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.

Wow...just wow. As a member of the 1st CS Reserve Society that did not renew, I am kicking myself right now. Been letting this beer sit in the cellar until now...

Bam! Fresh citrus fruit, melon, oak, funk...complex, delicious.

Great finish, as the flavor never really dissipates and goes on and on. Does not have the "cheesy"/vomit character that some CS beers do. Very clean and crisp, yet funky, complex and fruity. Not overly sour, just the right amount to give a pucker and keep one coming back for more.

Well done...really, this is a phenomenal beer.
