A nice Saison, a style I’m learning to just love more and more and something I need to brew soon. The honey in this beer is the star in my opinion. It doesn’t come through to much but what is there is really nice. Mix in the sweetness, grassiness, and spiciness and you have a really nice enjoyable brew.
Tap at Milltown back in the day. Just saw that I had not rated this. I know I had it. And Allagash is one of those breweries I have always loved so I need to have my entry in here, even if my memory of this beer is a *little* fuzzy. Remember it being super dry (probably from the added honey and juniper berries) with a light lemongrass note. Sorta herbal and citrusy with some light esters. Solid saison—look forward to trying the test batch of the what I am guessing is a more classic saison that Les dropped off at Sam’s the other day. Hopefully Nolan has not drank it already.

On tap in Queens. Gorgeous golden pour yields ridonkulous white head & lace. Serious retention. Aroma of fruity wild berries and hay. Smells dry. Crisp and refreshing on the palate; yeast and funk are under control and totally rounded. Body isn't overly carbed (hooray!). Nicely balanced overall. baraciisch (3311) - California, USA - SEP 5, 2013

On tap at 2SP. Pours a light amber color with a thin bright white head that leaves some lacing. Smell is lemony and grassy with herbal elements of coriander and a sweet fig undertone. Taste has lots of lemon, slight earthy and grassy/flowery tones, and big pepper that comes through in the finish. Body is light to medium with good carbonation and a semi-dry finish. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 16, 2012

On tap @ StagsHead. Poured a light amber with a small white head and minimal lacing. Aroma is a little weak with hints of bready malt, grass, Belgian yeast, and lemon zest. Taste is similarly dominated by malt, slight yeast funk, pepper, and citrus zest. Nice carbonation and smooth finish. jrodooo5 (1688) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Pours copper. Aroma is really lacking for me despite having a nice taste. Pretty smooth but nothing extraordinary to me. Solid but forgettable. italarican (1549) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2012
On tap at some Brooklyn bar whose name I forget. Aroma of wheat bread, yeast, grass, and blueberries. Flavor is similar: bready and yeasty with some fruit, grass, and caramel malt. Not very saison like. A bit confusing.
