Nom de Plum
Belgian-style ale with organic plums
We’re never afraid to capitalize on a little obvious wordplay,
so here’s the latest little beer
from your friendly neighborhood brewers.
Nom de plum came about after a phone call from a friend in the MidWest who occasionally sells us fruit juices and purees for beers like Cerise Cassèe, Kriek du Cambridge, etc.
“Hey,” he says. “Any interest in some organic plum juice?
I just got it in.”
“Cool! Heck yeah,” we reply, followed quickly amongst ourselves by “Ok, what shall we do with it?”
A quick conference amongst the brewstaff and we have
nom de plum.
A blend of pale malts starts us off, combined with our house Belgian yeast strain and a touch of coriander in the kettle, which provides a subtle spiciness to compliment fruity plum flavors
and a lingering fresh tartness.
Hops are at a minimum, and the fresh plum juice lends bright fruit character plus a really cool color to the beer
as showcased in its tulip-style glass.
Highly effervescent, fruity but not sweet
as the fruit is fully fermented,
with a fully dry finish.
