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.

Straw colored and hazy, pour nice two finger head, and that was from a growler! This one looks great

Clean earthy smell with a hint of hops and wheat. I didn't get any fruitiness at first, but I seldom do. Very bright aroma though

Nice and dry, with a little hop to the back of the mouth. I will be getting this one a lot more. I always liked the dry beers, and this one does not disappoint

Medium body with a great cleansing sense. I am new to the saison style so I really can't compare it within its class, but I like it

My first beer from Allagash, once again, go with a craft or smaller local brew and you can't miss. Good Yankee beer.
