COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The persimmons were provided by Aaron Persinger, a local singer/songwriter who is currently the drummer for Rev. Peyton’s Big Damn Band. (The Rev himself is a certified Persimmon lover I’ve been told, can’t wait to get him a bottle). Being a classic Indiana fruit, we couldn’t resist, maybe one day we’ll find enough local mulberries and bring another (as far as we know) first-ever fruit lambic-style to the lineup.

Bottle @ fonefan tasting. Medium head with short duration. Color is pale yellow. Aroma and taste are brett, citrus, sweet perfume, earthy and cloudberries. Odd beer, but quite lovely.

Doodler (313) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 25, 2012
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.

Koelschtrinker (11063) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JAN 23, 2012
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

decaturstevo (5215) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JAN 17, 2012
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.

3/15/11 bottle. cloudy, yellowish pour with minimal head and extreme carbonation. funky smell with persimmon and star fruit, mildly sweet and tart. flavor is huge in the same fruit, overripe here, with some lemon zest and other citrus notes. dry and crisp

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 29, 2011
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.

Silphium (3179) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 7, 2011
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.

Damico (2693) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2011
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.

cpetrone84 (1542) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2011
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.
