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.

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

rodenbach99 (3397) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 27, 2015
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.
