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.

I had it from the bottle. Itís a nice balance of wheat, citrus, pepper, and spice. Itís a solid beer for the style. It was very refreshing.

Golden color with a white head. Aroma contains lemons, spices, and herbal notes. The flavor is a bit dry but also sweet with some citrus notes. Carbonated palate lol that sounded nerdy. Good.

If youíre going to try an Allagash beer you should have this one first. Itís spicy, sweet and full of Belgian goodness. Massive amounts of bubble gum, sweet yeast and complexity. This is a solid Saison and if you need a go to for the style, I think this is it.

Well Iíll be a monkeyís uncle. I hadnít ticked this yet for some reason. 12oz bottle from Plumpjack Noe. The appearance almost makes you crap your pants. Itís a brilliant golden-yellow color and has a lacy white head that keeps getting replenished by bubbles. Oh the bubbles! Freaking life-changing stuff. The aroma is tasty as hell. Citrus, pineapple, Belgian yeast, and spicy rye and hops. The flavor is tasty as hell. Really dry, and almost gets wetter as it dries like a towel. Nice subtle rye note and a dry, bitter finish. Classic Allagash yeast, for which Iím a sucker. They crushed the mouthfeel. Oh so dry despite being a liquid, with prickly bubbles assaulting your tongue. Allagash, you do Belgiums so good. How do you do it? I donít know, but I like Belgiums and I will keep drinking them. Thanks and kindly do the needful.

Poured into a Belgian ale glass. Pale, yeasty yellow brew, pretty decent light ale with some yeast and spiciness with a bit of hop bitterness thrown in. Not too familiar with this style yet, but my impression is that this one is a bit unusual due to the hops. OK summer beer, though.
