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. 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.

750. Not sure the vintage but at least a couple years old. Pours a cloudy pale gold with no head or lace. Soft clear tree fruit nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Clear balanced tree fruit mid palate with nice dry edges and no bite. Dances. Beauty. Age has been kind.

Bacterial (2281) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - AUG 10, 2015
Pour at the Great Taste of the Midwest. Hazy light yellow pour - spicy taste with a nice funk and light sourness. Interesting and fun.

Not what I was hoping... Too much warhead... No persimmon... Lactic bomb... Almost undrinkable

7 Aug 2015, bottle. pale yellow/white, and hazy. nose is funky, cobwebs. can’t say i would even know what a persimmon smells or tastes like, but this has fruit peel tartness. Thin body and moderately fizzy. very dry, tart, white citrus fruit tartness. very nice!

Iphonephan (4616) - McLean, Virginia, USA - JUL 19, 2015
From a bottle at the Wicked Weed Funk Asheville Fest 2015. Pours a hazy pale gold with an off white head. Fruity nose. Intensely sour finish.

juiceisloose (1117) - Windermere, Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2015
From old tasting notes. 750 ml bottle. This one pours a lightly hazy peach color and crowned by a small head of white foam that slowly settles to a thin film. The aroma shows notes of persimmon and light stone fruit along with some barnyard funk and sourness. The flavor follows with more of the stone fruit and persimmon to go with some lactic sourness and a touch of bitterness on the back end. Medium bodied with balanced carbonation that leads to a fruit forward finish. Pretty good stuff. I would like to try a more recent batch as this one of the first batches released.

Lukaduke (2710) - Gray, Maine, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Pours a flat hazy orange golden color with no head. Nose is acetic with glimpses of tropical guava and citrus. Palate is pure vinegar with absolutely no redeeming qualities. throat burning, bile and vile.

JBPortland (1205) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 22, 2015
750ml bottle pours cloudy dull neon orange with zero carbonation. Nose is sharp acidity, a hint of funk, vinegar. Taste is 100% acid. Burns the mouth and throat. Vinegar. Maybe a hint of orange candy and tropical citrus on the finish but I’m not about to drink more than a couple oz’s of this to find out. Literally painful to drink. Horrendous.
