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.

Sammy (11242) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 21, 2007
Smells and looks like a saison. Barnyard aroma is there, as if by custom. SIgnificant head on lighter colour body. The surprise is the hoppiness moderated by fainter spice. Tasted closer to an ESB. An entirely different saison than the regular saison, according to my notes.

hopscotch (10644) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 17, 2006
Bottle... Cloudy yellow ale with a huge, fluffy, white head. Good retention. Spicy phenols and fuzzy fruit in the predominantly earthy nose; faint notes of vanilla and tangerine. Bitter and tart flavor. Lots of herbal, spicy hops. A touch of funk with no heavy alcohol. Medium to full-bodied with prickly carbonation. Finishes crisp, spicy and medium bitter. <B.Cheers to Growler for splitting this big bottle with me!
