3.6/5 rDev +8.4%
Clear amber yellow color with a thin head with low retention.
Nice aroma for the style and quite mutating. Notes of sweet peach, lemon, horse mantle and tangerines.
Sour and sweet flavor with funky notes of horse mantle, sweet malt, pears and apple cider. Dry and acid aftertaste.
Interesting sour, malt is still quite present, balancing on a sweet and sour state. Good bridge, sour heads may hate it and beginners may love it.

A - Golden pour with a thin foam head that settles fast. Very slight lacing noted.
S - Sour smell and scent of light fruits. Some grape and pear notes are present.
T - Seems to be a bit all over the place. The wild yeast gives this a tartness and plenty of sour notes. But I found the sweetness of fruit sugars put this beer into an area that it wasn't good at any one thing. The complexity did not improve this beer.
M - Nothing special, and I'd argue the balance is not there because of the introdcution of fruit sugars to this wild ale.
O - I'd venture that this should not be what one uses as a guide for the wild ale style. And for those who enjoy light fruit flavors, there are so many better options. Perhaps interesting, but I'd pass on this.

A: Pours a lightly hazy light to medium golden yellow in color with light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall fizzy white head that slowly reduces to a thin film that covers the entire surface of the beer with a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass.
S: Light amounts of sourness with some light fruits (pear) and hints of persimmon.
T: There is a light amount of upfront sourness with a little more sweetness from the persimmon in the finish.
M: Light bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Moderate amounts of acidic prickliness.
O: I found this beer pretty easy to drink, approachable, and enjoyable. The addition of the persimmon makes this beer have a nice balance between the sweetness and sourness.

3.38/5 rDev +1.8%
A: A golden beer with excellent clarity. The rocky, white head isn't all that high but it has decent retention. There is a slight bit of lacing on the glass.
S: There is a moderate strength, sharp Berliner Weisse like sour note with a warm fruitiness and some light Belgian yeast aromas of spice and fruit. I'm not familiar with persimmons but the fruitiness I get is a mixture of berries, oranges with some of there peels and some peach backed by some black pepper and a little clove. There is a touch of malt sweetness as well.
T: A moderately-light sour flavor with a clean, light malt sweetness dominate the flavor. There is a moderately-light fruitiness in there as well. Little in the way of hops bitterness and no hops flavor perceived. The balance is about even between the sour and the sweet but it does tip more towards the sour as it warms.
M: Medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation with a slight astringency.
O: The sour flavor is there but not as strong as I had hoped and the malt is add to much sweetness. The beer could be considered a fruit lambic but it not a great example.
