hazy tangerine, puffy large bubbled white head dies quick. Meaty peach and heavy sawdust nose, reminiscent of rust, celery, and a lumber aisle with sourness interspersed but no part of the profile. Heavy pie crust and alcohol front, tons of effervescent sweetness with light grape sourness emerging mid amidst dough and papery bitterness that continues until the muted, coin metallic finish. Too effervescent, carbonation dominating most aspects and almost no sour through the disappointing end. Beerdedone (3408) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle. Pours golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma was funky & sour with yeast, bread and light fruit. Flavor was earthy with bread dough, wild yeast, pale malts and had some sour funkiness. cstuartj (1020) - Washington, USA - DEC 12, 2013
On tap at brewery. Light golden yellow. Nose is sour, yeasty. Muted sour attack. A bit sweet. Ok but not my thing. harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2013
I don’t think this is supposed to be on shelves until Wednesday, oh well, I got it Sunday.
From the label: "Beer #11: MORTIS Sour Persimmon Ale. There’s no escape from Mortis as it enwraps you in the tartness of persimmons and brettanomyces."
I’m quite underwhelmed by this beer. Pours a clouded golden with a bit of surface white foam. The nose carries primarily belgian yeast (run of the mill style), then there’s some funk a little soily grain, some hay and some sweet bread. Not really getting the persimmons here. Taste is sweet, with some grain and clay and hints of peppercorn and chestnuts; the Brett is maybe, maybe a little funky in there, but I feel like I really, really have to search for it. No tartness here....none. Full bodied in my opinion with a sharp, but short lived carbonation and a little more resonance than I’d prefer. This one is probably one of the bigger flops in the series unfortunately.

Very much wheat with a touch of sour and yeast. Pour is cloudy and golden with medium white head. Aroma is like most pale ale and wheat. Nice summer to fall beer that is refreshing,wheat and a little tart.
