COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s a lively jazz rhythm, a vigorous sway, a change of view or even a roll in the proverbial hay. Now it also means the welcome jolt of joy you’ll experience upon your first sip of this session saison. Bracing, but benign, this Belgian style ale enlivens any experience with a spicy, aromatic start, citrus snap and fresh finish. Swing into spring with taste!

On tap at TAP in Atlanta. Tried this beer because wanted to have something relatively low alcohol. Was pleasantly surprised with the flavor and body. Typical saison aroma and taste - belgian yeast, spice, citrus. Nice and crisp. Good session beer.

"Pretty thin and very light, but with a lively mouthfeel and a lot of refreshing citrus in the nose and flavor on top of light but noticeable saison earthy spice. Not great, but quite pleasant."

Transfer from BA reveiw on 3-27-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – Pours a lightly hazed golden yellow color with a big billowy white head. The head initially fades very fast, but then slows its fade and lingers a bit. Once the head is completely faded (after about 4 min) a decent level of lace is left on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is heaviest of wheat, yeast, grass and some haylike funk. Mixed with these are notes of pepper, coriander and nutmeg as well; overall a fairly drier smelling traditional saison. Taste – The taste starts out of a medium wheaty flavor as well as some flavors of a light citrus. As the taste advances yeast and the spices detected in the nose, come to the tongue with the orange citrus transitioning more toward a lemon flavor. As the orange transitions to lemon, the bready flavors lighten and haylike and grassy flavors enter the taste. These flavors all take the taste its end, where the funky and hay flavors get even stronger in nature producing a somewhat bitter and a bit unbalanced grassy and astringent haylike funky flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is thin in its creaminess and thickness with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. Both are nice for making a crisp feeling brew and suit well the lighter session saison profile that the beer is going for. Overall – The initial tastes, mouthfeel, and look were all very nice, but the finish to the taste, with its big funky, grassy, haylike, and bitter flavors weren’t balanced out by enough wheaty/bready flavors/body.

Light very cloudy yellow pour with inch of bright fluffy head. Waxy crayon, yeasty scent; bright lemon and pear scent, strong cloves, a bit buttery, clementines. Average carbonation, medium slightly watery body, clean peppery finish. Taste full of lemon and funky pepper, bitter yet smooth. Nice assertive tasting but light bodied saison.

Shag (2603) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma is a soapy detergent lemon thing going on. It smells like Orval! This is very dry yet yeasty with a sharp lemon flavor that is slightly sour but very bitter and dry. Oh I see what you are doing Victory you are trying to make an Orval clone. Congrats you did just that! Strip away the name this is way higher rated than it currently is. Overall Im giving a bit above Orval for the balls to do this! Cheers!
