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.

Bottled on 6/11/2015
Enjoyed on 8/31/20215

Look: Hazy, yellow/beige color, little head, no lace.

Smell: Good fragrance, citrus and coriander

Taste: Typical Saison with a great companion of the overall Belgian taste, biscuity, coriander, esters, cloves hazy wheat

Feel: Little too light for my taste. Feels less like wine in my mouth like some other Saisons have though. higher carbonation plays well with it.

Overall: Poor looking, like it wasn't meant to be poured out of the bottle. Good aroma. Thin, high-carbonation feel. Not what I look for in a Saison but interesting and well put together. Great tasting Saison with Belgian influence. Would buy again.

Came in a standard pint glass a dull sunshine yellow with a tightly formed bone white head atop.Toasted grain,peppery spice,and faint lemon peel in the nose.Quite spicy but not overly phenolic,mainly white pepper and herbal notes,a decent citric bight in the finish.Not a style I gravitate to but this was quite good.
