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.

Underdogs88 (261) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 7, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2014 Orange like citrus and pepper on the nose. Hazy yellow appearance with a fluffy whit head. Flavor has citrus notes upfront with a lot of pepper phenols. Slightly acidic per style. Mouthfeel is medium body with a med-high level of carbonation. Overall, it’s an ok saison. . . ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a bottle to a tulip. Pours an extremely pale and troubled golden. On the nose, classic saison. Pepper and lemon, with an interesting hop presence. Nice bitterness (rye and hops?). Tastes like citrus and pepper. The finish is indeed dry. Well done saison!

esox (1213) - Oulu, FINLAND - NOV 14, 2015
Draught @ Camba Tap House, Munich. Pale straw color, lacy head. Tight citrus and sweet strawberries, green grapes, currants and some spices (orange peel?). Lactic aromas too. Dry, grainy flavor with a hint of berryish sourness. Nice, narrow bitterness and peppery yeast on the finish. Light and refreshing on the palate. Nice high carbas. Good saison.

Fat på five napkin burger , nyc. Ljusgul vätska. Syrlig doft med lite bananskum. Ganska vattnig i smak och kropp. Vete och hö. Inte mycket beska

trapped (1654) - New York, TURKEY - OCT 30, 2015
Draught. Pours slightly cloudy rich yellow with small off-white foamy head, citrus aroma, medium carbonation, slightly spicy, vanilla flavored beer with medium bitter finish. Quite a nice brew.

The aroma and dominant flavour is more like a wit , with banana yeast to the fore. Light carbonation, and very easy to drink

tfontana (297) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 15, 2015
Bottle poured into pint glass. Aroma is yeasty cheese and basement with muted fruity esters. Appearance is hazy light yellow with insignificant head, nice sparkle, and trace lacing. Taste is medium sour with only light sweet and bitter balance. Palate is light bodied with thin texture and fizzy carbonation, dry, bitter/sour finish. Overall, kind of a Kolsch-y saison. Not digging the sourness and bitterness of this. Like other Allagash offerings way more than this.

A little more hoppy than I was expecting, but still a really good saison otherwise. Would buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

walrussell (192) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2015
Clear gold, head quickly disappears. Smells like grass, a little sulfur, pepper, light malt, and a little sour. Dry (but much sweeter than Dupont and the like), moderate - pronounced bitter, light sour. Tastes like passion fruit and pepper, a tiny bit if banana/clove. Super refreshing. Pretty mild compared to super-dry Belgian saisons or wacky/sour new American craft saisons.I like it because it is easier.

DiarmaidBHK (3850) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2015
Sample at Allagash brewery. Pours golden with a white head. Leaves a fair amount of lacing in the glass. Not getting a ton on the nose. Lots of barnyard on the tongue. Finished clean. Solid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scopey (9998) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2015
Tap at Allagash. It pours hazy gold with a thick white head. The nose is clean, fresh bread, light sweetness, soft fruits, lemon drizzle cake and a touch of bubblegum. The taste is crisp, clean, bready, cracker, light spice, grass, mild sweetness and a touch of alcohol with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate, foamy carbonation. Decent, easy-drinking saison.
