Beer poured from bottle into a stemmed wine glass.
A - Beer poured with an orange colored body; body had small amounts of visible carbonation and had a solid amount of floating sediment; some lacing formed on the glass but faded rather quickly; one finger sized white colored head formed and dissipated very quickly
S - Sour white grape; sparkling wine smell; yeast; wheat; herbal; breaded malt scents; slight herbal nose
T - Sour white grapes, semi-sweet and dry sparkling white wine flavor; subtle hints of spices and a touch of yeasty sourness
M - Crisp and clean; watery consistancy; aftertaste is slightly sour and finishes off with a lingering bread malt taste
D - Not bad for a Saison ale, could have been a bit more sour; I felt that it wasn't much of a challenge for my palate and left my taste buds asking for more; otherwise, it was very easy to drink, I would definetely have another

Poured from a 75 cl corked bottle (labeled "Drink by 4/15") in Levanto, Italy, a town just north of Cinque Terre
Appearance: Cloudy orange golden. The one finger head dissipated quickly to no head. There was a nice columns of bubbles throughout the entire bottle.
Aroma: Mostly malty with some candy-like sweetness. There was only the barest suggestion of hops and also a slight aroma of oranges.
Taste: This beer has a very enjoyable sourness along with the sweetness -- almost a honey-like or nectar-like sweetness. There is some coriander. Hops are pretty much absent from the taste.
Mouthfeel: The beer feels good in the mouth. It has an appropriate body and level of carbonation.
Overall: I've found a new favorite! Wayan has a very good sweet/sour balance and is well spiced. However, this is a very sweet beer and may be too sweet for some. Since I'm not a hop-head, the absence of hops was OK with me. This beer was good to the end. It paired well with a salty gnocchi dish and a salty mussels dish. All in all, a fun-to-drink, enjoyable beer.

I loved this sour number, served up fresh at Birreria at Eataly in NYC. The aroma, color and froth were just what I'd expect from a Belgian style sour, and the mouthfeel and flavor were outstanding. Not too thin and acidic like many sours, this beer deserves a second helping... no wait, I mean I deserve a second helping of this beer, and did.
Serving type: on-tap
