Big thanks to Beerzebub for the bottle. Bottle SB 852, best by May 2016. The brew pours an orange-amber hue and is topped with a voluminous antique-white cap that deposits copious sheets of lacing upon the glass. The nose is a delicious and tantalizing melange of tart orchard fruit including underripe peach, apple and pear. There is also a very green grassy note with some undertones of white grape tannin. The whole thing is rounded out by a Brett nuance that is somewhere between Band-Aid and pineapple, and more toward the former than the latter. Taste-wise, it is very refreshing and juicy, though not terribly sweet. There are tart tropical fruity notes to lead the way: guava, passion fruit and papaya are implied along with the aforementioned orchard fruits. There is also a bit of a lemony citrus zest note. The feel is authentically Belgian, though the beer is domestic; the expansive creaminess, the balance between refreshing and toothy; they have nailed it all. A very very good beer overall; one I definitely want more of.

Pours a shade somewhere between light-gold and deep-straw; musky, cloudy, and almost completely opaque, topped off with a volatile, lively white head that sits for a few minutes before fizzling into nothing. Apple skins and white grapes jut out into my nostrils as I bring the glass closer to my face, accompanied by a mild, underlying tartness. Some partial barnyard and funk aromas hang in the back; corky and musky, but remain somewhat secondary to the sour fruits. Not quite acidic, but sharp enough to tell you that this beer is probably going to be sour.
The taste, surprisingly enough, contains much more funk and much less sour than the aroma was leading me to believe. Some mild apple and pear skins (and possibly some other light fruits) enter with a very mild tartness and a soft sweetness which fades quickly as the Brett flavors get launched from a canon, right to the forefront of the flavor profile. Midway through, the funk hits hard; dirty barnyard, wet wood, old cork, and must. As the Brett flavors run their course, a bitterness starts to crescendo softly in the background and leads right into the aftertaste. Some very light fruity flavors are left on the palate after the beer is gone, also with a slight bitterness and a bit of that ol' funk. Medium-ish body with very lively carbonation leaves a crisp mouth feel and a pretty dry finish.
They take their Brett seriously over at Logsdon - this baby was no joke. Aroma had me thinking it would be mostly tart and a little funky, but it was just the opposite. Certainly not a bad thing, though. The flavors work well together and the funk is controlled pretty well - it just has to be what you're looking for. Can't wait to try the Peche n' Brett.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
A: Gushed all over the counter, Lots of foam that lasted for several minutes. But its a nice cloudy orange color.
S: Like Brett, some minor pear notes, sourness with a bunch of farmhouse zest.
T: Like combining a Saison and a sour into one bottle and shaking them with a drop of pear juice. Quite good.
O: Great, really cool interesting brew.

Bottle shared with a friend, poured into two snifters.
A: Murky orange color. Massive foamy/creamy head. Amazing lacing.
S: Sour and peppery notes. Apples, pears, pepper, some funkiness. Tons of brett earthiness.
T: Yeast pepper (spiciness), lemon, pears. Some tartness but very nice, not overpowering. Some bready flavors to balance things out.
M: Carbonation is good, a bit prickly with a nice dry finish.
O: This beer is amazing, reminded me of HF E.

The Bruery Provisions
Hazed, yellow and golden with a moderately sized off-white head that leaves spiderwebs of gorgeous lace all the way down the glass.
Very nice, appropriate, aroma of Brett funk, earth, hay, grass, mild hops, and a bit of pepper.
The flavor is just as nice as the aroma with the Brett playing the largest flavor role, balanced nicely by moderate bitterness, earth, grass, hay, and a bit of spice.
Medium bodied with high carbonation.
A joy to drink. I've had this probably four times now and have loved it each time.
