A - Golden orange with a thick white head. Great retention! Leaves some lacing around the glass.

S - Very malt forward and some sweet bread, some pine in there. Some Lemongrass.

T - First a little hit of malt, then the pine comes through with a touch of grass, lemon and grapefruit. Great!

M - Medium carbonation, goes down very smoothly and alcohol hidden well. Finishes dry.

You know, I'm a little hesitant to review this beer because I remember it being better in the past. Oh well, here goes:

A: Very good. Orange-amber with a one-inch head. Leaves plenty of lacing, too. However, I have to comment that the carbonation appears lacking. 4/5

S: Very funky - almost like old milk. I just confirmed from Victory's website, however, that they used wild Belgian yeast in making this beer. THAT explains a lot. Can detect caramel and amber malt, Belgian yeast, citrus and grapefruit. However, the beer has an old milky smell imparted from the Belgian yeast. Kind of a turn-off. 3/5

T: Just alright. Taste follows the nose. Lots of caramel, toffee from the malt, lemony and grapefruit from the hops, stale bread and milk from the wild yeast. Would've been great except for the last part. 3.5/5

M: Good. Nice and smooth. 4/5

O: A solid beer but I really didn't like the addition of Belgian wild yeast. 3.5/5.0
