COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 shared with edvard at Nydalen Bryggeri, august 23rd 2013. Cloudy golden body, big white head. Aroma of citrus fruits, zest, pepper and bubblegum. Taste is zesty with clove and pepper, flowery hops and a light sweet malt taste. Refreshing and dry, with a bitter and spicy aftertaste.

Holmen1 (2546) - 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.

Draft. Crystal clear amber body, small white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, orange, some tart, faint lemon. Taste is moderately sweet, orange/tangerine. Light-medium body, minimal carbonation. Didn’t get any sense of a saison.

mansquito (3444) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Pizzeria Paradiso, Alexandria tap ($9): Pours cloudy yellow with a small head. Aroma is soapy, spices, with some non-saison funk, but a funk nevertheless. Taste is just a barrage of spiciness in every which direction. The finish and aftertaste is tinged with a bit of chilly pepper. Unusual beer, but not in what I would consider a good way. Complex, but not for any good reason.

Una buona birra, saporita! Non è particolarmente amara! Mi ricorda una Saison.

Foffern (1252) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUL 9, 2013
Bottle shared with ClubGonzo. The colour is cloudy deep dark straw, and has a large off-white colored head that is like whipped egg white. The aroma is dominated by light malt, straw, spices, flowers, nutmeg and a little apricot. The taste is interesting and spicy with flowers, a little anise and honey. Also has a nice sweetness. Mouth feel is smooth and rich, with a light bitterness. This beer is very balanced and nice. The spicy touch makes it an interesting beer with food.

ClubGonzo (4107) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 4, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy light brown-orange body with floating sediments and a big foamy white head. Aroma is dense tones of blue cheese, ripe apricot, syrup, grains and heather honey. Complex and original. Taste is cereals and grains, heather honey, floral grass notes, hints of camomile and herbs. Not as impressive as in the aroma, but starts out pretty nicely. After some time, however, it sort of rolls over and becomes very boring. Fizzy carbonation (which I find suitable as it provides a bit of freshness), medium body. Pretty nice, but could have been a lot better.
