3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of 2 bottles I got in trade / shared with a few family friends. Poured a cloudy yellow. Decent lacing and one finger white head. Nose was lemon, oak, persimmon and cheese. Flavor was packed with persimmon and citrus. Finished with a tart funky cheese note. A good sour flavor throughout, but nothing over the top, A well balanced beer for sure - as even the sister-in-law seemed to like it.

Sehr eigener Fruchtbeginn mit eher geringen Säurenoten. Mild, ausgewogen, interessant – aber zu mild. Nett, süffig, erfrischend. In Ordnung aber wie gesagt, zu mild. 9/9/9/9/11/9

Great fruit smell. Awesome body with nice white head. Tastes very fruity and i would imagine exactly how persimmins would taste. Holy crap this is the truth

Pale wheaty white pour with light creamy white head. Aroma of pineapple, persimmon, paper, and a light fruity. Subtle persimmon, fruity, and some acidic. Watery finish with aggressive carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fruity tartness on the nose hints of strawberry on the nose. Pours golden blonde. Not a very strong flavored fruit so not a lot of fruit flavor. It’s good though. The lactic tartness shines with almost a light citrus flavor.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle dated 15 March 2011, Batch 71.09, shared by badnewsbeers. Pineapple juice appearance- cloudy and dirty yellow with effervescent carbonation and a thin ring of off-white bubbles at the surface. Earthy, spicy, fleshy nose with fruit juice, jam, and some sour funk. Tart, fruity body, tannic with buttery oak and earthy, spicy persimmons. Complex but not terribly funky, a blend of stomach acid and light sweetness. An interesting idea that really features the peculiarities of the persimmon.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours perfect lenond cloudy with a nice white head. The aroma, the best part, is pure fruity fresh persimmon tangerine, so pleasant in the nose. Tastes like a light fruity citrus sour with smooth sour notes blended well with the fruits on a perfectly smooth body. Carbonation is right on the money as well.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very light yellow hazy liquid, violent inside with a creamy white head. The nose is sweeter than the peach with some mineral notes up front. Lots of fruity aromas, peaches, mango, light touch of sour in the nose. There is a tang on the fruits which I am told is the persimmon (never had one). The taste is balanced and subtl, lightly sweet, hints of tang with a faint mineral brett note. There is some spice in the back and a nice level of sourness, not overpowering but adds depth and is balanced wel. The feel is creamy, lively carbonation, rather dry, light crispness in the finish.

Bottle shared by, "hannont". Colour... straw with a kind of greenish tint and no head. Nose... quince, pear skin and green persimmons. Palate... now there’s a dandy shot of persimmons up front! Tight, tart and delightful interplay of lemon drops, crushed persimmons, macerated kumquat skin and balancing act finish that’s both dry tart and lightly sweet with a trailing hint of flavour reminiscent of vinho verde.
