COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Gerbeer (1724) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 7, 2013
650 ml bottle. Pours a light clear amber with medium head. Aromas of oranges, light brett, and old socks. Flavors of honey, butter, wood, and a little vanilla. Canít say itís sour at all... OK

podey (637) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 2, 2013
22oz bottle from Whole Foods Bowery NYC. Pours slightly hazy brilliant gold with lots of carbonation. Aromas of fruit and funkiness. Taste of fruit (canít pinpoint the persimmon exactly) and not that sour, actually pretty mild. Very drinkable with a slight bit of funk; really enjoyed this one. Another great offering from Elysian.

TheRealMGD (551) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - JAN 28, 2013
Bomber from WB. Clear gold pour with a short white head fading to thin and leaving a fine, even lacing. Nose is tart fruit and some saison-like funk. Medium-light body with vigorous, fine carbonation. Ripe apricot, sweet apple, pear, black pepper and some earthy funk. Tartness is mild (less so than the bomber I had the month it came out), almost more of a fruity Saison than a Sour/Wild.. An accessible sour with a mild Brett character. Would be interesting to try this one again in 6-8 months. One of my favs in the Apocalypse series.

jeremytoni (2980) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - JAN 27, 2013
From the tap poured an amber color with a good amount of head. Light malty hoppy flavor with a light sour finish.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 25, 2013
A nice, tight, dry and funky nose. Plenty of persimmon flesh flavour with all the sugar taken out. Dry and funky all the way through. Some graham cracker sweetness too. Really good. Estery fruit. Iím pretty impressed by this offering and the partnership of the yeast with this interesting fruit.

bhensonb (10908) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Bomber from Lets Pour. Pours clear orange gold with a fizzy transient white head. Aroma is faint sour fruit. Med body. Flavor is bready, with a slight earthiness suggesting brett, and some sort of fruit. Obviously persimmon, but I wouldnít know that on my own. Itís tart/sour, but not strongly so. Finishes that way.

PapaSkeetSkeet (808) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Bright, gold, little-to-no head. Aroma is clean, fruity grain with very small sourness that had me briefly confused with hops and ginger. Flavor confirmed sourness, especially as it warmed, but it was incredibly mild for a beer fermented entirely with Brett. The persimmons were not immediately apparent either, and I still canít point out exactly which components of the beer were affected by it, but I wouldnít be surprised if it was a positive impact given the subtle complexity of this beer. Light bodied, low carbonation.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 8, 2013
Draught at Elizabeth Station, Bellingham, WA, listed at 6% ABV
Cloudy amber color, small creamy head. The aroma is mild, a bit fruity, sour, earthy (soil). Smooth mouthfeel, some malt flavor, the sourness is just hinted, very light Bretts, and a delicate fruitiness and sweetness, probably from the persimmon. Low bitterness.
Pleasant and easy for many palates.
