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.

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.
