Had this last night after holding on to it for a little while. Thanks goes out to JoeyBeerBelly for sending me this back in September. Thanks Joe!
Pours a nice yellow orange color. The first glass is clear, and subsequent glasses get more hazy until the final glass which is intensely cloudy. Decent two finger pure white head with decent retention. It leaves some slippery lacing but not much.
The nose starts off very fruity, very nice start. Big citrus notes of oranges picked up fron the yeasts. Nice spicey hops in the finish. Lacks a defining funk, but still a very good saison.
The combination of spicey hops, fruity yeasts and bready malts make this a pretty good saison. Nothing too special, but a solid example of the style. Again, like the nose, the taste lacks the funk that might put this over the top.
Mouthfeel has a low carbonation, with a very smooth feel to it. Medium to heavy body, which I feel makes this unique enough to enjoy. Drinkability is pretty good.
A solid example of a Saison by Southampton. I would love to have this again, but not regularly because of the price tag and availability.

Bottle purchased at the Foodery, Northern Liberties, Philadelphia. Best by date 11/13/14.
Hazy golden body, crowned with a creamy foam head. Very good head retention and lacing, eventually dissipates to a cap and ring.
Very pleasant aroma of light malt, green grassy hops, some tropical fruit notes, brett, and spice.
A very fine tasting saison, with bready malt, lemon and tropical fruit, and interesting yeast flavor, with a strong element of brettanomyces yeast with flavors of band-aid and a little copper penny. It is strongly hopped with notes of green grassy hops that linger in the long finish, and turns progressively bitter, finishing up like orange rind. There is a lot going on in this beer that is hard to describe, but it is definitely complex, interesting, very well balanced, and tasty.
Body is medium and the carbonation is moderate, giving this a slightly creamy mouthfeel.
A saison that is defined by a good yeast strain(s) that is interesting, complex, hoppy, and well balanced. Love getting all this flavor in a brew that is 7.5% ABV--could drink loads of this stuff, but this was my last bottle.
