Mortis will enwrap you in autumn coils of tartness and decay, with ripe Fuyu persimmons bringing the slightest blush to a pale ale fermented entirely with brettanomyces bruxellensis. German and Northwest wheat, pale and acidulated barley malt and a touch of C-45 Crystal combine with Fuggles hops to wrap things up dry, tight and tart, refreshing and satisfying. Mortis has set in just in time for Thanksgiving.

Not nearly as sour as I thought it was going to be, but still pretty tasty all the same. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz bottle during the entire vertical pours out a hazy golden topped with a small fizzy head. Nose is some citrus sour notes along with lots of the persimmon. Taste is more of the persimmon some light citrus tart and a belg yeast.

Tap at Maxs. $3.50 a pint, had to bite. Rich and sweet, with a definite persimmon flavor. A little sugary. Not unlike a pumpkin beer in richness,but with persimmon.

Dogbrick (11605) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 4, 2015
Sample at the Super Bowl Viewing and Beer tasting on 02/01/2015. Pouors a hazy dark golden color with a thick white head that burns away gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruity hops, malt and slight brett. Medium body with flavors of vine fruit, brett yeast, florals and malt. The finish is mildly sour with a fruity aftertaste. Decent overall.

22 oz bottle pour split. #11 in the series and listed at 6% abv. Pours a cloudy golden yellow color with a fizzy head. Slightly sour citrus and light banana like aroma. Flavor is easy drinking, with light hops, and a yogurt like yeast flavor. Cool finish with brett yeast and mild hops. Interesting take on the style. A lot like a pale ale with a slight sour side to it. I enjoyed this.

From a bottle this pour is a golden color with a white bubble head.A lot of c02, tart and does have a persimmon taste.I opened this beer thinking it was going to be plain and it’s not.I find this beer to be good as well I have been eating a lot of persimmons lately which helps it.

Draft at St. Augustine. Copper color thin head. Huge dried persimmon aroma. Soft silky palate, big bitterness and astringency fm huge persimmon, big tannins reminiscent of tea. Brett is just starting to kick in, but leaves its imprint by being bone dry. Is more bitter than sour. Would be curious to try this at different stages of its age and development. I totally understand this beer. It invokes the spirit of the persimmon, it’s not something you would want to drink regularly, just like you would not want to eat persimmon regularly.
