Southampton Saison Brun is a "Winter Saison" made with 9 different malts including barley, wheat and rye. Brewed with candi sugar and molasses, it is then cold fermented with a unique yeast for an extraordinary character. O.G. 16.5P, 7.0% ABV

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUN 8, 2011
750mL at RBSG 2011 in Philly. The pour is a cloudy brune with a large, rocky, sheen, thick, tan head. Excellent retention and big lacing. Nose is red licorice and fermented dark fruits similar to Gouden Carolus Christmas. Lots of heavy Belgian Christmas notes. Taste is soft and malty with brown sugar oatmeal more akin to biere de garde. Very nicely bready and doughy. Sweet cherry comes through. Very well done and I guess it’s a style that sort of defies logic: saison being bright and fruity and "brune" being rye, earthy, grainy, heavy. So putting them together really creates a biere de garde. Sweet and malty but not syrupy or cloying.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - JUN 4, 2011
Light and malty nose with notes of white wine, light apple and pear, and some cola. The taste is fairly dry, moderately bitter, lots of perfumy hops, peppery yeast, some apple skins and toffee. Nice.

Koelschtrinker (17349) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 7, 2011
Würzig malziger, dazu passend süßer Antrunk. Im Mittelteil intensiver malzig, ausgewogen, wenn auch etwas trocken im weiteren Verlauf. Intensiv malzig, die Malzigkeit steigert sich dabei noch weter. Intensiv, wirklich gelungen! 12/12/12/13/8/12

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - APR 19, 2011
750 ml bottle, courtesy of Dickinsonbeer, thanks! A hazy dark amber beer with a huge, frothy, fully lasting beige head. The aroma is moderately malty, lightly hoppy, lightly to moderately yeasty, with notes of toasted/roasted grain/bread, herbs, basement, dried fruits, spices (perhaps cinnamon and pepper) and caramel. The flavour is moderately sweet, moderately sour, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, long finish with medium bitterness. Clean, but not very rustic for a Saison, quite complex and spicy/fruity, a little thin, but drinkable on the other hand. Interesting and good beer.

Thanks to Cheeseman for sharing this at the So Long Sea Bass Tasting. Pours a dark red-brown with an off-white head. Nose is malt, rye, fruit, caramel, and spices with hints of candy sugar and brown sugar. Flavor is similar with layer upon layer of flavor. Very enjoyable, medium-bodied saison.

750 ml bottle shared by beastiefan2k. Pour is almost clear copper mahogany, with a smallish off white head. Aroma is wheat malt, some yeast grass floral spice and a soft hay element in the back. Soft, pleasant nose. Taste starts off with a somewhat cloying sweet herbal (which I did not get in the nose), along with the grass and straw. Taste is interesting, but lacks some of the integration and softness of the nose. Palate is medium bodied with a nice soft natural carbonation. Nice one, thanks Eugene.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2010
In short: A toasted Belgian brown ale. Ok beer. Not much of a Saison
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed when about 1 year of age.
The look: Dark amber body topped by a long lasting medium beige head
In long: Nose of dusty yeast, toasted wheat. Taste of very grainy malts, toasted crusty bread with caramel, browned bananas, peppery spices, banana cake, earth, brownies, dried dark fruits, barley candy, brownies, herbs, tobacco. Overall this was a bit harsh and amateurish. A Saison without a rustic character is like a boat without an anchor. That analogy sucks ass but you cannot have an analogy without having an anal and I’m pretty anal about my Saisons. I’d would really like to be able to make sense of what I just wrote.
