Bomber, poured cloudy, yellow, abundant off white head, lots of lacing. Aroma of yeast, malts, grains and spices (clove, coriander). Taste is fruity, sweet, some yeast, and some grain. Nice and refreshing, very interesting beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
DATE TASTED: August 16, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Duvel footed tulip... OCCASION: recovering from a shore trip to LBI... APPEARANCE: a tumultuous twister of bubble stirs the heart of a hazy burnt orange body; head is foamy, white, and full of effervescence, with high arching lacing to boot ... AROMA: banana, clove, soft pepper, and lavender/lilac--complex yet withdrawn... PALATE: to the effect of the aroma, the beer apologizes as it is sipped; foamy and creamy through its great head retention; lively and rounded on the tongue, memorable in its aftertaste with a dry finish... TASTE: clove, banana, vanilla, pepper, grapefruit, apple, biscuit, and some other fruits that are patient yet palpable...the yeasty end suggests dough and read, with floral hops and lemon arriving in waves after the sip has finished... OVERALL: I try not to be biased when drinking big bottles, saisons, or Victory brews, but this glass contains all through with a winning combination--refreshing, complex, vibrant, and flavorful...worthy of a bomber and a Sunday night...

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at CBM Koenji. Hazy straw with a big soapy white head. Aromas of lemon zest, light barnyard and bright, juicy citrus. Taste is more of the same, with a strong wheat profile. Not much of a saison, but still a refreshing summer beer on a hot night.

Shaker showing neon yellow with sparse clean white foam.
The nose shows light Brett.
The palate is well carbonated and light bodied. Some notes of Brett but mostly bubble gum and banana. Basically a wheat beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy light orange with a thin white head. Aroma of apple and light fruits, hay, funk, wheat malt, lemon. Flavor of light fruits, brett, light tart fruits, musty hay, bready malt. A tasty, lightly funky sasion. Pleasant and easy to drink. A good value beer too ($5.99 bomber!).

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Straw yellow color, big puffy head. Effervescent carbonation.
Aroma is Belgian funk, biscuit malts, sweet, sugary malts. A touch of white wine, and some dry wheats. The alcohol does not hide. There is pungent sourness above the rim of the glass.
Tastes of more white wine, hint of champagne. The brett funk is legit. Very peppery, with some lemon. The wild yeasts really blossom nicely.
The feel is thick and has just the tiniest of burns on the way down. For $5.50, at 7.5%, you could get a lot less drunk.
