Bottle. Slightly hazy, bright yellow pour. Aroma is citrus, coriander, band aid. Light bodied and spritzy carbonation. Mild Brett flavors dominate, citrus, leather, rubber, hay, tart lemon. Has a solid peppery finish with good bitterness. Packs a lot of flavor for 4.5%. Glad i got a sixer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Too citrusy, I think. Clear, straw colored beer with light lacing and a small/moderate bubbly head. Pleasant enough aroma, zesty. Taste is average for the style, with some spices and citrus-y bitter finish. I think it’s a pretty good beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle into a tulip.
Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with a one finger white head. Lots of tiny bubbles keep the head around for awhile but there are just a few spots of lacing clinging to the sides of the glass.
The aroma has quite a bit of sulphur in it which was interesting and not in a good way. Also a little skunkyness. Lemon along with some clove and banana that lets you know this is a Saison.
Thankfully the sulphur is pretty much absent from the flavor and what is left are the typical Belgian banana and clove but not quite as prominent as in other Saisons I have had. A little lemon and orange is thrown in there too with some bready grain underneath. Mouthfeel is not as dry as I was hoping for with some noticeable stickyness left on the finish. This suprised me given the low strength of this beer.
Overall, this is a solid offering from Victory but not exciting at all. A pretty tame beer although it does make for a great thirst quencher.

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

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a light almost clear yellow with a thinly producing creamed head. Aromas of bubblegum mixed with pine(! strangely cool mix!), coriander, hay, and an mixed note of grapefruit. Flavors of hay/straw, light pine, slight ginger, and hints of coriander. Refreshing! Lightly spicy, medium bitter aftertaste, semi-dry, watery on palate. Great for a hot spring or summer day if you can wait that long. . .

Pours a slightly cloudy light yellow with a foamy white head. Lemon, spice, yeast aroma. Good carbonation, fizzy mouthfeel with a very slightly bitter lemon peel finish. Light, citrusy, refreshing body. Yeast takes a back seat to the fruit making it quite light and refreshing.

Tap at Sunswick. Poured a thin clear yellow. Nose has some spice hint of hops. Light spice notes in an easy drinker that has a hint of hops. Pretty pleasant.
