3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy orange-straw body, aggressive carbonation and a fizzy white head holds on top. Nose is full of persimmon, orange, appricot and light oak. Flavor is similar with added layers of brett providing additional complexity. In the vein of Fou Foune (with out the ripeness and complexity). Medium to light carbonation, sparking, pleasant sour puckering in the finish.

Tasted on 12/26/11 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle. Pours cloudy, extremely pale yellow with a thick white head that leaves an average collar of lace. The nose is sour orange peel and persimmon with light malt, and a white wine vinegar aroma. The flavor is the same, very sour persimmon, a touch of orange peel, light malt, and white wine vinegar. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long tart, sour, orange peel and persimmon finish.

Bottle. After opening there was some gushing but no squirting. Cloudy as fuck. Color is yellow to orange. Aroma is rubber cement and band-aid. Pretty damn gross. Is this what a persimmon smells like? The taste is much better, but still doesnít make this beer that much better. Taste is fruity but I canít quite put my finger on exactly what it is. There is also a strange spice character. There is also a nice acidic bite to this, but there is a bit of rubber cement towards the finish. I enjoy how this one tasted, but the aroma was really atrocious.
