The Third of Three

After opening the Dogfish Head Saison du BUFF, I felt the need to open the Victory.
I had sample all three in one sitting, and finally trying a bottle of each reinforced what I thought. The Stone was herbally, the Dogfish Head was the bitter one and the Victory was the balanced brew.
The beer looks golden with a nice poured head- very similar to the other two. The aroma was lemony, with a slight touch of hops and of the herbs used.
The taste is similar to the smell. The lemon jumps out at you, followed by a small bouquet of the sage/Rosemary/other herbs, then finished off by the hops.
The alcohol is hidden in the complexity of the other tastes. This has the best carbonation level, making it a really nice beer to drink.

Overall, this was my favorite of the three- but I would have no problem drinking any of them.
