Availability: Year-round

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.

Appearance- thick, meringue-like head atop golden-colored ale with bottle-conditioned cloudiness

Aroma- fresh orange and coriander characteristic of Saison

Taste- perfect for a Saison: balanced and refreshing, starting orangey-sweet, finishing with some bitterness and a dry aftertaste on the roof of the mouth

Mouthfeel- considerably rich body for 6.1% ABV, softly carbonated

Overall- Allagash does it again! Like their White and their Dubbel, their Saison is perfectly in style and hard to improve upon

I have had this several times, but never in the right vessel, until now. A Duvel, fat tulip glass made the world of a difference. Letting it flow and air out lightly and just right, giving enough head room and letting the saison style breathe. Many saisons I have had were easy in regular beer glasses, but this babe needed a little more TLC. And with that, my appreciation grew.

No sports on yet at the bar so here goes my first review.

Allagash Saison on tap poured into a tulip glass

A- golden yellow straw color with little head and a nice lacing as I'm drinking

S- earthy and light with some citrus

T- slightly bitter, grqpefruit citrus, straw, strong up front and mellows out nicely

M- juicy at first with a semi dry finish that coats the tongue

O- great saison, love the bit of fruitiness and dry finish, super drinkable, Allagash nails another style, this is the first time I've seen this but hopefully not the last
