8/24/2010: On my last beer run I realized I haven’t had nearly enough Victory beers yet out of my prior 288. I would venture to say they are the biggest craft brewery in Pa, but I’m not 100% sure on that. I usually am not one for watching interviews on the web, but I just recently saw a really good one on winelibrary with co-owner Bill Covaleski. If you are bored go check it out, really good stuff.

Victory Whirlwind is one of the most lemony smelling witbiers I have ever encountered. A little bit of spice peeks out also. The flavor is tart but pleasing lemon, some coriander, and a little bit of pepper. A bit light on the mouthfeel but it makes this beer very drinkable. I could easily down 4-5 of these on a hot summers day.

Picture of the day: I’m pretty sure someone has to have oral cancer to go through enough containers to make a table like this.
