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.

hopscotch (10198) - 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!

Bottle. Poured a medium and hazy golden color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas of citrus (lemons), yeast, floral and a little bready. Tastes of citrus, light yeast, and light spices. Nice, refreshing and easy to drink. Alcohol content hidden.

mcberko (10041) - 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.

Sammy (9815) - 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.

GT2 (9410) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAY 16, 2011
750mL. The pour is a cloudy, glowing light orange to gold with a towering, massive, sheen, rocky, ice cream head that is about five inches high and rockets out of the oversized Tripel Karmeliet tulip. Huge retention and gobs of lace. Nose is soft vanilla, tangerine, sweet pineapple, peach ice cream with medium saison yeast esters akin to rain and petrichor. Very fresh, fruity, sweet in the nose. Taste is malty, doughy, oatmeal rich, lots of alcohol coming through with vanilla, spiced rum, lemon, tangerine. Very nice stuff albeit not as refreshing as Saison Dupont or even peppery/spicy. This is a bit sweeter, more boozy, lots more body, but retains tons of tropical fruit.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2007
750 ml corked and caged. Pale golden colour, massive rocky beige head. Gorgeous nose, light peach, apricot. lemon, lime, lemongrass and mango. Clovey and appley. Very spicy yeast with green cardamom and rich, sweet baking spices. Body is fairly lean, but could be even more so. Spritzy carbonation, carbonic acidity with hints of lactic and malic tartness as well. Lingering yeastiness on the back. A touch of Saaz hoppiness on the back. Very pleasant and in many ways it reminds me of their triple, which isn’t a bad thing, since I loved that too. Yeasty finish with a flinty/minerally bite on the back.
