"The San'Shyuum have always excelled in the arts of intoxication."
— The Confirmer referring to kasna[1]

Kasna was a rare alcoholic beverage produced by the San'Shyuum during the reign of the Forerunners. It was described as a greenish liquid with a pungent, sweet and sour odor.[2][3] It is also noted for leaving green stains on whatever is used to serve it. It was described by Forerunners that imbibed it as burning the belly and softening the edges.[4] The Confirmer was gifted several bottles of kasna from the San'Shyuum quarantined on their homeworld, Janjur Qom, from their finest reserves.[1] Splendid-Dust-of-Ancient-Suns also drank it while on Installation 00 during the reintroduction in order to bring himself to speak to the other Forerunners present about secret knowledge he held.[4]
