3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Batch 71-09 shared by nuplastikk...thanks Greg! - Pours hazy pale yellow with next to no carbonation. Nose is wow...I realize I donít know what a persimmon smells like. Kind of musty and muted tropical fruit with a bit of sourness. Taste is really sour...lots of vinegar tartness with the same fruit and some rotting qualities. Biting carbonation and thinnish body.

Soured yeast and citrus concentrate to form the intense aroma. Highly citric as the acetic acid pummels away at my mouth's precious organic tissues. Big blast of persimmons amidst the sourness. An excellent (and distinctly American-style) fruit sour.

750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy dull golden peach color with a small soapy white head. The aroma has funk, sweet fruity notes (I imagine it is the persimmon but it is not specific), floral, herbal and acidic. The flavor is sweet, tart, fruity, acidic and dry. There is a nice bite to the finish.

Beer shared at our pre thanksgiving whale tasting. Poured a hazy straw color. Smell of dry sour fruit. Never had a persimmon so really canít make reference. Taste was dry citrus and sour funk. Not as sour as the other variants but still delicious. Iím a bit let down as this beer got such rave reviews but I would go for the raspberry if given the option

Pours gold with no head. Aroma of citrus, mostly orange and lemon. Tastes tart and citrusy, my favorite of the upland lambics.

The persimmon is a bland fruit popular in ohio and indiana. Thia beer smells like stale wort and infected mead. Flavor is light. Slight tartness and sourneaa.

Not sure who shared this bottle, but a big thanks. 750 ml bottle served in a Deschutes snifter. Bottle was a slight gusher.
A: Pours an extrememly cloudy yellow, very chilled haze, a white frothy head that leaves some swirls once it subsides.
S: Lots of fruits going on. Iím getting whiffs of mandarin oranges, a slight star fruit, a little pineapple. I guess this is what persimmon smells like? Either way itís very enjoyable.
T: Very nice tartness with a nice sweet orange and pineapple sweetness. It really tasted good and Iím a big fan of this persimmon fruit. Little oakiness in there as well.
M: Light to medium bodied with a nice sugary coating quality to it. Nice spritz of carbonation with a slight drying finish.
O: The persimmon fruit was very delicious and seemed to take on qualities of many differnt fruits. Not overly sweet and was very drinkable.

September 30, 2011 with blankboy, garthicus, gregclow, jerc and mabel. SO stoked to try this - I love sours, I have loved all Uplands to date, and persimmon is a damned sour fruit. 750 bottle c/o J&K. Nearly murky pale yellow with an average diminishing fizzy white head. Interesting aroma - a bit of latex paint - oddly sharp and sweet, thereís lemon/wool funk and sourness here, but itís quite muted and in the background in the aroma (7-). The taste, however..... so nice - lemon, pungently floral/bitter, some alcohol - but itís mostly puckering persimmon sourness - almost a 9. Average body, very acidic, decent carbonation with a long dry sour pungent finish - darned good, but the weakest of the 4 I have tried from Upland.

750 ml bottle poured a cloudy gold with a lingering ring of white foam. Aromas of straw, persimmon, citrus and light barnyard funk. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry tart finish. Flavors of straw, persimmon, citrus and light barnyard funk with a crisp dry tar lingering persimmon fionish.

August 5, 2012 bottle shared by Brett at his tasting event. Yellow pour with huge head and some sediment. Tropical fruit and sour aroma with a bit of wood. Taste was consistent with a dry finish. Nicely balanced and good intro lambic.
