5 ounce sample at Rubicon in Sacramento. Light, faint, sweet aroma with mild banana esters. Not too much else present in this pedestrian nose. Murky, muddy hazy pale golden body with a small, weak, white head, Starts sweet and kind of fruity. Almost apple-like...acetaldehyde? Lightly medicinal. This is followed by some band-aid and burnt rubber. Light fruity sweet esters late. Not a good experiment.

Tap at Rubicon fur beer week. I don’t know what a persimmon tastes like, but this beer is fruity. Along the line of a saison. Good.
