BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Allagash Brewing Company
Maine, United States
allagash.com

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.10%

Availability: Year-round

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.

I'm by no means a beer expert. This is my favorite beer I've ever had, and I regularly stock it.

Appearance- thick, meringue-like head atop golden-colored ale with bottle-conditioned cloudiness

Aroma- fresh orange and coriander characteristic of Saison

Taste- perfect for a Saison: balanced and refreshing, starting orangey-sweet, finishing with some bitterness and a dry aftertaste on the roof of the mouth

Mouthfeel- considerably rich body for 6.1% ABV, softly carbonated

Overall- Allagash does it again! Like their White and their Dubbel, their Saison is perfectly in style and hard to improve upon

Not sure why this doesn't have a higher rating. If we are rating beers within their category it's clear this Saison is superior to most others.

I have had this several times, but never in the right vessel, until now. A Duvel, fat tulip glass made the world of a difference. Letting it flow and air out lightly and just right, giving enough head room and letting the saison style breathe. Many saisons I have had were easy in regular beer glasses, but this babe needed a little more TLC. And with that, my appreciation grew.

Orange in colo . Big frothy head
Smell of yeast. Orange. Orange peel. Cracker. The taste is the same as the smell. Fruity yeast. Feel is light. Effervescent.
