The persimmons were provided by Aaron Persinger, a local singer/songwriter who is currently the drummer for Rev. Peytonís Big Damn Band. (The Rev himself is a certified Persimmon lover Iíve been told, canít wait to get him a bottle). Being a classic Indiana fruit, we couldnít resist, maybe one day weíll find enough local mulberries and bring another (as far as we know) first-ever fruit lambic-style to the lineup.

Bottle sample. Poured hazy yellow color with an average frothy white head that lasted with very good lacing. Good tart & sour aroma. Medium to abundant body with tingly texture and soft carbonation. Moderate sour fruit flavor with a solid fruit and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration.

Bottle during upland share. Light yellow pour with white head, tons of fruit sediment, not even a bottom of the bottle pour. Nice tart fruit, persimmons I presume. Light fruit, mild tart flavors.

Bottle, courtesy of a kind soul... shared in a location remote of my dining room.
The beer pours a very hazy sort of peach color with a a small head that fizzes out fairly quickly.

The aroma is acetone, vinegar, lemon, and oak.

The flavor is aggressively sour with loads of tart fruit character, and unfortunately loads of balsamic vinegar character to it as well. As it sits in the glass some lemon rind character becomes a little more evident, but itís hard to get around all that vinegar.
This really doesnít taste like a lambic. Itís not all bad, but man... not my thing at all.

750mL bottle, pours a cloudy blonde with no head. Aroma is hugely fruity, with loads of bright persimmon Ė wow, this is hugely fruity. Flavour is hugely fruity as well, with loads of persimmon, a touch of funk, and more fruit. Others in this tasting are getting acidity on this, but Iím not really getting it. I love persimmon and I love the way itís used in this lambic. Not a lambic, but this is very nice.

Bottle: Hazy yellow with a small white head. I get a little burnt plastic aroma under the persimmon...but not enough to be off- putting. Vinegar/persimmon/lemon taste. Very tart.

Bottle shared thanks to charule. What is up with these guys being so darn sour all the time. Aroma is like citric acid and persimmons. Super sour taste hides all flavors. Taste like a sour warhead. Too much, Upland, too much.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of sourness / funkiness, pale malts, light persimmon (maybe? I donít know this fruit), light oak, and hints of spices. Flavor the same with a nice sourness and fruitiness. Average texture. A very good beer.
