On-tap at Dive Bar in Worcester, MA. Tried this once before in the tasting room at Allagash, glad to see it again.

A- Bright golden yellow pour from the tap. One finger creamy white head with decent retention. Tons of lace from a small ring.

S- Semi-sweet cracked rye, grains and malt comes to mind. Spicy yeast with notes of lemon zest, coriander and pepper.

T- Yeasty but not overbearing like some Saisons can be. Nice notes of semi-tart lemon peel, raisin, white pepper, coriander and oranges. Fresh cracked grains, rye and wheat bread come to mind as well.

MF- Light, semi-dry body with moderate carbonation. Light spicy bitterness in the finish and the tiniest bit of tartness.

Good Saison that isn't just a yeast bomb.

Fist pour on draft at Provisions market.

A- golden yellow opaque beer with egg white head. Great lacing that sticks around.

S- saison yeast and spicy rye. Tropical notes and spicy pepper with some funk.

T- spicy, sweet, funky, light hop, grapefruit, citrus bitterness. Sweet funk that lingers forever and back to the rye in the end with more tropical notes.

O- Such a good flavor, wow I am amazed at the flavor combination. I am very rarely letdown by allagash. I would drink this over and over again.
