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.

Exactly what a saison should taste like. Peppery, Belgian yeast/farmhouse funk, lemon zest, tingles on the tongue, hazy golden yellow.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Hazy bright yellow with a huge bubbly white head. Yeasty nose, peppery and citrusy with some bread notes. Light malt, grassy medium bitterness, spice, citrus peel, some yeast and wheat tang. Very lively, dry, short finish and light-med bodied. OK.

The aroma in this beer is great. The problem starts after that. Once I get to the taste the saison flavor is really laking with a very water finish. It is ok for a saison but the good ends there ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap. Very good and refreshing. Not too sour. End of notes but need more characters. Done.

DSG (5750) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks zvikar. Hazy yellow with a big white head. Aroma of yeast, herbal and slightly floral spiciness, an earthy note, zesty touch and a bit of fruitiness. Dry-ish flavor with mild sweetness, floral and herbal spiciness, yeast, some fruitiness and a bitterish finish.

KyotoLefty (6324) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle. Belgian yeast, nice bready malts, peppery hops. Spicy citrus, and I think part of that is the rye. Crisp and tasty, a very "traditional" saison, meaning much in the style of Dupont, and as such, one of the best I have had in American in that vein.

12 ounce bottle from Beer Run, opened 6/12/14. Pours a hazy yellow color with a thin fizzy white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of bready malt, yeast, tropical fruits, citrus, caramel, noble hops. The taste is spice, yeast, caramel, bread, stone and tropical fruits. Medium bodied, high carbonation, lingering spice. Solid.
