Now were talking. The bad-beer portion of the evening being finished, we kicked off the real tasting in spectacular fashion. 2001 Vintage shared with muzzlehatch, capFlu, radiomgb, DumDum, Rastacouere and tiggmtl. Great complex fruity earthy sour vinegar spicy aromas invite you into this hazy orange-amber concoction. Green apples mix with lemon and a little pepperiness and then a beautiful dry, sour finish. Wonderful.

muzzlehatch (4942) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 9, 2004
Beer 2001, shared with Capflu, tiggmtl, Rastacouere, Radiomgb, beerhugger, and DumDum in Ottawa. 750 ml bottle. Luminous orange-amber, nearly opaque, with a fair bit o head. Fresh flowers, delicate nutmeg, cardamom and cinnamon, ginger and vanilla, are masterfully blended into an intoxicating, perfumy monstrous nose. Imbibing, an immensely sharp, sweet and sour apple and honey character wraps around and transforms the tongue. Odd eddies of more pungent herbs (onion? pepper?) seem to whisper upward, through the full, living body. A masterpiece, a Space Odyssey indeed.

CapFlu (5123) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 7, 2004
(22oz bottle) Poured a cloudy orange body with minute sedimentation. Nose was orange-peel, vinegar and floral. Fizzy flavours of white pepper, yeast, peach and lemon. Truly a remarkable recipe and delightful beer.

What a unique brew, it really took me quite a while to try to pick out all the flavors in this brew, even with the help of a fellow ratebeerian. Pours a cloudy light orange with a tall big bubbles white head. Tons of floral scent in the aroma, hops, flowers, tea spice, slight lambic sourness, perfumy and sweet. Taste starts just like the smell, very aromatic, hints of honey, chamomile, fruit, dry spice, and lightly citrus. Very herbal tasting. Very smooth and a unique enjoyable brew, what an experience.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2008 [corked and caged 750 ml. bottle] This was the most stubborn cork I ever ran across. Took me 10 minutes, a knife and a corkscrew to get it out of there. Surprisingly with all the mutilating of it that I did, no cork guts made it into the beer. Pours a slightly cloudy gold color with a thick and fizzy white head. Aroma is very citrusy and earthy with hints of flowers and pepper. Very flowery and sweet taste with a strong citrus backbone and a slight hoppy finish and a nice crisp aftertaste. Very nice saison.

Poured a copper color with a medium white head. Barnyard aroma followed by sweetness and citrus. Citrus follows through on the flavors. Sweet, spicey and tart. Medium bodied. Nice finish.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2010 Serenity seeping through a pillow of doughy flower petals...Citrusy buds sprout here and there amongst the heavenly photophagi and coerce some hay blades into forming a surreptitious bitterness...Paradisiacal thoughts are summoned as silent comfort installs itself, and eyes and ears are no longer necessary...

With time, sweeter honeyed malt notes appear and the flowers become peppery, somewhat losing part of their doughy fluffiness...Still very unique and massively tasty...

Pours a cloudy yellowish- orange with a frothy white head. Aroma is very Belgianish barnyard funky, light candi sugar, citrus and spices. Well made. Slighty tart finish - this would make a nice winter seasonal.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 25, 2004
Pours a cloudy copper golden with a thick, frothy, well-lacing, white head. Aroma is full of rich bready Belgian malt, yeasty barnyard and a touch of citrus and pepper spice. Starts with a mild caramel sweetness, showing some tartness and yeasty flavor toward a semi-dry finish. A nicely balanced, and authenic-tasting, interesting brew. Thanks goldtwins!

Orange blonde color with a thin white head and yeast in suspension. Heavenly aroma and flavor of yeast, flowers and citrus. Sweet finish. Very smooth texture, medium body. A complex and well balanced beer, again Southampton amazes me !
