Things that have meaning: Life, the universe and saison! Saison 42 is a French style, mostly harmless farmhouse ale, orange in colour and hopped with Bobec. Dry and refreshing and a great match to many foods. If you are new to this style you might say that it is almost, but not quite, entirely unlike beer. You would be wrong, this is the style that traditionally was brewed by farmers during the winter to be enjoyed in the summer after those long hard days of work. Batch 0008 Best served cold on a hot sunny day. Share and Enjoy!

Hazy amber beer, good fluffy white head. Light airy malt, a little sweet. Sweetish floral yeast. Slight pepper spice and very light tinned fruits. Dry finish. It’s okay, but just another saison.

Leighton (18735) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2013
Bottle at home in London - picked up the Kris Wines. Pours mostly clear chestnut gold, with delicate effervescence and a lively, frothy off-white head. The aroma holds lots of doughy bread, some mashed ripe bananas, hints of orange, yeast. The flavor is medium sweet with plenty more bready malts, a bit of yeasty dough, lightly toasted hay, ripe bananas, subtle cereal, faint citrus peel. Light to medium bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Sweet finish, some lightly sugary and doughy bread, suggestions of alcohol, touches of banana and bubblegum, slight bitter toasted hay. Nicely balanced. Fairly refreshing. Well executed for the style.
