Looking forward to trying this one after having Southampton's regular saison which i enjoy very much. This one did not disappoint! The head on this beer is like no other, huge with fantastic carbonation. The taste is not quite as funky as Saison Dupont but all the fruity characteristics and musty scent are very noticable. This is a great beer which lovers of the Saison style shold seek out.

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.
