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!

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.

355 ml bottle from wegmans in Niagara Falls ny. Clear light golden with a lasting white head. Nice light fruity and spicy nose. The flavour is way over spiced making it pretty much undrinkable. Not a session saison at all. Boooooooooooooooo!

puboflyons (2224) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 11, 2013
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is a slightly hazy pale yellow with a big, fluffy white head. Silky & soft. Vibrant herbal aroma of German Thyme, Rosemary, and maybe Savory along with a lemon citrus note. The body is smooth and medium. The taste has a good pale malt quality to it along with those full flavored herbs, citrus, and yeasty bread. An all around fascinating beer.

joet (2224) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - APR 12, 2014
Green tinged golden liquid with a slim head of fine white foam. Creamy, spritzy feel. Very little bouquet. Mineral, white pepper, paper, earthy. Welcome taste just off dryness. An estery tropical note, phenolic bandage, medium to heavy bitterness in the finish. Lots of character for a little guy but too much bitterness and spice in the way of the saison greatest offerings: rustic simplicity and quaffability.

jcr (2221) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - APR 21, 2013
Bottle. Cloudy light gold. Frothy white head. Lots of spice in the aroma. Cardamon, clove, all spice, herbs, toasted grain. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery turning velvety texture, lively carbonation. Dry enough, but the spice tastes forced and infused, making one wonder what they’re masking in order to pull off a 4.5% saison. No nuances here.

12oz bottle from Binny’s. Pours hazy golden yellow with white head. Aromas of lemony citrus, light spices, and saison yeast. Flavors are on the lighter side with some light spices, bready malts, little yeast, and some citrus. Nice drinkable beer.

Chudwick (2209) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - SEP 16, 2013
12oz bottle - pours hazy pale gold with small white head. Nose is lemon peel and floral. Sip adds straw. Sticky. Light mouthfeel for the style. Not too spicy or yeasty. Sessionable? Yes.

Undated 12 oz bottle into a Piraat tulip glass. A: Pours a slightly hazed golden color. The white head has moderate size and duration but leaves ample lacing on the glass. High carbonation by appearances (and feel). S: Plenty of lemon and other citrus with coriander and a background of grass, hops and wheat. Nice complexity for a 4.5% saison, albeit not very appealing. T- Notably tart and fruity with some lemon zest, coriander, banana, and vague spices. M- light bodied with crisp, high carbonation; dry finish. O- a flavorful Saison that is too spiced to serve as a session beer for some. Nice and reffreshig, nonetheless, on a hot summer day.
