look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle poured into a nonic.

Pours a very bright hazy yellow color with a finger of foam that laces the glass. Aroma is yeasty, spicy, phenolic.

Lemony, spice, coriander flavors. Thin bodied, finishing dry with a big of lingering grainy aftertaste. Quite refreshing, but a touch simple.

Overall, another solid offering from Victory.

Pours a hazy honey straw color with a fluffy pure white head. Looks the part for a saison.

The aroma is sweet and spicy. Noticable clove and bubblegum. Fairly strong grassy hop aroma as well. Overall, nice but a little light.

The taste is of a dry crackery pils base with some honey sweetness. Clove and bubblegum spice. Lemon peel adds a touch of tartness. A strong peppery and grassy hop profile gives an American stamp to this brew.

The feel is light and dry. Spot on for the style. Good balance between sweet and bitter.

A good session brew, refreshing.

This beer pours with basically no head, there is a faint ring of lacing around the edge of the glass. The beer itself is a pale yellow (really reminiscent of BMC) and just slightly hazy. The nose is decent, hints of some yeasty, fruity, funkiness. The taste is yeasty up front with a slight fading bitterness. This is not a sour beer, but there certainly some non-hop related, yeasty bitterness going on. It is ok, but I am getting a lot of chalkiness left on my palate.

Overall I was not at all impressed by this beer. The beer is not particularly attractive looking and has some strange chalky feel coating my mouth. I like victory, but this beer is a definite pass. Very glad I didn't but the sixer.

Pours frothy, foamy and highly carbonated. Pale sunny yellow, very hazy.

Smells of clove, coriander, beautifully spiced. Not very citrusey, which I like
Taste is very pleasing. Feels heavier than I expected seeing that is a Session Ale at only 4.5. Clean taste, very spiced.Well carbonated with a lingering finish. Great work by VIctory yet again
