A: Clear and watery

S: The worst smelling beer I have ever smelt. It smelt of oil and plastic, I literally could not believe what I was smelling.

T: The taste followed the smell and I felt as though I had just drank melted plastic with oil. As the beer warmed up there was a definite increase in the peppercorn taste.

M: Thin and watery.

O: I can safely say this was the worst beer I've ever had. I'm not sure if this was a skunk batch or what, but I could not believe Victory would release a beer like that.

Pours a clear golden color with a fizzy white head that leaves a ring of lacing.

Smells of lemony citrus and some floral notes.

Tastes of the lemon with some grainy malts and a bit of hops. Lemon zest notes lead off before some floral hops come through. Grainy malts come next with a bit of sweetness. A touch of pepper and funk add towards the end before one last kick of citrus finishes it.

Moithfeel is medium-light with a crisp amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a tasty saison and gets a bit of a bonus for keeping the alcohol down.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. 6/21

Pours very pale gold, a little hazy, 1/4 inch white head. Peppery spicy belgian yeast nose. Tart, citrus taste with a peppery hop. Spicy. Buzzes in the mouth during and after. Lively saison. Snaps to a close.
