22 oz bomber pours a mostly clear gold color with an ample cap of fine-bubbled white head. Decent retention and lace.

Nose is a really nice fruity yeast/grassy hop combo. Malts are a little sweeter and toastier than you'd see in a a perfect farmhouse beer, but overall has a good aroma.

Taste shows the good yeast/hop relationship again in the flavor...I really like the aggressive hop flavor with the lightly tart, fruity yeast. Malts still could use a defter touch I think and just let the yeast and hops do their thing, but as it is, they add a little sweetness that is not altogether unpleasant. This is one of the better American made saisons, very good brew.

08/08/13 From bottle. Surprisingly different from the Victory Sunrise Weiss. This is much more robust & spicy. Very assertive, yet enjoyable. Ever have a very BIG friend. The kind that almost scares people that don't know him? This is like that guy. A gentle giant as it were. Make room.
