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 !

Bottle. Malt Attacks, Brussels. 7.3%. Hazed, pale luminous yellow. Thin, tight, white head. Nose has pressed dessert apple. Lemon rind. White grape juice. Light, cheesy, sweaty funk. Just a hint of the Dupont yeast. Fresh cut oak. Smells fantastic. Taste has an oaky, vanilla sweetness, turning dry, with apple skin, grapey tart, and light sourness. Easy drinking. Minimal acidity. Clean and bright. Nice balance of sweet and sour on the finish. Really good.
