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: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a pale yellow color and a cloudy consistency. There was an inch of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. OK lacing.

S: A surprisingly herbal aroma, considering the style, with citrus and yeast as well.

T: Tasted of the typical saison funk, yeast, a little citrus (lemon), the herbal quality, and some pepper as well. This is a slightly tweaked version of a saison (the herbal element is a little different), but it's no less flavorful.

M: A highly carbonated beer with a dry, lively finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is another well made beer from Allagash. Totally worth checking out.
