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.

Served from tap in a tumbler at Firkin.

Starting things off with an everyday Allagash that has taken me far too long to try. It pours a partially hazy golden-brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises lemon zest, mild pineapple syrup, coriander, light cracked wheat, Belgian yeast, and a hint of cobweb. The taste brings in more of the same, my tongue enlivened with strong veins of tropical fruits and mild spice rack denizens. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a rather tasty saison. Straight up. 'Nuff said.

Very floral and fruity. I see this as being above average, but I have had better in the style.
