3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at RB INDY 2/25/06. Pours hazy yellow with a white bubbly head. Aroma is strong of feminine soaps. Much emphasis on flowers and perfume. Flavor is huge on the spice and tastes like eating flower would. Flavor is too much for me. Mouthfeel is and it really ’attacks’ the tongue.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lots of floral aromatics. Main complaint is that it was nearly totally flat, which took away from what this could be. Super unique experience. Definitely worth trying if given the chance.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pour, much thanks to Chris for sharing. Pours a cloudy orange color with a patchy head. Funky aroma with flowers, spice and dry fruit. Initially spicy flavor with a big lavender taste to it. Long bran finish. Drinkable for sure, but if I were to describe this beer with one word : strange.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, thanks to Homer. Hazy orange pour with frothy white head, irregular lacing, okay retention. Aroma: herbal, floral, cardboard. Taste: caramel and stale flowers. Herbal, orange citrus, marmalade. Moderately sweet at the front, but followed by a sharp, botanical honeyed finish. Palate: medium body, average carbonation. Overall: being diplomatic about this, this is ... interesting.

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.

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.
