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.

Underdogs88 (321) - 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

Draft at the source on 5/17/2016. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of mild citrus, yeast, hay, and tropical fruit. Similar taste. Finish is fairly dry. Perhaps a bit bland overall.

Pours a golden amber color with big fluffy head. Aromas of citrus, grass, yeast, and some dusty notes. Starts spicy effervescent, then to some grassy funky highlights...

Bottle to tulip. Cloudy straw yellow. Quick head. Nose is light lemon citrus with a tease of banana. Palate is all wheat with a dance of the citrus from the nose. Clean finishing. More fizzy than I prefer. None the less yummy.

tmoreau (3516) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 9, 2016
On tap at Brixie’s Beer Bar & Grill in Brookfield, IL., dispensed to a 7 oz. hi-ball glass showing a clear & bright, golden hue, with a frothy layer of white head foam, and clingy patches, ribbons, and spots of lacing. The nose was fruity, with a mild blend of citrus, pit fruit, tropical scent, a hint of banana, and some spicy phenols. Light bodied, uplifted by lively carbonation, the taste was similar notes, with some citrusy tartness, and a bit of dryness, with modest, earthy bitterness. Benchmark crisp & clean.

Alright.

McGarnigle (607) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 9, 2016
4-pack bottles. Pretty straightforward saison, in a time where they are often the source for experimentation among US breweries. Straw colored, lightly fizzy. Fruity and peppery yeast flavors, but no barnyard or funk. Hops dry it out at the end. Light and easy-drinking.

Not so dirty yeast aroma. Clear yellow color with a small white head. Sweet beginning that fades in the finish. Typical saison bitterness in the finish.
