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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Always Ron's in Hagerstown, MD.
Clear, yellow-amber with an off-white head and excellent lacing.
Aroma of yeast, fruit, pine, floral perfume and mild earthy hops.
Taste of floral hops, earthy herbs and spice, year and pine. Much hoppier, or at least less malty, than your typical saison.
Medium body and medium carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance has a hazy pale golden yellow body with a two finger white foamy head that sticks around for most of the beer, some light sticky lacing is left in rings.
The smell has a citrus/lemon coming through with some light pepper and a bit of mint shows up after a bit of warming.
The taste has all of those previously mentioned flavors coming through in an earthy flavorful way, earthy aftertaste and finish.
The palate is light to medium, sessionable, adequately carbonated for the style and for me leading to a nice smoothness all around.
Overall, I say this is good for the style and very good to me.

White pillow foamy head, hazy golden yellow body. Floral aroma, earth, yeast and mild bitterness. At 4.5% alcohol, it’s a great session beer.

Aroma is great with good black pepper, rosemary and orange peel. Pours golden amber with a huge sudsy head. Taste is very spicy with the black pepper forward and a nice dry herbal bread finish. A fantastic session beer from victory.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Massive three finger cappuccino foam white head on a hazy light bright yellow orange. Spicy, peppery, floral and a tad yeasty in the aroma. Way too much spice in the flavor, white peppercorn, and a bit of grass. Lighter soft chalky body. Meh

This has been my go-to beer as of late. Sessionable is the key although it does start to get a bit estery after a few.
