12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Has a bite but very nice. A few flowery aromas and a hint of spice. Just a little bit of perfume. ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a strong Malt & herb aroma with some grass and coriander thrown in. I like the smell.
Appearance- The beer is a murky amber color with a large white head. Looks great
Taste- Has a nice floral and malt flavor with some bitterness.
Palate- A light bodied brew with moderate carbonation. I really enjoyed this beer, if I can find it again I will buy it.

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. J_man (1017) - Tustin, California, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Strong, spicy, funky aroma with notes of hay and barnyard. Crystal clear pale yellow with a finely laced and foamy white head. The spicy aroma comes into vivid detail in the taste with white pepper, coriander and lavendar tastes along side a lemony citrus flavor. The barnyard Brett funkiness shows up too, subtly at first and then growing stronger. Finishes dry and very lightly sweet with a lasting Brett funk. Wow, this is not what I was expecting! Very surprising and tasty! drostj (113) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - APR 20, 2014
Bottle. Pale, clear yellow with a light lacy head. Rich, grassy aroma with hints of spice, apple and pear. Slight bitter taste up front followed by a light taste of spice with some citrus. Dry crisp feel in the mouth with a nice slightly bitter aftertaste. Unlike a lot of beers that taste like an alcoholic orange soft drink, the citrus and spice in this beer are light and complement the taste of the ale without overwhelming it. Good job. jamestulloch (4211) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle from Drinkmonger. Hazy pale golden body with a thick white head. Lively carbonation. Great lacing. Aroma of vine tomatoes, lemons, cardamom and bay leaf. Refreshing flavour of mint, cucumber, grass and pink grapefruit. Thin body with a watery texture. Sharp fizz. Crisp and delicious.
