shigadeyo (2976) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2013

12/15/2010: Victory Saison du Buff... Aroma: Very much like the other two versions, but probably more closer to Stone: Lots of rosemary with some thyme and citrus peel. Appearance: Cloudy pale golden yellow with a dense white to off-white crown. Flavor: Floral and soapy with the herbs coming out more in the middle along with tangy malts; citrus pithe and a growing bitterness come through in the finish. Palate: Medium-bodied, maybe even pushing medium-full; soft, yet slick and nicely oily. Overall: Also very good, a very much like the DFH and Stone versions; I liked the DFH one the most, followed by the Stone version and then just slightly behind is this one; the flavor and herbs are a bit more subdued in this one, but for the price Victory is the best deal at nearly $1/bottle cheaper than the other two... Go figure!

12 fl. oz. bottle (6.8% Alc./Vol. / 11 16 2011). Rating #360 for this beer.

Garbageman (443) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - JUN 28, 2013
From bottle. Pours a clear golden color with decent head. Aroma is a blend of herbs, hops and yeast. Taste follows but adds citrus and some light malt.

12 ounce bottle. Thanks Andrew! Pours a slightly cloudy pale gold with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, yeast, spice, and grass. Taste is lemons, yeast, mint, cloves, malt, and florals. Nice.

fidelis83 (1908) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle, thanks to joshmcg000. Slightly hazy gold pour with a thin, long lasting bright white head that leaves a surprisingly nice amount of lacing. Aroma of sage, ginger, wet limestone, light cereal, a little tart stone fruit, and some nice, slightly funky yeast. Flavor is cereal, stone fruit and toast up front, leading to the spicy ginger, sage, and peppercorn middle and a nice, spicy, floral and lightly biter citrus peel finish. Light to medium body, slightly creamy entry, moderate, slightly sharp carbonation and off dry finish. Really good stuff.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2013 I love this style and this beer...high carbonation...nice spice in the nose.. A little tart..not a real dry finish as you’d maybe expect... A mild sweet finish.. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

boto (1827) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - APR 13, 2013
12oz. bottle: This one pours a hazy, golden color. There wasn’t much of a white head on it, and what was there didn’t linger or leave any lacing. It has a nice aroma. Somewhat musty, with lemon and grapefruit, wheat and some peppery notes. Interesting taste. Some tartness, wheat, spiciness, bit of bitterness, lemon, a touch of yeastiness and breadiness. A very nice Saison. I hope they do it again!
