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.

(Bottle, 0.75 l - BBE June 2016, from Systembolaget, 20141206) The beer poured golden and lighly hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness and orange. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, orange, spices, black pepper, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, spicy, black pepper and bitter. A confusing saison. Aroma made me expect orange juice but I got rather nice brew with too intense pepper taste.

Surprising, yes it is a saison but to me there is more malt than usual... It is surprisingly fresh, the aroma is very pleasant with less yeast than most saison. Nice golden color and of course hazy plus a lot of herbs :-) Taste is also fresh, malty, citrus some complexity due do the herbs but very drinkable.. A fun and well tasting beer..

Zekada (425) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - OCT 30, 2014
Bottle from systembolaget. Sweet, fresh citrusy smell and some wheat. Pours orange with a rich white head. Taste is easy and enjoyable. Very smooth and drinkable with some fruits and a hint of yeast. Palate is smooth and silky, very easy. Overall a decent beer. Could taste more but not bad

Cervesa que se surt del que un s’espera d’una saison, però molt bona, el pebre té bastant protagonisme. Cerveza que se sale de lo que uno se espera de una saison, pero muy buena, la pimienta tiene bastante protagonismo.

Vignale (2493) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2014
Flaska från SB. Gyllenfärgad, högt vitt skum, lite champagneliknande. Trots alla kryddor en ganska stiltypisk saison med en ganska försynt men komplex och nyanserad smakbild. Frisk, ötrig och kryddig med koriander, citrus och lite vitpeppar i eftersmaken. Gott

Bottled 750ml. -from Vrutak Zagreb. Cloudy orange/golden coloured, small white to off-white head, quite fizzy, peppery fruity nose. Moderate malty, peppery fruity, light spices and yeasty with notes of coriander and cinnamon. Dusty spicy finish. Well balanced and very good brew.

750ml bottle. Hazy yellow body with a medium white head. Bready and fruity with a distinct peppery flavor and a hint of yeast. Light on the yeast in comparison to many other versions.

Pours a hazy dark golden body. Nice farmhouse aroma. The taste is also very nice and balanced with tones of hay and malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
