Persimmon flavors bring out some tasty notes, heavy malt backbone, warming alcohol is a good thing

2012-2013 versus 2014-2015 side by side at Catch 22 bottle share. Pours a hazy golden orange with bubbly off-white head that leaves light lace. Aroma and taste of light fruity notes, big malty sweetness, and a hint of spicy esters. Booze is well hidden, otherwise a but unexciting. The older one just tasted more oxidized.

Pours a golden amber color with minimal fizzy head. Aromas of sweet malt and light fruit. Flavors of caramel malts, maybe a touch of fruit and some alcohol heat.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a murky reddish copper color, with a thick beige head with spotty lacing. Aroma is grain and caramel malt, some plum, a hint of apricots and the persimmon. Taste is medium bodied, soft carbonation with flavors of light fruit, mult grain and caramel malts, some mild spice and a touch of candied cherries. Finish has a caramel malt, dark fruit and low bitterness. Alcohol is well hidden. Very nice well rounded brew. Likely the best thing Fullsteam has done to date!!

I guess it is somewhat tangy, like an blood orange. Really would need to try again if possible.

On tap at the brewery. Caramel coloring with a very big malty flavor and alcohol in the finish. Maybe the best thing I’ve had at Fullsteam.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a nice amber color with thin light tan head and thin collar. Aroma is a light caramel, some fruity-tangy-berry-like notes. Now I think I know what persimmons smell and taste like. Really digging the fruity taste in this beer. Great medium body and carbonation lend to a great beer experience.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Unique, earthy aroma with some hints of spices and fruit. Pours an opaque medium brown with thin, fine head. Medium/light body, lively mouthfeel. Nice earthy/apricot flavor and smooth finish (hint of licorice-like flavor in finish), with a alcohol warming sensation. Nice to have a winter seasonal that is lighter bodied and easy to drink.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Coppery orange-amber pour. Nose is a fruity mix of plum, raspberry, and citrus meat with sweet caramel. Flavor follows suit with more plum, orange, raspberry and yeasty spice. Somewhat sweet, but enticing. Lingering fruit mix.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle I picked up at a artisans market at Union Market in DC. Pours a clear amber with some thin, eggshell head. Nose is interesting, some muddled dark fruit, plum, malt, some orange peel but then a lot of tomato and a little celery seed. Flavor is the same, some mild sweetness, some tart tomato, herbal, oddly savory too. Slightly sticky finish. Very strange.
