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.

Poured with a huge fine off-white long-lasting head, lots of lace and a hazy yellow color. Aroma is fruit yeast crackers. Flavor is dominated by carbonic Tang and yeast flavors a little fruit, quite bitter only a hint sweet. excellent body. Would've been better overall if the bitterness wasn't overplayed.

Pale straw colored, mildly cloudy. Smells like a Belgian. Highly carbonated, which I like. I prefer an earthier/peppery-er saison (this one leads lemony, and it's present in the aroma as well), but those flavors come through in the end. Overall a good saison from a wonderful brewery.

Pours a pale gold yellow with a lasting medium white head, some lacing. Aroma of Belgian yeast, wheat, citrus hops. Taste is sweet citrus, wheat, coriander, herbal and spiced hops. Palate is a medium body, crisp with moderate carbonation. Finish is Belgian yeast, bready, citrus, coriander with some good spiced hops for balance. A refreshing, crisp and enjoyable brew to drink overall.
