"Today there are more than ninety small craft breweries in Italy, some of them producing excellent beers. My favorite is the brew pub Birra Baladin, run by Teo Musso, a talented brewer in the tiny Piemontese hilltop town of Piozzo, a quick drive from the famous wine villages of Barolo and La Morra. He spent some time at Brasserie a Vapeur in Belgium, and its influence shows clearly. Musso’s well balanced beers are largely brewed in Belgian styles, and he certainly has a Belgian sense of creativity, using herbs, spices, and unusual grains with abandon."
Garrett Oliver, The Brewmaster's Table, p. 19

Le Baladin Wayan is made of 17 different ingredients {barley, wheat, spelt, oats, rye, different types of hops & many different spices besides coriander. Teo calls it a "Saison" but it is certainly his personal definition of a saison. Aroma & 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 & bitterness is by a high degree provided by those many spices some of which are very very unusual in brewing {Teo does not disclose them} . This quite unusual combination of spices & herbs greatly impacts the finish which again is very different from "regular saison-style ales‚"
