    What have people traded for this, or what with someone with this want to let go of it.

    I traded one for a BCBVS, but I regret it....and doubt that would happen again. I have another that I'd like to use as a big ass package for....wait for it....Ann. I know, mere mortals can't get Ann, but I'm gonna throw everything at it!

    Borderline whale status. I've attempted multiple brewery-release bottles but wasn't close.

    The one thing I'll tell you is that it's 100% worth trading for. I couldn't believe how good it was. Cam graciously opened one at a recent tasting and it blew everyone away.

    I threw up a couple ISO posts offering some solid brews like Black Note and Surly 4 and had no takers. Per the Crooked Stave website, there is a new batch being released during the 1st qrtr next year to Reserve Society members so it might be easier to land then.

    I opened my last 2012 bottle when Texas A&M beat Bama (gig Em). I felt it was a worthy time to open it.

    I don't know if I'll trade any Persicas I get in the Society next year. It's so damn good.

    on the bottle it says "2011 vintage"
    released in 2012, must have been brewed in 2011

    Are these actually trading that well o_O. I just got my 3 bottles from my trustee. I was planning on keeping all 3 as I got to taste it from a bottle someone else had gotten back in Austin. But it sounds like there are several other things I've really been wanting to try that this is managing to land. Might have to relent and trade one. Has anyone done a side-by-side with Fantasia?

    Did a side-by-side with Fantasia, Logsdon Peche n Brett AC Golden Peche/Apricot and two different bottling of the mighty Fou Foune. Amazed at how well Persica and the AC Golden Apricot were showing right next to the vintages of Fou Foune. Persica might have been the show stopper. It wasn't even fair to have Fantasia as part of the tasting.

    Never heard of AC Golden Apricot. Shocked when I saw it was made by Coors. Where do they sell it o_O. Curious to try it now.

    They sold it exclusively at a store called "Mile High High Wine and Spirits" in Denver. Sold out in like 30 minutes when it came out, if I remember correctly, at the beginning of summer. They did a Kriek as well. You see it pop up on trading forum from time to time, so I'm sure there are people that still have bottles. IMO AC Golden Apricot> The Bruery's Filmishmish.

    I'll trade you an Apricot for a Persica...

    In all seriousness, this beer took many by surprise. Sadly the batch was insanely small, 16 or so cases. They will be releasing a new batch early next year and it should be composed of a wider range of barrels. All their barrel aged fruited sours are wonderful. Think Lou Pepe volume of fruit.

    I'll definitely think about it. Still not sure I want to trade the Persica since I already know how good it is lol. Anyone know if the Crooked Stave Batch 1 is supposed to be any good. The few reviews there are were positive, but there's not really enough to go on.

    I thought it was great. Over the many visits to the brewery I walked out with at least one every time (usually 2-3). Unfortunately (even with good intentions of cellaring a couple) I drank my last one a couple of weeks ago.
