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.

Apricot colored brew raising a big bubbled white head. Nose is yeasty with lots of tropical fruit. Flavor is big and fruity with some peppery notes. A little grassiness also. Pretty good brew.

Growler courtesy of Azurelimits. Served in a Bruery tulip. Pours a light copper color with a mild white head and a bit of lacing as it goes down my glass. The nose brought some mild hay along with a bit of earth. Those were the strongest components, though there was also a bit of clove and banana in the background. SOme additional spicing as well. Flavor had a really nice earthy presence and amplified everything else from the nose. Good bit of light grain and hay as well. Body was medium with good carbonation and a slightly-dry finish.

Tap at Max’s. Fairly disappointing effort from Southampton. It was a bit too sweet and the yeast was quite phenolic, very peppery, I even picked up some coriander and lemon... strange.

On draught at the Publick House. The posted abv is 6%. Note that this is the Saison and not the bottled Saison Deluxe that I think a lot of people are rating under this beer. Arrived at the table a mostly clear orange-gold with a thin linen white head that faded to a film after a couple of sips and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of citrus, apples, and mild spice. The flavor is really outstanding and absolutely spot on for a Saison with lots of citrus, apples, light malt, spice and a bit peppery. Light to medium body and smooth on the palate. Wonderful.

Leighton (11122) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2010
Bottle from 2005 at the 2010 Funky 6. Pours hazy amber with a slight head. Sweet-smelling aroma with honey and grassy hops. Nice flavor, with bready malts and yeast, understated sweetness, a mild herbal quality, and some grassy bitterness. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Finishes with floral notes, spices, light acidity and light sweetness. Very delicate and delicious.

10/2/10. 750mL bottle. Light funky aroma with orange peel and spice. Light funky saison flavor. Not bad!

SHIG (3590) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - SEP 25, 2010
Bottle thanks to Markwise: Poured a hazy haystack yellow with a white head. The aroma was sour and quite barnyard/harvest. Taste was refreshing fruit very carbonated with fresh grains as well.

750. Pours bright yellow with a huge white head-very effervescent. I smell soap, a bit of older hops. Taste like this bottle is a bit past it’s prime. Older hop notes dominate with a bit of lemon/citrus present. Lots of alcohol for a saison. A bit of freshness coming through but I may have held on to this a bit too long. Would love to have a fresh one.

From a 750ml bottle. Pours with a thick white head. Slightly hoppy, slightly citrusy, but not too much of either. Had a Belgian yeasty taste that I can’t put my finger on thats a little stronger than I tend to like, but still an all around excellent beer.

Pours a hazy golden color with thick frothy white head. Aroma is light spice, clove, apple, and citrus. Very balanced and well-done.
