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.

look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

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

Had on tap at the Publican, Chicago
Fruity nose: citrus, peach, tropical.
Hazy straw under a thick, moussey foam cap - lacy.
Fruity, spicy palate: citrus, tropical fruits, shot of pepper on the finish
Very creamy, medium body, medium high carbonation, very easy to drink.
