750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled 3/15/2011, batch 71-09.

Appearance - It's a gusher. Big white head on a hazy yellow orange body. Thin collar after it settles and only a couple small islands of bubbles.

Smell - Lots of citrus. Never had a persimmon, so I can't compare it. Musty and a touch acidic.

Taste - Very sour. Fruity, less citrusy than the nose, but a definite orange-like taste. A little grainy. Finishes with some acetic sourness.

Mouthfeel - Highly carbonated. Makes it seem effervescent. Drinkably light.

Overall - Not really lambicky, but a nice American sour. Much better than the Kiwi I had a couple weeks ago.

My bottle, shared at TN whales tasting 3/16/2013.

Pours a super light clear golden yellow, nice white head at first but it fades pretty quickly.

Smell is lots of funk, lemon, orange or peach maybe, a touch of sweetness.

Taste is very tart and acidic up front but becomes fairly sweet too, there's a fruitiness I can't really identify--lemon drops maybe? Hints of banana and peach and orange. Lots of acidity.

Very fizzy, nice mouthfeel, pretty refreshing despite the sour, very drinkable.

8.5/10

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Bottled: 3/15/11 Batch: 71-04

Appearance: Pours a cloudy goldenstraw, with a soda-like head that fizzes away rather quickly, leaving some legs but not much lace

Smell: Here in NC, persimmons are a seasonal fruit and persimmon pudding is delicious local specialty; in this brew, the persimmon aroma is unmistakable; though as this beer is a Lambic, there is also a tart, sour apple character

Taste: As expected, the tartness hits the tongue right away, with the persimmon flavors arriving in the middle and becoming more pronounced, after the swallow; somewhat puckery in the finish but well-attenuated and dry

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied and rather fizzy

Overall: A very nicely balanced Lambic that shows off both the flinty tartness as well as the underlying fruit

Wish I could remember who to thank for this treat but the trade took place some time ago
