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!

BroSpud (2024) - , Massachusetts, USA - APR 10, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2013 12oz bottle. Pours a cloudy light golden with a white head. Light weight saison with flavors of lemon, pepper and water. Yes water. Very simple and light saison thatís not to bad but is a bit too on the watery side for this guy. 7-23-13: Tried this again and like it alot better. Yes it is lightweight and somewhat watery but for 4.5 really not bad and hitting the spot tonight. This time Iím getting alot of pear and clove notes. Same beer. Different day. Different beer.

Spices overwhelm grain taste---but were tasty. Very clear for a saison. Average head and body. Lots of flavor for a session brew!

Emeister84 (2004) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 7, 2013
Aromas of cardamom, herbs, ginger, and lemon peel. Straw-like complexion with a slight haze, and a mostly fading, white head. Dry, very floral, perfume-like, and somewhat spicy. Light bodied with lively carbonation, and a clean finish with lingering cardamom-like flavors.

JFGrind (1987) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2013
White pillow foamy head, hazy golden yellow body. Floral aroma, earth, yeast and mild bitterness. At 4.5% alcohol, itís a great session beer.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 17, 2013
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.

jjgmd (1961) - 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

Pale yellow with massive, creamy, white head, fine legs / Piquant nose of bologna, weed, orchard fruit, spice / Light body, creamy, lovely balance with fine bitter finish / Interesting, stylish flavors of bologna, weed, dandelion, orange peel, clove, coriander / A very appealing, different, saison, and a great summer session beer.

mcox90 (1873) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 24, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours a bright yellow with two-finger foamy white head that retains some lace. Good looking beer. Yeasty bread like aroma with secondary spices. A little bit of farmhouse funk in the flavor. Some citrus, mostly lemon. Very yeasty. Light bodied and fizzy palate. No real aftertaste. Refreshing. Picked up a six for $8.00 at The Beer Store. Went back for, alas, it was gone.
