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.

Bottle from 03 that one of the SH guys was pouring from at their booth at BCTC. Pours a light gold with a thin white head. Light lemony fruit aromas. Crisp and light with some nice caramel and plum tones, finishing clean and dry.

Pipper (325) - Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2009
Pours a slightly darker hay color with white head. Spicy aftertaste mingled with a rose undertone and aroma. Great thirst quenching flavor. Prefer this to the Saison Dupont and wasn’t expecting to.

Another old rating. Aroma was some belgian and yeastiness. Flavor was smooth but maybe a little oxidized. I like all southampton saisons.

radiomgb (2220) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 20, 2009
Golden-orange in colour with a long lasting white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is of apples, citrus, lots of yeast, brett, must with some light spice. The flavour is yeasty, some apples, some spice, lots of brett, quite musty. Dry mouthfeel, medium body, medium/high carbonation. Finishes lightly bitter, sweet, lingering.

Very good but I can see that the end is near for this one. Starting to thin out over the past 3 years but still holding up well.

750ml bottle from Beers Of The World in Rochester, New York.
Opened on July 5, 2008.
No date (Southampton Bottling).

750ml caged&corked bottle shared with ealdent. Pours a deep, hazy yellow/gold with a very thick white head. The aroma is excellent for a farmhouse: some malts, some yeast, some must, some grassiness. The flavor follows the aroma: a light amount of residual malt sweetness, breadiness, cry and crisp grassy bitterness, and some pleasant yeasty qualities. The finish is dry with a nice bit of spicy, peppery phenols and spicy, grassy hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is very well carbonated giving it a spritzy and light body. Overall, a fantastic saison - just as great as any authentic version from Belgium. Delicious.

arjoseph (639) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 30, 2008
Bottle generously donated to our bathtub soiree, GABF 2007. 2005 vintage. Big foamy fluffy head is white and sits above a hazy orange beer. Smell is lively with light yeast effervescence; you can feel the carbon dioxide being released into your nose. White pepper at first and a little lambic-ish acidity from the yeast. Middle is citric melon with darker yeasty qualities, finishing into a light honeydew, dry white pepper, cardamom, and other dry spices. Very nice texture, and a nice balance of the citric fruity aspects and the yeasty, spicy ones: the yeastiness doesn’t swallow the freshness, but it isn’t full-juicy and has a nice sophistication. Nice beer.
