COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Southampton Saison Deluxe is a special version of this Belgian Farmhouse classic. This unusually complex and refreshing ale is brewed to stand the test of time. Its fresh, vibrant flavors will change gracefully with time.

Pours golden yellow with big white head. Smells very fresh with wheat, fruit, flowers, some earth and funk too. Taste has wheat body, spice, fruity hops, and light interesting funk. Med-full bodied. Prolonged and slightly sticky after taste. Balanced.

dcschiller (2201) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 3, 2012
(750ml bottle from blklab2007). Pours hazy golden color with massive white head. Active carbonation. Aroma is belgian yeast, candied sugar, lemon and some pepper. Taste is sweet. Meesium bodied with a syrup quality. A nice beer, but much too sweet for a saison.

750 mL bottle as pictured. Pours a hazy gradient yellow/orange with lots of bubbles and a white head. Smells very lemony. Spicy taste and a very light mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Gription79 (2157) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 16, 2011
750ml bottle. This is a sweet saison, the pila malt is the dominating flavor. Touch of spice, some buttery notes are present and it is distracting. Not a bad beer but not very interesting.

Reynolds314 (2077) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Been sitting on this bottle perhaps a bit too long but still very good. Taste is spicy and crisp with nice floral and spice elements. Light lemony esters and a bit of cardboard but still drinkable.

750 ml bomber, the best base saison, very carbonated and crisp, This might be a little past cause it tastes a little cardboardy but it is so crisp and delicious. I am pretty delirious. AH FACK.

arminjewell (5715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Pour is hazy yellow with white head, aroma has notes of biscuit, fruity lemon, some grape notes as well, hints of biscuit, grass and a touch of honey. Taste is really nice and refreshing with notes of pleasant grass, biscuit and honey, some nice fruity notes and spice complementing each other, finishing fairly dry and spicy.

KyotoLefty (5894) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 1, 2011
750 ml bottle. Deep, cloudy, glowing golden with a fine, thick head. Lovely. Spicy, mineral aroma, lemons, yeasty and fragrant. Flavor is creamy, fruity (lemons, white grapes), spicy, lot of yeast character, minerals, very dry, especially in the finish, with good bitterness as well. Restrained fruity sweetness. A bit too much alc9oholo showing in the finish. Resembles a Dupont more than any non-Belgian saison I have had. Wonderful.

Refreshing and crisp. No heavy hops here. Stone fruits - peaches or apricots. Not as carbonated as I would have expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jzzbassman (1466) - New Albany, Mississippi, USA - JUL 28, 2011
Corked and caged. Pours a hazy orange with a giant head that takes forever to allow a full pour and settles to nice lace. Aroma of hay, cantaloupe, grapefruit, and yeast. Bready, softly sweet and sugary flavor with essence of lemon, light yeast and earthiness. A bit aggressive in carbonation, but a very enjoyable beer.
