BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Allagash Brewing Company
Maine, United States

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.

Had on-tap at Jack o the Wood Asheville. Served in a goblet.

A- Pours a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch white head that retains a bit before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheer sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a jagged ring behind.

S- Classic saison aroma with some hay, lemon and some mild funk.

T- Not so classic in the flavor as there's a pronounced bubble gum flavor closer to a witbier or standard Belgian Pale. Very good but quite sweet. Also notes of banana and a bit of clove.

M- Somewhat bright and tingly. Medium carbonation with a lightish body.

O- Tasty if not a bit typical. A nice session saison that would really be a winner if the price was a bit lower.
