2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2014 Slightly dull dark tan, has some sweetness up front, light fruit late. Just the faintest hint of tartness. I guess I don’t understand what I’m drinking, not being familiar with persimmon.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark golden color with a ginormous white head on it. Nose is a little sour, with the unmistakably earthy notes of the brett. Taste is only moderately sour, and decidedly fruity, with an almost brandy-like finish. Not a bad beer.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
hazy tangerine, puffy large bubbled white head dies quick. Meaty peach and heavy sawdust nose, reminiscent of rust, celery, and a lumber aisle with sourness interspersed but no part of the profile. Heavy pie crust and alcohol front, tons of effervescent sweetness with light grape sourness emerging mid amidst dough and papery bitterness that continues until the muted, coin metallic finish. Too effervescent, carbonation dominating most aspects and almost no sour through the disappointing end.
