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.

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!

Vignale (2106) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2014
Flaska från SB. Gyllenfärgad, högt vitt skum, lite champagneliknande. Trots alla kryddor en ganska stiltypisk saison med en ganska försynt men komplex och nyanserad smakbild. Frisk, ötrig och kryddig med koriander, citrus och lite vitpeppar i eftersmaken. Gott

SamTheBarrel (462) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - SEP 26, 2014
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. Very enjoyable.

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...
