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. Pour is a bright hazy yellow, with a solid white head that fizzles fairly quick. Aroma is farmhouse funk, but not overly funked. Taste is tropical and refreshing. Slightly sweet and spicy. Very nice saison! Hops are a balanced passenger with a light malt base.

Very cloudy yellow, with a nice white head. Smells yeasty, grassy, and lightly spicy. Taste is grassy and grainy with sweet, fruity yeasty flavors. A bit of pineapple and banana as it warms.

Light golden yellow pour with a thick white head. Aroma of spices, citrus, soap, and a hint of barnyard. Starts out sweet with hay notes, then that sweetness is zapped by a distinct white pepper flavor. Finish is slightly bitter and dry. Overall I think this is a great interpretation of the Belgian classic style. I love saison, its my favorite style and this hits the mark pretty well. Thanks Allagash.

Bottle @ RBSG 2014 Grand Tasting. Pale straw pour with a white head. Some cracker malt, lemon and orange zest, and spicy coriander. A bit of yeast and white pepper. Kind of grassy, too. Flavor is a little bitter and grassy for my tastes. Decent cracker and pale malt character. Some citrus peel, which is a nice touch. Decently floral and spicy. Okay saison.

Draft at the Washington Nationals game. Poured a mostly clear golden orange color with a slight haze, small off-white head. Aroma was nice spicy pepper notes, some funk. Touch of esters and bubblegum. Pretty refreshing and tasty.

Bottle (12 oz). Clear bright yellow with a medium fully lasting white head and good lacing. Aroma is of Saison yeast, light spices/peppery notes, orange peel and herbal notes. Taste is also of spices/pepper, orange malt, good malt backbone, light acidic notes, herbal/floral presence and some Belgiumness. Medium body. Moderate/medium carbonation. Moderately dry finish. Really easy drinking and quenching. Quite authentic too. Good balance. Well done Allagash!
