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.

Appearance: Straw yellow with a big fluffy white head, leaves good lacing

Smell: Belgian yeast, dry malts, a little bit of saison funk

Taste: Lemongrass, crisp dry malts, hints of saison funk

Mouthfeel: Good carbonation, medium body, semi-dry finish

Overall: Good, but there are plenty of better saisons out there. A favorite style of mine, I like to try new variations on it when I can.

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.
