.”
