I can't say no to Wäls. Guilherme was nice enough to haggle Paulo for a bottle and bring to me in California. To that I say "valeu pra os dois de voces!" A saison that's brewed with four adjuncts; almonds, lime, coffee, and pineapple. Coming out a 375 ml corked and caged bottle, on to the beer:
A small head which drops to a creamy lace sits on top of the flame torched orange colored liquid. The aroma doesn't seem much like a saison's, however it is pleasant. I get the pineapple, I don't get much lime, I also get this yeasty banana cream note which makes it for me.
Something's in the yeast, as it adds a banana cream flavor which eventually makes the canvas for the taste. There's some nuttiness found, and a few hints of vague tropical fruits. It's not rustic nor funky, but it doesn't need to be. It's medium bodied with an easy amount of carbonation running through.
Wäls 42 is a good beer on its own, no matter if you think this fits the saision or blonde ale category. A fun "lighter" alternative to Wäls' Belgian line of beers.
