COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Southampton Saison is a faithful rendition of this classic "farmhouse" style ale. Originally brewed for consumption during the summer months, its slight tartness and intense fruitness make it a most refreshing drink anytime of year.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2003
Mild, earthy and vinous tones in this beer. Crisp, refreshing and full-flavored...a hint of grapefruit as well as. Nice head on a slightly cloudy yellowish body. Perfectly balanced hoppy finish.

notalush (4859) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2003
Pale gold with a slight copper tint - musty, cellared aroma, with earthy notes, and a slight alcohol presence - flavor is tart up front, with some mellow fruit flavor and sweetness making an appearance, mostly white grapes - this makes way for a slight alcohol flavor, tiny malt presence, and lots of earthy, grainy, grassy flavors leading into the crisp, slightly peppery finish, along with the reappearance of a slight tartness - quite a bit of hops in the finish as well - this is clean and quenching - great for a warm spring or summer evening.

TAR (2497) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - MAY 28, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2003 Revision from latest, much fresher vintage: Clear lemon hue. Gleaming white blooming foam. Zippy, metallic aroma of flowers, cilantro, grass, perfume, flagship juicy Styrians, mashed white grape, mint, yeast, and a dash of ginger and peppery alcohol. Softened phenol, hay, and leather notes. Assertively dry-hopped. Daintily fluffy body quickly becoming creamy and round. Grassy flavors are followed by honey, perfume, medicine, leather, rounded tangerine skin notes, lemon, and a gentle herbal bitterness. Only a trace of pale malt. Gingerly spicy. Cleans up with a touch of acidity, tea and grassy notes alongside a softer phenolic, chalky backdrop. A fuller body, less estery, yeasty aroma, and more funky pale malt to assist the acidity, and delicate bitterness would separate this shining example from any in its class.

Oakes (12626) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 19, 2001
Herbal, soft maltiness/yeastiness; slightly tart finish; earthy, orangey. A step away from greatness.
