On draft @ Capones with Mad_indian. Pours hazy orange with a good size white head. Aroma of flowers, perfume, and sweet malts. The flavor is quite floral, sweet malts, and biscuit good body and mouthfeel. Well done.

complicated in taste yet demonstrative. flowery and rich with lime and honey sweetness balanced with some earthy malt and licorice spice. a bit of grass adds freshness. it is busy perhaps refreshing and satisfying if confusing.

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.

Bottle sample from notes. Pours a slightly hazy orange golden color with a medium sized fluffy white head. The aroma has sweet floral notes, herbal, some light citrus and pale malts. The flavor has sweet honey, floral without being soapy, lavender, honeysuckle, lemon citrus, yeast, light spice with an earthy funk. Medium bodied, dry finish with some mild bitterness and funk lasting to the finish.

RamyG4 (320) - , New Jersey, USA - OCT 2, 2013
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 shared by JulienHuxley, thanks a lot! Pour is completly flat, hazy golden. Aroma of roses, floral, light grassy notes, honey, sweetness. Taste is mainly honey, rose water, floral, a bit grassy, sweet. Medium body. Wish i can taste it again with some carbonation because i had good expectation for this one.

JulienHuxley (3423) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2013
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.

tom10101 (3062) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 5, 2013
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.

Lukaduke (2360) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUL 10, 2013
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.

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.
