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.

Bottle during upland share. Light yellow pour with white head, tons of fruit sediment, not even a bottom of the bottle pour. Nice tart fruit, persimmons I presume. Light fruit, mild tart flavors.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, courtesy of a kind soul... shared in a location remote of my dining room.
The beer pours a very hazy sort of peach color with a a small head that fizzes out fairly quickly.
The aroma is acetone, vinegar, lemon, and oak.
The flavor is aggressively sour with loads of tart fruit character, and unfortunately loads of balsamic vinegar character to it as well. As it sits in the glass some lemon rind character becomes a little more evident, but itís hard to get around all that vinegar.
This really doesnít taste like a lambic. Itís not all bad, but man... not my thing at all.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL bottle, pours a cloudy blonde with no head. Aroma is hugely fruity, with loads of bright persimmon Ė wow, this is hugely fruity. Flavour is hugely fruity as well, with loads of persimmon, a touch of funk, and more fruit. Others in this tasting are getting acidity on this, but Iím not really getting it. I love persimmon and I love the way itís used in this lambic. Not a lambic, but this is very nice.

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.
