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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Pours like cloudy lemonade, almost no head. Aroma is nail polish, burnt rubber, sweet tarts, peach, lemon, bile. Not good. Taste is sour lemon, rotten melon, butter, white vinegar, oak. Pretty lousy stuff, sad to say.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
