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. It was hopped with Tettnang, Bravo and Cascade hops. Fermented with a traditional saison yeast strain, this beer 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.

Clear gold, head quickly disappears. Smells like grass, a little sulfur, pepper, light malt, and a little sour. Dry (but much sweeter than Dupont and the like), moderate - pronounced bitter, light sour. Tastes like passion fruit and pepper, a tiny bit if banana/clove. Super refreshing. Pretty mild compared to super-dry Belgian saisons or wacky/sour new American craft saisons.I like it because it is easier.

DiarmaidBHK (3821) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2015
Sample at Allagash brewery. Pours golden with a white head. Leaves a fair amount of lacing in the glass. Not getting a ton on the nose. Lots of barnyard on the tongue. Finished clean. Solid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scopey (9771) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2015
Tap at Allagash. It pours hazy gold with a thick white head. The nose is clean, fresh bread, light sweetness, soft fruits, lemon drizzle cake and a touch of bubblegum. The taste is crisp, clean, bready, cracker, light spice, grass, mild sweetness and a touch of alcohol with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate, foamy carbonation. Decent, easy-drinking saison.
