look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass. No dating that I could find.

Nice pour, yellow with hints of red. 1/2 inch foamy head which sank to 1/4-1/8 inch fairly quickly. Interesting spidery lacing

very little aroma, some yeast, and a little fruit

enjoying the taste though, much stronger than anticipated. even a little alcohol burst toward the end. light to medium on the mouth. fairly dry finish.

Admit to not being that fond of Southampton beers, but this one is quite pleasant. certaily wouldn't pass it up again.

Southampton Biere De Mars has a thick, spongy, white head, and a hazy, bubbly, amber appearance, and a pretty substantial lace curtain left behind. The aroma is evocative of wheat, for sure, but one will pick up subtle spices, sweetness, and a wonderful toasted malt. Taste is of sweet, spiced bread and a touch of hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and soft, and Southampton Biere De Mars finishes semi-dry, a bit alcoholic, and quite drinkable.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: Oxidized orange with a glass consuming effervesce. A creamy 1 inch heather tinted head has longtivity while gracing the glass with a respectable snakeband laceing.

S: Nose of toasted sweet honey malt, toasted almond, fresh nobel flowers, with some sweet vienna accents. Finishes with a light earthy barnwood fade.

T: Flavor was sweet and toasty grains, vienna, dry caramel, immediatly followed by a musky scent. Sweet almond butter, honey, mixes with some fresh nobel flowery hops.

M: crisp, with a slick honey consistency, and sweet honey warmth on the inner cheeks.

O: Overall it feels like an octoberfest, sweetly malted with a bit of musky, yeasty saison quality. Nobel hop presence and a solid good making per style. Good drinkability.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

A: Golden with a surprisingly thin head and not much lacing

S: Light fruits and light grainy scents

T: Spicy and vague light fruit. Semi-dry finish

M: Light bodied

O: I really expected more out of this one. Could definitely say its refreshing, but thats about it. Scent and taste are weak and I would have liked a bit of a drier crisper finish. Definitely needs more to it if its going to be 6.5%

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Appearance: Hazy, light brown color with a thin cap of head that fades quickly.

Aroma: Very bready, molasses, hints of ripe fruit.

Taste: Syrupy sweetness, bready malt, then a bit of funky yeast in the middle. Sourness builds on the back end, with some nutty and grain husk notes trailing in the finish which is fairly lingering.

The Rest: To be fair, this is a style I don't have a lot of expirence with. It reminds me somewhat of a dubble, but the malt and sweetness is just a bit too unbalanced.
