COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The La Tentation blends three different kinds of fermentation. It’s a Saison recipe that is first fermented with Dupont yeasts, followed by a second fermentation with Belgian witbier yeast which has spent one year maturing in oak barrels. The final part of the fermentation comes from wild yeasts from an orchard at the foot of the Jura Mountains. The yeasts and bacteria found naturally on the skin of native Reinette Blanche apples, coupled with months of barrel aging gives the La Tentation a very refreshing acidity. This acidity is balanced by apple fruitiness and hop bitterness, which is characteristic of old-style Saison. Let yourself be tented !

Fritz123 (939) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle at the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton. Shared with Brian. Solid pour with a hazy yellow-orange and a huge white head. Aroma was barnyard, funk, pears, apples, papaya, and hay. The taste was pears, apples, papaya, fresh hay, barnyard, horse blanket, and cheese. Great mild saison with a nice spriteness to it. Great carb, light body. Funky finish. Loved it!

Lilja (1553) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2014
Drucken på fat på Nya Tröls med Daniel. Bärnstensfärgad, krämigt skum. En karaktärsfull ganska syrlig old-style saison. Mycket ladugård, vetesyrlighet, jästkaraktär, vita druvor och i bakgrunden sötsyrliga äpplen och lite äppelskal. Riktigt bra.
