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.

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

Sigmund (5796) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2015
750 ml corked and waxed bottle, from Vinmonopolet, Nettbutikken. Probably 2 y.o. when consumed. ABV is 5.8%. Golden colour, lightly hazy. White head goes rapidly from moderate to none. Aroma of saison yeast, but also less pleasant notes of over-ripe and decaying fruits, moldy wet grain, compost and solvent. Fairly refreshing flavour, medium dry, a little fruit, not very complex but nice enough to drink. Less spicy than expected. Might sample again from a fresher bottle, hopefully the aroma will be better then.

Bottle from GBBF 2015 and drunk at home. Pours hazy golden lasting beige head. Slightly funky aroma with some spice. Funny having this after so many English saisons. This is a little more cereal led. Herb. A little funkier than some saisons. Decent.

GlassBrass440 (295) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 8, 2015
Pours a cloudy gold with short lasting white head. Light citrus and spice aromas. Flavours bring orange zest, coriander, and lemongrass. Black pepper makes a big appearance as it warms. The finish is quite dry leaving a light bodied beer near the point of watery. Very effervescent carbonation.
