COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The persimmons were provided by Aaron Persinger, a local singer/songwriter who is currently the drummer for Rev. Peytonís Big Damn Band. (The Rev himself is a certified Persimmon lover Iíve been told, canít wait to get him a bottle). Being a classic Indiana fruit, we couldnít resist, maybe one day weíll find enough local mulberries and bring another (as far as we know) first-ever fruit lambic-style to the lineup.

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. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-10-2011

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.

northropfrye (2775) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 22, 2015
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.

ljthiessen (728) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 22, 2015
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.

Lukaduke (2689) - 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.

Iphonephan (4491) - 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.

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.

JBPortland (1183) - 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 Iím not about to drink more than a couple ozís of this to find out. Literally painful to drink. Horrendous.
