In early 2014, we at Victory and Brewery Vivant confronted a situation that called for a trademark agreement. We worked diligently together to turn what could have been an ugly situation into a delicious beer. This Victory Bon Vivant Saison became the perfect vehicle to express our mutual triumph.
Working in collaboration with Brewery Vivant, we created this complex saison to have a distinct cherry flavor that’s balanced by a dry bitterness and finishes with notes of orange peel and lemon zest. “Bon Vivant” which in French means “one who lives well” pays homage to the people who enjoy the good things in life, especially food and drink.
Malt: Pilsner, Wheat, Rye
Hops: ADHA 529, ADHA 871
A distinct aroma of cherry precedes hints of grape and lemon in this straw-colored, complex saison. Intense cherry flavors are balanced by a lightly dry bitterness before finishing with notes of lemon zest and orange peel.
