Thoroughly enjoyed this article. Hard to say that nowadays.

I love how a Belgian wants to make it clear that the French Saison yeast is technically from Belgium.

Definitely a good read. Surely there are more than 2 yeast strains out there, just the commercially available ones I guess. Smaller saison brewers like Geants, Pipaix, Fantome, etc. have to be using a unique house strain.

*not my photo.  More importantly, why haven’t I been to this festival.

Made with sourdough yeast.  Pretty good, dry without the stereotypical saison flavors.  Mildly tart with a touch of bitterness

Should we take a cab home, Jesus?
Shit man, we can hoof it from here.
I know you can walk on water...
But can you walk on this much beer?

L’Automne
Hacienda Beer Co.


Foeder-fermented saison, aged in oak with house mixed culture, conditioned on dried sage.

Bright gold with bright clarity and huge billowing head, drippy lacing around the glass.

Zesty citrus aroma, lemon-lime, a touch brie rind funk, herbal sage and dill accents.

Zingy acidity, lemon, sage, dill notes with balanced citrus and savory herbal elements.

Zippy carbonation, light bodied and effervescent, finishes bone dry.

Overall this is a an excellent mixed-ferm saison, and pairs well with cheese and charcuterie.

Hacienda L'Automne 2021 edition

This is more of a wild ale, but they call it a mixed ferm saison. Lemon lime sourness, some vinegar. Brewed with chanterelles this year, but didn't really taste anything savory. Last years used sage, and that was a lot better. This one was less clean with the vinegar lingering.

Saison D’Erpe-Mere
Brouwerij De Glazen Toren


Stone cold classic :rock:

Looking through the BotM April 2021 thread of Saisons, this one made me wistful. Working from home, watching the flowers and trees bloom in warmer weather, day drinking Saisons. Sigh. Does life get any better?

Drank a couple Afterthought saisons today, Saison Meer: Malbec barrel (good) and Galaxy’s Moon with blood orange and dry-hopped with Galaxy (excellent).

All 3 had some type of flaw. The KT was flat, but perfectly enjoyable. Tempus was very sour with some acetic acid, but reminded me of good OG Le Terroir. Perennial was terrible, heavy medicinal Brett, one dimensional mustiness and sharp lactic sourness. The base saison was obliterated.

I've been hesitant to try these OEC sour bottles due to fears of too much acetic sourness. I'll probably keep staying away.

Last one I had previously was better, batch 8... 2ish years ago. Tempus seems fairly variable, i've had several other OEC sour beers that were great though. Exilis, Floresco, Orenji, Malefactus, Phantasma Sour Blend #4, Artista Zynergia: Gosatequin, Experimentalis - Lime & Kumquat.

Revisiting an old fave, now that it's available here locally. Southampton Saison Deluxe.  :ale:

Awesome beer.

:thumbup:
We get Southhampton here, but you'd hardly know it. Honestly can't remember the last time i've seen Saison Deluxe, and i'd buy it all the time if I could :shrug:
I did pick up a Cuvee Des Fleurs a couple years back, but mainly all I ever see are the Double White sixers... :confused:

Anybody know if Cuvee des Fleurs is still made? That's another great beer.

I remember nearly a decade ago when Southampton was the hot brewery (like Hill Farmstead is now). Man, I traded for sooo many bottles. Their original saison was unbelievable. And Biere de Garde. And...  :coffee:

I think some of Southamptons issues are when the brewer left for Two Roads Brewing in CT (2011 or maybe 2012). It doesn't seem like their focus is on the farmhouse style anymore.
thread resurrection :tombstone:

Anyone had Two Roads? Heard good stuff about their saisons, and considering Phil M. is brewing them, seems very legit. Also I saw they have a "lambic series"...

I've only had their DIPA.  Adam and Allie have a friend that is a rep for them.  I would guess they can answer how it is.  On another note, Two Roads basically has the same brewhouse that we do at the new place.

Saison Deluxe came to mind again, still wondering whatever happened to that beer. Did Phil Markowski sign a non-compete with Southampton when he left? Doesn't seem like Two Roads does many saisons besides "Workers Comp". :shrug:

I was so asscited when I saw Southampton on the shelves locally when I moved to Maryland.  I bought up all the Saison Deluxe and their Grand Cru that I could get my hands on for the first couple years I lived out here. 
Then, basically nothing.  I don't know if I've even seen them on the shelves here in 10 years.
Quote from: J-Rod
I ended up drinking 9 times my body weight in beer, broke three glasses over my head, 7 over others, ordered up 17 hookers for a little afterparty, held a cabbie hostage while running his cab through the Madison capitol doors, and I grabbed gator's ass.

Same here, the 750s disappeared, then the sixers of Double White were the last to go. Looks like they switched distributors in 2011 to Total Beverage Solutions.

Just curious if the brewer was making a reasonable facsimile these days, but I guess not. Weird since he wrote Farmhouse Ales.

There is a quote I have saved from a rating on RB:

Quote
Phil wrote the book on saison. Literally. Perhaps it’s time he rereads it. -Andy’s rating for Two Roads Workers Comp Saison

Two Roads never had the same feel for me as any of the SH stuff, either the brewpub or contract stuff.

I think Southampton is completely out of the beer game now. First, they moved out of their original location a few years ago and moved into a space with no brewery. Now, I cannot find any evidence that Southampton Publick House beer is still distributed anywhere.

I have a criminally old bottle of SH 10th Anniversary Old Ale sitting around.  To afraid to drink it.
