Picked up this one as part of a mixed 6 at the local store. Generally like Saisons and have had pretty good luck with Victory. Okay appearance but nailed the smell, gives you that good Saison vibe. Taste however returns to okay. Not bad, decent Saison but nothing special. Probably would not get the beer again but would certainly not turn one down.

Serving type: bottle

look: 3.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

App: pours yellow-gold like a filtered wheat ale; tame lacing, with no sediment

N: grapefruit bomb, citrus pith, lemon and clementine zest, melon, cedar, white flowers, white pepper, salicylic acid.

T: lemongrass, grapefruit, clementine, lemon peel, white wine vinegar.

M: dry, tart, zesty, slightly metallic, buttery filmy, finish a la movie theatre popcorn, sharp initially ending with rich undertones.

O: a pleasantly bright, aromatic and tart saison! It's the love child of Australian Sauvignon Blanc and oaked, Napa Chardonnay.

Pairings: Dry enough for fish, white fowl and mixed nuts, bright enough for salads, fruits and cheeses, serve early in a meal. Not sweet, but citrusy and acidic enough for white wine appropriate foods.
