Allagash Launching Rotating Saison Series
Allagash Brewing is launching a draft only, Rotating Saison Series this year. The first release is dubbed Saison Genever. Brewed with honey from Overland Apiaries, juniper, and lemongrass. Each edition will release intermittently thoughout the year.
Tasting notes on Saison Genever:
This dark amber saison has an aroma consisting of a pronounced fruitiness, with highlights of honey and pine throughout. The flavor is a great balance of malts (both light and dark), hop bitterness and citrus fruit, while still leaving room to showcase a rich honey presence. Saison Genever is medium to full bodied, yet dry and very refreshing.
Availability: Draft only.
Arrival: Jan-Feb, 2012
