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.

Dammit! I hate it when I am told that I am too verbose. Sometimes I just can’t help it, the beer is just too damn good.

sorry for the cross pollinization

Bottle. Pours golded...slightly cloudy. Aroma is oranges, spices, and some banana. Flavors are fruit, spices, yeast, banana, with lots of carbonation. Is more dry and sharp than expected. I like to age one for a while and see if it softens any.

750. Thanks, Luiss! Pours cloudy coppery dark amber. Comically massive head; lots of fizzy white bubbles that settle down to a rich film with intermittent lacing. Nice looking stuff, if not quite playmate of the month material. Huge nose of the usual oranges, coriander, some nutmeg, a little banana and fresh grass. Aggressive attack: medium body, sharply fizzy carb, assertive flavors. Mid palate of all the usual suspects from the aromatics: orange, coriander, nutmeg, grass, banana. Clean, lightly herbal finish. Hard to tell there’s hop in here. Very freshing and satisfying. Delicious beer. Way to go Southampton once again.

Poured a golden color, pils malt looking, lots of foamy white head, incredible retention, very nice lacing, nice rings. Lots of yeasties at the bottom of the bottle. The aroma was fruity esters, sweet candy, yeast, light grass. The flavor was apples, peaches, coriander, pepper, yeast, saaz? hops. Mouthfeel was significantly carbonated, somewhat dry, bitter finish, not a bad saison. Slightly hot alcohol for the style. Little bit of banana with warmer temperatures.

Poured a hazy yellow color with a very large white head. The aroma was yeasty and dusty with some spice and fruitiness. Fruity flavor of pear and citrus with some more yeasty spices on the finish. Lively mouthfeel and a dry finish.

Suttree (5266) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 27, 2006
Cloudy Orange brown, with a huge, rocky white head. Herbal, grassy aroma - very bread, even a little corny, as well. Flavor is earthy, grassy, and herbal - oregano, perhaps? Nice earthy, dirty texture throughout. Winey notes as it warms. Really good right now, I need to get some more to see how it ages. Thanks, Secret Santa!

Bottles courtesy of hopdog. Cloudy golden yellow with huge soapy/frothy head. Great lacing. Yeasty bread up front, slight farmhouse funk going on. Very floral with plenty of light citrus, mostly lemon in the background. Flavor is all over the place. Yeasty sourdough bread, lemon, grass, flower petals, slighty sweet pale malts, faint hop bitters near the finish. Creamy smooth mouthfeel, just the right amount of carbonation. Finishes very dry, leaving you begging for more. Very nice beer overall.

750ml. bottle. Cloudy golden color with a large soapy white head. Funky, yeasty aroma with some floral notes and a bit of citrus. Starts off mildly sweet, with lots of yeasty spiciness. Dries quickly, with some apricot, citrus, black pepper and a very aggressive carbonation. I really love Southampton’s Saisons.

Amazing creation of a Saison style beer. Afterall the brewer is known for his books of Saison beers. He obviously knows what he’s doing. Lots of frothy bubbles created the head. Major carbonation filled the glass keeping it alive. Smelled of begian yeast and citrus fruits. Light on the mouthfeel and very refrehing. Pleasant spices linger on the aftertaste. One of the best American Saisons made.

Dorwart (2392) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 21, 2006
Large fluffy off-white head of fine bubbles. Reduces to a wavy, dense 1/4 thick foam. Tons of carbonation. Spicey, yeasty, grassy, typical saison aroma. Color is a medium golden orange. Clean and very smooth taste. Little fizzy palate. Light malts and a hint of alcohol. More spices and light lemon. This is some very tasty stuff. Dry and slightly bitter. Creamy butter in the flavor. Dry and lingering bitter finish. Darn, this is a very tasty stuff. A little on the expensive side but worth it once in a while.
