Cloudy yellow pour with a very large beige head. Belgian yeast strikes you, with some light citrus notes. High in carbonation, and just overall good drinkin. Nice middle session beer.

750 corked and caged bottle poured an orange golden color with a thin coating of white head that fell right off. Aroma has yeast, sweet grains, pokes of dark fruit, and some farmhouse touches. Mouth feel is fairly full with average carbonation. Flavor is fairly full, grains, some sweetness, wet flowers, and a bit of alcohol on the finish.

Bottle courtesy of my collegue Håkan. Thank you! And thank you to the fine folks at the Top Hops Beer Shop who help me reserve some good beers for my collegue to pick up. Pours hazy yellow with a rather big frothy white head that slowly dissipates while leaving lots of spotty trace on the glass. Smell is tiny fruiuty, slightly estery and tiny phenolic with freshly baked white bread, hay, lemon zest, pears, dry soil, unripe banana, white pepper corns, grape skins and hints of cloves, cilantro and lemon juice. Taste is tiny sweet, tiny bitter, slightly spicy, tiny fruity, slightly estery and tiny phenolic with crackers, freshly baked white bread, banana bread, marzipan, hay, dry soil, white pepper corns, pear skins, lemon zest, oatmeal flakes, and hints of alchol. Mouthfeel is soft, slightly dry, very tiny spicy astringent, very tiny boozy and medium bodied. Finish is slightly bitter, slightly spicy, slightly estery and slightly phenolic with white bread, oatmeal flakes, hay, dry soil, orange zest, lemon zest, white pepper corns, coriander, banana leaves, pear skins, grape skins and hints of alcohol. Dangerously easy to drink and refreshing. Another impressive Southampton offering.

Great saison. Nice sweetness and carbonation, feels heavier than most saisons. Not too funky. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mcberko (5919) - 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.

Minderbinder (1671) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 26, 2013
Bottle 750ml. Pours clear golden with high frothy white head. Very intense carb. Aroma is of saison yeast, fruits. Taste is of spices, smoke, citrus, slight acidity. Palate: Light-medium body. Overall: A bit bland and nominal. No big flaw, but nothing outstanding here. Would not seek this again.

tom10101 (2613) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 25, 2013
Bottle (750 ml). From Tom, thanks! Slightly hazy bright golden/orange with a frothy white head and good lacing. Aroma of Farmhouse yeast, smoked notes, malt sweetness and light fruity notes. Taste is slightly sweet and about the same as aroma. Medium body. Good carbonation. Moderately dry finish. Good Saison, but nothing special here. Drinkable, but the smokey presence isn’t very interesting.
