Bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a dissipating white head. Full bodied with a semi soft, fine carbonations. Aroma of persimmon and mead. Flavor of persimmon and honey with a moderate, not over the top sourness. Some alcohol detected on the finish. Unique, but not as sour as the Kreik or Kiwi.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, courtesy of a kind soul... shared in a location remote of my dining room.
The beer pours a very hazy sort of peach color with a a small head that fizzes out fairly quickly.
The aroma is acetone, vinegar, lemon, and oak.
The flavor is aggressively sour with loads of tart fruit character, and unfortunately loads of balsamic vinegar character to it as well. As it sits in the glass some lemon rind character becomes a little more evident, but itís hard to get around all that vinegar.
This really doesnít taste like a lambic. Itís not all bad, but man... not my thing at all.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL bottle, pours a cloudy blonde with no head. Aroma is hugely fruity, with loads of bright persimmon Ė wow, this is hugely fruity. Flavour is hugely fruity as well, with loads of persimmon, a touch of funk, and more fruit. Others in this tasting are getting acidity on this, but Iím not really getting it. I love persimmon and I love the way itís used in this lambic. Not a lambic, but this is very nice.

Hazy yellow with a small white head.
I get a little burnt plastic aroma under the persimmon...but not enough to be off- putting.

Bottle shared thanks to charule. What is up with these guys being so darn sour all the time. Aroma is like citric acid and persimmons. Super sour taste hides all flavors. Taste like a sour warhead. Too much, Upland, too much.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of sourness / funkiness, pale malts, light persimmon (maybe? I donít know this fruit), light oak, and hints of spices. Flavor the same with a nice sourness and fruitiness. Average texture. A very good beer.
