2.66/5 rDev -24.9%
Color / Carb = like a very pale Easter egg yellow dye, with moderate foam
Smell = muted fruity / hops
Taste = hits you initially, then lingers (too much) in a bad way (again, not a hop lover); light with dry aftertaste; 1.5 rungs above your standard domestic lager with some added fruit/floral flavor. Refreshing ? Enough, or moreso, barely.
Just noticed the laundry list that Victory now puts out, and my hopes now rest on the Victory Altbier offering that I saw advertised with Sierra Nevada Beer Camp tour / 12 pack coming July-2014.

Has a golden yellow color with a very healthy white foam. Smell is lemon, but the taste is a little weak. There’s a hint of lemon and some light spices in the finish. Otherwise the beer is a little bland. Has a nice carbonated feel, but overall is just okay.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.
I'd make a Swing Kids reference, but no one saw that movie (and I don't fully remember it, myself). Anyway, this stuff pours a partly cloudy straw topped by a finger of white foam. The nose comprises lemon peel, coriander, sweet flowers, and light funky wheat. That lemon is rather strong, but luckily not artificial. The taste holds notes of old and musty lemon (both zest and rind) and a mild blend of vague spices, which are nearly out-shouted by the lemon. The body is a light medium, with a moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, this saison just didn't work. I'm assuming a lackluster yeast performance, but it was just a never-ending blast of bad citrus with occasional bits of muddled spices. Definitely not for me.
