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.

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

Pours a murky off white with little flakes of fruit floating around. Has a nice aroma and a little less funky than some of Upland's other sours. Crisp and refreshing. A favorite! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Just pretty much perfect. Had this at one of the single greatest tasting parties I’ve ever attended and it blew me away. This was my first Uplands lambic and my God was it ever an experience!

LCBS 2010. Wow I loved this one. Golden pour, white head. I love persimmons and this one fit the bill. Aroma of persimmon, yeast, light champagne vinegar. Best flavor of any Upland I have had yet. Persimmon, nice sour notes, some sweetness. Juicy finish. Wonderful beer.

Sample at a tasting at Suttree’s. Pours hazy yellow (reminds me of the color of witbier) with big quick white head. The aroma is definite persimmon, some tropical deal, musty notes, and a subdued sourness; this smells so good it’s all I can do to get my nose out of it and taste it. The flavor is subtle persimmon, pear, tropical fruit, and a nice cellar funk. The finish is dry and musty. A lovely mellow sourness holds it together throughout. This lambic is brilliantly delicate: neither the sourness nor the fruit dominate, but coexist in a nice balance. And I really like persimmons to begin with. Their use in this beer is outstanding. This is some amazing stuff.

750ml bottle. Pours a cloudy orange color with some bits of persimmon floating around. Aroma is funky, sour, and fruity. Taste is sour and a little sweet. This is a fantastic lambic. Just great.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 28, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2011 Cloudy yellow, not much head. Smells like pear, pineapple, lemon - persimmon, I suppose. Crisp and light and insanely refreshing and quenching. Nicely musty, with dusty, stoney notes, as well. Some hints of apple cider vinegar, plus kiwi. Man, this was good. Just an outstanding brew. Bottled on 3/15/11, batch 21.09

DalzAle (1944) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Bottle generously shared by barleypops! Slow gushing carbonation, hazy lemon pour and an aroma of very sweet oranges/tangerines. Flavor is also nice strong fresh fruit (more tangerine, citrus) and finished light and effervescent taste/flavor like a mimosa. Just wonderful.

Damico (2452) - 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.

Bottle shared with Linh, vi, ken, mommy & daddy Vuong. Pours a bright hazy orange body with sparkling carbonation and white fizzy lacing. Aroma is spicy persimmon, apricot, oak, Brett, peaches, and a hint of banana. Mouthfeel is ultra tart and mouth puckering, with notes of peach, lemon tart, sour fruit, wood, light persimmon and peach. Great sour ale.
