The persimmons were provided by Aaron Persinger, a local singer/songwriter who is currently the drummer for Rev. Peyton’s Big Damn Band. (The Rev himself is a certified Persimmon lover I’ve been told, can’t wait to get him a bottle). Being a classic Indiana fruit, we couldn’t resist, maybe one day we’ll find enough local mulberries and bring another (as far as we know) first-ever fruit lambic-style to the lineup.

Pours a murky off white with little flakes of fruit floating around. Has a nice aroma and a little less funky than some of Upland's other sours. Crisp and refreshing. A favorite! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2014 Bottle @ Avery Sour Fest 2014. Pour is murky yellow with a small white head and good lacing. Funky, lactic, guava, vanilla, stone fruit, and hibiscus aroma. Taste is salty, lemony, yogurt, lime, basil, super lactic and hugely sour. Light body with low carbonation. Way too acetic and kind-of a disappointment.

adnielsen (9013) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle @ Avery Sour Fest 2014. Pours a milky yellow appearance with little head. Heavy passion fruit, guava, lemon, and other tropical fruits in the nose. The flavor was heavily acetic, extremely puckering and sour. Some funk but the beer so damn sour that it was hard to get other notes. The first beer I grabbed at the festival and possibly the first beer to run out, but it was a significant disappointment to me.

wchesser (1151) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 9, 2014
At Avery Sour Fest ’14. Cloudy light orange straw. Nose of stone fruit, guava, light funk. Taste is very sour from the persimmon. Extremely puckering, persimmon flavor is clear, but just too tart for much more than a taster.

Dogbrick (7959) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Sample during the Secret Barrel Society tour on 05/24/2014: Hazy bright peach color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Fruity and floral aroma. Light to medium body with flavors of citrus, yeast and oak. The finish is mildly funky with a fruity yeast aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

Bottle @ Indy Sour Fest. Tart lactic and funky musty lemony aroma. Cloudy yellow with a small white head. Sour lactic lemon and funky musty basement flavor, with just a touch of balancing sweetness. Light body, lively carbonation.

Bottle. Sour milk, persimmon, and malt aroma. Hazy pale yellow with small head. Light persimmon and sour-tart malt aroma. Nicely blended. Works well.

DrSilverworm (6302) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Taste from a 750ml bottle at brew3crew’s house-warming party. Hazy pale yellow color. No head. Couple bits of lace. Great bigger sour taste, very light sweet. Medium to bigger body. Very smooth, very light carbonation. Good dry finish. Not very familiar with persimmon fruit, but I love the pear type, white grape and oak aromas. Hint of spice. Fantastic fruit sour.
