COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beer is the best reason for a road trip. This past spring we traveled down south to visit our old friends at Great Raft Brewing in Shreveport, Louisiana to experience southern hospitality. We shared beer, traded war stories and together we chose this sour blend of both persimmons and pawpaws aged on our sour reserve. These two wild, forageable fruits blend in harmony just like old friends.

weihenweizen (4171) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUL 15, 2017
Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle from shrubber85 poured into a glass. Hazy golden with small white head. Aroma is tart, medium/light body, high carbonation, and thick small-bubble lacing. Taste is tart lemon, persimmon, and some paw paw. Easier drinking than most Upland sours.

Bottle shared at Zwanze Day 2016. Hazy yellow pour with a white head. Tart, dandelion - very good. Would like to say ’I’m really getting the pawpaw,’ but I don’t know what the hell that is.

koleminer20 (4091) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 10, 2016
From notes. Enjoyed this one at the Brew Crew Bash in Ann Arbor on May 21. This one was poured from a 750 mL bottle. The pour is a bright hazy golden yellow with a larger white head that crisply fades down to a thinner ring. The aroma is pretty good. There is a lot of fruitiness to it, but it’s definitely lacking a big sour blast that we’ve come to know and love from Upland. It’s got a bit of lemon and persimmon on the front end, and a nice paw paw addition about half way through. The lacto doesn’t really sour this one as much as we’d like, and there is a light maltiness. It’s got a juicy sweetness about it that I’m not crazy about. The flavor is much of the same. There is an excellent fruitiness throughout, but the lacto just doesn’t sour it enough. The juices really are the sweetness that I’m not too fond of. It’s a good beer, I just wish that this were more sour. The mouth feel is spot on. There is a crisp tartness to it, it’s light and clean, with a effervescent carbonation and a lingeringly fruity finish. If it were more sour and tart, this would be an excellent sour.
