Excited to try this new year-round from Allagash as I've always felt a saison would complement their already excellent white, dubble, and triple offerings.
Fills the glass with a pale golden color and capped with a towering white head that doesn't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. Impressively fruity right up front on the nose with lots of citrusy lemon notes which give way ever so slightly to a subtle peppery spice note as it opens up.
Tropical fruit notes aren't quite as powerful on the palate, revealing more of an even balance between the yeasty pepper spice and juicy sweet and tart fruit notes. Finishes with just a touch of musty farmhouse character.
Overall, another excellent offering from Allagash. It'll be nice to have another widely available and affordable saison on the shelves along sides the likes of Hennepin and Tank 7.
