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.

Allagash Saison - 6.1% ABV - Consumed October 28, 2014.
A: Bright hazy yellow hue with one finger of white froth and sheets of lacing on the tulip glass. A few bubbles in the body. Head retains well but the lacing subsides about midway through. Good look.
S: Floral, perfumey, and herbal hops, wheat malt, fruity yeast esters, lemon zest, slight waxiness, orange peel, and a hint of pepper. A very appealing nose.
T: Yeast, orange peel, wheat malt, lemon zest, floral and herbal hops, light nuttiness, pepper, and spice with a long, drying and mildly bitter finish. More lemon and yeast in the aftertaste. A flavourful, quenching, citrus-forward saison.
M: Crisp, medium-bodied, spicy-peppery carbonation, long, bone dry and lightly bitter finish with lemony-yeast afters. Bang on for the style.
O: A boilerplate, citrusy saison with big flavours, authentic Belgian character, and excellent drinkability. Great quaff.
