(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.

Bottle 750ml. Pours hazy blond/white with low white head. Some lacing. Aroma is of citrus, flowers, fruits, lime. Taste is of fruits, sourness, acid. Palate: Ligth-medium body. Overall: Good, fruity, but mainly acid/sour. Still nice to have to google a fruit, so at least I learned something.

Bottle shared by Tommy, thanks a lot! Pour is hazy golden with minimal white head and bery light lacing. Aroma is not bad but not that great, a bit fruity, sourness, some strange aromas too. Taste is fruity, wine notes, oak, funk, less acetic than kiwi. Low body and soft carbonation. Really not sure about this one.

Bottle. Hazy yellow pour, no head. Aroma is ultra acetic, fruity, very stinky, powerful fruit and acetic mixture. Taste is funky, very acidic, nothing really to describe the intense mix of sour and not-tasty fruit other than funky, the whole thing is a bit harsh. Enjoyable in a sample size, but not more.

Bottle (750 ml). Thanks to pantanap for this one! Hazy yellow/peach color with a low white head and little to no lacing. The first whiff was so acetic, it burned my nostrils. After that, there’s citrus, peaches, strong acetic presence and light sweetness. Taste is heavily sour with citrus, acetic notes, peaches and light sweetness. Medium body. Bone dry. Not extremely complex and so acetic that it’s hard to drink. Still, it was good and fun to try because there isn’t a lot of Persimmon beer available and because an average Sour is still better than almost any other average style beer.

Just pretty much perfect. Had this at one of the single greatest tasting parties I’ve ever attended and it blew me away. This was my first Uplands lambic and my God was it ever an experience!

PhillyCraft (7939) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Bottle shared by some random people in VT, thanks this was on my radar for a year or so. Pours slightly clearish yellow gold with small to medium white head. Big notes of sugary and tart persimmon, acidic fruits, berries, champagne yeast, and light barn funk. Lots of carbonation, light to med in body. Liked this better then the kiwi lambic.

markwise (5450) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Bottle generously shared by the Tampa Crew. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is some citrus, some chalky persimmons, some vinegar, some tartness, and some orange and funky fruit. Flavor is similar with citrus, some vinegar, some funk, some sour fruit, and some persimmons. Nice sour with a fair amount going on.

cbfobes (2891) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle shared at a local tasting, thanks Greg! Pours a clear yellow with a thin head, the aroma has a huge funky front end with all kinds of sour notes coming, the flavor is puckering sour, slight fruit in the finish mixed in with a little bit of sweetness in the finish though, kind of different but not bad.

50belair (3682) - Florida, USA - APR 9, 2013
Bottle. Gusher. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Sour fruit aromas. Tart and acidic with wonderful persimmon notes. Very acidic with loads of carbonation. My favorite lambic to date from Upland.

dcschiller (2211) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 23, 2013
750ml bottle. Pours a cloudy orange color with some bits of persimmon floating around. Aroma is funky, sour, and fruity. Taste is sour and a little sweet. This is a fantastic lambic. Just great.
