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!

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.

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 (3027) - 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.

Pours clear yellow, lots of head. Nose is immediate skunk, like an import pale lager. Some floral notes, Belgian yeast, some lemon. Very light with light floral taste, orange, lemon, bread dough. Very good!

novels (424) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 14, 2013
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.

Draft from NYC Craft Beer Fest. A very sweet and lively saison. Lemon zest with notes of pound cake and corn bread. Very pillowy in texture. Pleasant!
