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 !

jgb9348 (6433) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 20, 2017
Super hazy orange and bronze coloured body with a very large, six centimetre tall, fast-dying off-white head, but a very good looking beer indeed. Aroma of super sour green apples, bunches of yeast, wheat, coriander seed, wheat, alcohol, grain and some funk - very nice and incredibly complex - even in the nose! Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive effervescence; Strong rich yeast flavours with a lot of complexities, from fruit which shows apples, pears and cherries along with a good dose of oak and dry flavours along with some wheat, coriander seed, banana, bubble gum and even cedar. Aftertaste shows a rich complexity that is filled with sour notes, alcohol, dry woods and yeast notes, but somehow this much better than expected, and a great beer! Overall, this was superb, and I’;m very happy I tried this and even happier that I didn’t have it carry it back from Switzerland! I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 24-January-2017 for US$13,99 sampled at home in Washington on 19-February-2017.

Tria, Philadelphia tap: pours golden with little to no head in my pour. Aroma is wood, vinegar, apple. Taste is fairly sour. Definitey makes you pucker a bit. Woody and complex. Nice.

3.7
freretoc (1935) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAY 5, 2016
Bue en bouteille de 75cl chez Chloé et François, couleur cuivrée, pas de mousse et quasi pas d’effervescence. Nez sur la pomme, le raison et le lactique. En bouche attaque acide lactique, puis la pomme, continuité sur le pruneau belle continuité acide qui tient bien en bouche bel équilibre final sur le bois.
