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!

radio_nowhere (1145) - 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.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2015 Exactly what it says. Very lemony. Creamy and fresh. Not something I want again, but it?s precisely what they said it would be. Tap

hopscotch (10082) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 6, 2015
Bottle... Pours hazy and yellow with huge, rocky, white head and lots of white and brown floaties tooling about my glass. The head never fully dissipates. Bright, fruity, spicy nose, offering coriander, white pepper, and a medley of citrus peels - mainly orange, key lime and ruby red grapefruit. Medium to full-bodied with jazzy carbonation. The flavor is perfectly balanced and easy drinking. Thereís a bright citric component, negligible spiciness and a hint of acidity. Yeasty, lightly bitter finish. Bottle courtesy of drowland!

I really enjoyed this beer, if I can find it again I will buy it.

BenH (3023) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle. Pale golden with billowing white head. I found the aroma offensive at first, like lemon scented cleaning products. Itís growing on me though, lemon and lime, sherbet, bret. Taste is a bit effed up too, lemon, citrus, plastic. Slightly tart and dry.

glennmastrange (2431) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Bottle. Moderate to heavy straw for the malt, flowers, herbs and lemon, moderate barnyard for the yeast, with notes of coriander, melon and damp wood. Head is large, frothy turning rocky, white with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is slightly hazy yet sparkling light amber. Flavor starts lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately acidic and lightly bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation. Nice depth in aroma, but this Saison is a little flat in flavor.

Bosco (235) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Pours hazy yellow with a white head and sticky lacing.I?m not a fan of spiced beers, with that being said I?ll try to review honestly. Spiced beer tends to have an eastern, incense type of flavor and aroma. This isn?t much different. Metallic notes with a piney background. Floral sweetness, mouth feel has some body to it and it finishes quite smoothly. I normally wouldn?t finish a spiced beer but Victory?s well executed brewing process is evident here so I gladly finished Swing with no problem. $9.99/multi sixer at Publix Boca Raton

hotstuff (4403) - Indiana, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Rated on 02-28-2013 at Victory B.C. This beer is presented with a small white head that is mostly lasting, transparent pale yellow body, fast rising carbonation observed, and a fair amount of lacing adorns my glass. The aroma is citrus, earthy hops, spicy, yeast, and malt. The flavor is citrus hops, yeast, spicy, caramel malt, and light bitter. The mouthfeel is lively carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. A very quaffable saison and worth trying.
