3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Thanks to Brad for sharing this at his tasting on Saturday!
Persimmon Lambic appears a very light straw yellow hue with a substantial head and copious amounts of caked on lacing. Wonderful aromas of sour funk, tart fruits, and lemon zest make this a very inviting beer. The taste is delicious and well balanced, with more tart citrus and lemon zest. The mouthfeel is nice and funky, but a tad over-carbonated. This is a tasty beer I really enjoyed and would love to have again.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy light color. Aroma is fantastic with lots of citrus notes. Taste is nice since the fruit overtakes more than the sour taste. Nice lambic.

Bottle generously shared by barleypops! Slow gushing carbonation, hazy lemon pour and an aroma of very sweet oranges/tangerines. Flavor is also nice strong fresh fruit (more tangerine, citrus) and finished light and effervescent taste/flavor like a mimosa. Just wonderful.

Bottle to oversized snifter. Looks good; light and inviting. Smells nice; this was my first encounter with the fruit persimmon, but it smells good, especially alongside the tartness of a lambic. Tastes solid; light and tart with a pleasant fruit unlike anything Iíve ever come across. Mouthfeel is good too. Overall, a very tasty brew that Iíll definitely seek out again!

Bottle. Pours a cloud golden straw color with very little head. Very, very fruit smelling of kiwi, lemon, and lime. Light mouthfeel with carbonation. Lime and citurs notes fill the mouth with this one. Oddly, i get a coconut like taste as well that works. This would be money on the beach somewhere. Very good. I likey.
