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.

Sampled on tap at GABF 2014. Pour is clear lemon peel with a big white head and great lacing. Lemony, phenolic, white pepper, some coriander, basil, biscuity, and grassy aroma. Taste is biscuit, some straw, phenols, black pepper, coriander, and herbs with a slightly spicy finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Very sessionable and something I can see myself pounding, but too many estery notes that I don’t particularly care for in my saisons.

Poured from bottle into tulip. Pours a light gold with a huge white pillow for a head. Aroma - spicy, sweetness from Belgian candy sugar. Taste - nicely spicy, sweet, bit of earthiness as well. This went really well with food and I like it a whole lot.

drpimento (2267) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Poured with a huge fine off-white long-lasting head, lots of lace and a hazy yellow color. Aroma is fruit yeast crackers. Flavor is dominated by carbonic Tang and yeast flavors a little fruit, quite bitter only a hint sweet. excellent body. Would've been better overall if the bitterness wasn't overplayed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AdamJackson (2689) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 26, 2014
On tap, keg from 8/15/2014. Enjoyed at 50 F in wine stemware. Pours a hazy golden hue with a 3 finger frothy head. leaves a sticky lacing. Nose is oatmeal, peppery spice, lots of clove, honey and orange peel. Taste is pretty classic saison. I wish there was some brettanomyces funk in this beer. It has a nice dry finish, spice and herbal qualities like ground pepper, coriander and orange peel. Good mouthfeel....i just want that funk.

Similar in nose in taste. Lots of rye, lots of earth, a big of funkiness. Some fruit, of the tropical variety. Takes a bit to get used to it, then it grows on you. Nice. Dry finish.

355 ml purchase at the Craft Beer Cellar in Waterbury (VT) on August 19, 2014. Golden yellow, small head. Aroma of sweet rye and wheat, nice spiciness. Very dry cereal taste, some spicy sweetness, some light bitterness. Nice, simple saison!
