Arayaga2 (1810) - 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 (4992) - 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.

Mittenator (1389) - Michigan, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Can. Pale, hazy yellow with a dense, white gead. Light clove and yeast aromas. Tart with some dry bitterness. Really clean.

firstsip (500) - Michigan, USA - JAN 19, 2014
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.

Lupulucid (189) - - FEB 27, 2014
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.

stevoj (2319) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 12, 2014
This is hands down better than almost any pale lager out here, light but robust in aroma and taste. Some citrus qualities mix well with the cereal grains. Nice fluffy head and lots of sticky lacing. This is an everyday drinking beer, perfect for summertime and picnics.
