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!

Bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours hazy golden with a rather small frothy and fizzy white head that doesn’t leave much trace while dissipating. Smell is slightly estery and phenolic with dough, baked pears, marzipan, dry soil, pepper corns and lemon zest. Taste is slightly sweet, tiny bitter, estery and phenolic with white bread, dough, pears, apples, marzipan, dry soil, pepper corns, sheet metal and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is round, tiny dry, tiny tart and light bodied. Finish is estery and phenolic with dough, pears, apples, hay, dry soil, pepper corns, sheet metal and lemon zest. Ok...

mikeyo1 (210) - Linköping, SWEDEN - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle @ home. Pours hazy golden with a fizzy head. Fruity and slightly funky aroma of ripe fruits, wet hay, wheat, oranges, spices and red apples. Dry and highly carbonated/sticky taste of oranges, pepper, hay, flowers & coriander. Has a really intense and lasting white pepper note lingering in the aftertaste.

ST247 (380) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUL 11, 2014
Sample from tap @Baladin Milan. Pours pale yellow with white adhesive head. Aroma is a bit metallic, herbal. Taste bit watery but you feel the pepper in the back of your mouth. Not much body.

brianza_ale (91) - ITALY - JUL 6, 2014
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

Grzesiek79 (3214) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 1, 2014
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.

POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2014
Once again an exciting Partly cloudy golden beer from Baladin, this time a very spicy Saison. Taste and smell of pepper. Full-bodied summer beer with high carbonation. It s just before you sneeze by the smell sf pepper Delicious beer without the hops that are in focus

sblsimone85 (251) - USA - JUN 6, 2014
Saison classica molto speziata nei profumi con un acceso sentore agrumato. Buon equilibrio e corpo medio con una buona beverinità e un finale leggermente pepato. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85
