Slightly hazy yellow. White head has some staying power. Kind of a dirty laundry aroma. Floral fruity and sweet flavor. Rose petal comes to mind.

ChainGangGuy (4874) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - APR 2, 2013
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia. Appearance: Pours a hazed, light straw-hued body with a medium-small, white head. Smell: Fragrant citrus shrouds the particularly pale maltiness, with bits of grain-flecked dough with subtle florals and a melange of spiciness. Taste: Pils malts, hints of other such grains sprinkled with a fine dusting of powdered sugar. Floral hints meld into citrus notes from the hops and citrus fruit additions which shimmy into a spiciness from the yeast, peppercorns, and hops, aided by the crisp carbonation. Dry, spicy finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-high carbonation for a lively, zippy mouthfeel. Overall: Id always thought the Victory V / Helios Ale saison was a bit too chewy for me, bodywise. This new Swing Session Saison is bright, light, and refreshing.

Garrold (4850) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle from Bottledog, Kings Cross. Hazy, yellow colour. Thin, bubbly, white head. Smells like the lemon infused aftershave youd get in a Turkish barbers shop. Lemongrass. Sorbet. Taste is dry, and a little pithy bitter. Fresh palate. A little creaminess. Finish is spicy dry, with bitterness at the end.

Bulk_Carrier (4741) - Essex Junction, Vermont, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance has a hazy pale golden yellow body with a two finger white foamy head that sticks around for most of the beer, some light sticky lacing is left in rings. The smell has a citrus/lemon coming through with some light pepper and a bit of mint shows up after a bit of warming. The taste has all of those previously mentioned flavors coming through in an earthy flavorful way, earthy aftertaste and finish. The palate is light to medium, sessionable, adequately carbonated for the style and for me leading to a nice smoothness all around. Overall, I say this is good for the style and very good to me.

DialSquare (4731) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2013
12oz bottle from Publix. Yellow pour with huge pillowy bright white head. Aroma is perfume, spices, floral, lemon. Tastes are coriander, pepper, yeast, grass, straw. Fizzy creamy texture. Ok.

chinchill (4680) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Undated 12 oz bottle into a Piraat tulip glass. A: Pours a slightly hazed golden color. The white head has moderate size and duration but leaves ample lacing on the glass. High carbonation by appearances (and feel). S: Plenty of lemon and other citrus with coriander and a background of grass, hops and wheat. Nice complexity for a 4.5% saison, albeit not very appealing. T- Notably tart and fruity with some lemon zest, coriander, banana, and vague spices. M- light bodied with crisp, high carbonation; dry finish. O- a flavorful Saison that is too spiced to serve as a session beer for some. Nice and reffreshig, nonetheless, on a hot summer day.

Pours a soft and cloudy pale blonde with a sticky two finger tight white head. Very heavily spiced....very heavily. This one needs to take two steps back and breathe. Very raw and earthy aroma with a heavy spice component and very noticeable over ripe fruit character. Heavy with lemongrass and yeast. Sharp and pretty much astringent spice character in the mouth. I get a lot of Sorachi Ace here, may just be the herbal spice notes mixed with overripe fruit....which is what Sorachi Ace smells like to me.

Pours a hazy golden with a medium bubbly white head. Aroma of spicy peppery notes, lots of floral spicy notes. Flavor of lemon, cereal grains, peppery notes and other herbal notes.
