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.

Bottle; Pour is murky light golden, like grapefruit juice, with a modest white head that quickly hazes this glass - Itís not the prettiest brew for sure. Full Disclosure : Iíve never had a persimmon - but thereís a dominant aroma note that must be persimmon : Iím a fan already. Light Candied sugar, citrus zest, persimmon flesh (presumably). This is a standout for me already for the series. The flavor profile is initial heavy sweettart, moving to persimmon sweetness, zesty lemon, with a lingering sour finish on the tongue. Bravo

Generously shared by one of the fine Portland RB folks at a tasting - Pours murky yellow / orange with a white head. The aroma has fleshy persimmons, tartness and a bit of richness. It has a medium / rich body with fairly soft and smooth carbonation. The flavor starts off with rich juiciness, fresh persimmons that are almost fleshy and nice (not overwhelming) sourness. The finish is tart and nice. Struck me more as a sour ale than a lambic, but it was very enjoyable.

Bottle - Big persimmon fruit and some funk. Pale hazy yellow with a frothy head. Juicy then watch out for the tartness. Great fruit, crazy tartness.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with small frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is strong citrus and flower. Thin mouthfeel with strong sour citrus very acidic, sour as hell but good.

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!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
