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.

Clear pale golden color with very little head. Aroma is barnyard hay, and pears, perhaps a hint of eucalyptus. Flavor is dry and crisp, with a juniper berries in the finish. Pretty enjoyable.

Surprised Ive never had this beer before. Very pleasant, drier than average saison with a nice amount of spice and lemon character. Perfect with pizza. Tried at Pequods in Chicago in 2017 during ASEH with the Jayhawks crew.

SONOFWODEN (54) - New York, USA - MAR 12, 2017
My favorite US Saison is Ommegang Hennepin Saison or, in the general Belgian category, Gnoemegang Blonde Ale. In comparison, the Allagash body is thinner and taste is more mild than Hennepin. Minimal head when poured, tested in two different style glasses. I do pick up some citrus in both the aroma and flavor, along with some sweetness, which was nice. Here is the weird thing -- I had one of these over four weekends and each time, in glasses that had been cleaned the previous weekend and sitting in a cabinet, I picked up a definite odor of "dust" towards the middle to end. I dont know how else to describe it and I dont pick up that "dusty" smell with other beers in those same glasses and conditions. Net, its drinkable, ok, but not great.

Pale cloudy yellow with a diminishing, effervescent appearing head. Some grassy and fruity/yeasty notes on the nose. The palate is crisp, dry, very nice. Ive not had many Saisons but I can certainly see this fit the bill after a few hours of mowing or bike riding during the summer months.

BREWMUSKCLES (2651) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 20, 2017
nice golden colored saison that has a pleasant lightness to the body while frothy and fulfilling at the same time. really nice flavor of a Belgian golden ale full of coriander yet not overpowering. body is not watery but is not unduly thick. really a nice representation with some golden like malt and an easy peppery hop profile. really tuned in to this one. pleasant enough aroma. candied caramel, i like the fact that they got this done without a gimmicky fruit or anything like that. and that steely hard water notorious of this brewer is absent. abv to this lightly yeast treat is versatile.
