    Pretty excited for these two batches of Persica!


    Looking like I may fly out for the party in November. I have a free flight... Sounds like a no-brainer.

    I'm still pretty excited to try the newly released fruited bottles. They've been hitting home runs all over the place in 2013. I don't care if they are on bio-genetics.

    Have loved my membership thus far. Incredible beers and exceptionally well priced. $6 for a bottle of Vielle may be the best deal in beer.

    Raspberry Dark Origins is the tits. An amazing fruit beer. I thought L'brett D'Blackberry was good, not great. As with other CS beers it might just need more time in the bottle for the flavors to round out.

    Had the l'brett blackberry last night. It was good but not great. I got a lot of the tannic berry flavor rather than the juicy/fruity flavor from the blackberry. Still a nicely balanced sour though.

    One 375ml bottle of Wælzblood per returning member.

    Agree with you on the Blackberry, excited to try the Raspberry Dark Origins now.

    You are correct sir. I have loved everything that has come with my CS membership, but that Vielle is really special

    agree w/ the above posts. Tried all 4 and the two I thought I'd love (the L'Bretts) weren't as good as the ones I didn't have high hopes for. I'm hoping more time will help the l'bretts round out and develop a bit.

    Liked them in the exact opposite order I would've predicted:
    1 - Raspberry Dark Origins
    2 - BB Cherry Origins
    3 - L'Brett Plum
    4 - L'Brett Blackberry

    Any clues from Chad if he's envisioning a special brew for 2013 members returning for 2014?

    Member renewals are slated for Oct 16 - Nov 12, so mid-Nov for new memberships I'd assume.

    When I talked to them at the release they said they expected to open some slots and thought a few might drop out but they aren't opening a ton of slots. If they open I wouldn't wait to get join.

    No clue. Next year's price hasn't been announced yet. Was only giving you the most recent info.
