nealblind (841) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - JUL 19, 2014
12oz bottle. Amber pour some frothy head. Aroma of tangy fruity dead Belgian yeast big malts. Tastes like a doppelbock with some Belgian yeast. bready. Sticky palate. Some skunky german-type hops coming through. probably was good in 750ml. This mass produced 6pack is garbage.

PapaSkeetSkeet (809) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Light amber, hazy, thin (1mm film) eggshell head with lively bubbles. Aroma is of hay, grass field, hint of old dry cheese (Parmesan?). Bit of soap. Body is medium, and syrupy, especially due to diffuse, prickly carbonation not pulling its weight. Flavor is dried/baked raw grain (wheat/oat), sharp grasses, again, bit of soap, touch of nectar sweetness. 12oz actually seems like a lot; not something I’m tempted to toss down. OK.

jcnielsen (2125) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle. Pours an orangish color with white head. Malty, cereal oats, slight fruity aromas. Very fruit forward flavor that I wasn’t expecting. Fruity, jolly rancher, oats flavors. I was really excited about this beer, because not a lot of breweries make biere de garde style. I wasn’t expecting the strong fruity flavor, which seemed off.

I don’t have the opportunity to try Southampton beers that often, in my market, but I have been consistently impressed whenever I do. Straight away, this beer is beautiful to look at, presenting a brilliant gold/light copper color with great clarity and moderate head retention. The enticing nose offers aromas of spiced orange peel and sweet bread. Medium bodied, this delightfully drinkable ale offers well-balanced flavors of sweet, spicy malt and light hop bitterness, riding on a slightly sticky mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. At 6.5 % ABV, this is rather dangerously drinkable!

devman171 (976) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle, aroma is light spice and mild caramel. Taste is similar, a pretty nice blend of lager and saison.

Scrapersnbeer (1486) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 11, 2014
Aroma of orange peel and lemon grass and sweet spices. Hazy orange. Mainly a dry sweetness, tart fruit, and very bready - an element reflected in the body, which is crispy and heavy. This beer feels like any number of Americanized wheat ales released in summer, only with some farmhouse aspects mixed in for kicks.

Southampton Biere De Mars has a thick, spongy, white head, and a hazy, bubbly, amber appearance, and a pretty substantial lace curtain left behind. The aroma is evocative of wheat, for sure, but one will pick up subtle spices, sweetness, and a wonderful toasted malt. Taste is of sweet, spiced bread and a touch of hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and soft, and Southampton Biere De Mars finishes semi-dry, a bit alcoholic, and quite drinkable. RJT
