Notes/Commercial Description:
Allagash Saison is our interpretation of a classic Belgian farmhouse style. It is a golden hued beer, brewed with a 2-Row blend, malted rye, oats and dark Belgian candi sugar. Saison is hopped with Tettnang, Bravo and Cascade hops. Fermented with a traditional saison yeast strain, Saison exhibits notes of spice and tropical fruit in the aroma. Citrus and a peppery spice dominate the flavor and make way for a pleasant malt character. Saison is full bodied with a remarkably dry finish.

12oz brown bottle

Served in an Allagash goblet

Pours a hazy orange-hued/tea-like color with a substantial fluffy white head on top.

The smells of citrus and spices rise at once, followed by grass pastures and wildflowers. A dry malty smell rolls forward, as does a light whiff of gin.

Balanced flavors of citrus and strong tea ride on a solid malty body. Minor flavors of wood and spice peek through. A bit of clove-like taste fades and a pleasant honey sweetness glides in.
Nice for a cool summer night on the beach!
