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.

75 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden yellow with a huge white head. Aroma is mild spiced, caramel/biscuit and light yeasty fruity. Spiced to floral flavoured with a mild sweetness and vague yeast touch. Floral from back of the nose into the finish. Medium dry to slight sweet finish.

Ungstrup (37632) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2005
An unclear orange beer with a fast disappearing white head. The aroma is sweet spicy with coriander standing out. The flavor is of wheat and oranges, while the body is thin.

Golden coloured. Light bodied. Very lively, spicy and complex. A good, true to style saison.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2005 (Bottle 75 cl) I guess the word "coriandolo" from the the back-label means coriander, and Jesus does this wonderful spice shine through - apparently also together with camomile and bergamot. I also detect some wheat here. Very unfiltered with big, floating lumps of...whatever. To begin with the colur of this beer is golden, but if you pour the sediment also it changes to a muddy grey. The bouquet changes also from a refined fruitiness to something quite indefineable. The lesson must be: hesitate to empty this bottle completely. But still an excellent beer, and the first certified organic Italian beer. But a Saison? Nah, not really... 251204

Hazy amber beer. Soft palate. Light creamy malt with a soft orange tone. A pretty simple saison but goes well with some grub!

cgarvieuk (24515) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 1, 2007
Bottle i brought with me to an italian resteraunt ... clowdy orange ...zesty spicy citrrus nose ... sharp fruity ... slightly sweetened grapefruit ... little spicyness ... very juicy ... little tart in linger... well balanced and put together. In contrast with KnutAlbert i found this went great with my Spagetti Carbonara as it wqs sharp and clean enouth to cleanse palate and cut across the food.

Leighton (21258) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2012
Bottle at the Beer, Bocce and Boozer Tasting, London. I got this beaut at Kikko in Parma. She pours hazy gold with a fine, white foam head. Doughy-yeasty-fruity nose, light citrus, faint lemon. Medium to strong sweet flavor with lots of juicy orange and wheaty yeast, along with white sugar. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet, doughy finish with zesty citrus and yeast. A very drinkable - if sweet - saison. Good stuff.
