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.

Voivod (304) - Como, - MAY 17, 2003
Pale orange colour, nice head, really lasting. Strong apricot and peach aroma. The flavour is very fresh and fruity with hints of peach, apricot, apple and plums. The finish is spicy, with traces of corn. Really pleasant!

Saison anomala, giocata molto e forse un po’ troppo sulle spezie, bergamotto in particolare. Schiuma evanescente

CEZ (403) - Milano, ITALY - FEB 20, 2015
Straw golden body, thin head. Subtle floreal (chamomile) and fruity yeast aroma. Honey sweetness up front, elegantly balanced by a slowly increasing, longly lasting, distinct pink pepper-like finish. Mouthfeel is medium to thin. Mild and smooth. Le Baladin stay true to their tradition, offering another sophisticated, innovative and style-defying creation where nothing is too bold or extreme.
