COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The persimmons were provided by Aaron Persinger, a local singer/songwriter who is currently the drummer for Rev. Peytons Big Damn Band. (The Rev himself is a certified Persimmon lover Ive been told, cant wait to get him a bottle). Being a classic Indiana fruit, we couldnt resist, maybe one day well find enough local mulberries and bring another (as far as we know) first-ever fruit lambic-style to the lineup.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 4, 2012
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.

northropfrye (2460) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 22, 2015
This was fantastic. Puckeringly sour. Intense with a touch of like a kiwi fruit sweetness to balance it if ever so slighty. Fabulously sour. Thanks cards04 for the sample.

ljthiessen (621) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle, thanks cards04. Pale cloudy yellow, like lemon juice. Aroma is sour lemon with a touch of banana and pineapple. Flavour is very sour and fairly salty, lots of lemon and again hints of banana and pineapple. Sweeter as it warms. Too salty but quite flavourful.

DrewFace (942) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle. Lots of persimmon aroma, very fruity - fruit juice, light acidic notes. Big tartness and acidity, lots of apple like juice flavor, persimmon, finishes dry from all the tartness and acidity. Not quite as sour as other uplands so a little more balanced.

Bottle. Hay-colored and cloudy, with one finger of pure white foam. Nose is intensely funky and floral, with hay, lemon pith, dried flower petals, lavender, persimmon. The flavor melds citrusy persimmon with floral honey, almond, wheat and hay. Striking acidity, good balance. Very nice.
