4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml olive colored nicely designed bottle, with an embossed logo and a wax sealed cork, poured into a snifter glass. Appearance is hazy tenné colored with a small white head that dissipated quickly leaving no lacing. Aroma of herbs, spices, peaches and orange peels. Flavours of herbs, peaches, orange peels, spices, wheat bread and caramel. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied, smooth texture and soft carbonation. Wayan is another excellent beer from Le Baladin, it’s well balanced and not overly sweet like many other non Belgian interpretations of the style. Complex mix of spices in the flavour, lingering pepper on the finish.

Refined and quietly subtle, sophisticated and very rewarding. Spicy, malty, sweet. Amber colour, medium white head. Mid-sweet, light bitterness, yeasty, but not as obvious as a Belgian version. Fruity.
Medium body, spicy and sweet finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
75 cl bottle in Teku (also tap at Baldin Milano). Pours a medium frothy white head; hazy orange/golden colour. Smells fruity/ripe fruit, wild yeasts, very spicy, floral and slighlty funky. Taste is grainy (is multigrain), apples, citrus (has orange zest), cinammon, gingery; low to medium/sweet, medium/high sourness, very sharp spicyness, especially in the end, with a very definite pepper note. Lively carbonation, sour and spicy finish, towards dry; almost any bitterness, a bit of cider notes. Characterized by the many different spices used, very refreshing, nice to be matched with fish/seafood dishes

Dobre, ladnie wygladajace piwo z lekka metnoscia oraz biala piana. Aromatyczne koloru jasno pomaranczowego. Bukiet slodowo zbozowy. W smaku lekkie ale o wyraznej nucie przyprawowej. Cynamon, kolendra oraz biszkopty. Slod lekko wyczuwalny takze chmiel jest delikatny. Wspolgra tu wszystko mimo tej delikatnosci.
