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!

rangerred (936) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - MAR 10, 2013
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.

Nephilium (1369) - Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Mild lemon and earthy aroma. Pours a hazy light yellow with almost no head. Light crisp flavor, with a touch of earthy notes and citrus. Very easy drinking, and a nice session beer.

jbruner (2356) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Pours a hazy golden yellow on tap with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave light lacing. Aroma of spice, wheat, and a slight funk. Taste follows, slight bitter finish, clean and slightly tart. Good saison, but nothing that exciting.

drowland (6082) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - MAR 9, 2013
3/9/13. 12oz bottle from Grassroots. Hazy golden pour with a solid off-white head that fades. Spice, light malts, esters, a hint of plastic, and citrus in the aroma. Lightly malty flavor with plenty of phenolic spice, some citrus, esters, and a lingering dry bite. Light amd drinkable. Nice.

Westmeister (1784) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Bottle. Unclear, bright yellow. Nose is initially slight wet straw/funk, heavy spice, lemon citrus. Comes of a bit odd to me. Taste is tangy lemony, grapefruit hints, coriander, funky straw. Refreshing, dry, interesting.

PhillyCraft (3309) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2013
On tap at BBE. Pours clearish gold with light to medium head and lacing. Notes of wit bier, coriander, pepper and too much spice. This one was way more of a belgian white then a saison. Medium to heavy carbonation. Not a big fan.
