4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beautiful bottle from... Have to check my notes. I’ve got a couple of uplands from a couple of sources. Thank you thank you thank you. Expected the explosion from the cork but still wasn’t ready for how quickly it happened. Caught most of it. Nose is tart and sharp fruit and wildness. Must have aroma of persimmon but I’m not sure exactly what persimmon tastes or smells like. Pale yellow that turns to orange in the bottom. Chunks of orange fruit in the bottom of the sniffer. Taste is sharp tart persimmon. Super dry mouth finish. Bottled 3/15/11 batch 71-09

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle generously shared by the lagunitasfan. We were prepared for the explosion of the cork, so we didn’t end up losing much, unlike the strawberry we exploded over my entire house last year. Pours a whitish pear color with not much head. Weird but lovely nose with the fruit coming through nicely and turning solventy and funky and even salty. Very nice nose. Flavors were slightly less forward and funky but that being said, superbly put together and nicely balanced between fruit, sweetness, and sourness...slightly solvent but not as much as the nose let on...and its actually not sweet at all, but enough to get the fruit flavors out. Gloriously fun beer.

750ml bottle thanks to thirdeye11. Batch 22-08.
Hazy golden pour with a good amount of white head. Aroma is fruity and floral - I’ve never smelled a persimmon but I’m guessing this is what they smell like. Slightly tart with some citrus fruit flavor, mostly tangerine.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Ive had this a few times now, I cant believe I haven’t rated it... My first experience with this beer was that of an epic explosion. Major gusher. Lost at least half the beer. That was my bottle from my allotment earlier in 2010 Second Courstesy of the infamous mrSprinkle and the beerprincess hanging out in the sweltering Indiana summer sun pre-gaming for PHiSH @ deer creek. Hazy Gold pour with a fizzy white head. Aroma is lactic, citrus and cereal grains. Flavor is vibrant and refreshing and very citric. Moderately tart on the verge of being sour or some might say lightly sour. I dont know but its good
