3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.
