The La Tentation blends three different kinds of fermentation. Itís 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 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!

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 thereís also a pleasant bitterness. Pleasant carbonation, medium body. Fruity, lightly funky towards the finish. Refreshing and tasteful. 140906

Bottle, shared by me in a location remote to my dining room.
Pours a hazy blonde with a good head and decent lacing on the glass.

The aroma is dirty laundry with some earthy funk, some light furriness and yeastiness with a nice floral character.

The flavor is tart and yeasty. The beer is basically dry with some fruity apple character, but more particularly focused on the more bitter apple rind. Itís got some floral flavor and bitterness to it as well.

Pretty cool beer I guess.

Good holy god, this was phenomenal. Iíve had it in the bottle, Iíve had it on tap, but just last night at Crescent and Vine in Astoria, Queens, NY, it was magical. Perhaps it rested in the keg for just the perfect amount of time to fully reach itís acme. Just the right amount of (mild) wild funk, yet fully tamed by the complex acidic fruit flavors and backbone of malted grains. You only need one glass of a beer like this, and itís emblazoned upon your mental palate forever.

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.
