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 !

Bottle, 06/02/2014. Pours hazy straw gold, small dense foamy head rests to a fine haze on the surface, thin ring of lacing around the glass. Aroma is pale straw malts, yeast and mild grassy hops, overlying apple fruitiness, mildly tart, vanilla, vinous character,farmhouse finish. Taste is softly tart fruitiness- apple, white grapes, peach , some yogurt, moderate acidity, pronounce vinous notes, vanilla, oak, woody finish. Light body. Really a nice surprise, reminiscent of some HF beers but not as refined- solid barrel-aged saison.

Appearance: this beer pours pretty much all head, in fact it overflows as soon as you pop the too, the white head settles pretty quick but remains dense, the beer is a clear average golden color Aroma: apple, barnyard funk, wild, some bitterness, lemon possibly Taste: very sour, strong tartness, some apple, lemon lime Palate: lively carbonation, sour bitter aftertaste, leaves mouth dry Overall: a very delicious beer, very sour for a saison, tart as well, smells good, has a very nice wildness to it, still very refreshing and sessionable

Bottle. Hazy golden beer with a large white head. Aroma is spicy with notes of green apples, sour vinuous fruit, citrus and wheat. Flavor is spicy with notes of green apples, funky grapes, white wine and sour gooseberries. Pretty nice interpretation of a saison.
