Purchased a 12 oz as part of a mixed six because I have liked Victory beers I have tried lately. Had the typical appearance of the saison but the smell seemed strange which had me guessing but the beer was very good. Surprised me that is was at 6.8, did not seem any different than the 5% saisons I have had and the higher alcohol content has value in my book. Enjoyed the beer and was disappointed that is has been retired, would have purchased again.

Poured from a bottle into a Samuel Adams Boston Lager pint glass. Bought as a single for $2.29

A - Clear straw color. Not much head or lacing with this beer

S - Tangy, citrus smell. Maybe a hint of spices and mint

T - Tastes herbal/spicey. Bitter aftertaste

M - On the high end with carbonation, but felt pretty light on the tongue. Went down smoothly

Overall, I thought this was a decent beer. I'm a big fan of Dog Fish Head Brewery and saw this as a single so I picked it up. I wouldn't purchase it again (as I can see they don't make it anymore), but I'm glad I picked up this single.
