3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma of spice, yeast, citrus, and hay. Pours a slightly hazy light yellow with a mostly lasting white he’d and abundant lacing. The taste, chiefly, has a light bitterness to it. Flavors of coriander, citrus, with peppery notes and a hint of earthy barnyard in the dry finish. There is a bitter hoppy aftertaste. Medium-light body with crisp carbonation. Overall, a nice Saison. Should go well with any number of dishes.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
12oz Bottle, purchased at Wakefield Liquors - Wakefield, RI. For starters, I let myself get hosed for $1.99 to try something that I would hope was anything like a Dupont Avril. For a session Saison, this is a pretty lackluster Belgian Wit. WTF Victory? This is terrible. Orange, coriander, gross soap bomb, with almost no body. Officially done with Victory.
