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!

Nice new offering from victory! Light orange and cloudy. Aroma is slightly funky with notes of orange peel. Very light easy drinking. Taste is also orange, coriander, funky, and slightly bitter.

Elwood (2960) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a hazy greenish dark yellow with a nice head of loose, small bubbles. The nose is zesty with nice grass and saison yeast notes, perhaps a little lemon peel and hay. Spritely on the tongue with lots of green grass, a little green apple peel, lemon pith, and green peppercorn. Light body with a fairly clean finish. Somewhere between De Ranke XX Bitter and Saison du Buff flavor wise. Very solid stuff.

A very light but lively saison, ideal for sipping on a hot porch or at a ballgame. Crisp, beautiful citrus notes with a balance of aromatic aromas. Loved this one, very lively C02 and beautiful pale yellow pour. Swell.

This is a very tasty seasonal saison. I really enjoy the lower alcohol of this one. Clean, bright, hoppy. Very good American saison from a great brewery.

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.

superspak (2203) - Michigan, USA - OCT 17, 2013
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 8/13/2013. Pours moderately hazy golden straw color with a 2-3 finger dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon zest, orange zest, pear, coriander, clove, pepper, ginger, wheat, bread, floral, grass, herbal, and yeast earthiness. very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of yeast ester, spice, and moderate malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange zest, pear, coriander, clove, pepper, ginger, wheat, bread, floral, grass, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of lemon, pear, coriander, clove, pepper, cracker, bread, floral, grass, and herbal on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, spice, and moderate malt flavors; with great flavor robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a smooth and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice session saison style. Nice complexity, balance, and robustness of yeast, spice, and moderate malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
