Pours a clear light blond color with light off-white head. Aroma is of intense citrus with a bit of grapefruit, lemon zest, and light grainy malt. Taste is intense citrus with lemon, floral notes, citrus hop bite with a bit of apricot sneaking in at the finish if you look for it. What a terrific brew!

Pours a bright yellow. Light citrus and wheat aroma. Grain taste initially. Very sparkly with nice hop character. Great with chicken and light BBQ fare.

Pretty good summertime beer! Served with a nice white, medium sized, foamy head that settled down to a light cover and lots of lace. Color was a clear amber yellow with some bubble trails. Aroma was grain, malt, fresh cut grass, and a little fresh hop. Flavor was very similar to nose. Body is good and so is carbonation. Was a little sharp on the tongue. Finish is medium long and like flavor. Session beer.

I knew I wouldnít be getting a marginal summer ale from Victory--no way! Damn this was tasty and nice to look as well. Perfectly balanced. I could drink this all summer.

Bottle. Split with James and Vinnie. Pours golden and frothy white. Lacing is nice and spotty. Aroma of corny pilsner malts, wet grass, fresh soil, slight caramel, and some crystal malts. Very corn and malt oriented Belgian ale, which I thought was a pilsner. Drinkable, soft, yet sturdy, well balanced and firm enough to hold up to multiple bottle sessions. Perfect tailgaiting beer. Thirst quenching and refreshing golden ale.

Bottle. Poured clear pale color with an average white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate floral hop and malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2012 Draft. Pour is bright gold with an excellent white head. Aroma is biscuit, grassy/floral hops (saaz Iím guessing), lemon. Flavor is more grassy hops, biscuit. Palate is crisp, lightly bitter, light body. Just an all around good Summer beer.
Re-rate: gold pour, nice white head. Dank grassy/floral hop bitterness; cracker malt. Crisp and refreshing. During the summer, my default beer choice.

Victory Summer Love Ale is a super clear, pale yellow ale with an airy white head that has good retention and lacing. It has a very citrusy, orange aroma with a note of light grain. It smells a little sweet. Itís medium-light bodied and very smooth with a crisp, dry finish. Itís lightly bittered and quite flavorful. It tastes like light grain with a good amount of orange and grapefruit. The balance is perfect. Itís incredibly quenching. This is everything a summer ale should be.
