Helios (V Saison)

22 oz bottle from Hop City, Atlanta, GA, USA. This the same beer as the now retired V-Saison and is retailing around the Atlanta area for a very reasonable $2.99 in some places.
Body is a golden clear one with some nice persistent carbonation. Head is high and huge.
Quite a large dose of lemony funk in the nose with a touch of soap too.
Tastes are milder than the nose might suggest. Sweeter notes combine with the soapy citrus flavors to even things out a bit. Finish accentuates the soap character. Aftertaste also has a very bitter parts to it as well. A little more pine sol character too.
Interesting and perhaps more drinkable than the soapy notes would suggest. A bit of a weird combo of sweetness, soap, light funk and medicinal parts. Strange but worth a try.
