Brewed by Upland Brewing Company
(Previously labeled Persimmon Lambic). Persimmon was the first sour beer we brewed to use a fruit from a native North American species of flora, the persimmon, which is also a popular Midwestern delicacy. Persimmon is a fruited sour ale where the distinct characteristics of American persimmons are melded with a mildly tart base of sour ale. Fresh aromas of persimmon, pear and peaches accompany the light straw color. Lactic tanginess, field flavors, and dry fruits create a refreshing and experiential taste. The finish is very dry, with lingering persimmon flavor.
(Old description) The persimmons were provided by Aaron Persinger, a local singer/songwriter who is currently the drummer for Rev. Peyton’s Big Damn Band. (The Rev himself is a certified Persimmon lover I’ve been told, can’t wait to get him a bottle). Being a classic Indiana fruit, we couldn’t resist, maybe one day we’ll find enough local mulberries and bring another (as far as we know) first-ever fruit lambic-style to the lineup.
