Le Baladin Wayan is made of 17 different ingredients (barley, wheat, spelt, oats, rye, different types of hops and many different spices besides coriander. Teo calls it a "Saison" but it is certainly his personal definition of a saison. Aroma and palate are rather complex, ie it takes some time to find your way through it, so to speak. The different hops are barely noticeable. The balance and bitterness is by a high defree provided by those many spices some of which are very, very unusual in brewing. This quite unusual combination of spices and herbs greatly impacts the finish which again is very different from "regular" saison-style ales. Food pairings: Fish, salmon, salads, filet mignon and other steaks, Thai food.

rauchbierlover (588) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 29, 2013
Very uncommon to be a saison. Though it’s made with many spices and different hops, it’s not spicy like a saison is meant to be. Looks and taste more like a blond ale. But it’s ok

Rune (7775) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 10, 2013
750ml bottle bought at Vinmonopolet Hamar and shared with friends. Gives a good shot followed by smoke when opened. Creamy, airy, white head. Dotted spots to the glass. Cloudy golden body. Sweet fruity nose, hints of lemon, lightly spiced. Sweet orange taste joined by clove and wheat-like sweetness. Dry bittersweet end. Soft in the mouth. Food friendly and with some interests (Ottestad, 15.02.2013).

PhillyCraft (3144) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Sample courtesy of Annie at Alla Spina. Not really that sour, grapey, light nail polish, fruity booze, very winey. Weak bodied. Nothing special here.

esp0r (1910) - NORWAY - JAN 27, 2013
Bottle from Vinmonopolet Stor enjoyed at home
Orange hazy, big white head. Smells of light malts, yeast esters, phenols and bakers yeast - with som faint spices in t he back. Moderate sweet, quity spice infuses, yeast flavors as well and some malts. Light bitter. This is a strange one; i don’t find it very saison’ish; not light either. It’s kind of a thick cerial soup with yeast and spices. Not the best from this brewery
