One of two plum beers brewed side by side to emphasise the difference this fruit can have in aroma in flavour. This might seem obvious but fruit varieties are too often overlooked. Plums are abundant in the UK and hugely varied. Crossover chose two plums which share lineage.

Golden ale brewed with malted barley and raw wheat. Spontaneously fermented and aged for 15 months in neutral french oak barrels. The beer was then moved onto frozen purple pershore plums from the 2020 harvest. The fruit was from Styan Family Produce in Worcestershire. The plums were cold soaked in tank for 7 days prior to adding beer for flavour and colour extraction. The beer remained on fruit for 2 months before returning to barrel for further maturation. Components from two other barrels were used in the final blend.

Conditioning: Packaged with a small amount of priming sugar for natural carbonation in the bottle. Crossover do not add yeast at this point, or at any point in the process. Bottles laid to rest on side and conditioned until release.

Ingredients: Malted barley (pilsner), raw wheat, aged hops (whole leaf fuggles, whole lead Saaz & whole leaf strisselspalt), purple pershore plums, water.
