Beer of the Week: Allagash Saison

IMG_1656Allagash Saison (6.1% alcohol): This Belgian farmhouse-style ale/saison brewed by Allagash Brewing Company in Portland, Maine pours a cloudy bright yellow with a soapy, white two-three finger head. The aroma is made up of wheat, grass and hay upfront followed by sweet orange and zesty lemon citrus as well as a bit of peppery spiciness toward the end. Let this beer sit for a few minutes before you so the suds can go down. Allagash Saison is grainy with citrus and floral notes. A light hoppy bitterness with a meager herbal quality finishes it all off. This isn’t my favorite saison, but definitely a solid beer worth trying if you like this style.
