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.

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.

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 wasn’t 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.

Bottle courtesy of GT2, thanks! Clear pale yellow color, fluffy white head, solid lacing. Aroma of medicinal lemon. Taste is summer fruit, sour pomegranate. Hi carbonation. One of the best persimmon lambics I’ve had.

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.

750ml bottle at a tasting with JulienHuxley, Minderbinder, HoppyPocket and Tom10101. Bottle thanks to either one of those fine gents.
Appearance : Slightly hazy pale yellow with small head. short head retention.
Aroma : Fruity with acidic notes.
Taste : Acidic and vinegary with light fruits. Finish is slightly acidic and slightly acetic with light fruits. More fruits on nose than taste.
Overall : All in all an ok beer but nothing really special. Fruits are pretty subtle and acetic and acidic notes dominate the profile.

Gusher. Sort-of. Aroma was big persimmon, light funk, lemon. Flavor is more persimmon heavy with a semi-sweet funky note. Light oakiness, not overly carbonated. Very nice.

750ml shared by OmegaX
Appearance - Bright hazy yellow, thin frothy head
Aroma - Yeast rolls, squash, nectarine, vanilla, oak
Taste - Yeast, tropical fruits, oak, taffy?

This was a superb lambic, not really complex but so much flavor makes it a real treat. Not overly-sour either, this one is sure to please all.

Minderbinder (2693) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 5, 2013
Bottle 750ml. Pours hazy blond/white with low white head. Some lacing. Aroma is of citrus, flowers, fruits, lime. Taste is of fruits, sourness, acid. Palate: Ligth-medium body. Overall: Good, fruity, but mainly acid/sour. Still nice to have to google a fruit, so at least I learned something.

Bottle shared by Tommy, thanks a lot! Pour is hazy golden with minimal white head and bery light lacing. Aroma is not bad but not that great, a bit fruity, sourness, some strange aromas too. Taste is fruity, wine notes, oak, funk, less acetic than kiwi. Low body and soft carbonation. Really not sure about this one.
