3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (750 ml). Thanks to pantanap for this one! Hazy yellow/peach color with a low white head and little to no lacing. The first whiff was so acetic, it burned my nostrils. After that, thereís citrus, peaches, strong acetic presence and light sweetness. Taste is heavily sour with citrus, acetic notes, peaches and light sweetness. Medium body. Bone dry. Not extremely complex and so acetic that itís hard to drink. Still, it was good and fun to try because there isnít a lot of Persimmon beer available and because an average Sour is still better than almost any other average style beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by some random people in VT, thanks this was on my radar for a year or so. Pours slightly clearish yellow gold with small to medium white head. Big notes of sugary and tart persimmon, acidic fruits, berries, champagne yeast, and light barn funk. Lots of carbonation, light to med in body. Liked this better then the kiwi lambic.

Bottle generously shared by the Tampa Crew. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is some citrus, some chalky persimmons, some vinegar, some tartness, and some orange and funky fruit. Flavor is similar with citrus, some vinegar, some funk, some sour fruit, and some persimmons. Nice sour with a fair amount going on.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared at a local tasting, thanks Greg! Pours a clear yellow with a thin head, the aroma has a huge funky front end with all kinds of sour notes coming, the flavor is puckering sour, slight fruit in the finish mixed in with a little bit of sweetness in the finish though, kind of different but not bad.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle. Pale yellow body, looks filtered. Mega sour aroma, funky urinal barnyard. Bready fruit flavor, with some massive tart sourness. Island funked out fruit, but steady lime-lemon flavor the whole way. Big sour tones, huge lactic action.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
