16oz pour at Max’s. Pours a hazy, straw yellow with some frothy white head. Nice happy, grassy aroma, hay. Flavors of hay, grass, mushy rice, lemon. Dry, refreshing, super drinkable.

Draft at Max’s courtesy of Brian, thank you sir! Cloudy golden yellow color, fluffy white head, solid lacing. Aroma of lightly spiced white bread. Taste is peppery lemon. Tasty.

fidelis83 (1823) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - SEP 30, 2013
Nearly clear, pale yellow-gold with a 2 finger, fluffy white head that has great retention and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is mostly yeast, stone fruit and floral, citrus and fruity hops some very light cereal grain notes. Flavor is floral and grainy up front followed by slightly funky, fruity and spicy yeast, nice citrus, floral and passion fruity hops, a little pepper and mineral notes. Light body with a neutral feel and light, but blanketing and sharp carbonation and off dry finish. Good stuff, but the malt side is pretty lacking, the yeast and hops make up for it well enough, though. I am not really sure what makes this a Specialty Grain style beer, but it is a nice, light and flavorful hoppy Saison.

12-oz can. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a loose sudsy whitish head. Nose comes on like a saison for sure, with mild candied lemon notes hidden in sweet grass. Creamy medium body with very lively carb. Corn, grass, and sweet cream mid palate. Unlike those other beers, and the better for it.

brokensail (9921) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 23, 2013
On tap @ Congregation Long Beach. Hazy golden pour with a tall white head. Aroma is sweet, biscuit malt. Dough, lemon zest, white pepper, and yeast. Nice spicy and floral hops, as well. Flavor is mildly sweet with some biscuit and dough notes. A touch of apple, some lemon, and white pepper. Floral hops, yeast, and a dry finish.

Arayaga2 (1754) - portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Hazy yellow with a big white head. Aroma is lemongrass and pear esters. Taste is the same, and refreshing while still a bit intense.

notalush (4631) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Can - hazy gold - fluffy, well-retained head - I assume this is the same as Premium, minus the brett/bugs - nice, crisp, dry aroma, with floral American hops, moderate flint/mineral, mild peppery phenolics, light pils malt sweetness - soft carbonation - the slightest sweetness up front makes way a very crisp, dry beer, with a nice closing mineral bite - moderate bitterness, straw/hay, very subdued phenols - crisp, crackery, lightly peppery finish that leaves you thirsting for another sip - could easily be classified as a Belgian ale - a very nice session ale - I just wish it weren’t close to 12 bucks a six pack, otherwise it would be a go-to Belgian session for me - this is somewhat what I was hoping Victory Swing was going to be like.

Can. Pale, hazy yellow with a dense, white gead. Light clove and yeast aromas. Tart with some dry bitterness. Really clean.

From can at Royal Oak Beer Fest. I normally can’t stand corn in a beer in any capacity, but this pleasantly surprised me. Golden pour with light, crisp body. Refreshing funk with barely discernible corn.

Classique is very interesting sleeper of a beer. There is a touch of lager character that had the effect of lowering my expectations but the full dreaded twang failed to materialize. Instead, many appealing flavors and complexity emerged, facilitated by quite an exceptional balance.
