Draft serving at the old taproom into a snifter, reviewed from notes. Hazy, yellow to orange in color with a light, fading head. Tart green fruits - grape, citrus, apple - make for an acidic character with a lightly flavored malt backbone. Dry with touches of oak. Moderate carbonation with a crisp, lighter mouthfeel. Hay, bread, lemon. Quite simple and refreshingly tart. (373 characters)

Incredible smooth and drinkable. Unique pleasurable aroma, yes white wine, saison, spice.Tart fruit and well controlled. A world of lace, white head on peachy golden body. A little spice heat burn on finish.
Thanks Jason Bach for this expensive little diamond. (261 characters)

Bottle: Poured a lightly hazy golden color ale with a small white foamy head with limited retention and some minimal lacing. Aroma of tart notes with light vinous notes also noticeable. Taste is a bit of a mess with limited cohesion and no sense of direction. Tart notes are easily distinguishable with Chardonnay notes not nearly as noticeable. Body is light with very low carbonation. I either got a bad bottle and just don’t enjoy this beer. (446 characters)

Pours somewhat hazy yellow with a big white foam cap that stuck around. Excellent sticky lacing down the glass.

Nice aromas as well. Dry white wine, grape must, a little black pepper and tart apple.

Drinks very close to a chardonnay as well. Excellent dry wine notes along with the grape must. Saison characters are restrained and the wine barrel shines through. Finishes oaky and incredibly dry with a nice tart sourness.

Light bodied with good carbonation. Leaves a trying spicy tingly feeling on the tongue.

Outstanding beer! I've never had Persica, but of all the CS stuff I've had, this is hands down the best. I hope this one gets made again. (652 characters)
