Le Baladin Wayan is made of 17 different ingredients (barley, wheat, spelt, oats, rye, different types of hops and many different spices besides coriander. Teo calls it a "Saison" but it is certainly his personal definition of a saison. Aroma and palate are rather complex, ie it takes some time to find your way through it, so to speak. The different hops are barely noticeable. The balance and bitterness is by a high defree provided by those many spices some of which are very, very unusual in brewing. This quite unusual combination of spices and herbs greatly impacts the finish which again is very different from "regular" saison-style ales. Food pairings: Fish, salmon, salads, filet mignon and other steaks, Thai food.

750ml bottle: Golden yellow pour with a pillowy white head. Very nice aroma of spicy yeast, honey malt and earth. Some alcohol rounds out the nose. The body is really peppery, which is nice. Some rye adds to the multi-dimensioned body. A very interesting take on the style. Saison is one to go to the fringe with and this beer certainly does that.

Bottle (33cl, BB 5/19) from Enoteca Sileno (an excellent Italian deli in Melbourne). Pours deep hazy golden with a dense white head that persists. Aroma is orangey and grainy, some peppery and straw notes. Palate is medium bodied and spiritely with dryish bittersweet flavours, subtle spices and a low bitterness. Overall quite pleasant although there are plenty of more complex Saisons out there.

Jasno pomarańczowe mętne piwo, piana biała co najwyżej średnia lecz dobrze się trzyma. Aromat głównie zioła, przyprawy, kwiaty drożdże trochę owoców cytrusowych. W smaku podobnie dużo ziół i przypraw, trochę przypomina witbiera. Ciekawy saison

Bottle. Somewhat hazy gold with a white head that mostly fizzes away. 3 Aroma of spiced and toasted grain, crackers, bread, hay. (Since I ate soba the other day I feel confident in saying there's buckwheat in here too). Some oranges and spices. The considerable malt/grain complexity is overshadowed a bit by the spices (white pepper, coriander, maybe mace, cardamon?) on the palate. Not all that sweet but it doesn't dry out all that much at the end. Deep.

Den dufter sgu ok, ikke "dør" lidt ..For en lys, grumset øl (ufiltræret) så har den som så ingen skum (øv) - Smagen er fin, men igen, den dør hurtigt, ingen eftersmag. Det er en ren øl, den overrasker dig ikke, hvad du smager er hvad du får. Ikke ens betydende med at det er dårligt, det er bare ikke på øverste hylde! - Tænk smørrebrød og sommer, så går du ikke helt forkert i byen :-) 94 kr - 75 cl

дуже сподобалось дане пиво. раніше пив не одне із додаванням перцю, але в даному усе з гармонією, не є пиво гострим і водночас має унікальні аромати спецій і 5-ти перців які укріплюються 5-ма різними солодами amber, heavy cloying sweetness, lightly bitter,
