3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- A well spiced brew that has traces odors of various items (coriander, nutmeg, citrus ad hops)
Appearance- A murky yellow color, with a very large white head.
Taste: A traditional Saison, a mild flavor with just a hint of bitterness.. The added spice does add some zest to the tongue.
Palate- A well balanced brew between carbonation and flavor that ends in a semi-dry finish.
Overall- A good Saison from Allagash. Hell, I haven’t had a bad beer experience from this brewer. Worth a try.

Pours a clear gold with a thin to medium sized white head. Soft musk and a bit of pineapple. Sweet mango notes and a bit of dry wheat. Dries out immensely, finishing up bone dry with a bit of cracked black pepper on the finish. Lovely.

I just tried the Two Roads saison and this is a bit more of what I was hoping that beer would be - much more firm and round in the mouth - where that beer is simple, this is subtle but fairly complex - gentle, well-balanced mix of esters and phenols - my one complaint here is that they are a little too subdued by the slight sweetness that develops late - otherwise rustic and lovely to drink.

Light pepper spice with some lemon and farm on the nose with a little extra tropical fruitiness in the flavor. Finishes quite dry. Could be a prototype. Very nice.

Bright yellow pour with good billowing pillowtop bright white head. Very light and effervescent. Fresh and tropical fruitiness and a bit spicy. Kinda like a hefewiezen, but without the banana, clove, or bubblegum. Bready lingering slight bitterness. Nice.
