COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

I was gona have Fade to Black but the pub didnt have it so i had this one instead. 500ml Bottle. Dark amber with a huuuge white head which made a barman struggle to pour. Fruity and flowery. It was enjoyable enough but not really memorable.

Scopey (6719) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2014
Bottle from Valhalla’s Goat, Glasgow. It pours hazy deep amber with a medium white head. The nose is doughy, peppery, light sweetness, florals and a touch of citrus peel. The taste is bitter-sweet, over-ripe banana, dough, spice, sugar citrus fruits, candy, apple, pear and earth with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Erring towards the sweet side for me and just not as drinkable as I had hoped for. Still, not bad.

JohnRMurdoch (3253) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - FEB 22, 2014
500ml bottle @ Inn Deep. Muddy brown with massive foamy head. Mild caramel hop aroma & flavour. Quite smooth. Not a typical saison which is probably why I like it.
