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.

750ml bottle: Golden yellow pour with a pillowy white head. Very nice aroma of spicy yeast, honey malt and earth. Some alcohol rounds out the nose. The body is really peppery, which is nice. Some rye adds to the multi-dimensioned body. A very interesting take on the style. Saison is one to go to the fringe with and this beer certainly does that.

Lele (337) - Padova, ITALY - APR 23, 2016
APPARENZA: giallo intenso, quasi ambrato, torbido. Schiuma bianca, fine, poco abbondante e poco persistente. AROMA: decisamente speziato, gradevole. Soprattutto pepe rosa, leggermente balsamico e miele. GUSTO: prevalentemente speziato e mieloso, con una punta di acidulo. Amaro assente, anzi una nota mielosa di dolce che, insieme alle altre spezie, rende la birra non scontata. Carbonizzazione bassa.

Couleur dorée; petite mousse blanche qui disparaît rapidement; arômes et goût maltés, fruités (banane) et épicés; bière un peu trop douce à mon goût avec finale poivrée

MGantzel (178) - Aalborg, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2016
Denne saison har et lidt uklart gyldent udseende med et medium hvidt skum. Øllen har en frisk citrus aroma og smager sødt frugtig af citrus med en bitterhed. Medium karbonering.

Aroma of fruits, citrus and malty notes. Semi-clear golden liquid with a short lasting white head. Medium sweetness and light bitterness. Very summerly beer and easy drinkable. Average soft carbonation, a bit watery texture, medium body.

Bottle in Taormina, Sicily. Might be because of the setting that I rated this so high. Citrus start and then the spicing starts to come through. Quite good actually. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rafaelagp (27) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - FEB 5, 2016
Pours a white, very dense head that doesn’t last long. Body is very hazy, orange and of medium carbonation. Aroma is not very intense, herbal and spicy. Taste follows aroma, with some fruitness and a lasting spicy finish. Very interesting beer.

Hazy golden colour, small head that fades soon, leaving a good lace. Sour aroma of grass, fruits (pomelo?), coriander, cinnamon, pepper. Medium to light body, soft carbonation. Taste is sweet, fruity, hot, pepper, roses. Spicy and bitter finish. Great.

Brewhemia (146) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2015
Hazy light yellow color with very little white head. Nice sour aroma of grass and herbs as well ass a vanilla and toffeee like sweetness. The taste is fresh and grassy I think. It has a citrussy sourness to it and a light sweetness with sourness dominating though. Low bitterness. Over all it has a unique taste too it in the balance between it all. I like it! A bit too low carbonation to my taste.
