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.

750ml served in a tulip glass. Pours a cloudy yellow color forming a medium to small white head with small retention and some small spotty lacings left in the glass. Smell is very fruity and sour. Strong notes of apples, apple vinegar, apricot, green grapes, oak, sweet pale grains and flowery hops. Metallic. Slightly sweet upfront that becomes quickly dry and sour. String notes of apples, apple vinegar, apricot, green grapes, oak and citrus hops. Mild hops bitterness. Metallic hints. Medium body and carbonation. Apple cider aftertaste. Excellent drinkability. Much more to a wild/sour than to a Saison. However, quite smooth and easy drinking to a Sour Ale. Excellent.

SinH4 (1601) - Garching, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2015
Hazy orange color with red head. Apple skin aroma, oranges, some cinnamon. Taste is Bratapfel, more apple skin, more cinnamon, but also some yoghurt body. It has some sort of a christmas feel to it. The finish is with lots of minerals. Low carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Good!

crossovert (10313) - Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2015
750ml bottle. Golden pour. This is a unique beer that is dry but spicy, with some earthy apple skin notes and fairly heavy cloviness making it a good combo in a saison.

Bottle, 75cl, at Baran. A clear, dark golden beer with a two-finger sized off-white head. Curtains occur. A bit weak on the nose, but pleasant, with tropical fruits, a faint pepper and citrus touch, as well as a generic fruityness and a malty hint. Some yeast in the flavor, with more or less the same elements as in the flavor. More evident though, and there’s also a pleasant bitterness. Pleasant carbonation, medium body. Fruity, lightly funky towards the finish. Refreshing and tasteful. 140906
