Thanks to treyrab for including this in my intro to craft beer way back when. Long story short, I gave Trey $100 five months ago to buy me some "good" beer. Some of the stuff was ehhh, some as great as the Southampton Grand Cru. Long story short, this is one of the few beers that I have left from Trey's buying, so here we go.
Shit, It's a fizzer. I lightly cracked the side of the cap, and it viscously foamed out of the side. I was fortunate to capture at least 8 or 9oz.
A. It looks good. Slight hazy yellow. Plain and simple. No color tones. To be honest it looks a very good lager. A nice foamy white head. Decent lacing around the glass which shows a nice body to the beer. It actually looks like a single belgium.
S. HOLY WOW!!!1!!one!!! This smells unbelievable. One of the best smelling trippel's I've laid my nose on. Incredibly smooth, with tons of banana, orange and lemon zest coming out very well. Tons of the fruit comes out in addition to a very mild hops presence is apparent.
T. Great fruit presence. No alcohol is present, which really makes for an easy and enjoyable drink. I'm getting some freat apple taste, some banana, tons of lemon, and a little bit of orange peel. It's so well blended and so smoothly constructed. It's a little bit on the lighter side which is this beers only weakness. This beer is awesome.
I will be purchasing a couple of large bottles, I'd like to try this again in the near future and aged, as this is an perfect representation of the style.

Pours a one finger bubbly white head, hazy golden yellow body. Lots of bubbles rising to the top. Beautiful.
Sweet banana bread, cinnamon, and clove in the aroma. Slight citrus and floral notes.
Some sort of spice-like note on the tongue. Grassy and earthy. Citrus and floral on the back of the tongue. Bit of cinnamon and clove.
Lot's of carbonation, nice smooth mouthfeel.
