COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Itís 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 youíll 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!

12 oz bottle. Pours a bright yellow with two-finger foamy white head that retains some lace. Good looking beer. Yeasty bread like aroma with secondary spices. A little bit of farmhouse funk in the flavor. Some citrus, mostly lemon. Very yeasty. Light bodied and fizzy palate. No real aftertaste. Refreshing. Picked up a six for $8.00 at The Beer Store. Went back for, alas, it was gone.

Jabic (431) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Ar: Savory, salty nose, a bit brothy - some perfume and tart citrus. Ap: Hazy straw gold - small white head with moderate retention, leaves a film of foam. T: Faint malt, pear, and peach - citrus rind and savory broth - medium-high bitterness, with some clean, tart citrus and herbal hops. P: Light body, very high carbonation - finish is very dry. O: Very nice mouthfeel and carbonation, and some nice flavors - the brothy quality throws it a bit off-balance, and some more fruitiness would be welcome.

Pint on tap. Lightly hazy golden body with a lasting disc of cream on top. Mild aroma of pine resin and earthy lemon honey. Tastes of earthy beeswax, resin and a touch of white grape skins. Medium body is dry and tingly with high carbonation.

bottle. Golden with one finger head. Light bodied saison with mild flavor and very little funk. Still, this is a very nice refreshing beer.

Fatehunter (1537) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Poured two fingers of head on a hazy, light straw colored body. It has a pleasant aroma of grain and citrus. The taste is mellow but good. A little spice and Belgian candy sweetness with a mild citrus bitter finish. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. A solid session saison.

hopwine (491) - brooklynzzzzz, New York, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Pours a lightly cloudy golden straw. Flavor is strangely minerally and oddly sharp for the style. Mouthfeel is thin and watery. The spice from the yeast has no malty counterpoint making this a very unbalanced beer. Iím not sure if this style does not translate well to such a low abv or if this is just a poor effort from victory. Either way, I would not revisit.

solidfunk (4904) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Decent saison with some bitter hay and grass on the top. Pours cloudy pale with good head and lacing. Decent amount of barnyard in here with hay and musk. Finishes grassy bitter. Soft carbonation. Ok for style, has good balance. Some soda water in feel with some cloying. Bottle.

radio_nowhere (1029) - Maryland, USA - JUN 12, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2013 Bottle into pint glass. Slightly cloudy golden color with white head. Aroma of spices (coriander and pepper stick out), some citrus fruitiness, bread, with some floral notes. Taste brings out more of the spices, citrus and pepper notes with a body thatís fairly yeasty and malty. Slight earthy hop note at the end. Medium body, average carbonation, complex, smooth and easy to drink. Dry and somewhat peppery finish. Pretty good, Iím pairing this with my Italian dinner coming up.
