3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I’m a little puzzled by the high rating of this one. First off, it simply isn’t a saison. It’s just not. The aroma is pleasant, but too perfumy. The flavor had tons of flowers and an almost artificial, rich, overpowering, honey-like sweetness. Not my bag.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber with a large off-white head. Aroma is lime and lime peel, lightly floral, with a good amount of spice. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter, with a decent amount of alcohol. Finish is dry and alcoholic, with a load of spice. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Not a big fan of this.

Bottle. Unfortunately not up to the Southampton’s usual standards. Flat and hazy gold pour. Aroma of honey, rose hips, wet grain, floral. Taste is sweet, some floral and grassy notes but mainly honey. Palate is flat and a bit sweet. I hope this was an unfortunate bad bottle.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (750 ml). Shared by Julien/Benoit/Pier-Luc, thanks guys! Hazy yellow/golden with no head and no lacing. Aroma of rose petals, yeast, honey, sweetness notes and herbal presence. Taste is moderately sweet with yeast, floral notes, honeyed malt and herbal presence. Completely flat. Medium body. There’s a good basis here, but carbonation would have really helped this one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours rich golden color with a bit of haze and a couple of fingers of foam. The nose has some nice floral notes, honey, belgian yeast and bread dough. The mouthfeel is round and a touch sticky with lots of sweet malt and floral grassy notes... touch of added complexity brought in by the yeast esters but nothing too exciting.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle shared by derek, thanks! pours hazy chestnut orange with a frothy white head that dissipates to the edge and leavy a soapy film throughout. nose is resin and straw hops with a rosey flower top that makes it quite perfume-y. taste is similar. light, refreshing rosewater with a hint of bitter straw hope to balance. yes, i am a girl... that MAY have something to do with why i am loving this floral light brew.
