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

adnielsen (10594) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle @ Avery Sour Fest 2014. Pours a milky yellow appearance with little head. Heavy passion fruit, guava, lemon, and other tropical fruits in the nose. The flavor was heavily acetic, extremely puckering and sour. Some funk but the beer so damn sour that it was hard to get other notes. The first beer I grabbed at the festival and possibly the first beer to run out, but it was a significant disappointment to me.

wchesser (2051) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 9, 2014
At Avery Sour Fest 14. Cloudy light orange straw. Nose of stone fruit, guava, light funk. Taste is very sour from the persimmon. Extremely puckering, persimmon flavor is clear, but just too tart for much more than a taster.

Dogbrick (12770) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Sample during the Secret Barrel Society tour on 05/24/2014: Hazy bright peach color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Fruity and floral aroma. Light to medium body with flavors of citrus, yeast and oak. The finish is mildly funky with a fruity yeast aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

Bottle @ Indy Sour Fest. Tart lactic and funky musty lemony aroma. Cloudy yellow with a small white head. Sour lactic lemon and funky musty basement flavor, with just a touch of balancing sweetness. Light body, lively carbonation.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Taste from a 750ml bottle at brew3crews house-warming party. Hazy pale yellow color. No head. Couple bits of lace. Great bigger sour taste, very light sweet. Medium to bigger body. Very smooth, very light carbonation. Good dry finish. Not very familiar with persimmon fruit, but I love the pear type, white grape and oak aromas. Hint of spice. Fantastic fruit sour.

750ml, caged and corked bottle. Bottled 2/25/2010. Batch 77-08. Poured a hazy (towards the middle/end of bottle) golden color with an averaged sized head. Persimmons (Im guessing as Im not overly familiar with them), citrus / lemons, and berries. Nice tart finish.

birdmachine (226) - Oakland, California, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle, 2011 vintage. Aroma is dominated by overripe citrus fruits: orange, tangerine and persimmon I suppose, though I couldnt say for sure since Ive 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 Ive tasted with a real sweet factor. The body is thinner than the others and not as juicy, but the flavor is surprisingly fresh.
