Tis the saision...

I just love Saison or Farmhouse Ales. They taste fresh and natural and well, they are just plain delicious. Victory Helios Ale weighs in at 7.5% abv. It pours gold with a thick white head. Cloves, banana, and mild citrus aromas. Nice spice flavors from the first sip. Generous hoping gives it a decent citrus bite. Black pepper and cloves dominate the flavor profile, but don't overwhelm you. Needs a touch more carbonation and is a little bit one dimensional. Get's drier and drier with each sip yet it remains very drinkable with a lemon tartness that is perfect for summer. This would pair well with grilled fish or shrimp and certainly cheese. This is a nice American version of one of my favorite Belgian beer styles. I pretty much like everything coming out of Victory.
