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!

Bottle from Village Wine and Spirits in Athens. Sweet ’n’ sour initial, with some light funk and peach-lemon juice. Nearly clear, pear juice, little head. Light sweet initial / mid has a bit of barn and some sort of spice / finish is gently bitter and moves to grass notes. Light body. Okay. Has some decent saison character. Very light-bodied stuff.

12 oz. bottle. Pours hazy gold with a light white head that leaves a thin film and collar. Aroma is bread yeast with light citrus and lemon rind. Taste is more bread biscuit peppery spice and mild citrus notes. Palate is crisp and dry. I will really enjoy this stuff when it 88 degrees out come summer.

Heavy wheat and oats in nose. Mild sulfur. Mild lemon and floral notes. Pepper and citrus peel added in flavor. Very light and crisp.

The aroma is a bit watery, yeasty, and grainy with hints of citrus and lightly spicy. The appearance is hazy gold with a smallish head. The taste is like the aroma with pepper in the finish. The palate is thin. Overall drinkable but it does have an off astringent quality I am not a fan of.

Nice new offering from victory! Light orange and cloudy. Aroma is slightly funky with notes of orange peel. Very light easy drinking. Taste is also orange, coriander, funky, and slightly bitter.

12oz bottle poured golden yellow with just a touch of haze. White head that leaves a nice lacing on the glass. The aroma was of some undetermined spice notes and citrus. The aromas were light in nature. The flavor is a light to medium evervescent blend of those spice mixes and citrus possibly lemon with some yeasty funk but its not overpowering. Overall a pretty good flavor and this is one you could easily drink a few. There is a lot of carbonation with this beer as well.

ryanscourt (745) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Strong lemon, herbal aroma. Lively carbonation, floral. Very good spring beer. Session is a fair description. Could drink many. Liked it even more as it went on. Light hop finish.

Draft at Proof. Clear golden pour with a frothy white head. Aroma of pale grains, yeast funk, citrus and spiciness. Crisp tart lemons, wheat graininess, yeast funk and ending a spicy hop driven note. Pretty solid. Bit of of a tinny astringent character. Pretty solid.

12oz bottle into a tulip. Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with a one finger white head. Lots of tiny bubbles keep the head around for awhile but there are just a few spots of lacing clinging to the sides of the glass. The aroma has quite a bit of sulphur in it which was interesting and not in a good way. Also a little skunkyness. Lemon along with some clove and banana that lets you know this is a Saison. Thankfully the sulphur is pretty much absent from the flavor and what is left are the typical Belgian banana and clove but not quite as prominent as in other Saisons I have had. A little lemon and orange is thrown in there too with some bready grain underneath. Mouthfeel is not as dry as I was hoping for with some noticeable stickyness left on the finish. This suprised me given the low strength of this beer. Overall, this is a solid offering from Victory but not exciting at all. A pretty tame beer although it does make for a great thirst quencher.
