3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Taste from a 750ml bottle at brew3crewís 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.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, 2011 vintage. Aroma is dominated by overripe citrus fruits: orange, tangerine and persimmon I suppose, though I couldnít say for sure since Iíve never eaten one. Nice sour aroma as well with some sweet grains, dusty brett, earth and oak. The beer pours hazy pale yellow with a tiny ring of bubbles before settling out. Taste is tart up front with sweet candied orange, tangerine, pineapple, pear, musty, oaky and sour. Body is a little thin with high carbonation that kind of ceases of the flavor. After taste is sweet orange peel, pear, oak. Overall a super citrusy sour beer and the first Upland beer Iíve tasted with a real sweet factor. The body is thinner than the others and not as juicy, but the flavor is surprisingly fresh.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 split 2-ways with the GF in some stemware at 45F - 2011 bottle
A - Poured a big head that faded like seltzer. Very fizzy. Appearance very persimmon like with a clear golden orange.
S - Smells like a tart acidic grape juice with notes of honey and caramel.
T - Very grapey. Tannic, grape skins with this interesting sweet acidity that reminds me of sparkling grape juice. Very sweet
M - sweet up front and dry through out.
O - I liked this a lot. I found the tartness to me tongue numbing and the sweetness to be too close to grape juice.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a bright yellow with a gigantic head that settles fairly quickly. I think after settling my glass was only 1/4 full.
Smells of persimmons with some lemon, pepper and a lot of funk going on.
Taste is very tart upfront. Much more so than I was expecting, but it wasnít bad. Rounds out into some lemony/persimmon flavor with a touch of funk at the end.
Bubbly, but not a gusher for me. Good carbonation. Good light lambic.
Been waiting to try this one for a while as I had a friend who made persimmon wine back home. Good flavor and nothing is terribly overpowering. Very good job by my local brewer.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL. Pours a clear straw, medium larger white head fizzes out very quickly. Nose is apple oxidized, cider, really just not what it is supposed to be. Taste though is bright, sharp, very sour with long lemon acid, super citric. Dry finish. Seltzer body. Leathery, aggressive mouthfeel.
