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.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2012
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, 2011 vintage. Aroma is dominated by overripe citrus fruits: orange, tangerine and persimmon I suppose, though I couldnít say for sure since Iíve never eaten one. Nice sour aroma as well with some sweet grains, dusty brett, earth and oak. The beer pours hazy pale yellow with a tiny ring of bubbles before settling out. Taste is tart up front with sweet candied orange, tangerine, pineapple, pear, musty, oaky and sour. Body is a little thin with high carbonation that kind of ceases of the flavor. After taste is sweet orange peel, pear, oak. Overall a super citrusy sour beer and the first Upland beer Iíve tasted with a real sweet factor. The body is thinner than the others and not as juicy, but the flavor is surprisingly fresh.

AdamJackson (2105) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 22, 2013
750 split 2-ways with the GF in some stemware at 45F - 2011 bottle

A - Poured a big head that faded like seltzer. Very fizzy. Appearance very persimmon like with a clear golden orange.

S - Smells like a tart acidic grape juice with notes of honey and caramel.

T - Very grapey. Tannic, grape skins with this interesting sweet acidity that reminds me of sparkling grape juice. Very sweet

M - sweet up front and dry through out.

O - I liked this a lot. I found the tartness to me tongue numbing and the sweetness to be too close to grape juice.

jmarsh123 (163) - Indiana, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Pours a bright yellow with a gigantic head that settles fairly quickly. I think after settling my glass was only 1/4 full. Smells of persimmons with some lemon, pepper and a lot of funk going on. Taste is very tart upfront. Much more so than I was expecting, but it wasnít bad. Rounds out into some lemony/persimmon flavor with a touch of funk at the end. Bubbly, but not a gusher for me. Good carbonation. Good light lambic. Been waiting to try this one for a while as I had a friend who made persimmon wine back home. Good flavor and nothing is terribly overpowering. Very good job by my local brewer.

Bottle courtesy of GT2, thanks! Clear pale yellow color, fluffy white head, solid lacing. Aroma of medicinal lemon. Taste is summer fruit, sour pomegranate. Hi carbonation. One of the best persimmon lambics Iíve had.

750mL. Pours a clear straw, medium larger white head fizzes out very quickly. Nose is apple oxidized, cider, really just not what it is supposed to be. Taste though is bright, sharp, very sour with long lemon acid, super citric. Dry finish. Seltzer body. Leathery, aggressive mouthfeel.

Fred82 (2093) - Quťbec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2013
750ml bottle at a tasting with JulienHuxley, Minderbinder, HoppyPocket and Tom10101. Bottle thanks to either one of those fine gents.
Appearance : Slightly hazy pale yellow with small head. short head retention.
Aroma : Fruity with acidic notes.
Taste : Acidic and vinegary with light fruits. Finish is slightly acidic and slightly acetic with light fruits. More fruits on nose than taste.
Overall : All in all an ok beer but nothing really special. Fruits are pretty subtle and acetic and acidic notes dominate the profile.

Gusher. Sort-of. Aroma was big persimmon, light funk, lemon. Flavor is more persimmon heavy with a semi-sweet funky note. Light oakiness, not overly carbonated. Very nice.
