Heavy wheat and oats in nose. Mild sulfur. Mild lemon and floral notes. Pepper and citrus peel added in flavor. Very light and crisp. ads135 (5021) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 7, 2014
A very nice session ale. Light, floral, and fruity with a balanced amount of spice. Bitterness is also understated. kidmartinek (5007) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 1, 2013
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.

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: I’d 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. Cavie (4805) - Arlington, Texas, USA - AUG 4, 2014
BTBF. Clear yellow appearance. Bit of a tart aroma. Fruity flavor, spicy, dry and yeast.

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.

Sampled at ESBLS. It poured a clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma was earthy, spicy wheat malts, citrus, hops with pear esters and black pepper, ginger notes. The taste was of medium hops, some bitterness, light fruity esters, with pale malts and a dry finish.
