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.

FatPhil (13044) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 27, 2008
750ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki)
Pale gold, tiny froth of a head once the initial pile had subsided. Corny, sweet aroma. Toffee-like sweet taste, sticky on the lips. Becomes a bit more treacly after a while. Not an amazing saison - not crisp or fresh, but a tempting succulent body and soft malty finish. Spoilt only by too much sticky sweetness.

argo0 (12924) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 30, 2007
(750ml bottle) Large, fluffy white head that gradually diminishes to reveal a lightly hazed straw body. Aroma is moderately sweet, rose, orange, some coriander. Taste is moderately sweet, coriander, perfume, orange peel, some herbal/grassy, peach. Dry finish. Medium body, light some acidity. But for the sweetness, I would think this excellent.

mcberko (12863) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 24, 2013
750mL bottle, pours a hazy golden with a very large white head. Aroma brings out loads of farmhouse notes, fruity esters, and some Belgian yeast. Flavour is very similar, with loads of farmhouse notes, Belgian yeast, a little banana, and slight fruity esters. Very farmhouse-dominant and yeasty, with a yeasty, fruity finish. Low-to-medium carbonation for a saison. Excellent stuff.

(750ml bottle) Pours a cloudy yellow body with a huge white head. Aroma of orange peel, mustiness, lemon, florals, and toasted malt. Flavor of lemon, yeast, and floral hops with a soft mouthfeel.

Christian (12569) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2007
Slightly cloudy golden with a big white head. Nice complex, fresh aroma, with orange and spice. Dry and fruity flavour with spice and some bitterness that could be alcohol, spice or subdued hops.

Lubiere (12553) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2007
A hzay golden saison with a thick lacing white head. Aroma of catnip, dandelion, herbs, very complex and enticing. In mout, a light sweet malt with dryish hops, mineral notes, and warming alcohol. Notes of Brett/leather. Rich and complex...another winner. Tasted at "Montréal YeHA! Party 2006". Dec. 16 2006.

bierkoning (12024) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - FEB 18, 2008
Corked bottle, tasted @jbrus’s place. Honey color, tiny lumps of yeast floating. Flowery citric hops and fresh cheese in the somewhat flowery aroma. Citric, "funky", cheesy flavor with grapefruit. Grassy, hopbitter aftertaste. Lovely beer!

jcwattsrugger (12010) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUN 14, 2008
750ml bottle-pours a big foamy to rocky off white head and yellow color. Aroma is barnyard, yeasty, some earthy cheese notes, saaz/grassy hops. A Belgian Golden [Duvel] comes to mind. Taste is barnyard, yeasty, light malt-some sweetness, saaz-spicy hops. Dryish finish, a lot of carbonation. [taste reminds me of a slightly sweet Duvel]. Nice beer as an American Farmhouse style. Occasional. Thanks to jwc215(BA) for sharing.

Bottle. [thanks to my good friend, Vicky, for bringing this from the States]
Pours a clear golden yellow with a giant white head. It is creamy on top, and further down, it is very bubbly. There is an amazing amount of bubbles surging upwards. Nice spicy flavour. Ginger, oranges, coriander, wheat, yeast, lemons, melons and barnyard. Lively mouthfeel, but still rather creamy. Flavour is lightly vinious, more than other Saisons, I’ve tried. Flavours include a nice fruity hoppiness, lots of ginger, lemons. Very dry finish with a light tartness. I had to rate this before it became available in Denmark (which it is tomorrow :o) ). Really a good Saison, but the Belgians are funkier and more complex.

BeerandBlues2 (11825) - Escondido, California, USA - AUG 24, 2008
750 mL bottle received via Secret Santa July 2008. Pours hazy orange with a large, rocky, white head, mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (grain, hay, straw, meal), average hops (herbs, grass), heavy yeast (horse blanket, barnyard, earth) with notes of pear, wood, and pepper. Medium bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a chalky finish. Average duration, light sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.
