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!

Yellow almost-clear pour some white head. Citrus grassy hop aromas, lemons yeast. Perfume flavors on the tongue, some funk, acidity fades to banana yeast then to very strong bitterness. Dry clean palate and mid body. A bit of a departure from the style definitely american. I wouldn’t session this as it is a bit too harshly citric and bitter.

lesifflebiere (1550) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2014
Dorée, bien pétillante, mais elle présente peu de mousse ; le nez est en épices (coriandre, myrique, sapin) et en fruits (citron, mangue). Plus retenue en bouche, elle prend mieux le temps d’exprimer ses différentes composantes, trop agressives en nez. Les saveurs sont justes, bien balancées, les malts ressortent, bref c’est une bonne Saison, totalement réussie, si l’on oublie ses petits impairs.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - 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.

lamas (1527) - Washington DC, USA - APR 20, 2013
Bottle. Enjoy by: 07/21/13. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a skim of a beige head. A zesty aroma of citrus rinds, oranges, pineapples, bananas, bubblegum, candi sugar, cloves, nutmeg, light coriander, pepper, and a sizable yeastiness. Semi-sweet upfront taste-wise with a little candi sugar and bubblegum. Some cereal grains and zesty citrus rinds follow. Spicy. Yeasty. Kinda tangy. More than a few dashes of pepper in the moderately dry finish. Very enjoyable and very sessionable for a saison.

Clear gold pour with a white head. Strong pepper and clove aroma with some yeast. Taste again is very spicy with some yeast, earth, and vegetables. Prickly carbonation.

RABinCO (1508) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Bottle into a fluted glass. Clear hay with a thick white head. Aroma is spicy, citrus, white bread. Taste is like a fizzy grapefruit cocktail. Lots of spice, citrus, pine, mint. A bit thin. Definitely easy drinking.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - OCT 22, 2014
THOUGHTS: A little disappointed with this one. Just because something is low in alcohol, doesn’t mean its sessionable. It has to be easy to drink too; and this definitely isn’t easy to drink. It was interesting and complex but there was way too much going on flavor-wise for such a light body. TECHNICAL: Drank 3/29/2013. Bottle. Poured a sparkling, light, golden yellow with an average, slightly off-white head that kept a nice sheet and left excellent lacing. The aroma had light white bread and pale malt; light grassy hops; moderate musty, dusty and cobweb-like yeast; pepper and other spices; lemon; lime; and orange. The initial flavor was slightly sweet, moderately bitter and heavily acidic; while the finish was lightly sweet, heavily bitter and nearly harshly acidic. There was lemon, orange, pale malt, crackers, white bread, earthy yeast, metallic hops, spices, slightly funky yeast, grassy hops, citrus pith and rind. The light to medium body was dry with fizzy carbonation and a dry and metallic finish.

closey22 (1469) - Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Hazy gold with parades of bubbles streaming from the bottom to w lasting offwhite head; aroma is hoppy with earthy yeasty sweet notes; Flava is so rich and complex blend of lemony tartness, dry graininess, herbal spiciness; feels light crisp and fizzy; finishes dry hoppy bitters hints of lemon zest

can8ianben (1458) - State College, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Golden color. Opens sweet and finishes dry. Aggressively hopped which ends up hiding a bit of the Belgian yeast. Still, really cool beer right here. Very tasty.

williamherbert (1452) - Syracuse, New York, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Hazy yellow with a big, puffy white head. Major carbonation. Aroma is orange and lemon. Belgian witbier funk/sweetness, with just a hint of that sour Saison stuff. Perfumey as hell. Also has an actual malt backbone. Grassy and yet with a touch of bready caramel malts. I’m really REALLY impressed with the scent. Taste is more of a Belgian golden ale, with more of a barley malt than a wheat malt. The taste is a little flatter than the aroma would suggest but still pleasant enough. Doesn’t have the "punch" to it that the aroma has. Very bubbly and fizzy on the palate; prickly. This is a very summery citrus flavor, light enough for a hot day but not bereft of flavors.
