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.

tomer (1787) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - MAR 6, 2014
Draught, stable frothy head, clear light gold colour, aroma of rubber and yeast with hints of coriander, sweet fruity candy flavour with some lemon drops and a hint of tea, and spicey black pepper tingling. Nice and drinkable but a bit too sweet to my taste.

Flaske 0,75l fra Vinmonopolet, Bestillingsutvalget. Brukt som matøl på R124 25 Apr 13. Aprikosfarget. Litt uklar. Lavt skum. Forsiktig krydderaroma med antydning til frukt. Smaken i samme gate.

Theydon_Bois (9915) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2014
Keg at Open Baladin, Roma, 09/02/14. Lightly hazed golden with a good sized white head that thins then retains as a pond. Nose is floral, straw, lemon rind, grass, tangerine, herbal tones. Taste comprises bitter orange, lemon rind, citric tinged straw, light spice, tangerine, floral notes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi dry closure. Easy drinking saison but lacks a little depth for me.

Lilja (1781) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 21, 2014
Skivsläpp Marching Band. Smak och doft av aprikos, jäst, citron, citrus, örter, hö, koriander, honung och vitt te. Rund och len. Lite sträv i gommen, välbalanserad mellan smakerna. Fruktig, fantastisk doft med en tydlig beska med smak av chili och peppar. Lagom av allt där smakerna inte slåss om utrymmet utan kommer till tals var och en. Ligger kvar länge i gommen.

Cloudy pale orange with little head. Lightly pungent citrusy aroma with a semi sweet touch. Somewhat citrusy flavor with a bready maltyness. Decent enough.

Holmen1 (2767) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 12, 2013
Flaske fra polet, hjemme: ah, hvilken frisk og forførerisk duft som stiger opp gjennom et flott skum! Aprikos, fersken, ananas og andre lyse frukter. Smaken er likeledes, et suverent øl å drikke mens man rater siste Cardinaltreff, kommer lett i evangeliseringsmodus i løpet av en slik flaske.
