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. towdini (4) - USA - SEP 2, 2010 does not count
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. Juelze (1146) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2010
Pours a hazy golden color with thick frothy white head. Aroma is of light apple, pear, spice and light clove. Taste is much the same, but this is a very subtle and well done Saison. boto (2211) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - AUG 1, 2010
750ml bomber: This one pours a hazy, golden straw yellow color. There was a huge frothy white head on mine, so much that it was difficult to pour. The aroma is very nice. Floral, grassy, some citrus and faint spice. The taste is very good. slightly tart, with a faint bit of apple and citrus in there. Slight spice, wheat, grassiness. This is a very nice beer. Too bad I seem to have one of the last.

On tap at Capone’s on 5/29/2010. Transparent yellow with average white head. Aroma is sweet and very herbal, some grass, cloves and coriander. Too much herbal aroma. Flavor has lots of cereal, citrus, too many herbs, too much of an almost artificial tasting sweetness. Finish is mildly bitter, with cereal and grapenuts.

Tap at Capone’s. Clear yellow-brown pour. Bubbly with a thin white head. Very floral with clove and coriander. Very good amount of yeast and funk, but spice is very noticeable - coriander and banana notes. Bitter finish. hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2009
On tap at the Copper Mine pub. Clear golden/light orange in color with a small off white head. Would have liked to have seen a bit more yeast in suspension. Good aroma - citrus esters, somewhat spicy and peppery - mild malt. Taste: Citrusy, somewhat estery, very light bubblegum, some spicy pepper - the yeast character would have been even better with more yeast in it. The carbonation was very low - became flat after a couple of minutes. Would love to try this again with more yeast and better carbonation. Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - NOV 20, 2009
Draft. I finally got to try this beer, original brewpub recipe per the Southampton rep. Pours a hazy copper body with a white head. The age is 6 weeks old so this is rather young. A spicy floral citrus body with cinnamon tone and lemon grass tartness. The citrus character really stands out almost tropical fruit amongst a spicy cinnamon toned body with a light acidity to finish. Really nice, here’s to 5 years of looking.
