I feel like I liked this a lot more when i was younger, but now it sort of comes across like lavender soap, with some light fresh Belgian phenol and banana ester, sharp and tart with hints of mint.

Golden. A bit lighter in color than many saisons. Smells better than it tastes which is a bit concerning. Overall a tad disappointed in this Victory beer.

Crisp, herbal, tart, and earthy with a mild funk. The jury is still out.
