Year of New Beer:Living Proof: Plum Wild, Country Boy Brewing (Lexington)
Written By: Dion on 06/04/2018
Brewed in collaboration with Black Narrows Brewing (VA), this is yet another excellent extension of the Living Proof series. The nose is filled with tart fruit, as apple, lemon, and blackberry are layered over a bready wheat note. On the tongue, the fruits seem to walk a very fine line between sweet and sour. Juicy plum softens and sweetens the sharper aspects of the base beer. Granny Smith apples, lemon, and blackberries again provide a sour punch against the funkiness of the yeast. Mellows out with darker fruit notes on the finish. This is very well done, and is easily one of my top few Living Proof beers.
