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.

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.

Complex but not weird. Rich in flavors and very well equilibrated. I’m not the bestr friend od saison style buti’ll make an exception with this Allagash.

Hazy pour with a thin offwhite head. Aroma is yeasty, peppery, and slightly bready. Very classical. Flavor is mild bread, a flutter of lemon, some nice grain notes and more peppery yeast character. A very dry finish rounds this out as a pretty damn good saison. Very nice.

This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a light hazy yellow color with a big one finger white foamy head that dissipated to some bubbles and had a messy lacing. The smell had a decent rustic to earthy yeasty breadiness with a refreshing blend of sweet citrus and a light coriander spice. The taste copied the smell and carried a nice lingering sweet bready aftertaste leading to a sweet wet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a great sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for me and for the style. Refreshing lemon coated yeastiness flows over my tongue. Overall, I say this was a pretty good saison I’d have again.

Pours a light hazy yellow with a long lasting white head that leaves lacing. The nose is slight citrus with some malt. Body is light. Taste is the closest of the three saisons tasted today to Dupont. 12 oz bottle

En fût à la brasserie un matin de printemps. Une belle robe blonde avec une tête blanche. Un nez classique de saison avec des notes citronnées flamboyantes. Une bouche à la fois sèche et fruité. Une finale qui appelle à une autre gorgée. Une bière de soif, facile et distinctive. Une initiation parfaite au style.

Bottled. Pour into tulip, clear golden color, white fluffy head. Aroma is citrus, wheat, clove, lemon, coriander, Belgian spices, very very slight sour note. Actually pretty nice smell. Flavor is wheat, lemon, clove, slight sour note, and hop bitterness. Really good saison.

Sample on tap at the brewery. Hazy pale gold pour with white head. Aroma is really grainy, lemony, floury, bready, really nice yeastiness. Taste is grainy, crisp, great belgian peppery yeast. Palate is med-light bodied with good carbonation. Great classic saison.

Belle dorée. Mousse comme il se doit. Nez sur le style, levure aimable, touche citronnée, poivre doux, céréales, fruité tropical qui se développe. Céréale croquante. Corps honnête. Finale surette et sèche. Belle saison facile d’approche.
