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.

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.

jcwattsrugger (11233) - 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.

Tmoney99 (11103) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 9, 2006
Bottle. Poured hazy amber with a huge fizzy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Heavy yeasty citrus aroma. Light to medium body with a dry texture and soft carbonation. Medium sour flavor with a medium sour finish of moderate duration. This is a standout beer.

bierkoning (10563) - 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!
