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.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2013 On tap at Pizzeria Paradiso in Old Town, Alexandria. Nose carries a light acidity with some peach and other stone fruits. Light grain. Could use some additional carbonation.

Palme (3015) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 23, 2014
0.75l corked bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a light cloudy golden looking one, loaded with floaters and sediments. All this under a small quite disappointing off-white top. Smells a bit old. Mild yeasty and definitely fruity sweet. It has a nice peppery spicy touch to it. Lots of ginger and some cardamon. It just needed a little bit of temperature and time in the glass then it opened up. It’s a little it above average on the carbonation level this and it has a thin oily feeling in the mouth. Soft peppery spiced flavors. A good amount of sweetness here. Zesty melon and it lacks in bitterness. Not my cup of saison. A tad to sweet and perhaps even what I will call sugary sweet. 15.01.2014

Opaque golden yellow with small white foam ring. Aroma is little like sour green apple. Tastes nice, little sour, some carbonation. (Milano 201403) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

IPAgutten79 (363) - Skui, NORWAY - MAR 8, 2014
Lys gylden med medium skum. Aromaen er krydder, gress og gjær. Noe humle. Smaken frisk og litt ukarakteristisk for en Saison. Mye krydder og gjærsmak. Kjenner ikke mye til humla. Medium konsistens. Mildt bitter i ettersmaken.

tomer (1530) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - MAR 6, 2014
Draught, stable frothy head, clear light gold colour, aroma of rubber and yeast with hints of coriander, sweet fruity candy flavour with some lemon drops and a hint of tea, and spicey black pepper tingling. Nice and drinkable but a bit too sweet to my taste.

Flaske 0,75l fra Vinmonopolet, Bestillingsutvalget. Brukt som matøl på R124 25 Apr 13. Aprikosfarget. Litt uklar. Lavt skum. Forsiktig krydderaroma med antydning til frukt. Smaken i samme gate.

Theydon_Bois (7005) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2014
Keg at Open Baladin, Roma, 09/02/14. Lightly hazed golden with a good sized white head that thins then retains as a pond. Nose is floral, straw, lemon rind, grass, tangerine, herbal tones. Taste comprises bitter orange, lemon rind, citric tinged straw, light spice, tangerine, floral notes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi dry closure. Easy drinking saison but lacks a little depth for me.

Lilja (1408) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 21, 2014
Skivsläpp Marching Band. Smak och doft av aprikos, jäst, citron, citrus, örter, hö, koriander, honung och vitt te. Rund och len. Lite sträv i gommen, välbalanserad mellan smakerna. Fruktig, fantastisk doft med en tydlig beska med smak av chili och peppar. Lagom av allt där smakerna inte slåss om utrymmet utan kommer till tals var och en. Ligger kvar länge i gommen.

Cloudy pale orange with little head. Lightly pungent citrusy aroma with a semi sweet touch. Somewhat citrusy flavor with a bready maltyness. Decent enough.
