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. 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.

Bottle in LA. Pale hazy straw with white head. Citrus and saison yeast spice on the aroma, pretty simple aroma/flavour though, no complexity. Finish is dry with moderate bitterness. Moderate carbonation. A decent simple saison.

Sample 7/19/14 (Naperville Ale Fest)-Pours a hazy golden with a small head. Aroma of spices and citrus. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew is well balanced and hit the spot on that hot day. Great Saison.

Dacrza (736) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - DEC 11, 2015
DATE TASTED: December 11, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: La fin du Monde tulip... OCCASION: prepping for our first Quiz Bowl competition at Leonia tomorrow... APPEARANCE: spritzy, quite hazy sallow golden body; three-finger head slips quickly into a pillowy, single-finger snow-white crown of varying thickness; artistic rings form as lacing as the glass drains... AROMA: beautiful candied sugars allure from the start; lemon, mango and pepper add to the invitation; slight clove and banana suggests yeasty funk that straddles the weizen arena... PALATE: textured, medium-bodied, frothy and active early; grainy but dry at the finish, as expected--quite drinkable... TASTE: pepper and clove work early and satisfy; the mango and lemon are bright and clear, flirting with the bitterness of an IPA but keeping with the funky weizen qualities... OVERALL: a fresh, full-flavored experience, with a light malt profile that allows for an easy-drinking, sessionable ale....

Sirmixsomewhat (167) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2015
This beer is easy on the eyes, but it’s not quite as easy on the tongue. I like the citrus flavors, but the hint of spiciness feels just a touch out of place. This isn’t a bad beer, but it’s not great.

Pours a clear pale golden with a small white head that quickly fades and leave you with a small rim that doesn’t leave much lacing. Nose is of pepper, fruits and basically just your classic saison dialed in almost perfectly. I’d be really curious to have a white wine barrel aged version of this! Taste is of dry and moderately bitter with some fresh cereals and pepper. Light fruity tartness. Body is light to medium and carbonation moderately high, I could drink gallons of this without tiring I’m sure! Yum!

From a bottle to a tulip. Pours an extremely pale and troubled golden. On the nose, classic saison. Pepper and lemon, with an interesting hop presence. Nice bitterness (rye and hops?). Tastes like citrus and pepper. The finish is indeed dry. Well done saison!

esox (1224) - Oulu, FINLAND - NOV 14, 2015
Draught @ Camba Tap House, Munich. Pale straw color, lacy head. Tight citrus and sweet strawberries, green grapes, currants and some spices (orange peel?). Lactic aromas too. Dry, grainy flavor with a hint of berryish sourness. Nice, narrow bitterness and peppery yeast on the finish. Light and refreshing on the palate. Nice high carbas. Good saison.
