4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Not sure who shared this bottle, but a big thanks. 750 ml bottle served in a Deschutes snifter. Bottle was a slight gusher.
A: Pours an extrememly cloudy yellow, very chilled haze, a white frothy head that leaves some swirls once it subsides.
S: Lots of fruits going on. Iím getting whiffs of mandarin oranges, a slight star fruit, a little pineapple. I guess this is what persimmon smells like? Either way itís very enjoyable.
T: Very nice tartness with a nice sweet orange and pineapple sweetness. It really tasted good and Iím a big fan of this persimmon fruit. Little oakiness in there as well.
M: Light to medium bodied with a nice sugary coating quality to it. Nice spritz of carbonation with a slight drying finish.
O: The persimmon fruit was very delicious and seemed to take on qualities of many differnt fruits. Not overly sweet and was very drinkable.

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.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle; Pour is murky light golden, like grapefruit juice, with a modest white head that quickly hazes this glass - Itís not the prettiest brew for sure. Full Disclosure : Iíve never had a persimmon - but thereís a dominant aroma note that must be persimmon : Iím a fan already. Light Candied sugar, citrus zest, persimmon flesh (presumably). This is a standout for me already for the series. The flavor profile is initial heavy sweettart, moving to persimmon sweetness, zesty lemon, with a lingering sour finish on the tongue. Bravo

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Generously shared by one of the fine Portland RB folks at a tasting - Pours murky yellow / orange with a white head. The aroma has fleshy persimmons, tartness and a bit of richness. It has a medium / rich body with fairly soft and smooth carbonation. The flavor starts off with rich juiciness, fresh persimmons that are almost fleshy and nice (not overwhelming) sourness. The finish is tart and nice. Struck me more as a sour ale than a lambic, but it was very enjoyable.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with small frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is strong citrus and flower. Thin mouthfeel with strong sour citrus very acidic, sour as hell but good.
