New Belgium "Pluot" (Lips of Faith Series)
New Belgium Brewing Company - Fort Collins, Colorado USA
Belgian Wild Ale (ABV 10%) (IBU 5)

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

Rating: 2.8/5.0

Aroma: 5/10
Appearance: 2/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 12/20

The pour was a clear pale orange with a small (less than 1 finger) white fizzy head that diminished in a matter of seconds, leaving nothing behind and having no lacing to speak of.

The aroma was very mild of pale grain malt and a mild Brett yeast with hints of green apple, banana, plum, pineapple, a light vinous scent and a touch of spice.

The taste was sweet and fruity throughout, progressing slightly with a moderate yeast presence, a mild tartness and a hint of alcohol at the end. The flavor lasted only a short while after the swallow, being somewhat sweet, fruity and lightly tart.

Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a very soft carbonation.

Overall I was expecting bit more from this brew, although the taste was pleasant it seemed to be a watered down version of a Wild Belgian Ale...
