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.

Very thin straw yellow pour. I think in a blind test most people couldn't pick out this pour next to Coors Light outside of the better, foamy head on the Allagash. Pleasant, strong smell of green apples, barnyard funk, white pepper. Bright, lively taste with lemon pepper, straw, yeast. Mild, gassy aftertaste. Looks like a dog, but tastes much better than that.

Cloudy gold straw hue on the pour, with some head and ample lace. Slight bready aroma. Taste is malty, peppery, slightly fruity and overly dry on the finish. I like this brewery a lot but this is not one of my favorites -- maybe this style is not to my liking. Bottled 07/09/20.

This is a great saison. At first I thought the hops were too spicy or piney but now I think it works. I usually like my saisons with more of a nobel hop character but this one has grown on me. Also Allagash tends to use more local hops so it's probably hopped with ME grown varieties. You have to love that. It's an interesting take on a saison with a bit of a twist in the unique hop flavors. I get a lot of cascade grapefruit in this.

12oz bottle. Poured out a slightly cloudy, straw-yellow color with a small, off-white head of bubbly foam. It receded to minimal lacing. It smelled of cracked wheat, grains, caramel and spices. Sweet caramel taste with a spicy bite and fruity finish.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a mason jar. Almost clear yellow with a 1/4 inch frothy head that dissipated quickly to just the edges of the glass. Smells as it should. I taste a citrus funky farmhouse flavor that is a little spicy. Clean and fresh. Very crushable. A solid saison that is not overpriced, readily available and never disappoints. I highly recommend it to anyone that feels like a saision once in a awhile.

L: pale lemon yellow with a loose white head that dissolves into a lacy film
S: very mild citrus and pine
T: mild lemon and pine with a slight acidic tartness
F: smooth with a slight tingle, dry as the back of the tongue
O: delicious. This is a go-to when I tire of lagers. Very well balanced with a enough hoppiness to make you want to refresh without being bitter or sour and a great alternative to an IPA

Do not get this beer again. I do like SOME saisons but not this one - it has that awful aftertaste.
