Pours pale gold with a large white head. Smells spicy, mild light fruits, a little funk, and some wheat. Taste is mild fruit, mild funk, hints of wheat, and very subtle spice. Light-bodied with a smooth, wet texture and less than expected mouth-carbonation, Victory Saison du BUFF finishes with a touch of wheat spice and funk. tbrim (1) - - JUN 14, 2013 does not count
Awesome bouquet. Wonderfully crisp. Just a delightful beer overall. This is one of my favorite beers.

Great taste. Moderate alcohol content. Second version I have tried. The letter on the side of the bottle is great. connor0415 (65) - - OCT 31, 2015
Very good saison, lots of herbal notes like sage and rosemary in both the smell and the flavor. Some citrus shines through as well. Some cracker like maltiness and a dry finish. Well done beer, good collaboration between these giants of craft beer Braudog (6716) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 23, 2011
Bottle. One of the sexiest light-colored pours I’ve ever seen ... wickedly active with a killer topping of white, boiling foam. The aroma is rocking with herb-garden freshness and wild fermentation-ness. This drinks with an equally kick-ass collection of spice, yeast, citrus and plain ol’ yumminess. A new classic?

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a pint glass.
The color is a clear yellowish/orange with some slight white head and some slight lacing.
The smell is a strong spicy, earth flavor that must be coming from the sage and some nice funky yeast flavor.
The taste is hoppy with more green flavor. There is a nice herb feel that is mixed with a nice hoppy flavor that spins on the tongue. Some citrus flavor brings it all in for a wonderful rounded beer.
The feel of this beer is light but has a nice smooth flavor that goes down with some presence. The flavor of the nose and the flavor in the taste come together to give a great earthy tone. This speaks summer and is really placed well in this season.

Bottle @ Linkery. Pours clear golden with decent tan head that left some residue on the lip of my tulip glass but nothing below the head. Inviting fruity aroma of citrus, apple, pepper, yeast, and floral hops. Delicious balance between hops and spice with a subtle sweetness. Dry finish with very little carbonation for the style. I absolutely loved this beer. rajendra82 (1093) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Pale golden color, hazy body, steady carbonation, and a one finger thick head looked very good in the tulip glass. The aroma was quite rustic, with smell of lavender, lemon, green pepper, and coriander. The taste showcased the floral character up front, with a slightly sweeter notes dominating art first before turning lemony, tart, and dry. Finish had a flourish of white peppercorns as well as bittering hops. The body was light and airy, and overall the beer was very quenching. gonzosauce (157) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - FEB 25, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2013 A random mistake to drink this style at such an age, but we got lucky. Pear, yeast, mint, pepper, faint banana on the nose. Exciting. Very clear through the gold; it’s good to see sunshine. Such an interesting flavor. Minty as hell; seems the rosemary has lost the herby attributes but maintained the floral - would not have expected such! A novelty of sorts, but a beer I would drink whenever I had the chance. cwill (93) - Parkesburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2015
It starts off with the classic saison flavor, yeast, some lemon, and soft wheaty malts and then the spices kick in. There is a spicy hop bitterness and a flavor of thyme and what’s that? Oregano. Overall it is a light tasting beer that heavily showcases its spicy flavor. It works out very nicely. Perfect pairing for pizza.
