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, there’s lemon/wool funk and sourness here, but it’s quite muted and in the background in the aroma (7-). The taste, however..... so nice - lemon, pungently floral/bitter, some alcohol - but it’s 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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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 doesn’t make this beer that much better. Taste is fruity but I can’t 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.
