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!

Draft at two stones.... Pours a cloudy bright yellow, slight orange tint. Decent little head. Nice nose of spices, earthy, flowers, camomile and some hops. Taste is the sames, spices, flowers, grains, floral notes, camomile, little citrus lime taste..... slight hoppiness in the after taste to balance it. Body is light, fluffy and really easy to drink. Decent stuff....

Scrapersnbeer (1478) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Flowery bouquet of yeast grass and citrus. Bubbly yellow, good head retention. Dry pollenated bitter flavor, some citrus mixed in. Body is light and very dry. A hop oriented saison, what one expects for Victory’s take on a Belgian style.

keanex (1452) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Best before July 27, 2013.
Appearance: A tall and fluffy white head is perched on a slightly cloudy pale golden body. The head has excellent retention and is as dense as cream. Spotty lacing is left on the glass as it dissipates.
Aroma: The aroma is bright with lemon, straw, light spices and leather. This smells great, it reminds me of Spring.
Taste: This follows the aroma nicely with a bright lemon flavor that provides a slight tartness with some leather overlying the lemon that finishes dry. The lemon lingers on the tongue for a bit a touch tart and dry with a slight lingering spice. This is a bit reminiscent of sucking on a lemon.
Palate: Medium bodied with a creamy full texture, soft carbonation.
Overall: This is an outstanding session beer. There is no sacrifice in taste. If this were $7 for a 6 pack this would be all I would drink until it’s gone for the season. This is still priced nicely at $9 for a 6 pack, I just wish it came out a few months later.

Beerenberger (1440) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Aroma of spice, yeast, citrus, and hay. Pours a slightly hazy light yellow with a mostly lasting white he’d and abundant lacing. The taste, chiefly, has a light bitterness to it. Flavors of coriander, citrus, with peppery notes and a hint of earthy barnyard in the dry finish. There is a bitter hoppy aftertaste. Medium-light body with crisp carbonation. Overall, a nice Saison. Should go well with any number of dishes.

jjgmd (1435) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Pours a semi clear light golden yellow with a small head. Nose is grass and wild outdoor spices. Taste is lemony, yeasty and full of spice. Obviously, very drinkable, but it is a session beer. Different but one time only. Finish is spicy as well, with lingering citrus. Quaff Score 6 / 10

wxman (1425) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2014
On tap at Global Brew. This is just what the name implies: a sessionable Begian Saison. Pours a bright yellow with a thin but retentive white head. Fruit and spice aroma. Taste is everything you like in a Belgian ale but w/o the sometimes cloying sweetness and higher ABV. This exhibits sweet pale malt, a fresh fruitiness, some grassiness and a bit of pepper, coriander and other spices. Clean and crisp; goes down easy. Good effort.

conway (1425) - - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle. Clear gold with a 1 finger white head. Aroma is spelt and floral notes. Taste adds a heaping portion of mint and some citrus in the finish. Soft mouthfeel and light carb. Not bad but a little weird.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAY 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy straw with a large, quickly dissipating white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is orange and lemon zest, coriander and other spices, some earthy yeast. Flavor is all that -- stro gly spiced but balanced well with some moderate bitterness, wheat and mild maltiness. Light to medium body. Quite good.
